Iowa special teams coach LeVar Woods knows he faces a challenge this weekend vs Rutgers. Woods pointed out that punter Adam Korsak hasn’t had a touchback in “roughly 136 attempts” and has never been blocked.

That is huge considering the fact that the Hawkeyes’ offense has struggled at times this season and has had to depend on their defense and special teams to bail them out at times.

The Scarlett Knights come into this game undefeated and they also have played great defense so far this season.

Rutgers has only given up a total of 42 points on defense this season, so the Iowa offense is definitely going to need help from its defense and special teams.

So, a blocked kick or even a kick-off return for a touchdown or just a good kick-off return to put their offense in good field position would help out a lot but it’s going to be tough for this squad this upcoming Saturday.
