Indiana (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten) at Iowa (4-1, 1-0)

Line: Iowa by 3 ½

Series Record: Iowa leads 42-28-4

WHAT’S AT STAKE

A win would give Iowa three straight heading into its first trip to Maryland for a Big Ten game. Indiana doesn’t want to fall to 0-2 in a very competitive East division race.

KEY MATCHUP

Iowa’s defensive line and linebackers vs. Indiana RB Tevin Coleman. The Hawkeyes are among the nation’s best team at stopping the run. Coleman is among the nation’s best running backs. Whoever wins that battle will likely win the game.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Indiana: QB Nate Sudfield. If he can keep Iowa honest through the air, Coleman might have the space he needs to gash Iowa’s front seven. But Sudfield has thrown more than one TD pass just just once in five games.

Iowa: RB Mark Weisman: He has yet to crack 100 yards in a game this season. But it’s clear that Iowa wants to get Weisman going like he has in the past, so expect the Hawkeyes to use him early and often in an attempt to establish the running game.
