Kirk Ferentz gave special recognition to many of his seniors after Iowa defeated Kentucky 21-0 in the 2022 TransPerfect Music City Bowl. Led by a dominant defense full of seniors, the Hawkeyes held the offense of the Wildcats to only 185 total yards and 10 first downs.

After the game, coach Ferentz talked about his group of talented seniors that contributed to the big win and the 2022 season:

“(Jack Campbell’s) an unbelievable person, unbelievable player. Sam LaPorta, Riley Moss we got some great guys. Those guys are senior leaders. They mean so much to our program. So happy for all those guys, good to always go out on a win.”

Jack Campbell led the team in total tackles (10) and solo tackles (8) as well as accounted for 1 sack and 2 tackles for loss in the Music City Bowl. Sam LaPorta led the team in receptions (5) and receiving yards (56). Riley Moss accounted for a total tackle and a pass breakup.

Ferentz also addressed after the game that he made a major error when addressing the sponsor for the bowl game. He corrected that mistake while referring to Iowa’s trip to the bowl game as a “TransPerfect experience” for the Hawkeyes.

“Our guys played great today. I made a critical error yesterday, I said Transparent Bowl in the media, and this has been a TransPerfect experience so we really appreciate it.”
