IOWA CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
When the Iowa Hawkeyes open fall camp on Monday, there is no quarterback controversy.
Head coach Kirk Ferentz said it during his press conference at media day on Monday - Jake Rudock is the starting quarterback.
Rudock is coming off a sophomore season in which he threw for almost 2,400, with 18 touchdowns and 13 picks.
But the Hawks' backup, C.J. Beathard, proved to be a capable backup when Rudock was sidelined with injuries last year.
There's buzz around Iowa that the Hawkeyes could use a two-quarterback system at times this season.
But Ferentz says he doesn't expect any changes at the position, though it is nice to have a pair of guys that can perform.
"It's the exact opposite of last year," said head coach Kirk Ferentz. "We have two guys now that are experienced that we have confidence in. Last year, neither guy was experienced. We have hopeful confidence in both guys, but it's a lot better after you actually watch guys perform in competition. Happy about what we saw last year, happier about the attitude both guys have."
The Hawkeyes open their season August 30 against Northern Iowa.
