IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Most coaches only get one chance to turn around a program.
Iowa's Kirk Ferentz is poised to revive the Hawkeyes for the third time in 12 years.
Many dismissed Ferentz and the Hawkeyes after a 4-8 finish in 2012. But Iowa answered its critics with eight wins last season, including victories at Minnesota and Nebraska and a trip to the Outback Bowl.
A veteran roster and a favorable schedule should put Iowa in position to contend for the inaugural Big Ten West title in 2014.
