Big Ten Championship Preview: Iowa vs. Michigan Odds, Betting Lines, & Injury Report

Low-scoring Hawkeyes look to upset fierce Wolverines

The Iowa Hawkeyes and Michigan Wolverines will face off for the Big Ten championship on Saturday in Week 14. The Wolverines are No. 2 in the latest AP Top 25, and the Hawkeyes are No. 18. In Week 13, the Wolverines defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes 30-24, intercepting Buckeyes quarterback Kyle McCord two times. The Hawkeyes are 10-2 and beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers 13-10 in Week 13. Hawkeyes quarterback Deacon Hill completed 11 of 28 passes for 94 yards and an interception. 

Wolverines’ defense looks to shut out Hawkeyes offense

The Michigan defense has been among the best in college football this season. In the Big Ten championship, it’ll face a Hawkeyes offense that has scored 20 points or more twice since the start of October. Iowa has scored 15 or fewer each of the past two weeks. Hawkeyes quarterback Hill had fewer than 100 yards passing in Week 13. 

Hawkeyes’ path to victory likely includes finding ways to score

The Hawkeyes have three passing touchdowns over their past five games. In Week 13, the Hawkeyes had 257 yards of offense — 94 in the passing game and 163 on the ground. The Wolverines have held eight teams to 10 points or fewer this season.
