Iowa HC Kirk Ferentz returns to practice for Music City Bowl prep
Iowa football head coach Kirk Ferentz has returned to practice following a positive test for COVID-19. He tested positive on Dec. 17 and was considered asymptomatic according to Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.
Ferentz had to self-isolate at home until Saturday where the Hawkeyes Twitter account for football released a picture of him back on the field:

Iowa has been prepping for the final game of the season as the Hawkeyes will take on the Missouri Tigers in the Music City Bowl. If the Hawkeyes win the game, they would finish the season at 7-2. That would mark their seventh straight win after starting out 0-2 to begin this season.
Quarterback Spencer Petras will have to be good again if the Hawkeyes are to pull that off though. In eight games this season, he has 1,569 yards passing with nine touchdowns to five interceptions.
Kickoff for the Music City Bowl will be at 4 p.m. ET this coming Wednesday. It will be televised by ESPN.
