Hello!  What’s up err’body?  I hope you enjoyed reading the Table Seven Top 6 this morning.  This here is our Feature Game Analysis.  Our NCAA College Football Week 6 game of the week is (14)IOWA at (19)MICHIGAN.

(14)IOWA @ (19)MICHIGAN- Saturday, October 5th at 12:00, the Hawkeyes and the Wolverines will get after it, and Michigan is the favorite at home by 3 points.  Iowa would like to extend their winning streak to five games and remain undefeated this season.  They would also like to break into the top 10 Nationally.  That’s what they would like to do, but wait a minute.  Where the heck did Iowa crawl out of?  Out of nowhere apparently, but they are ranked 14th, and they’re undefeated (4-0) so we must give some credit where it’s due.

Iowa’s best win this season was that 18-17 game against Iowa State.  Iowa St. was ranked at the time.  Last week Michigan beat Rutgers 52-0, but Iowa also played Rutgers in their second week and won 30-0.  Hawkeye QB Nate Stanley is very consistent, and he doesn’t turn the ball over.  He has thrown for 965 yards and 8 touchdowns thus far.  WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette has big play potential as does Tyrone Tracy Jr., but they’ll have to work extra hard this weekend against a Michigan defense that’s ranked 3rd against the pass.

In the backfield, Iowa looks to Mekhi Sargent to carry the load, which he has proven himself capable, but 5′ 11″ 223 pound senior Toren Young is a battering ram averaging over 7 yards per carry.

Michigan is 3-1, but they really need to shake off that 35-14 loss to Wisconsin.  It’s unfortunate that that game came in the first week of the season, but what can we do.  Wisconsin is still undefeated, and so far, that was Michigan’s only real test.  Since then, well, they beat Rutgers and Middle Tennessee State convincingly, and struggled in an overtime win against Army.  A win is a win though I guess.

We do know Michigan’s QB Shea Patterson has been picked off twice, and he’s only completing 59% of his passes.  He should get some help from WR Nico Collins.  Collins is a big boy who’s averaging 21 yard per catch.  He also has 2 touchdowns this season.

Iowa and Michigan to me, is one of those classic Big 10 games.  Today it’s Big 10 East versus Big 10 West, but still the same.  Michigan, in my opinion, is inconsistent and unproven, but they’ve shown flashes of some very good things against some not so good teams.  Playing at home must give them some advantage.  Iowa, although they haven’t played some of the better teams in the conference yet, seem to be very consistent and mistake free.  They also have a very good defense.  It’s ranked 10th against the run and 5th overall.  If Michigan can’t throw the ball against Iowa they will not win this game.  Straight up!  I think Iowa will play some really good defense this week, and offensively, they have enough to keep Michigan off balance.  I really want to say Michigan is going to win this, but I don’t know.

Feature Game Winner Versus The Spread

Michigan -3

There it is.  We think playing at home will give Michigan the edge in this game versus Iowa.  We also think Michigan will cover the 3 point spread and bring us to 3-1-1 on the season.  We hope you enjoy this game and all the others this weekend.  Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to log on to https://noozbuffet.com Sunday, October 6th, for the Feature Game Follow Up!
