Iowa hosts Michigan in the penultimate game of the season for both teams. Each team has looked good at times and beatable at others. Here is what a sampling of Hawkeyes fans are saying about the game and the teams:
If IOWA plays like it has most of the year (minus NIU game) without stupid mistakes they will be in each game. Now, if we make a couple plays that are there to be had, we should win each game. This team has a razor thin margin for Wins vs. Losses against decent teams. That is basically what it comes down to.
A question if Ferentz can put it all together for this team to take another step. Things are setting up well for the Hawkeyes to peak at the right time. Safe to say, a win over Michigan would go a long way toward doing well in Lincoln.
First, Iowa needs to beat Michigan at Kinnick Stadium. This is possible and will give us the big mojo going into the Nebraska game. We can beat the Huskers and finish 8-4 and go to good bowl game.
Iowa led OSU 17-10 @ halftime and was tied 24-24 going into the 4th quarter and neither Nebraska or Michigan are as good as OSU, the Iowa-Wisconsin game was 9-14 going into the 4th quarter , MSU was down to Iowa 10-14 @ halftime, as of now Iowa is 12th in the Nation in scoring defense. Offensively they are averaging 397.9 ypg, this is not the 2012 season all over again.
