Iowa Form


Iowa have enjoyed a highly successful start to the season, rising from 18 to five in the rankings.

The Hawkeyes sent an early message with a 34-6 blowout of #17 Indiana and then topped that a week later with a 27-17 win over #9 Iowa State.

A one-sided 30-7 win over Kent State followed, before Iowa made it 4-0 with a 24-14 win over Colorado State last weekend.

QB Spencer Petras has pedestrian numbers so far. He is 64/107 for 684 yards, four touchdowns and a pick.

He has not needed to deliver with his arm though, because this offense is built on the run game.

RB Tyler Goodson has 364 yards and five touchdowns off 80 carries, with Ivory Kelly-Martin chipping in with 91 yards.

On the other side of the football the defense has been opportunistic with nine takeaways so far.

They have put points on the board too. Riley Moss has two pick sixes and Jack Campbell has a fumble recovery for a score.

Maryland Form


Maryland boast a perfect record as they prepare for their biggest test of the season so far.

They opened with a 30-24 win over West Virginia before destroying Howard 62-0 a week later.

The Terrapins then edged Illinois 20-17 and followed that up with a 37-16 success against Kent State.

QB Taulia Tagovailoa has impressed through the first four weeks, going 111/147 for 1,340 yards, 10 touchdowns and a pick.

Dontay Demus has been his favorite target, hauling in 24 catches for 446 yards and three TDs.

Rakim Jarrett (265 yards, 3 TDs) and Jeshaun Jones (201 yards) have both played a big part in the passing game too.

Maryland also boast a dual threat out of the backfield. Tayon Fleet-Davis has 413 yards from scrimmage and five TDs.

Maryland should pose more of a challenge than the last time these two teams met.
