Vegas computer predicts winner in highly anticipated Minnesota-Iowa contest
It’s going to be a big-time atmosphere inside Kinnick Stadium this Saturday!
The Floyd of Rosedale trophy is once again on the line in a memorable rivalry. The Minnesota-Iowa rivalry goes all the way back to 1891 with the Hawkeyes dominating the recent history of the contest.
Iowa has won four straight in the series, along with five of the last seven games. Most notably, the Gophers have not won in Iowa City since 1999, going 0-8 since a 25-21 win that season.
Heading into Saturday, Iowa is still listed as a -3 favorite at home against P.J. Fleck’s undefeated Minnesota squad. However, the computer prediction put out by Odds Shark sees a bit of a different outcome.
According to that prediction, the Gophers will break the curse of Kinnick Stadium with a strong win against the Hawkeyes. The game is predicted to go down in favor of Minnesota, 33.4-26.2:
Saturday’s kickoff is set for 4 pm EST on FOX.
