Iowa released the depth chart for this week's game against Iowa State and, unsurprisingly, it contains very few changes from the depth chart we saw last week. It's easy to do that when a) you avoid injuries (which Iowa did in Week One) and b) your starters look good (and they did). Based on Saturday's evidence, there isn't a need to shake things up much right now.
QB: C.J. Beathard, Tyler Wiegers
RB: LeShun Daniels, Jr., Jordan Canzeri
FB: Macon Plewa, Adam Cox
WR: Tevaun Smith, Jerminic Smith
WR: Matthew VandeBerg, Riley McCarron

TE: Henry Krieger-Coble, George Kittle
LT: Boone Myers, Cole Croston
LG: Sean Welsh, Steve Ferentz
C: Austin Blythe, Eric Simmons
RG: Jordan Walsh, James Daniels
RT: Ike Boettger, Keegan Render
The starters remain the same. The only change is some re-shuffling on the second line of the depth chart along the interior OL. Daniels moves from backing up Welsh at LG to backing up Walsh at RG. Ferentz replaces Daniels as the listed back-up at LG, while Simmons remains the main back-up at C.

Last week's depth chart only listed the punter and kicker, but this week's depth chart confirms the remainder of the special teams duties that we saw on the field on Saturday. King and McCarron are the primary returners for both punts and kickoffs. Kidd is the holder for field goals/extra points in addition to being the starting punter (and having the punter serve as the holder on place kicks has been a common arrangement for Iowa in the past). And were you wondering who the long-snapper was? Wonder no more -- it's Tyler Kluver.
