The Iowa Hawkeyes and Michigan Wolverines meet up this week for the Big Ten Championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET and the game will air on FOX. The Hawkeye defense will try to stifle a powerful Wolverines rushing attack and block them from their first-ever CFP berth.
Michigan (11-1, 8-1 B1G) is coming off the program’s biggest win in the last 10 years, topping Ohio State and earning a spot in their first-ever Big Ten title game. The potent ground game of Hassan Haskins and Blake Corum will need to have a big game against a good Iowa defense. But the Wolverines' defensive front of Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo will make life tough for the Hawkeyes underwhelming offense.
Iowa (10-2, 7-2 B1G) started the season strong but faded down the stretch after two straight losses. Even in their season finale win over Nebraska, the Cornhuskers outplayed them but a few critical mistake bounced Iowa’s way and helped them earn a spot in this game.
