There is a reason that Michigan State is rated one of the best defenses in the country... they are really good!
The Spartans held the Hawkeyes to 23 yards on the ground, 13 first downs and Iowa had the ball for only 22:47 minutes. Also, the Hawks didn’t get a first down until about five minutes left in the first half.
Here we go again.
Last year at this time the Hawks were 4-2, 2-0 in the Big Ten and beat Michigan State, 19-16 in overtime.
This year Iowa is 4-2, 1-1 in the Big Ten and lost to the Spartans, 26-14.
