By Bob Hunt
Daily Sports Editor
For two teams considered to be
in the upper echelon of the Big Ten
going into the season, neither Michi-
gan nor Iowa have been impres-
sive in their first three games. The
Wolverines lost to an average Notre
Dame team and came within a made
field goal of going to overtime at
home against San Diego State last
Saturday. The Hawkeyes squeaked
by Iowa State before getting man-
handled at Arizona State last week,
44-7. So a poor start to the confer-
ence schedule could take either
team to an unexpectedly mediocre
season.
MICHIGAN PASSING OFFENSE VS.
IOWA PASSING DEFENSE: Arizona State
quarterback Andrew Walter terror-
ized the Iowa secondary last week,
completing 31-of-43 passes for 428
yards and five touchdowns. Walter
threw short and long, and had tons
of time to do it. The Michigan pass-
ing attack has looked sluggish while
bringing along true freshman quar-
terback Chad Henne. The Hawkeyes
won't give up another 428 yards on
Saturday, but the Wolverines receiv-
ing corps will give them trouble.

defensive end Matt Roth, has been
spectacular thus far. The Hawk-
eyes lead the conference in rushing
defense, giving up just 43 yards per
game. The Michigan ground game
did receive hope last week, when
true freshman Mike Hart busted
out for a 121-yard performance. But
this will be the toughest rushing
defense the Wolverines have seen
this season.
EDGE: IOWA

getits r
tacular. as Iowa, Michigan's rush-
ing defense has been solid, ranking
third in the Big Ten. Iowa's running
game has been decimated by inju-
ries, as original starter Albert Young
tore his ACL against Iowa State
and is out for the season. Jermelle
Lewis hasn't done much to impress
as Young's replacement, so look
for junior Marques Simmons to get
an extended look. To make things
worse, Iowa will also have to use its
third different offensive line combi-
nation in four weeks.

IOWA PASSING OFFENSE VS. MICHIGAN
PASSING DEFENSE: The Wolverines
have used the interception as their
biggest way of gaining momentum
this season. Michigan currently
leads the nation in interceptions
with nine, and cornerback Markus
Curry is tied for second in the coun-
try with one per contest. And, as bad
as Iowa was defending the pass last
weekend, it was even worsercom-
pleting the pass against Arizona
State. Quarterback Drew Tate threw
for just 44 yards, while completing
8-of-19 passes. For the season, the
Hawkeyes rank 92nd in the nation in
passing offense.
EDGE: MICHIGAN

INTANGIBLES: Neither squad is suf-
fering from a lack of motivation.
Michigan certainly doesn't want
to lose to the same team at home
for the second consecutive time,
as much as Iowa would love to see
that happen. Both teams are also in
need of a strong start to the confer-
ence season after below-standard
nonconference performances. Iowa
coach Kirk Ferentz is one of the best
up-and-coming coaches around, and
won't stand to have his team unpre-
pared for the second straight week.
But Michigan won't allow itself to
be embarrassed at home once again.
EDGE: PUSH

SPECIAL TEAMS: Right now, Ohio
State could run laps around both
of these teams in terms of the
kicking game. Michigan's Garrett
Rivas and Iowa's Kyle Schlicher
have each missed two extra points
and haven't looked sparkling while
kicking field goals. Rivas has hit
the ball well at times, but for the
most part has been inconsistent.
But the sophomore has shown
much better range than Schlicher,
whose season long is 39 yards. In
terms of the punting game, Mich-
igan's Adam Finley and Iowa's
David Bradley have been solid but
unspectacular. Iowa ranks second
in the nation in punt returns, but
Michigan's kickoff coverage unit
has arguably been the Wolverines'
biggest bright spot so far.

EDGE: MICHIGAN

evenge
EDGE: PUSH

PICK: Look for both teams to
play their best games of the year
because their seasons depend on
it. Regardless, it's hard to beat any
major program three years in a row.
Michigan's young offensive nucleus
should improve and come up big in
its first must-win situation at the col-
legiate level.
