Iowa QB Nate Stanley named Manning Award National Player of the Week

One more accolade rolled in for Iowa after the Hawkeyes’ 31-point drubbing of Ohio State last week. Quarterback Nate Stanley was named the Manning Award’s National Player of the Week on Thursday.

Stanley had a huge game against Ohio State, throwing for 5 touchdowns and 226 yards in the upset win in Iowa City. Stanley entered the game with a combined 5 touchdown passes in his previous 4 games, but he and the Hawkeyes’ offense came alive against the Buckeyes.

For his efforts, Stanley was given the national honor handed out each week by the Manning Award, which is given out annually.

In his first year as Iowa’s starting quarterback, the 6-foot-5 sophomore has thrown for 1,929 yards, 22 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions to go with a 58.3 completion percentage through 9 games. Stanley and the Hawkeyes are looking for another huge win this weekend as they travel north to face undefeated No. 8 Wisconsin at Camp Randall in Madison (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC).
