The BIG 10 highlights Friday Night Lights with The Hawkeyes of Iowa traveling to TCF Bank Stadium to take on the Golden Gophers for the Floyd of Rosedale trophy.
The Iowa Hawkeyes easily could be 3-0 right now, but each of the first two games it seemed they found ways to lose so their only win of the season came in their last game against the Michigan State Spartans. On the season Iowa is averaging 29.7 points per game and in the last game they had their biggest output putting up 49 points. Quarterback Spencer Petras has had some growing pains so far this year he has thrown for two touchdowns but three interceptions. Running back Tyler Goodson has been the focal point for the offense and in the last game he rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns. On defense the Hawkeyes haven’t looked pretty good but this is quite the test for them.
Minnesota who also lost their first two games of the season before dominating Illinois in the last game. The offense still has looked good, but where they have had issues is with their defense. Each of the first two games of the season, Minnesota gave up 45 points, but their defense only gave up 14 points in the last game. On offense Tanner Morgan and Rashod Batemon get all the attention, but the real star of the offense this season has been running back Mo Ibraham who is one of the best backs in the big ten. In the last game against Illinois he rushed for 2224 yards and four touchdowns.
