The Iowa football team named Jake Rudock its starting quarterback on Friday via a tweet from @TheIowaHawkeyes.

The announcement didn't come as a surprise, as Rudock took all the first-team snaps in Iowa's most recent public scrimmage. The sophomore spent last season as the team's No. 2 quarterback, but has not taken a college snap.
