2013 Season Outlook

Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz felt his team had a positive spring practice leading into the 2013 season, and feels his team will continue to show improvement throughout the month of August in preparing for the upcoming season. Iowa will open fall practice with 14 returning starters, including its two leading rushers and four of the five leading receivers on offense, and its top three tacklers on defense. Still, there are a number of spots to fill on the depth chart, even after the young Hawkeye team was able to add valuable experience throughout the spring. The added experience of last season could play a major role in Iowa's quest to reverse its 2012 fortunes of five losses by an average of 3.2 points per loss.
