Iowa Hawkeye Media Day: Year 14 of the Kirk Ferentz era

The University of Iowa held media day for the 2012 Iowa Football team in Iowa City on Monday afternoon. Head coach Kirk Ferentz is entering his 14Th season as head coach.  Ferentz was also offensive line coach from 1981-89, under former head coach J. Hayden Fry.

The Hawkeyes will kick off the 2012 season at Soldier Stadium in Chicago vs. Northern Illinois, with a 2:30 pm start on ESPNU.

After the visit to the Windy City, Iowa returns to historic Kinnick Stadium for four straight home games including the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series event against Iowa State on Sept. 8. That first of seven home games is sold out, however, a limited number of tickets remain for the next two home events of the Hawkeyes: Sept. 15 against intrastate rival Northern Iowa and Sept. 22 against Central Michigan. 

The Hawkeyes kick off Big Ten play on September 29Th vs. Minnesota at Kinnick.  It will also be the 2012 Homecoming Game for Iowa.
