Hawk Talk

This is the second part of a look at the Iowa Hawkeyes’ football schedule.
Last week, I looked at the first six games and thought Iowa would be favored in five (Northern Illinois, Iowa State, UNI, Central Michigan and Minnesota). I believe Iowa won’t be favored at Michigan State.
This week, I’ll look at the rest of the schedule which includes home games against Penn State, Purdue and Nebraska with road trips to Northwestern, Indiana and Michigan.
