Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz led his team onto the field for last week's 24-22 loss at Wisconsin.

It must look so familiar to Kirk Ferentz, this breakout Minnesota football season. Mediocre expectations, critics sneering at their schedule, a series of last-minute heroics and the growing euphoria as victories pile up - the longtime Iowa coach lived through it all just four years ago.

The 2015 Hawkeyes shocked college football, and perhaps even themselves, by going 12-0 in the regular season and earning their first Rose Bowl invitation in 25 years. Indeed, few coaches can appreciate the Gophers' accomplishments this year like one of their biggest rivals.
