DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) - Spring is in full force, which usually means the return of baseball.

But for football fans, it also means a first look at their college teams.

Iowa doesn't hold their spring game for two more weeks, but they gave the fans a first look at the team in Des Moines, Iowa Saturday.

Iowa is coming off an 8-5 season that saw the Hawkeyes fall to LSU in the Outback Bowl.

Kirk Ferentz returns 13 starters from last year's team.

The Hawks have been practicing for a few weeks now but they say it's good to give the fans a look at their progress.

"We do a lot of things behind closed doors, and when people get to see our work, it's pretty good for us," said senior wideout Kevonte Martin-Manley.

"It wasn't a great practice, but it was our ninth workout," said head coach Kirk Ferentz. "It just give us a chance to get out in the state a little bit and say thank you. There are an awful lot of people that come to Kinnick seven times a year and we just want to try and express our thanks."

Iowa will hold their spring game April 26th at Kinnick Stadium.
