Iowa Hawkeyes head coach Kirk Ferentz wasn't having any of Scott Frost's snap-problem excuses following the win over Nebraska on Friday afternoon.

The Hawkeyes continued their recent domination of the Huskers on Friday afternoon, as Iowa secured its sixth straight win over Nebraska.

Iowa topped Nebraska, 26-20. The Hawkeyes' win was sealed with a strip-sack of Huskers quarterback Adrian Martinez.

Nebraska actually played pretty well on Friday, though the Huskers dealt with some issues on offense. Frost's team had problems snapping the ball, leading to a change at center.

Frost said following the game that the Huskers' problems were related to Iowa players and coaches clapping too much during the game. Ferentz had a blunt response to that excuse.

“The officials said something to me about that at halftime,” Ferentz said postgame. “I'm like, okay. We told our sideline, the coaches. I don't know if players were clapping, told them no. The next thing I know, my headset is off. You don't pay attention. All of a sudden I see Cody Ince, let's go guys. I caught myself doing it. Good job, let's go.

“What the hell are we talking about? It's stupid, right? I have no idea. Plus I do know this. I saw across the field they had like a little clap routine for third downs or something … Anyway, I told the officials we told our guys. It's football. So maybe they need to change their cadence if it was interference of cadence. I don't know.”

Well then, there you go.
