So far this year, saying that the Iowa Hawkeyes’ offense has been underperforming would be to put it mildly. They do rank last in total offense and also rank close to the bottom in offensive TDs, yards per game as well as yards per play.
However, there is one aspect of their offense that is still a threat. One which has been a threat dating back to as long as you care to remember. That is, their tight ends. Stopping the tight ends has been a priority for Michigan’s defensive game-planning this past few days. Safety R.J. Moten discussed his position group’s prepping on Tuesday evening during his time with the local press.
Michigan Wolverines vs. Iowa Hawkeyes Pick
We are going to stick with Michigan, though probably should not go anywhere near this one. The Wolverines didn’t quite obliterate Maryland in persuasive fashion in their last game, but it was a strong win regardless.
Michigan gained 463 total yards of offense (243 on the ground) with 7.0 yards per play and 22 first downs. The three Maryland TOs did help out also. Meanwhile, Iowa was outgained 361-277 by Rutgers.
They had just 15 first downs in their win and also behooved from three TOs. The Hawkeyes’ defense is their high point this season, but we don’t know whether they are strong enough to clamp down on the Wolverines.
