Michigan vs. Iowa Game Preview: Watch, Listen, Stream, More

Everything you need to know for Saturday’s showdown in Iowa City.

NCAA Football: Maryland at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan heads to Kinnick for a night game with the Iowa Hawkeyes this week that should be a very stiff test for them despite what the matchup may say on paper.

That is not to say the Wolverines may lose, but a road game in a rowdy atmosphere always has the ingredients to get wacky and this team just has to go out and take care of business.

Wilton Speight is playing the best football of his young career right now and taking that into an environment where everyone is against you is another stepping stone to see how he develops heading into the game at Ohio State. They have to get through the task at hand first, however.

They say defense travels, and it does not look like they should have much trouble this week. Iowa runs a very basic offense, so expect Michigan to feast this week and make another statement with a national crowd tuning into them.

Prediction: Michigan 38, Iowa 14
