New Linebackers Step In at Iowa
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 08:44:35 CDT

A year ago, a veteran corps of linebackers were expected to carry an Iowa defense that had a young but talented defensive line. This year a veteran defensive front will have three new starters behind it.


That's Iowa defensive coordinator Phil Parker who says much of the time in preseason camp will be spent building depth.


Parker says that process will also give them a chance to find players who may help on certain downs.


Iowa opens at home against UNI on August 30th.
