Iowa’s Epenesa named A.P. First Team All-American

IOWA CITY (KWWL) — Iowa defensive end A.J. Epenesa was named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press on Tuesday. It’s the fourth preseason first team All-American honor for the Hawkeye junior.

Last season Epenesa led the Big Ten in sacks (10.5), ranked second in forced fumbles (4), and fourth in tackls for loss (16.5). This despite playing only about half of Iowa’s defensive snaps his sophomore season.

Iowa hosts Miami (OH) on August 31 to open the 2019 season.
