Rudock Likely in Line to Start at QB for Iowa
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz isn't quite ready to announce a starting quarterback.

But it sure sounds as if he has already picked sophomore Jake Rudock.

Rudock took nearly all the snaps with the starters Saturday night during an open scrimmage at Kinnick Stadium. Redshirt freshman C.J. Beathard ran most of the plays with the second unit, and junior college transfer Cody Sokol appears to have fallen back to third on the depth chart.

Ferentz will likely announce a starter for the Aug. 31 opener against Northern Illinois by the end of next week -- and all indications are that Rudock will get the nod.
