“The Hawkeyes have won 15 straight games in which they’ve run the ball 40 or more times. Can All-America center Tyler Linderbaum and his teammates control the interior and allow Tyler Goodson to pound the rock and keep Indiana’s big-play passing game off the field?”...

IOWA

Hawkeyes 24, Hoosiers 21

“For the first time in more than a half-century, Indiana is in the preseason AP Top 25. It might be a short stay, though, because this road opener against Iowa is rough. Opponents averaged only 16.0 points per game against the Hawkeyes last year, and no foe managed to exceed 24 points or reach 400 yards of total offense. Dating back to the end of the 2018 regular season, Iowa has held 22 consecutive opponents to 24 points or fewer. Can Hoosiers quarterback Michael Penix Jr. snap that streak in his first game back from the torn ACL that he suffered in November? And/or can the Indiana defense—which brings back most of its leaders except for Jamar Johnson—outperform Iowa's in a low-scoring affair? I'm going with the home team in a tight one, but I fully expect this one to be decided by a back-breaking fourth-quarter turnover. It's just a question of which defense makes it happen.”...

“Indiana presents a unique challenge for Iowa’s defense and while I expect it to be strength on strength, I don’t expect it to be the best outing of the season for the Iowa D. On the flip side, I’m confident in Iowa’s ability to run the ball as the season goes along, but expect it to take some time for the offensive line to really come together. That’s time they don’t have against an experienced and talented IU defense. I see some punches traded back and forth, but ultimately Indiana’s defense causes more mistakes by the Iowa offense. ”...
