Spencer Petras replaced by Alex Padilla in first quarter vs. Nebraska
Spencer Petras left the game against Nebraska after going to the medical tent following a strip sack. Alex Padilla has now entered in the game in Petras’ place.
Petras got sacked and lost the football, staying down for an extended amount of time after the play was over. On the very next offensive drive, Padilla entered the game.
Petras has played in 11 games for the Hawkeyes this season. Padilla has appeared in 1 game for Iowa in 2022.

Padilla saw some more playing time last season after Petras went down with an injury late in the year. Padilla had 636 yards passing with 2 touchdowns in relief of Petras last season.
It’s starting to look like Padilla is going to have to will Iowa to a win and a B1G West title. Petras was seen mouthing the words “I’m done” to his teammates on the sideline.
Stay tuned for more updates from the Iowa game.
