Just one day after becoming the first Iowa player in school history to win the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week, Hawkeye quarterback Nate Stanley’s name came up in weekly recognition once again.

Stanley earned Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors and saw his name on the Davey O’Brien “Great 8” List.

In No. 19. Iowa’s 42-16 win over Indiana on Oct. 13, Stanley completed 21 of his 33 passes for 320 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Stanley’s 6 touchdowns tied for second-most in a single game in school history, tying Chuck Long. Chuck Hartlieb holds the record with 7 against Northwestern in 1987.

In the last two games, Stanley has thrown 10 touchdowns, and the Hawkeye offense has put up 90 points.

 Stanley shares his conference recognition with Northwestern wide receiver Flynn Nagel, who caught 12 passes for 220 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Wildcat’s victory over Nebraska. 

Joe Burrow (LSU), Jarrett Guarantano (Tennessee), Tyler Huntley (Utah), Jordan Love (Utah State), James Morgan (FIU), Andre Nunez (Louisiana), and Brock Purdy (Iowa State) joined Stanley on the “Great 8” list. 

Iowa hosts Maryland on Oct. 20. The game kicks off at 11 a.m.
