Iowa shut out through first half at home for first time in nearly a decade
The Iowa offense is still struggling even after the team’s 3-1 start. Michigan shut out Iowa in the first half for the first time since 2012 on Saturday.
Michigan went into half up 13-0 thanks to a touchdown on its opening drive and two field goals by Jake Moody.
Iowa fans were not happy with how the refs called the game through the first two quarters, and put half of the blame on the refs with the other half on Iowa as a whole.
J.J. McCarthy finished the first half with 105 yards passing. Blake Corum was able to have success against the Iowa run defense with 79 yards rushing.
Spencer Petras has 68 yards passing, while Leshon Williams has 18 yards rushing on the ground after two quarters.
The last time that Iowa was shut out in the first half was against Penn State in 2012. That game did not end well for the Hawkeyes as they were blown out 38-14 at Kinnick Stadium that day.
Michigan will have to score a few more times to reach that total. The game isn’t out of reach for Iowa just yet, perhaps Kirk Ferentz’s team can pull off the upset in the second half.
