Iowa’s defense on a roll heading to Minnesota
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Perhaps the biggest question about Iowa's defense heading into October was the way it has used sophomore pass-rushing star A.J. Epenesa.

Iowa to promote LB Wade, keep bringing Epenesa off bench
Iowa will likely keep bringing sophomore defensive end A.J. Epenesa off the bench and move Barrington Wade into the starting lineup to replace the injured Nick Niemann at linebacker.
Defensive coordinator Phil Parker said Wednesday the goal is to keep the explosive Epenesa as fresh as possible. Epenesa leads the Hawkeyes (3-1, 0-1 Big Ten) and is tied for the Big Ten lead with four sacks, and he also has four quarterback hurries and two forced fumbles.
The return of Brandon Snyder to the Hawkeye secondary has been valuable in a number of ways.

At the midpoint of the season, newcomers are making a significant impact on the Iowa football team.

The contributions have come in a multitude of areas, with Tristan Wirfs making his first start at right tackle in last week’s game against Illinois and A.J. Epenesa now averaging more than 30 snaps per game at defensive end.
