Why Nebraska Will Win

The team keeps on pushing.

It might have had problems holding up against Michigan, but it gave Minnesota a rough game and had Wisconsin in big trouble last week. All were losses – the Huskers have lost five straight – but the want-to is still there thanks to an improving defense.

They allowed fewer than 370 yards in three of the last four games, and now they get an Iowa offense that desperately needs help from the defense to help with field position and potentially come up with a few scores.

For all the issues with the Huskers, the haven’t turned the ball over in either of the last two games and just once in the last three, but …

Why Iowa Will Win

Nebraska’s offense has stalled.

It was great this year against mediocre defenses, but Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin – all of them stuffed the Huskers allowing fewer than 270 yards in each of the four.

The running game that struggled all year has completely stalled, the passing attack can’t get to 200 yards, and Iowa’s defense isn’t the one to get healthy against.

The Hawkeyes have won four straight, they’ve taken the ball away 13 times in the last six games, and …

What’s Going To Happen

Win and get in.

Iowa has had a rough year, the offense has been mocked and ridiculed, and it got ugly with a 3-4 start. However, beat Nebraska for the seventh straight time sine 2014 and go play in the Big Ten Championship for the second straight year.

Nebraska will be plucky early, and the defense will keep the Hawkeyes from going on any big marches, but the O will run into a brick wall.

The Iowa defense will be suffocating against the run, a few field goals will be enough to set the early tone, and then it’ll be on to the prep work for the Michigan-Ohio State winner.

Why Iowa Will Win

And THAT’S the Iowa we all know and love.

So what that it only came up with 146 yards of total offense against Wisconsin? The D came up with three takeaways, the special teams cranked up a few big plays, and the front line was a wall against the run in the 24-10 win.

No, the O isn’t the Greatest Show on Turf like it was against Northwestern and Purdue – it came up with over 300 yards – but as long as it does everything else right all should be fine.

Stop the Minnesota running game, don’t get hit with a lot of flags, win the turnover battle. Iowa can do that against a team that has no problem grinding things down.

Keep the Gophers to under 170 rushing yards and it’ll be a win – they’re 1-3 when they don’t get to the mark and 6-0 when they do.

Michigan and Illinois are the only two teams that got past 130 against the Hawkeye D, but …

Bowl Projections

Why Minnesota Will Win

Back to doing just about everything right – at least outside of having a high end passing game – welcome to Minnesota.

The Gophers have come up with one touchdown pass in the last six games, but they’ve turned it over just twice in the last four games, penalties aren’t an issue, and the team continues to own third downs.

It’s No. 1 in the nation in third down O, No. 2 in third down D, and that’s why the team is second in the country behind Air Force in time of possession.

Basically, Minnesota should be able to out-Iowa, Iowa. As long as there aren’t a slew of turnovers, and as long as the field isn’t tilted the wrong way, the home team should be able to handle it.

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

So just how much does the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale Trophy mean in the Big Ten chase?

Considering Illinois has to play Michigan this week – and hoping for an Illini loss – Iowa will take the Big Ten West if it wins this and closes with a victory over Nebraska.

Minnesota has to win this week, beat Wisconsin next week, and it needs Illinois and Purdue to both lose. That might be tough depending on whether or not QB Tanner Morgan is healthy and ready to go, but …

For now, just getting the bronzed pig back after losing the rivalry seven straight times will be enough.

Iowa vs Purdue Game Preview

Why Iowa Will Win

Well look at Air Iowa and it’s fun ‘n’ gun attack rolling up close to 400 yards and 33 points on Northwestern.

As was pointed out before last week’s game, yes, the Iowa offense is awful, but in the first seven games it went up against five of the best defenses in college football, one of the top three defenses in the FCS, and played Nevada in crazy rainstorm.

Northwestern’s defense is the cure for all offenses, and Purdue’s defense isn’t awful, but the Iowa O won’t be stopped cold and the D should be able to be the Iowa D – don’t expect much from the Purdue ground game.

This should be Iowa’s speed all the way around, but …

Breaking down the CFP Top 25 rankings

Why Purdue Will Win

Get that passing game going early and see what happens.

Yes, Iowa is fifth in the nation in total defense, and yes, you have to budget in a few turnovers, but it’s possible to throw on this bunch.

Ohio State didn’t have too many problems, and Rutgers was able to come up with enough through the air to make the game somewhat interesting. It’s mostly about completion percentage – just keep everything moving.

QB Aidan O’Connell had a rough run pianist Wisconsin two weeks ago, but he’s going to throw it at least 40 times, and he’s going to crank up close to 300 yards – that’s what the Purdue offense does.

As long as he gets time to keep hitting the midrange passes, the offense can work against this brick wall of a D.

And yes, the Iowa offense might be okay, but it’s still not great. Get up fast and that might be it.

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

The Purdue defense isn’t as good as most of the versions Iowa has seen so far, but it’s great at generating third down stops, the offense is terrific at controlling the clock, and that might be enough to pull this off at home.

Having two weeks off to rest up and get ready won’t hurt, either.

Northwestern vs Iowa Game Preview

Why Iowa Will Win

The Hawkeye defense continues to be fantastic, and in this, that should be enough.

The offensive side was mostly to blame for the 54-10 loss to Ohio State with six turnovers putting the D in horrible situations. Even so, holding the Buckeye running game to just 66 yards and keeping the monster attack to 360 yards is a real positive.

Even after going to Columbus the defense is sixth in the nation overall, eighth in scoring defense, and now it gets a Northwestern offense that can’t turn the ball over fast enough and isn’t going to get the running game going against the brick wall of a defensive front.

Of course …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 8

Why Northwestern Will Win

Iowa’s offense continues to be stunningly miserable.

Playing Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio State would be a problem for anyone, but Iowa really couldn’t do much of anything to get moving. The offense has only pushed past the 300-yard mark once – 337 yards in the rain-soaked win over Nevada – and the Northwestern defense could use the break.

For all of the problems, the Wildcat offensive front has been solid in pass protection, the pass defense is fine, and as long as there aren’t a slew of mistakes this will be close because it’s Iowa.

This O really doesn’t work. However …

– Game Previews, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Northwestern can’t win this without a slew of takeaways, and that’s almost certainly not going to happen.

The Wildcats forced five takeaways against Penn State, but that was played in a monsoon – no one could hold on to the ball. Outside of that, the defense hasn’t come up with any takeaways since mid-September.

It’s Iowa. It’s going to be ugly, but the running game will be okay, the defense will be great, and it’ll get out with a win to end the rough run.
