The Iowa Hawkeyes are 4-0 entering Week 6.

Why is that important? Well, Iowa is undefeated, which is exactly where you always want to be. But, the Hawkeyes are also about to face their toughest test yet — a game at Michigan on Saturday. Kickoff is set for noon and the game will be televised on FOX.

Iowa-Michigan could have huge implications down the line and having a leader on your team that has been through it all before only helps. And that’s exactly what Iowa has in quarterback Nate Stanley.

On Tuesday, during his press conference, coach Kirk Ferentz spoke about Stanley:

It’s also not just his veteran presence that helps. But the fact that Stanley has thrown eight TD and zero INT this season has been a blessing. Why is that the case? Did Stanley just become an All-American overnight?

No. He’s a veteran. And Ferentz loves what he has in his signal caller going into Ann Arbor.
