-Peyton Mansell goes into August as the No. 2 quarterback behind two-year starter Nate Stanley. Can Spencer Petras push him for the spot?

-Iowa now lists the CASH position and the LEO linebacker together as an “or.” It’s here to stay, folks.

-Nick Niemann is now a backup at weak-side linebacker after being groomed as a LEO. Redshirt freshman Dillon Doyle is in the mix at middle linebacker after being recruited as a LEO.
