Iowa versus Indiana (pregame storylines)
The offseason in college football is usually lengthy. Hope and excitement grow from bowl season in December and January through the first weekend in September.
This offseason seemed more lengthy after a truncated season with few fans. We did, however, make it. Iowa football is back, and the Kinnick is crowded. This week, Mike Hlas wrote about the revival of that atmosphere.
“Last year, football was certainly played at Kinnick, but there was no marching band or spirit squad. There was no audible wall of sound to be felt.
“On Saturday, the commotion will return. For the first time since November 2019, a genuine football experience will be conducted on Duke Slater Field at Nile Kinnick Stadium. “
Hawkeye supporters, the Hawkeyes have been missing you.
What will that real-life football experience entail? Leah Vann of the Gazette took a closer look.
“On Saturday, the defensive matchup between No. 17 Indiana and No. 18 Iowa will be like a side-by-side photo in a gossip magazine, with the question: who wore it best?
“At first sight, they seem to have a lot in common: both defend with a 4-2-5 formation (four defensive linemen, two linebackers, and five defensive backs). Indiana, on the other hand, blitzes more often than Iowa. If it works, it causes the opposition offensive to make dubious and problematic decisions. “
The Hawkeyes take on the Big Ten’s most dangerous turnover defense, as well as a dazzling offense.
