Iowa is 4-2 this season and one major reason for the Hawkeyes success has been sophomore quarterback Nate Stanley.

A Menominee, Wis. native, Stanley has thrown for 1,290 yards, 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions this season.

The 6-foot-5, 212-pound quarterback saw action in seven games last year, completing five of nine pass attempts for 62 yards as a true freshman.

Iowa’s offensive coordinator Brian Ferencz raved about Stanley’s development during his Wednesday press conference:

Iowa is on its bye week and returns to action on Oct. 21 against Northwestern on the road.
