  12/13/20 - QB Spencer PetrasrSo/2023, Iowa, 6-5, 231 (DS#22 QB) + More +

  Spencer Petras has completed eight games as Iowa's starting quarterback, and it's still difficult to get a read on his ceiling. We do know that the Hawkeyes have won six of the eight games. We can say that Petras outplayed his counterparts in three of them (Michigan State, Illinois and Wisconsin). But it's also true that Petras has yet to put together a complete game. He sometimes started strong and struggled late (particularly against Northwestern and Minnesota). The past two games, he was terrible early but eventually found a rhythm. After the Week 2 loss to the Wildcats, which ended up deciding the Big Ten West title, Petras wasn't asked to do as much.

And, within the framework of the offense, he avoided crippling mistakes, with only two interceptions and a pair of fumbles during Iowa's six-game winning streak. Petras has completed 140 of 245 passes (57.1%) for 1,569 yards and nine touchdowns. That's a 119 efficiency rating that puts him in the bottom half of Big Ten quarterbacks. It's also why you can expect an open competition at the quarterback spot next spring, with Alex Padilla and Deuce Hogan in the mix, and perhaps a transfer if the Hawkeyes really don't feel they have the answer at the most important position on the current roster. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  Spencer Petras threw for 211 yards and two touchdowns to Ihmir Smith-Marsette to lead No. 19 Iowa past No. 25 Wisconsin 28-7 Saturday, the Hawkeyes' sixth win in a row. Iowa (6-2, 6-2 Big Ten) beat the Badgers (2-3, 2-3) for the first time since 2015 to reclaim the Heartland Trophy. Hawkeyes players celebrated by making snow angels after flurries picked up in the second half and blanketed the field in white.

Iowa's offense came alive in the second half after both teams struggled in the first. Petras found Smith-Marsette for 19-yard touchdown in the third quarter to give the Hawkeyes a 14-0 lead. The Badgers cut it in half after a muffed punt set them up at the Iowa 25, with Nakia Watson punching the ball in from the 1. Iowa took control from there. Petras connected with Smith-Marsette for a 53-yard touchdown to make it 21-7 late in the third. - Iowa/AP College Football

  Spencer Petras threw three touchdown passes and No. 24 Iowa scored 35 unanswered points after trailing by two touchdowns early to beat Illinois 35-21 on Saturday. Petras was 18 of 28 for 220 yards for Iowa (5-2) and Tyler Goodson had 19 rushes for 92 yards. Brandon Peters started the 8-for-8 for 101 yards and two touchdowns for Illinois (2-4), but went 2-for-10 for 15 yards before being pulled for backup Isaiah Williams midway through the fourth quarter. Williams was 7 of 16 for 83 yards and a touchdown. Iowa's comeback started with a 22-yard pass from Petras to Sam LaPorta to cut the Illini lead to 14-7. It was the sophomore's first career touchdown catch. Duncan Keith added two field goals to cut the Illinois lead to 14-13 at the half. - Iowa/AP College Football

  Spencer Petras was part of Iowa football history Saturday, even though he kept downplaying his contribution. The Hawkeye quarterback had a modest statistical line - 18 completions in 28 pass attempts for 186 yards. He nearly threw a touchdown, but tight end Sam LaPorta was ruled down a foot shy of the end zone. He nearly threw an interception, but Penn State's Jaquan Brister couldn't hold on to a pass that was underthrown.

What Petras did have was a 41-21 victory over the Nittany Lions, the first by a Hawkeye team in seven meetings. And he had the honor of being the quarterback who handed longtime Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz his 100th victory in Big Ten Conference play. "All week, we've been saying how much respect we have for this program. They're a great program, historic program," Petras said of Penn State, which fell to 0-5 for the first time. "This is special. No player on this team had ever beaten Penn State, and they're a good football team. It was hard all game and a great team win." - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  Spencer Petras completed 18 of 28 passes for 186 yards and ran for a touchdown to lead Iowa over Penn State 41-21 on Saturday at Beaver Stadium. Mekhi Sargent and Tyler Goodson combined for 179 rushing yards and three touchdown for the Hawkeyes (3-2, 3-2 Big Ten), who won their third straight and snapped a six-game losing streak to Penn State (0-5, 0-5). Iowa led 31-7 midway through the third quarter before Sean Clifford replaced Will Levis at quarterback for Penn State. Clifford completed a pair of touchdown passes for 96 yards in a 3:54 span that cut Iowa's lead to 10 with just over a quarter left.

