2016 Michigan gameday #10: at Iowa

Michigan, coming off a fine showing in a 59-3 home win against Maryland, heads to Iowa City for an 8 pm matchup with the 5-4 (3-3) Hawkeyes.  While Iowa will be playing for bowl eligibility thanks to losses to North Dakota State (FCS), Northwestern, Wisconsin, and Penn State, Michigan continues to control its own destiny on its path to the Big Ten championship game.

The 9-0 Wolverines hold a 41-14-4 mark in the series, though the Hawkeyes won the last contest between the teams in 2013.  A 22-point spread appears to contradict what could be a fairly close game, though Michigan's offense has been much more potent than Iowa's this season.  Hopefully an ever-improving Wilton Speight can QB Michigan to a 10th win with help from Jabrill Peppers and an excellent defense.  Look for Jim Harbaugh's squad to rise to the occasion once again in their next step towards history.
