IOWA CITY – Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz held a press conference Tuesday and talked about opening Big Ten play this Saturday in Minneapolis against the Golden Gophers of Minnesota.

“This will be a big test for us,” Ferentz said.  “They’re big and physical offensively.  I think they’re over 310 average, and we’re hardly that kind of size, so it’s going to be a real test for us.

Minnesota has opened its season with four straight victories while Iowa is 3-1.

Iowa is 0-2 in its first two trips to TCF Bank Stadium.

“Yeah, part of that is a credit to them, but part of the blame lies at our feet, too,” Ferentz said of the two losses.  “If we play like we did the last two times, we’re not going to win the game.  I’ll make that prediction right now.  I don’t know where they’re going to be.  My guess is they’re going to be ready to go and they’ve playing well, and my guess is they’ll be ready to go doing the same thing this week.”
