Things to watch during Week 2 of play in the Big Ten Conference:
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa and Iowa State head into Saturday's Cy-Hawk Game at Kinnick Stadium off season-opening wins, but the moods in Iowa City and Ames are decidedly different this week.
Hawkeyes fans watched their team sputter offensively against South Dakota State, and predictable calls for a new starting quarterback followed.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — When a team is coming off a season in which it had one of the worst offenses in the nation, all options are open to fix it. For Iowa, that means opening the competition at quarterback.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — When it comes to being coy about personnel in order to gain a tactical advantage, clearly it’s like father, like son in the Iowa football program.
Following a week of preparations for Saturday’s Citrus Bowl in which Hawkeyes’ offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz repeatedly refused to name a starting quarterback, head coach Kirk Ferentz coyly did the same on Friday.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Spencer Petras will be the starting quarterback when No. 15 Iowa plays second-ranked Michigan in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday night.
Petras was listed first on the depth chart released at the start of the week, and coach Kirk Ferentz made it official Tuesday.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Iowa once again did what Nebraska has been unable to do all season, and that's why the Hawkeyes own at least a share of a Big Ten West title and the Cornhuskers head into winter off their worst year since 1957.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Alex Padilla is set to make his second straight start at quarterback when No. 18 Iowa hosts Illinois this week.
That doesn't mean the Hawkeyes have moved on from Spencer Petras.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa quarterback Alex Padilla is described by coach Kirk Ferentz as “even-keeled.”
That was the approach Ferentz and his staff took with Padilla this week as he prepared to make his first career start Saturday against Minnesota.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Alex Padilla got his first opportunity to play meaningful snaps for Iowa and did enough to impress coach Kirk Ferentz.
Now he's days away from what probably will be his first start in place of the injured Spencer Petras.
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Alex Padilla could feel the jitters when he got the call to go into the game. Once he stepped on the field, he sure looked comfortable, though.
Padilla took over for the banged-up Spencer Petras and led three scoring drives, Tyler Goodson ran for 141 yards and a touchdown and No.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa was in victory formation and the emotion was about to spill over as dusk settled over Kinnick Stadium.
Spencer Petras took the last snap, took a knee and took off, apparently thinking he could get off the field before the students and other fans pouring out of the end zone seats could catch him.
Things to watch during Week 6 of play in the Big Ten Conference:
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Spencer Petras barely had time to exhale in the second quarter. The Iowa quarterback would come off the field following a scoring drive — then immediately return after the defense forced yet another turnover.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Spencer Petras threw for three touchdowns and ran for two and No. 5 Iowa took advantage of seven Maryland turnovers in a 51-14 victory Friday night.
The Hawkeyes (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) intercepted five of Taulia Tagovailoa’s passes, and they outscored the Terrapins 31-0 in the second quarter as Maryland completely unraveled.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa made it through September undefeated with the remainder of the Big Ten schedule looming.
But it wasn’t easy for the No. 5 Hawkeyes to get to this point.
They opened the season with wins against ranked teams Indiana and Iowa State.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A quick glance at the statistics would indicate Iowa's Spencer Petras is an average Big Ten quarterback.
One number pops out, though, and illustrates a major reason the fifth-ranked Hawkeyes (3-0) have won nine straight games.
Kent State (1-1) at No. 5 Iowa (2-0), Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EDT (Big Ten Network).
Line: Iowa by 22 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa cornerback Riley Moss wasn't sure what happened.
Moss' 30-yard interception return for a touchdown, the first of his two scores in the game, helped start No. 18 Iowa on the way to a 34-6 victory over No.
