Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said in his press conference today that the Hawkeyes will be without star cornerback Riley Moss when they take on Wisconsin this weekend.
Moss injured his knee after an interception two weeks again against Penn State. His absence is big news for the Iowa secondary, as Moss sits with 4 interceptions, 2 pick-sixes, 23 tackles and 3 passes defended through six games.
The Hawkeyes will now likely turn to redshirt junior Terry Roberts to operate the corner position across from senior Matt Hankins. Roberts has appeared all of Iowa’s seven games this season and has recorded 1 interception, 3 passes defended and 14 tackles.
Wisconsin is dealing with its own health problems entering Saturday. None of those players are as impactful as Moss, though. His absence is significant for Graham Mertz’s chances through the air on Saturday.
#Iowa will be without CB Riley Moss for the second straight game, coach Kirk Ferentz said. The Hawkeyes visit Wisconsin this week. Moss leads Iowa with four interceptions. Injured in the first half against Penn State on Oct. 9.
