IOWA CITY – University of Iowa football student-athlete Tristan Wirfs was cited for Operating While Under the Influence in Iowa City early Sunday morning.

“While we are currently gathering additional facts, I am disappointed in Tristan’s decision making based on the information that’s already been confirmed,” said Gary Barta, the Henry B. and Patricia B. Tippie Director of Athletics Chair. “He is subject to the rules and regulations of the UI Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, and the rules and regulations of coach Kirk Ferentz and his program.”

Wirfs is a sophomore from Mount Vernon, Iowa, and was to be the starting offensive tackle. He could face team penalties, including a suspension from one or more games.
