Iowa looking for line to open more holes for backs in '19

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz believes that the Hawkeyes' blockers - and not necessarily their running backs - will need to improve next fall for the program to rediscover the running game.

The Hawkeyes, long known as a team that likes to soften up opponents on the ground early before breaking off big gains in the second half, averaged just 3.95 yards per carry last season.

But while a lot of the blame for that shaky performance went to the trio of Mekhi Sargent, Toren Young and Ivory Kelly-Martin, Ferentz placed most of it on a line that all too often struggled to open holes in the running game.
