PREGAME — When Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz ruled starting defensive back Riley Moss out for Saturday’s game against Wisconsin, junior Terry Roberts was expected to take his place in Iowa’s lineup.

Iowa also appears to be making a change at right tackle. Junior Jack Plumb looks like he will be starting at right tackle for the Hawkeyes today instead of sophomore Nick DeJong.
