IOWA CITY, Iowa -- This time last year, it was unclear who would be the starting quarterback for the Iowa Hawkeyes.
That is no longer the case heading into the 2015 season. There is no quarterback controversy this spring in Iowa City with former Hawkeyes signal caller Jake Rudock now at Michigan.
The Hawkeye offense now belongs to C.J. Beathard, who looked decent in Saturday’s spring game. He had a few nice throws, but also some misses throughout the day.
With Beathard now in charge, he receives all the reps with the team’s starters, which is a huge factor for a starting quarterback’s confidence and consistency.
In 2014, he played eight games and finished with a 56.5 completion percentage, 645 yards passing, five touchdowns, and two interceptions.
Beathard and the Hawkeyes open up the season at home on Sept. 5 against Illinois State.
