Hawks Top Pitt, Begins QB Debate
PITTSBURGH, Pa – C.J. Beathard was the spark Iowa needed to jump start a stagnant offense. Beathard led the Hawkeyes to 17 points in the second half, and a 24-20 win at Pittsburgh.
Starting quarterback Jake Rudock left with a knee injury at halftime. Meanwhile, Beathard completed 7 of 8 passes for 98 yards. One of Beathard’s passes was a 62-yard catch by Damon Powell, Iowa’s longest play of the year.
When asked about his quarterbacks after the game, Kirk Ferentz told ESPN, “it’s a good thing to deal with, but we have faith in both guys.”
