IOWA CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Iowa State and Nebraska play their spring football games on Saturday. The Hawkeyes will be in West Des Moines for practice, with their spring game to follow two weeks later on the 26th.

Iowa is looking for six new starters on defense. The offense has eight starters back. Three are in the offensive line, including #68, Brandon Scherff from Denison, Iowa.

The left tackle could have left for the NFL and made a lot of money. But Scherff came back for his senior season and Kirk Ferentz says expectations are higher for the veterans.

"Obviously we just want them to be better players this year," said Ferentz. "We expect the same thing out of Scherff. We expect him to be a better lineman than he was a year ago. If they're not, we're probably not doing our jobs right and they're not doing there's right. The interesting part is to see how things move forward and how guys move foward individually."

One website says Scherff is the second best o-line prospect in the 2015 NFL draft.
