Iowa’s 2014 was another mediocre 7-5 performance followed by a bowl loss, but fans are excited for a new quarterback in 2015. CJ Beathard has a strong arm that should infuse life into an offense that really didn’t do much last season. Running back Jordan Canzeri takes over for Mark Weisman and will use his increased speed to his advantage. The receiving corps isn’t going to blow anyone away but Tevaun Smith is a competent #1. Losing OT Brandon Scherff, the #5 overall pick in the draft, is a big blow, and the line depth is solid but unproven. The defense is an even bigger question mark, however, and the linebacker is probably the biggest cause for concern. But the pass defense was actually one of the best units in the Big Ten. The frustration came from many tight losses--in the regular season, all but one of their losses were within a touchdown. Old QB Jake Rudock was frequently criticized for throwing too many checkdowns instead of being more aggressive with his throws. But it’s a new day in Iowa City, and Beathard looks to take advantage. The Iowa Hawkeyes operate under head coach Kirk Ferentz in at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. They’ve made 12 bowl appearances in their last 14 seasons, but this isn’t the same team that won at least 10 games each year between 2002 and 2004. Since an 11-win 2009 season the team hasn’t won more than eight games in a season, much to the dismay of a fan base hoping to take their Orange Bowl victory to the next level. They’ve sent 258 players to the NFL (26th-most) including Andrew Tippett, Chad Greenway, Dallas Clark, Shonn Greene, and Charles Godfrey. As one of the original Big Ten teams they hold long-standing rivalries with Minnesota and Wisconsin, a recently-founded rivalry with Nebraska’s 2011 move to the Big Ten, and a non-conference trophy with Iowa State. 2015 home opponents include Illinois State, Pitt, North Texas, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, and Purdue.
