IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa quarterback Nathan Stanley has been listed as the starter for Saturday’s opener against Wyoming.

Stanley, a sophomore, spent the offseason competing with junior Tyler Wiegers for the opening left by C.J. Beathard’s graduation.

Stanley was 5 of 9 passing in 2016 as a true freshman - the first newcomer to play for Iowa at quarterback since Drew Tate in 2003. Nevada transfer James Butler also cracked Monday’s new depth chart. He’ll back up Akrum Wadley, who has added kick returns to his responsibilities.
