Iowa didn’t play too well against Michigan this past Saturday.

Granted, the Hawkeyes lost 10-3. It was a close game. It was at Michigan. Iowa lost by one score. Defensively, the Hawkeyes held the Wolverines to just 10 points.

But again, a loss is a loss. And, with quarterback Nate Stanley leading the way, we all expected more than three points to be put up.

So, what’s next for Iowa? A matchup against No. 10 Penn State. This week, though, the Hawkeyes will be in the comforts of their own home at Kinnick Stadium.

That changes things.

BTN analyst J Leman talked about the upcoming game at Iowa:

“Kinnick is where top 10 teams go to die. That’s a tough place to play if you’re a top 10 team. Look at the track record at what the Hawkeyes have done there.”

“One thing I’ve learned about Iowa, you don’t judge them on their last game and you don’t judge them on the road, because at home they’re going to be ready to play.”

Leman surely isn’t incorrect in his thinking. Yes, Iowa lost on the road a week ago. But, the Hawkeyes are different at home.

Just look at what they did to Ohio State — another top 10 team — at Kinnick Stadium two season ago: Iowa won 55-24. It crushed the Buckeyes’ hopes of making the College Football Playoff.

Throw Iowa’s record out. Throw out what it does on the road and don’t look at last week.

Look at this week, at Iowa, against a top 10 team in Penn State that is very young.

Could an upset be on its way? We’ll find out at 7:30 p.m. ET this Saturday on ABC.
