Iowa makes long-awaited change to depth chart following Week 8 loss to Ohio State
Well Iowa fans, you might have finally got what you wanted. Iowa football announced that there’s going to be an open competition at quarterback between Alex Padilla and Spencer Petras.
247Sports’ David Eickholt released the news. After how Petras played Saturday changes are going to be made to the depth chart.
Iowa Depth Chart is out: QB is Spencer Petras OR Alex Padilla.

Petras finished the game with 49 yards passing and 2 interceptions. Padilla relieved Petras later in the game and had 32 yards passing with 1 interception. Saturday was Padilla’s first game of the season.
Petras has started every game for the Hawkeyes this season and has 989 yards passing with 2 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.
Regardless of what quarterback was on the field Ohio State still crushed Iowa 54-10. This decision could end up as nothing in the end, but at least it’s a start.
Iowa needs to figure out the QB situation before it’s too late and the team misses out on bowl season. We’ll keep you updated if a change at QB is announced ahead of the Northwestern game.
