The Iowa Hawkeyes open the Big Ten race at Michigan. The Hawkeyes are 2-1 and will be looking to bounce back from a 44-7 shellacking at Arizona State last week. Iowa’s offense was smothered in the loss but coach Kirk Ferentz is confident that unit and quarterback Drew Tate will bounce back. Ferentz says Tate has been knocked down before and will get back up. He says when you loose and perform poorly, as they all did starting with him, then he says you should be disappointed.Iowa’s defense could not slow down Arizona State’s pass game and Ferentz says Michigan’s standout receiving corps will also provide a challenge. He says you can choose your poison, and the tight end is really good too. Ferentz says the Hawkeyes know what it will have to take a chance. He says he’s more concerned about where his team is going and how they’re performing than he is about Michigan’s talent. He says if they perform well, it should be a good football game.
