Gamewatch #5: Iowa Hawkeyes @ Michigan Wolverines

We head into the Big House for an epic battle of two of the top teams. This one has been circled on our calendar as we have had some recent history with the Wolverines. Whether is was the classic #1 vs. #2 game in the mid-80s or Jake Rudock jumping ship to join them after starting 2 years for the Hawkeyes or saga of Oliver Martin who stunned Hawkeye fans to leave for Michigan only to transfer back this season to his rightful home in black & gold.

Regardless, this is an anticipated matchup that we’re excited for.
