MI beats Iowa, 10-3, in old-fashioned slugfest

MI beats Iowa, 10-3, in old-fashioned slugfest

The #19 Michigan Wolverines held off the 14th ranked Hawkeyes 10-3 on Saturday afternoon in a game that saw five turnovers.

Iowa allowed eight sacks, had eight penalties and four total turnovers in the game. The Hawkeyes suffered their first lost of the season. MI had just 271 total yards, and struggled in the passing game.

After the game, coach Kirk Ferentz met with the media to discuss why his squad came up short in the important Big Ten game. If Iowa can go into the Big House and take this one from MI, they simply must be considered among the favorites in the Big Ten West.

The Taliban said they were in Islamabad to discuss the condition of roughly 1.5 million Afghan refugees living in the city. Both Afghanistan's defence ministry and the president's office declined to comment on the developments, the report said.

The Hawkeyes' All-American quarterback, Nate Stanley, came in with 136 consecutive throws over two years without an interception, but MI picked off two aerials during the first half. Ronnie Bell caught six passes for a career-high 83 yards and Nico Collins finished with 59 yards and a touchdown as the Wolverines surpassed the 50-point plateau for the sixth time under Harbaugh. They scored the only touchdown of the game on their next possession when Charbonnet rushed in from 2 yards to cap a 70-yard drive.

Keith Duncan's 22-yard field goal in the second quarter was the only score for the Hawkeyes. The home-field advantage MI has is comparable (or even better) than that of the Iowa football team at Kinnick Stadium.

"I think we all just played our asses off on the defense", defensive end Aidan Hutchinson said, asked about similarities between Iowa and Wisconsin.
