Iowa DT Jaleel Johnson accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Johnson has earned praise from Todd McShay and Chad Reuter this season. His 2016 season has been his best, posting 10 tackles for loss including 7.5 sacks. Iowa recently helped defensive tackle Carl Davis reach the NFL, but Davis suffered from hot-cold bursts during his time with the Hawkeyes.

Iowa senior CB Desmond King accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

The reigning Thorpe Award winner as the nation’s best defensive back, King isn't big, but he's very sticky in coverage. He's logged 10 interceptions in the last two seasons and was a consensus All-American last year.

Iowa redshirt junior LB Josey Jewell expects to return to school for the 2017 season.

"I don’t think I’ll be leaving," Jewell said. "I think everything’s staying here. I just haven’t thought about it too much." As of now Jewell is on track to graduate after the fall semester of 2017. He recorded 105 tackles this year.

Iowa junior RB Akrum Wadley had 105 rushing yards and a touchdown in a 40-10 win against Nebraska on Friday.

LeShun Daniels (158) also ran for more than 100 yards for the Hawkeyes. Today, Daniels became Iowa’s first runner since 2011 to top 1,000 rushing yards in a season. Wadley, meanwhile, is only 32 yards shy of that mark. Most of Wadley's production this afternoon came on a 75-yard touchdown.
Nov 25 - 8:03 PM

Iowa junior RB LeShun Daniels Jr. rushed for 158 yards and two scores in a 40-10 win over Nebraska on Friday.

Kudos to the Hawkeyes (8-4, 6-3 Big Ten), who close out the regular season with three straight wins -- two of them over the Huskers and Michigan -- after they could have packed it in following the stunning loss to North Dakota State and the demoralizing 27-point loss to Penn State. Daniels heads into the postseason with 1,013 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Iowa senior QB C.J. Beathard threw for three touchdowns in a 40-10 blowout win over No. 17 Nebraska on Friday.

The senior quarterback shined in his last game at Kinnick Stadium, completing 10-of-15 passes for 144 yards in the breezy victory. Beathard went 7-1 in trophy games at Iowa. He and his teammates will learn which bowl game they are playing in a week from Sunday.

Iowa senior TE George Kittle (foot) practiced on Tuesday.

Kittle has missed consecutive contests against Michigan and Illinois, but matters are looking improved in advance of Friday's regular-season finale against Nebraska. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder told reporters flat-out that he "will be out there playing" come Iowa's Senior Day showdown with the Cornhusker. Kittle has worked to a 19-289-2 receiving line this season.

Iowa junior RB LeShun Daniels rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 28-0 win over Illinois.

Between Daniels and punt returner Riley McCarron, who had a a punt-return score, the Hawkeyes didn't need anything through the air via QB C.J. Beathard (80 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT). The Hawkeyes end the regular season at home against Nebraska next Saturday.
Nov 19 - 4:22 PM

Iowa senior T Cole Croston (leg) will not play against Illinois on Saturday.

After sustaining a leg injury in October, Croston has appeared in just one of the last four games. The 6-foot-5, 295-pound senior has drawn draft buzz at times during his career with the Hawkeyes, but TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote last month that Croston's whipping at the hands of Northwestern edge rusher Ifeadi Odenigbo in Week 5 may well have caused him to slip out of late-round consideration. There is still plenty of time for him to redeem himself through the draft process, so long as his health allows.
Nov 15 - 4:11 PM

Iowa senior TE George Kittle (foot) is a question mark for Saturday's game against Illinois.

Kirk Ferentz relayed on Tuesday that Kittle has not done any work in practice during the early portion of the week. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound senior has been dealing with a foot injury since an October 15 contest against Purdue. While he was able to play in subsequent contests against Wisconsin and Penn State, Kittle sat out Saturday's win over Michigan. He is working on a 19-289-2 receiving line over the course of seven games this season.

Iowa redshirt senior CB Greg Mabin will miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a fractured leg.

Mabin initially fractured his lower right leg during the practice week leading up to Saturday's huge upset of Michigan. He will sit out contests against Illinois and Nebraska as Iowa puts a bow on the regular season. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound redshirt senior's status for bowl action has yet to be determined. He wraps the 2016 campaign having recorded 37 tackles, three passes defended and a forced fumble over the course of nine games played.
Nov 15 - 3:41 PM

Iowa senior QB C.J. Beathard completed 8-of-19 passes for 66 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 14-13 win over Michigan.

Victory rarely comes with so few passing yards, but victory tastes sweet regardless of the yardage total attached. Beathard's favorite target, if you can have a favorite target while completing eight passes, was running back Akrum Wadley, who caught five of 'em for 52 yards and a score. Beathard had previously thrown for at least 100 yards in all nine of Iowa's games. He didn't keep up that streak (be nice), but with the win, Iowa improved to 6-4. They shall bowl.
Nov 13 - 12:40 AM

Iowa junior RB Akrum Wadley totaled 167 yards from scrimmage, plus a touchdown, as the Hawkeyes toppled Michigan 14-13.

Iowa made the game as Iowa as possible and it worked, as the Hawkeyes came away victorious in a contest which saw the teams combine for 169 yards passing. Wadley rose above this 1930's football homage to rush for 115 yards on 23 carries and catch five passes for 52 yards and a score. The Hawkeyes implemented some passing plays for him over the bye, prior to their being crushed by Penn State last weekend.
Nov 13 - 12:28 AM

Iowa senior QB C.J. Beathard completed 18-of-26 passes for 204 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 41-14 loss to Penn State.

Just a dreadful, uncompetitive contest from Iowa in this one. Beathard hit Akrum Wadley for a 12-yard score in the first half and Jerminic Smith for a 36-yard score in the fourth. That was it for the Hawkeyes' scoring efforts on the evening. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 203-pound Beathard has thrown for 1,584 yards with a 13/5 TD/INT ratio through nine games played. Now sitting at 5-4 on the season, Iowa will need to win one game against Michigan, Illinois or Nebraska over the final three weeks if they are to reach a bowl.
Nov 6 - 12:26 AM

Iowa junior RB Akrum Wadley has seen practice time at slot receiver.

Looks like the Hawkeyes decided to try something new during the bye week. As Wadley explained it, "We have a few plays that have me and LeShun [Daniels] on the field at the same time. It’s been looking good out there." The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder has caught 18 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown out of the backfield this season. Before Iowa hit the bye, Wadley had turned in his best receiving effort in eight games, catching seven passes for 72 yards against Wisconsin. Said QB C.J. Beathard of Wadley's receiving prowess, "You can put him anywhere on the field and he has the ability to make plays with his feet. Clearly he’s an explosive player. Anytime you get him the ball in space, it’s good." Iowa will have a chance to try this experiment against Penn State on Saturday. Those in PPR leagues who see Wadley on the waiver wire should feel free to take a speculative flier. He already holds low-simmering value from his natural position.
