Two more Hawkeyes suspended for opener

Kirk Ferentz and the University of Iowa announced Wednesday morning that two more Hawkeyes were suspended for the season opener.

Offensive tackle Alaric Jackson and defensive lineman Cedrick Lattimore will miss the September 1 game against Northern Illinois for "violating team policy and rules," which can include academic performance, attendance, timeliness, behavior, effort and engagement.

"As a coach one of the most important decisions is to hold student-athletes accountable," Ferentz said. "It is painful for the players and the team to impose a suspension, but we have high standards and there is an expectation all players abide by our rules."

Previously, defensive lineman Brady Reiff and offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs were suspended for the opener due to alcohol-related violations.
