Where Are They From?
All Time Series: MN leads 361-44-2
Last Game: 23-7 Iowa win last season.
6-2 (3-1 B1G), with games where they have been terrible and games where they've been dominant. Their most recent game? A curb stomping of Northwestern.

Players to Watch:
I'm interested to see how Hawkeye On My Belly performs.
Keys to the Game:
- Offensive balance. The Gophers won't win without a passing game to keep Iowa honest. The secondary is probably stronger than the run D for Iowa, but we saw what happens when you can't pass against Illinois in the first half.
- No turnovers. We lose the TO battle we lose the game. Without question.
- Start strong. FOR THE LOVE OF FLOYD WILL YOU PLAY FROM THE START PLEASE?
How Afraid Am I?
NO FEAR. ONLY HATE.
Given the weather forecast this video seemed appropriate.
Completely Worthless Prediction:
It won't always be pretty, but it will be a win. #FREEFLOYD!
Minnesota 24 - Iowa 21.
