Michigan vs Iowa Big Ten Championship Preview

Iowa is coming off a 28-21 win over Nebraska last weekend. Quarterback Spencer Petras, who had missed several games with an injury, entered the game after halftime and completed 7 of 13 passes for 102 yards, well also engineering the game-winning drive in the final minutes. There what’s the question as to whether or not he would be under center in the Big Ten Championship, but that confusion has been cleared up this week.

“Spencer will start the game,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “It was a gut feeling (Friday). We kind of just went with it, and we’ll continue to do that moving forward. But we’ll start the game with Spencer. I thought he did a good job. He’s done a lot of good things over two years here right now. We haven’t forgotten about that at all.”

The Hawkeyes haven’t lost since they fell on October 30 to Wisconsin, and they’ll be going up against a hungry Michigan squad.

“We’ll keep every option open, all possessions,” Ferentz added. “One thing we wanted to make sure Alex understood when (he was starting) and Spencer was healthy was we didn’t want Alex looking over his shoulder. Same thing for Spencer. Whomever is in, they’ve got to play. And we’ll handle it as we go. We don’t want a guy looking over his shoulder and start that situation. That’s not good for anybody.”

Michigan is coming off the most significant win of head coach Jim Harbaugh’s career after it took down perennial powerhouse Ohio State for the first time in Harbaugh’s tenure last week, winning 42-27. The Wolverines won the battle at the line of scrimmage, rushing for 297 yards while holding Ohio State to just 64 yards on the ground.

The Wolverines played smothering ‘D’ all game, with the nation’s top pass rusher, Aidan Hutchinson, netting three sacks in the victory. Hutchinson and David Ojabo (11.0 sacks on the season) make up the most formidable pass rushing duo in the conference, and they’ll be tasked with stopping an Iowa offense that is averaging 31.8 points and 171 rushing yards per game.

“This is a sound, tough, fundamentally good football team in every single regard,” Harbaugh said, via The Detroit News. “And that definitely is daunting in itself. And also you add in that you’re watching 12 weeks of this consistency. And understanding that, now you go back previous seasons, and there’s a lot of creativity in there and all things at their disposal. That’s a daunting task in itself, to understand you’re going up against a team that knows what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, the execution is tremendous down after down. You’re so focused on stopping that that everything else is still a possibility. I’d say it’s a daunting challenge.”

Michigan leads the all-time series, 42-15-4. The last time these two teams squared off, it was a very low scoring affair dominated by defense, with Michigan winning 10-3 back in 2019. Defense could very well be the story here, as well.
