Maryland cornerback Will Likely continued to garner postseason accolades Tuesday when he was named to the Associated Press All-Big Ten team as a first-team all-purpose player and a second-team cornerback.
A little more than a year ago, Maryland and Iowa squared off in a back-and-forth tilt at Byrd Stadium that featured the Terps erasing a 14-point first-quarter lead before holding off a frantic Hawkeyes comeback late in the fourth quarter for a 38-31 homecoming win.
Marc Morehouse is the Iowa beat writer for the Cedar Rapids Gazette. With Maryland set to travel to Iowa City, Iowa, to take on No. 10 Iowa, he was kind enough to answer some questions about the matchup and the undefeated Hawkeyes, one of college football's most surprising stories.
Kirk Ferentz said he has not been back in Baltimore much since taking over as Iowa¿s coach in 1999. However, he was the assistant head coach and offensive line coach after the Ravens' franchise moved to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996, and he spent three seasons in those roles before leaving for Iowa.
Jonathan Ogden, the first player ever drafted by the Ravens and the pre-eminent offensive lineman of his generation, will reach the pinnacle of individual recognition this weekend when he is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
