Today’s college football outlook takes a dive into the Iowa Hawkeye defensive line. Iowa defensive lineman Cedric Lattimore says improved depth along the line has made the Hawkeye defense better. After getting on the field as a true freshman in 2016 Lattimore played in all 13 games a year ago.
Lattimore says it helps the defensive line stay fresh, especially in the fourth quarter.
Lattimore says getting on the field early helped him realize what he needed to get better at.
The Hawkeyes open the season on September first against Northern Illinois.
