Kirk Ferentz had quite the reaction during the start of Iowa’s game against Illinois.

The Hawkeyes were facing a third & 14 and Ferentz covered his whole face with his mask even when the game was still scoreless:

After that was seen live, Illinois went up by 14 in the first half against Iowa which put them on upset alert. Unfortunately, though, there wasn’t a live reaction from Ferentz during either of Illinois’ touchdowns.

Iowa was able to score 35 unanswered points to ultimately win the game 35-21 but this reaction was still the highlight of the game.

We’ll have to see if Ferentz has another type of reaction next Saturday when Iowa faces No. 16 Wisconsin. The time of that game is still TBD.
