Former Iowa Hawkeye serves as honorary captain Saturday

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Former University of Iowa offensive lineman Dace Richardson serves as honorary captain as the Hawkeyes host the University of Northern Iowa Panthers at Kinnick Stadium Saturday.

The Illinois native joined the Hawkeye program after a highly-successful prep career, participating in the Army All-American Bowl following his senior season. 

During his Iowa career, the Hawkeyes competed in the Outback Bowl following the 2005 and 2008 seasons before the Orange Bowl win in his final game as a Hawkeye.

Richardson will accompany the Iowa captains to the center of the field for Saturday's pregame coin toss. He will also be with the Hawkeyes in the locker room before and after the game, and on the sidelines during the contest.
