Michigan Wolverines vs Iowa Hawkeyes
Michigan Wolverines -11.0

The fourth-ranked Michigan Wolverines football team will travel to Kinnick Stadium to face off against the Iowa Hawkeyes, who the Wolverines beat in the Big Ten championship game last season. In their previous game, Michigan knocked off the Maryland Terrapins with a 32-27 final score, and Iowa had a 27-10 victory over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

The matchup will be a rematch of their last season's conference championship game. It will be the 63rd meeting between the teams, with Michigan leading in their all-time series at 43-15-4. However, it is not a secret that Kinnick Stadium is a tough place to play for the Wolverines. Michigan has not defeated its opponent in the city of Iowa since 2005.

Michigan is an 11-point favorite over Iowa in the upcoming game.

Michigan Wolverines vs Iowa Hawkeyes

Michigan Wolverines 

The Michigan Wolverines come into this game ranked fourth in the country with 1,354 points in AP Top 25. The Wolverines have a 4-0 record with 1,019 passing yards and 937 rushing yards. Michigan had a blowout 51-7 victory over the Colorado State Rams in the season opener, then defeated Hawaii, UConn, and Maryland to move to 4-0 on the year.

So far this season, quarterback J.J. Mccarthy has thrown for 693 passing yards and five touchdowns this season. Blake Corum also has a significant role in the offense with 478 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. Ronnie Bell has 253 receiving yards in total to this point in the season.

On the injury front, Quarterback Cade McNamara will be out indefinitely during the 2022 season after a leg injury. From the offensive line, Karsen Barnhart and Trevor Keegan are still uncertain to play in Saturday's contest. Barnhart missed the previous game due to an ankle injury, while Keegan did not play due to an unspecified injury.

Running Back Donovan Edwards also sat out for the past two games with a leg injury. It is still unknown if he will play for the Wolverines against the Hawkeyes. Linebacker Nikhai Hill-Green suffered a lower-body tissue injury for the previous four games. His presence for the upcoming game is still undetermined.

Iowa Hawkeyes 

The Iowa football team struggled on offense during its first two games. In a win over South Dakota State, they had two safeties and a field goal in a 7-3 win. They then lost to Iowa State 10-7 at home.

Despite the slow start to the season, the Iowa football team's defense has been able to hold its opponents to a total of 23 points in the past four games. The challenge for the team's defense will be to continue to play at a high level against a Michigan offense that is averaging 50.0 points per game.

Iowa has 524 passing yards, 406 rushing yards and 930 total yards this season. The team's key players on offense are Spencer Petras with 524 total passing yards, Kaleb Johnson with 174 rushing yards and Sam LaPorta with 154 receiving yards.

The Hawkeyes had to accept the unfortunate fact that some of their best players will not join them in the game against Michigan. Wide receivers Keagan Johson, Diante Vines and Jackson Ritter will not be available. Johnson left the previous game with a lower-body tissue ailment, and Vines is out until midseason due to a wrist injury. Ritter has to miss the entire 2022 season due to an unspecified injury.
