Brian Ferentz entered Friday’s Holiday Bowl with some tricks up his sleeve, and it helped Iowa score its first touchdown.

Lined up in the shotgun with a back to both sides, Nate Stanley handed the ball off to Mekhi Sargent, who ran to the left and pitched it to Tyrone Tracy coming to the right. With Tristan Wirfs lead blocking, Tracy trotted into the end zone for an easy six points.

The play gave Iowa an early 7-0 lead.
