The Iowa Hawkeyes will close out the regular season this weekend with a visit to Minnesota and with a victory their most likely holiday destination will be Tampa for the Outback Bowl. The Hawks are 7-4 after a hard fought 22-17 win over Purdue. The Gophers are also 7-4 after a loss at Wisconsin.
Ferentz says it won’t be an easy game, as none of the games in Minneapolis have been easy. But, he says it’s good to get one more win and a chance for another.
It was another big day for running back Shonn Greene who finished with 209 yards of rushing and a couple of highlight touchdown runs. Greene is just a junior but it may have been his final game at Kinnick Stadium. With the season he has put together he could be a high pick in the NFL Draft next spring.
Greene says he will sit down when the season is over and look over his options. But he says he won’t make any decision until after the bowl game.
