One of the most important stats is the battle of 3rd down conversions. The team that converts 3rd downs better usually wins the game. Tonight: Iowa 8-18 for 44.4% vs. Michigan 3-11 for 27.3%
Even with all those TOs, if we hold up better on 3rd down defensively (esp. when it's 3rd and 24 and we give up a deep post in a defense playing a center fielder, which IMO was our worst play of the game in any phase), we probably win.
Of course, the converse is probably true: even with being that poor on 3rd downs, if we don't turn it over 5 times, we probably win.
Most importantly, if we don't turn it over and we win 3rd down, we win easily. We clearly owned the line of scrimmage tonight. I think every game left on the schedule is a possible win.
