Iowa Hawkies use 3 timeouts in the last seconds of the Minnesota Golden Gophers’ routine

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has been accused of leaving timeouts at the table in games. He will not let this happen on Friday night against rival Minnesota.

Ferentz used all three of his time with Iowa at 35–0 and 19 seconds while remaining at the frigid TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Minnesota, which gave up many of its starters to score and try to avoid a shutout, first calls a timeout after Iowa reached the 4-yard line. Iowa then proceeded to use all three of its timeouts.

In the next play, Minnesota made a 4-yard pass from Tanner Morgan to Rashod Bateman, but Iowa won 35–7 to retain the Floyd of Rosedale Trophy.

“They say I have a timeout, to get a look at what we were doing and reconsider.” “So we just wanted to make sure we had a good look at what we were doing. It makes no sense to take them to the bus with us.” [The media] Reminded me twice in the last 22 years.

“I thought we would take Floyd with us and leave the timeout here.”

Frantz and Minnesota coach PJ Fleck had a very quick handshake after the game.

“He called three timeouts, I don’t know,” Flake said. “I have no idea what happened.”

Iowa retained Floyd with a sixth consecutive win against Minnesota, the Hawkeyes’ longest streak in a series that began in 1891. The Hawkeyes’ social media team celebrated the victory, making fun of Flex’s “Row the Boat” motto.

Iowa, which started the season 0–2, has won its last two games by a combined score of 84–14.
