Iowa Football Completes Spring Drills

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Spencer Petras leads the quarterback race at the end of spring practice.

The Hawkeyes closed out drills with an open practice over the weekend. Petras, Alex Padilla and Joe Labas  are competing for the starting job.

Petras has started 19 games the past two seasons while Padilla started three games last season while Petras was injured. Labas is a redshirt freshman.

That’s Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz. Offensive lineman Connor Colby feels the experience he gained last season will be a plus. The former Cedars Kennedy standout become the first true freshman to start on the offensive line since 2017.

Colby made 11 starts at guard last season for an Iowa offense that struggled with inexperience up front.

The Hawkeyes will open the upcoming season at home against the SDSU Jackrabbits. The opener is set for Saturday September 3rd.
