A little refresher course on last year's game:
Iowa 30, Michigan 28
Night game. Crowd was stoked.
Iowa had a functional bye the prior week vs. Arkansas State
Iowa outgained Michigan by 48 total yards.
Michigan lost 3 fumbles and had 2 INTs.
Iowa had no fumbles and had 1 INT (for a pick 6).
TOP was 32:45 Iowa, 27:45 Michigan. The 4:30 time advantage was pretty evenly spread out over the game.
Iowa had 72 offensive plays, Michigan had 68.
Denard replaced Tate in the 2nd half and was trying to lead M into game-winning FG territory when he threw an INT. M couldn't run the ball with Denard on that last drive due to time constraints.
So, I'd say M has a chance on Saturday.
