With their first unbeaten Big Ten season in 80-years out of the way, the Iowa Hawkeyes can sit back and enjoy the bowl speculation. The Hawks became the first team in school history to win 11-games and claimed at least a share of the Big Ten title in the process with a 45-21 rout of Minnesota. Iowa rolled up 364 yards of rushing, held the Gophers to just 80 and took advantage of eight turnovers to finish conference play 8-0. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says that’s been the most enjoyable thing, having so many guys step up each week to make it truly a team effort. In his first season at the helm back in 1999 the Hawks finished 0-8 in the Big Ten. Ferentz says that makes this a special season and he gives credit to the players who built the program over the last several years.Ferentz wants his team to savor the season, he says it’s a feeling that money can’t buy.
