INCOLN, Neb. (AP) — This incredible football season unfolding for third-ranked Iowa has left Jordan Canzeri in a reflective mood.
The running back has missed so much playing time because of injuries over his time in Iowa City that while everyone whose wardrobe includes black and old gold was celebrating the best regular season in 93 years, he was simply grateful to be part of it all.
Canzeri hasn't escaped injury problems in his senior season, yet he's played a huge role in Iowa (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten, No. 4 CFP) getting this far. He had long touchdown runs on back-to-back plays in Friday's 28-20 win over Nebraska and finished with 140 yards on 17 carries. He's the team's season rushing leader at 96.4 yards a game, and he's run for 12 touchdowns.
