Michigan DT Kris Jenkins addresses matchup with Iowa: 'They're going to give us violence'
One player on Michigan’s defense is going to taking the Iowa offense very seriously. Kris Jenkins knows that it isn’t going to be easy per Clayton Sayfie of On3 Sports.
Jenkins has had his fair share of appearances for Michigan, playing in 19 total games for the Wolverines. Despite how Iowa has played in the past, he knows that the Hawkeyes aren’t going to be pushovers.
“Iowa’s definitely a team you can’t sleep on, regardless of how they have been doing or their record or the teams they’ve faced,” Michigan junior defensive tackle Kris Jenkins said. “They’re going to give us everything they got. They’re going to give us intensity, they’re going to give us violence, they’re going to play with good form on offense.”
Jenkins is aware of the dogfight that is about to take place at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday. In the Hawkeyes last 6 home games against top 5 teams they have gone 5-1.
The plan of attack for the Iowa offense will involve establishing the run game, and Jenkins is up for the challenge.
“And it’s going to be a dogfight,” said Jenkins. “They’re going to see how long we can hold out. They’re going to try to run the ball on us. It’s just a question of honing down, playing our defense and stepping up to the challenge. Can’t sleep on them.”
Michigan and Iowa face off Saturday at noon ET on FOX.
