WEEK 1: Northern Illinois

Well, if that was not the most Kirk Ferentz type game to claim the record, I don’t know what would be!

Slow start, only a 3-0 lead at halftime, Hawk fans worried, but then, halftime adjustments, and the Hawks cruised to a 33-7 victory, giving Kirk win #144 in his Hawkeye career.

And while it was not the most pretty game to watch (aside from the slow start, at least 5 dropped passes that Nate had on target), it was a comfortable win for most of the second half, and we did not really show any kind of new wrinkles in the offense for the Clown coaches to game plan on.
