During the press conference, reporters asked Ferentz about quarterback Joe Labas. “I’m not sure weve ever gone into a game where our one and twos are gone, not in the roster,” Ferentz said. “Fortunately we had an extended period here.

Hes a competitor, hes tough. Im sure hes going to do a great job for us.”
