Iowa vs Wisconsin game preview
Why Iowa will win
As you read this, Wisconsin has probably just turned the buck.
It’s crazy how a program that was built on being so good at doing everything right has become so consistently horrible when it comes to giveaways.
It’s not that Badger’s old teams were perfect, but when there were turnovers they usually came in a total meltdown – most often against Northwestern.
It’s become a constant stream of bad, dropping him 17 times this year in seven games, 28 times in the last 12 games, and going back to mid-2019, the schedule has returned him 45 times in 22 games for one. average of just over two giveaways per game.
Turnovers can usually be overcome if they represent the cost of doing business – if you have a high power offense scoring in clusters, that’s okay. But the Wisconsin offense has all but given up on the idea of a successful down throw.
By the way, the Iowa defense is pretty good to take away with 16 in six games before the loss to Purdue, and Penn State – with 107 yards – is the only team to rush for more than 100 yards on this group. .

Why Wisconsin will win
As you’re reading this, the Iowa offensive line has likely just dropped another tackle for a loss.
For all the love and affection given to the Hawkeye line – especially future NFL C star Tyler Linberbaum – it’s not so good at blocking.
When it comes to games behind the line, the defensive lines of Purdue, Penn State and Maryland wore the five forward Hawkeye as their hat.
Iowa’s worst offense was exposed by Purdue – the points quickly dried up with no takeout – and it’s not like things are about to get much better in Madison.
Wisconsin is No. 1 in the nation against the run – and that’s with one victory over Army and another over an offense from Illinois which has thrown two days of 300-yard running in two of its last three games.
The Badgers are No. 2 in total defense behind Georgia, it’s tenth in passing yards allowed, and they take just eight tackles for a loss and go from there.

what’s going to happen
But the takeaways …
Iowa is rested, he should be a lot cooler than he looked and played against Purdue, and he’s set to offer at least three takeaways against a Badger offense that will betray them as Kit’s. Fun sized kats.
It’s not like the Iowa O will produce much – setting the total yards over / under around 240 – but it will capitalize on Badger’s mistakes, as will Penn State, Michigan and Notre Dame. .
