The Iowa football team cruised to a 20-0 victory over Northwestern today. Here are our five observations from the Hawkeye’s win.
Well, a win is a win, even if it wasn’t the prettiest. The Iowa football team’s defense got their second shutout of the season against a Big Ten opponent, and Iowa’s offense continued to take steps, albeit tiny steps, in their 20-0 victory over Northwestern.
Furthermore, we at least saw two (arguably three) of the four things we should have been looking for in Evanston and a few young guys stepped up big in this Big Ten road game.
With Wisconsin losing today (as expected) to Ohio State, the Iowa football team is in quite a good position to make a run at the Big Ten West title.
But for now, let’s take a look at a few things we saw from the win over Northwestern and what that means going forward.
