Two More Hawkeye Linemen Suspended for Opener

Two more Iowa football players won’t be suiting up for the team’s opening game against Northern Illinois in three weeks. Hawkeyes head coach Kirk Ferentz has announced Alaric Jackson and Cedrick Lattimore will serve one-game suspensions. Ferentz said the suspensions do not stem from a legal matter. Violation of team rules can include behavior, effort, academic performance, and attendance. Ferentz said the issues began in late spring and the players were given guidelines to meet over the past 10 weeks. Jackson is an offensive tackle for the team and Lattimore is a defensive lineman. Their suspensions now make four Hawkeyes that won’t be on the field against the Huskies. Previously, defensive lineman Brady Reiff and offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs were given one-game suspensions for alcohol-related violations.
