The Iowa Hawkeyes have dropped out of the USAToday/ESPN coaches poll after a 30-17 loss at Michigan. The Hawkeyes had five turnovers and four led to Michigan touchdowns. The Iowa run game continues to struggle. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says they can put a running game together, they just have to keep working on it. He says they’re extremely young, but acted more like a Big Ten team against Michigan. Drew Tate had two interceptions and a costly fumble but he had a pair of touchdown passes and finished with 270 yards of passing. He says they have some tough guys on their team, and there’s none tougher than Tate. Ferentz says if they can weather the early storm, they’ll be okay.Defensive end Matt Roth had seven tackles and a sack as the Iowa defense battled a Michigan offense which consistently had good field position. He says even when things weren’t going so well, the guys still love to be on the field and play hard.
