Pregame Notes from Sports Information


The Iowa defense was strong again, forcing Kentucky into a bowl-record 10 punts, holding them to 2-18 on third down, and only 185 yards of offense. But more importantly, two pick-6 interceptions for a TD broke open the game in the second quarter, one by Xavier Nwankpa, the other by Cooper DeJean.

Joe Labas got his first start and playing time of his career due to Spencer Petras' injury and the transfer of Alex Padilla. He struggled as expected, but was able to give Iowa a 7-0 lead by connecting multiple times with Luke Lachey and Sam LaPorta early in the 2nd quarter.

It was the first bowl shutout since a 27-0 victory over Texas Tech in 1996. The 10th bowl win at Iowa for Kirk Ferentz ties him for most bowl wins in Big Ten conference history. He was also able to get revenge on last year's loss to former Iowa player and head coach of Kentucky Mark Stoops
