 Alex Padilla, Southern Methodist, Player News


  The SMU football program has been no stranger to the transfer portal, bolstering many positions with veteran experience throughout the offseason. After Tanner Mordecai's departure to Wisconsin, Rhett Lashlee and the Mustangs were ready to look forward to the future at quarterback. That future will include another experienced player at signal caller.

On Friday, former Iowa quarterback Alex Padilla took to Twitter to announce his transfer to SMU. In three seasons with the Big Ten program, Padilla completed 77 of 157 pass attempts for 821 yards and three touchdowns to go with four interceptions. Padilla, a Greenwood Village, Colo. native, announced his intention to transfer from Iowa on Nov. 29. He was originally a three-star recruit in the class of 2019, according to 247Sports. - Dallas Morning News

  Alex Padilla threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in his first career start, and No. 19 Iowa withstood three fourth-quarter comeback attempts to beat Minnesota 27-22 on Saturday. The Hawkeyes (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) led 24-16 before Minnesota's Tanner Morgan threw a 68-yard touchdown pass to Chris Autman-Bell with 5:28 to play. The Gophers (6-4, 4-3) went for the two-point conversion, but Morgan's pass was tipped by Iowa safety Dane Belton and fell incomplete. The Gophers got the ball back at their own 10-yard line with 3:08 left. Morgan was sacked for a 7-yard loss on second down, and his fourth-down pass was broken up by Iowa's Matt Hankins.

Caleb Shudak's 29-yard field goal provided the final margin, and then the Hawkeyes' defense bowed up one more time when Minnesota drove to the Iowa 39. The game ended with Joe Evans sacking Morgan. Padilla's 1-yard touchdown dive in the second quarter put Iowa up 10-3. He threw a 72-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Jones early in the third quarter to give the Hawkeyes a 17-13 lead. "Going out there in the first half, seeing the entire crowd in Kinnick for my first start, (I was) just super excited," Padilla said. "Couldn't imagine being in this position when I was a kid, but it was something I have always dreamed of." Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said among the players and coaches, there wasn't much talk about Padilla getting the start. "We just acted like it was his turn, his time. He is the starter this week," Ferentz said. "He's an even-keeled guy, as you've seen. I thought he did a good job." Jones was impressed with the pass Padilla threw him for the touchdown. - Iowa/AP College Football

  Alex Padilla could feel the jitters when he got the call to go into the game. Once he stepped on the field, he sure looked comfortable, though. Padilla took over for the banged-up Spencer Petras and led three scoring drives, Tyler Goodson ran for 141 yards and a touchdown and No. 19 Iowa beat Northwestern 17-12 on Saturday night to stop a two-game losing streak. "Definitely some nerves," Padilla said. "There were definitely some of those. Just excited. I have a great group of guys around me. They make my job easy. Just excited to get in there and play some." The Hawkeyes (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten) got the bounce-back win they were seeking coming off lopsided losses to Purdue and Wisconsin that sent them tumbling 17 spots in the AP poll, though it wasn't exactly a breeze. Northwestern (3-6, 1-5) pulled to 17-12 with 2:21 remaining on Andrew Marty's 31-yard touchdown pass to Evan Hull and quickly got the ball back after Iowa went three and out. But Dane Belton immediately sealed it with his second interception, sending the Wildcats to their third straight loss.

Padilla, a sophomore, led two touchdown drives in the first half in his first extensive look after Iowa went nowhere on its first three possessions. And the Hawkeyes won for the first time since beating Penn State on Oct. 9, after getting outscored 51-14 over the previous two games. "It felt great," Belton said. "That's what you play for. You love the game and you love to celebrate victories. ... That's football. That's college football. And for us to be able to do that as a team is the biggest thing overall." Padilla came in late in the first quarter and completed 18 of 28 passes for 172 yards. The sophomore helped get the offense going after Petras, limited by a shoulder injury he suffered at the end of last week's game, went 2 of 4 for 4 yards. - Iowa/AP College Football
