Ferentz Live Tuesday

Oct. 15, 2012

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Coming off his 100th career win as a Hawkeye, University of Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz will address the media Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. (CT) about Saturday’s primetime match-up against Penn State.

The weekly briefing with local, regional and national media will be held in the Hayden Fry Football Complex and be available live from start to finish on Hawkeye All-Access, the multi-media portal inside hawkeyesports.com, the official World Wide Web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The game, which will begin at 7:01 p.m. (CT) inside Kinnick Stadium, will be televised live on the BTN. Eric Collins, Derek Rackley and Jon Jansen will call the action. The game can also be viewed online at BTN2Go.com.

Saturday’s game is the 25th meeting all-time; the series is even, 12-12. The Hawkeyes have won three of the last four and eight of the last 10 games with the Nittany Lions, but Penn State was victorious last season, 13-3, in Happy Valley.

Penn State and first-year head coach Bill O’Brien are riding a four-game winning streak after dropping its first two games of the regular season. The Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0) were idle last week following their 39-28 victory over Northwestern on Oct. 6. Penn State also routed Illinois, 35-7, Sept. 29 in Champaign, Ill.

The Hawkeyes, winners of two straight, scored a 19-16 double overtime victory at Michigan State on Oct. 13. The Hawkeyes scored the game-tying touchdown with 55 seconds remaining in regulation before Mike Meyer hit two field goals in overtime, including a game-winning 42-yarder in overtime No. 2.
