per John:


The direction of Iowa's journey in the Big Ten West Division race might be decided by the third game of the season.

Iowa's game at Minnesota on Sept. 18, the conference opener for both schools, has been selected by ESPN.com as the Hawkeyes' most important game of the 2020 season.

ESPN.com's Bill Connolly wrote of the game:

"Iowa has beaten Minnesota five times in a row and wrecked the Gophers' unbeaten run last November in Iowa City. Not only must the Hawkeyes head north this time to fend off a revenge attempt, but they must do it on a Friday night in Week 3, right after the rivalry game against Iowa State. The Hawkeyes could still be breaking in a new quarterback and figuring out what they've got at that time. The Big Ten West race could be fascinating to follow, but the loser of this one is going to be playing from behind the rest of the fall."


Go Gophers!!

I am usually irrationally high on Iowa.
I picked them to win the west last year and they were a couple of plays away from beating Wisconsin and being in a 3 way tie that would’ve sent them to Indy...however...this year the more I think about it the more down I am.

their defense isn’t lock down like 2015 or 2009. Their offense was okay last year with a good quarterback they need to replace.
I’ve got Iowa going 7-5 next year losing @ Minnesota, @ Ohio state, @ penn state, @ purdue, and home against Wisconsin
