Both of these 1-2 teams have not met expectations and will be desperate for a win.
The Hawkeyes scored five first half touchdowns last week versus Michigan State and cruised to a 49-7 victory. Iowa scored 20 points in 2 losses to start the season, but their great play in all three phases against the Spartans shows they have what it takes to win some ball games this year.

Minnesota also got their 1st win last week, a 41-14 victory over Illinois. They lost by 3 scores in week 1 to Michigan, then by 1 point in an OT thriller against Maryland.
Iowa Minnesota Free Pick
Last week, the Golden Gophers looked more like the P.J. Fleck coached team that fans have come to expect. At the end of the game, Minnesota rushed for 325 yards, getting 224 and 4 TDs from junior running back Mohamed Ibrahim.
This should be a great game for football fans that enjoy old fashioned, hard hitting football. Both Kirk Ferentz and P.J. Fleck will have their teams fired up for this one, but my Iowa Minnesota free pick is backing the Hawkeyes.
