Current Hawkeye coach Lisa Bluder.

Iowa State Football

It has been a long time since Iowa State has had the same quarterback start and finish a season. Brock Purdy hopes to change that. Purdy was inserted into the lineup as a true freshman in the second series of the fifth game at Oklahoma State and helped lead the Cyclones to an 8-5 finish.

 

Purdy says as he prepares for his sophomore season he will take on a bigger leadership role.
