Iowa posts 1st Music City Bowl shutout, tops Kentucky 21-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Joe Labas threw for 139 yards and a touchdown in his first start and Iowa posted the first shutout in the Music City Bowl's 24-year history by beating Kentucky 21-0 Saturday.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz capped his 24th season by matching the late Joe Paterno for the most bowl victories among Big Ten coaches with his 10th. This was the Hawkeyes' second shutout in a bowl game, following the 1996 Alamo Bowl, and the first by a Big Ten team since Penn State beat Texas A&M in the 1999 Alamo Bowl.

"I'm not the smartest guy in the world," Ferentz said. "One thing I've learned: If they can't score, then you got a shot that you're not going to lose. I know that. So if we could've written the script, it was perfect. Just really happy."
