Jake Rudock, Cody Sokol and C.J. Beathard are battling for Iowa's starting quarterback job.
IOWA CITY, IA (KTIV) -- -
The Hawkeye football team is in the middle of spring football practice. It's week two of spring drills.
Normally, head coach Kirk Ferentz keeps his practices closed to the media, but cameras were allowed in on Wednesday. Much of the focus is on the quarterback battle.
Jake Rudock was the backup last year. Junior college transfer Cody Sokol and redshirt freshman C.J. Beathard are also getting a look. None of Iowa's current QB's have taken a snap in the Big Ten.
"Having snaps under your belt always helps," said Rudock. "Just like when you see a guy who's played a full year and comes back, usually he's pretty good. He's comfortable. He knows what he's going to see. He knows what to expect. Bottom line is everyone came to play football and when you get the chance, it's going to be nice. It shows something to the other guys that you worked hard over the off-season, you worked hard during the season, during film study, during everything. Earning it is a lot better than just having it handed to you."
