QBs Undecided, Rugamba Out For Opener At Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa will face Wyoming’s Josh Allen, one of the nation’s most talented quarterbacks, without one of its starting cornerbacks in its opener.

Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz says sophomore Manny Rugamba will be suspended for the Sept. 2 home game against the Cowboys because of an offseason violation of team policy.

Rugamba is one of two new starting cornerbacks this season for Iowa, which lost Desmond King and Greg Mabin to the NFL.

Ferentz said Michael Ojemudia will move into a starting spot for the opener along with first-teamer Joshua Jackson, adding that freshman defensive back Matt Hankins will likely see time as well.
