The Iowa football team named Jake Rudock its starting quarterback on Friday via a tweet from @TheIowaHawkeyes.
Jake Rudock named Iowa QB.. Ferentz: "All 3 returning QBs have competed well and improved in each phase of our preseason camp." #Hawkeyes— The Iowa Hawkeyes (@TheIowaHawkeyes) August 23, 2013
Ferentz: “We plan to start Jake in our season opener, and we are all confident he will do a quality job.” #Hawkeyes— The Iowa Hawkeyes (@TheIowaHawkeyes) August 23, 2013
The announcement didn’t come as a surprise, as Rudock took all the first-team snaps in Iowa’s most recent public scrimmage. The sophomore spent last season as the team’s No. 2 quarterback, but has not taken a college snap.