Levis went 13 of 16 for 106 yards, added 34 rushing yards and fumbled twice. Clifford was 13 of 22 with 174 yards and two interceptions for the Nittany Lions, who fell to 0-5 for the first time in their 134-year history. A handful of chunk plays on Iowa's opening drive set up a 40-yard field goal from Keith Duncan that opened the scoring. Penn State took its first lead since the final minutes of its season opener when Keyvone Lee scored from 6 yards out on his team's next possession. The first-half highlights ended there for Penn State who turned the ball over on three of its next four possessions before halftime. - AP College/Iowa Football

  Upon further review, Spencer Petras didn't really want to talk Tuesday about his debut as Iowa's starting quarterback. The sophomore spoke of the "need to be more consistent." "I did some good things," Petras said of his performance in the Hawkeyes' 24-20 loss at Purdue on Saturday. "I did some things that I wish I could do better, wish I could go back and change." And then Petras was on to Northwestern, saying his attention has shifted to Iowa's opponent in its home opener at 2:30 p.m. Saturday (ESPN). Petras had a bumpy beginning against Purdue, admitting later to having some nerves to work through. He completed only one of his first six pass attempts. But when he got into a rhythm in the second quarter, Iowa put up 17 points, including a 1-yard touchdown run by Petras for the team's first points of the season. Petras completed 13 of 15 passes in that stretch. He finished 22-for-39 for 265 yards, the most by a Hawkeye quarterback in his first start since Jon Beutjer racked up 380 yards in 2000. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  Spencer Petras is QB1 for the Iowa Hawkeyes now, and, at least in his initial meeting with the media Tuesday, he's carrying himself accordingly. Petras was firm in his belief in the Iowa offense and in his ability to make plays, not excuses. He spoke with authority, knowing that there is no room for the timid under center in a college football game. But, mostly, Petras reiterated what is obvious for any first-year starter at quarterback: Nothing will be known about whether he is up to the challenge until Oct. 24, when the Hawkeyes open a delayed, abbreviated Big Ten Conference season at Purdue. "I'm extremely lucky. I feel really grateful just to be in the same room as a lot of these guys. It's an honor to go out and play with them," Petras said of a Hawkeye offense that is skilled and experienced at every position except the one that matters most.

"It's my job to make sure this doesn't go to waste. We have a great team and a lot of talented guys. It's up to all of us. But it's up to me to execute this offense well." Petras has the size (6-foot-5, 231 pounds), the high school accolades (50 touchdown passes against only two interceptions as a senior at Marin Catholic in northern California), and the trust of Iowa's coaching staff after he beat out the older Peyton Mansell to be Nate Stanley's backup last season. But the redshirt sophomore doesn't have the exposure to meaningful game action after completing 6-of-10 passes in mop-up duty a year ago. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  If you were building an NFL team, your top two positional priorities would be quarterback and defensive end. Unfortunately, those are (in my mind) the two biggest areas of uncertainty for the 2020 Hawkeyes. Spencer Petras is the least-experienced starting QB in the Big Ten West, and there is no replacing A.J. Epenesa's dominance as an edge rusher. If those positions are average or worse, Iowa will have a tough time going .500. But there's a lot of internal hope that Petras, now in his third year on campus, is the real deal. The red-headed California QB who broke Jared Goff's high school records couldn't have asked for a better situation. He'll be surrounded by an experienced offensive line and the best group of receivers of the Kirk Ferentz era. If Petras is an instant hit and Parker's defense can be a top-25 national unit (as it has been in six of the last seven years) … this team can consistently score 30-plus points and rule the Big Ten West for the first time since 2015. - Iowa City Press-Citizen
