Go Blue: Michigan vs. Iowa

Today the Wolverines travel to Iowa City IA to meet the Hawkeyes under another perfect fall day.

This will be the 57th meeting between Michigan and Iowa. The Wolverines hold a 40-12-4 lead in the all-time series and have a 16-5-1 mark at Iowa, including a 15-5-1 record at Kinnick Stadium. Michigan has won six of the last 10 games in the series, despite dropping the last two games. 

In a sport where momentum means so much, Michigan has it coming from a win over Purdue and a respectable 7-1 record this year. Iowa on the other had is coming off a loss falling to a not so impressive Minnesota last week.

Michigan is favored by 4 and are rated 13th trying to hang in with the Spartans and Nebraska for the Legends division lead.

This game is not and should not be treated as an automatic win for any Wolverine fan.  Michigan has proven they can win on the road but a win away from home is always more difficult. Denard will have to be on his game today but MI does have enough weapons to put on a formidable show today in IA today.

Iowa on the other hands need so shake off last weeks  loss and pull themselves up and get some points on the board. The Hawkeyes have a few weapons of their own including WR Marvin McNut that MI should be looking out for. Score early and often will be the path for them to an upset win over the Wolverines. Will they we able to do it against the formidable Wolverine defense? Not likely.

Good luck boys.
