Iowa Depth Chart - Penn State

The new Iowa depth chart was released on Monday. There were changes from a week ago, but nothing that was unexpected.

IOWA CITY, Ia - On Monday, Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz released his two-deep for this Saturday's game against Penn State at Kinnick Stadium:

PK ........ 96 Meyer, 8 Mossbrucker

Following a 45-0 beat down of Ball State on last Saturday, one wouldn't expect a lot of movement on the Iowa depth chart. There's isn't.

As expected, Michael Meyer is listed as the No. 1 place kicker. The true freshman from Dubuque passed sophomore Trent Mossbrucker last week and took all of the attempts versus Ball State. Senior Daniel Murray, last year's starter, isn't listed again this week. He hasn't dressed for a game this season after suffering a hip injury.

Also no surprise that Marcus Coker has moved into the back-up running back spot behind starter Adam Robinson. I thought there was a chance we'd see Brad Rogers listed there as he replaced A-Rob on Saturday. Rogers remained listed as the No. 2 FB even though Ferentz said after Ball State that he expected the redshirt freshman would work mostly at RB the rest of the way. Ultimately, I think Morse handles all the fullback work as he's been doing and Coker and Rogers will relieve Robinson.

Tom Donatell moves into the No. 2 strong safety position behind Tyler Sash. Nick Nielsen held that spot last week.

Jordan Bernstine is listed as the sole No. 2 cornerback behind Micah Hyde. William Lowe shared that spot with Bernstein a week ago.
