Bouncing back from byes hasn't been Hawkeyes' habit
Iowa's football team is in a bye week. This is the seventh one the Hawkeyes have had in Kirk Ferentz's 12 years as head coach.
The results of the Hawkeyes in their games immediately after a bye:
1999 - at Michigan State L 49-3
2000 - Western Michigan L 27-21
2001 - Penn State W 24-18
2003 - at Ohio State L 19-10
2004 - Ohio State W 33-7
2008 - at Illinois L 27-24
That's a 2-4 record for a program that is 86-56 under Ferentz. Does this mean anything? Nah. It's just data.
