The opponent's view

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz discussed his team's offensive approach for Saturday's game against Indiana.

"In a perfect world, we would like to be balanced, and hopefully we can get the run and pass complementing each other, and I think we had a little success with that the other night," he said during his weekly news conference. "We did a little bit better job there. So in a perfect world, that's what we would like to do but you also do what the defense dictates a lot of times.

"I thought we ran the ball a little more aggressively Saturday, and that's something I'm hoping will see us continue to do."

Iowa is averaging 133.5 rushing yards per game, last in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes are second in the conference in passing offense, averaging 253 yards per game.

Ferentz also complemented IU wide receiver Kofi Hughes during the news conference.

"He's really been active and they have a veteran group of receivers and they are big, physical guys, too, and (Damarlo) Belcher is a big guy," he said. "They have got some good size for sure. It's a dangerous group."
