10.22.09 - Hawkeye Links

The Gazette's Marc Morehouse breaks down Saturday's matchup between Iowa and Michigan State in his Big Analysis:
The Hawkeyes haven’t won at Spartan Stadium since 1995. Ferentz is 0-for-4 there, including a 49-3 spanking when the Spartans and Hawkeyes were from different planets in 1999. That said, Iowa has found some sort of Zen-like calm on the road this season. Turnovers have been the deal, with taking three interceptions ut of Wisconsin last week and four take-aways at Penn State. Can a team depend on turnovers like this? Probably not, but it’s worked so far.
Iowa 21, Michigan State 20
Iowa City Press-Citizen's Andy Hamilton says while fans may be talking BCS, Rose Bowl, and beyond, the Hawkeyes are just taking it one game at a time.

ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg has Iowa's continued "quest for perfection" as his #1 thing to watch in the Big Ten this Saturday.

Bob Wojnowski of the Detroit News believes Iowa is the worst 7-0 team in Big Ten history. His reasoning? It's obvious. Oh, and the Hawkeyes "tackle, pick up loose footballs, and hope the other team misses field goals." Journalism at its finest, folks!

The Lansing State Journal chronicles the Iowa-Michigan State series over the years. 15 of the last 21 meetings have been decided by a touchdown or less. This year's game should be another tight one.

HawkeyeNation.com takes a look at where Vegas would set the odds for mock matchups if Iowa were to face Florida, Alabama, and USC. The Hawkeyes would be at least a touchdown underdog against each of those teams according to the Las Vegas Sports Consultants.
