C.J. Beathard Makes First Career Start For Iowa


The Iowa Hawkeyes announced late Saturday night that C.J. Beathard will start the team’s game against Purdue today.  The contest, going on right now, is Beathard’s first career start and a chance to establish himself as the number one quarterback.

Beathard entered last week’s game against Pittsburgh down ten points, and led a stunning comeback after replacing Jake Ruddock.

In his career, Beathard has thrown 38 passes, completing exactly half for a grand total of 297 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.  The former three star recruit is a stereotypical pro-style quarterback and should provide the Hawkeye offense a nice spark for a team that has struggled to score points.

Iowa currently holds a 3-1 record as it begins the meat of the Big Ten schedule.
