We have reached week three of the college football season which means there are a lot of FCS vs FBS showdowns. That is the case in this game when the Northern Iowa Panthers make the trip to Iowa City to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes.
These two teams have played five times before with the Hawkeyes winning each of the previous matchups.
Northern Iowa Panthers
The Northern Iowa Panthers have played one game so far this year and they actually played decent against Montana but they couldn’t find the game at the end and they lost 26-23.
They fell behind 26-0 before the offense picked it up in the second half. They couldn’t successfully complete an onside kick with under three minutes left and it led to a loss.
The Panthers offense started off slow and they need to figure out a solution at the quarterback position. They only had 164 yards through the air and if they want any chance in this game they are going to need to be better through the air.
On the defensive side of the ball they gave up 273 yards through the air but against the run they were strong allowing less than 100 yards.
It will probably take a couple of lucky bounces if they want to win this game but with everything going perfectly they could pull the upset.
On the other side of this matchup is the Iowa Hawkeyes who have looked really good so far this year especially on the defensive side of the ball.
They have given up only ten points total in the two games including giving up only three points in their last game against Iowa State Cyclones.
Junior quarterback Nathan Stanley has been considered an NFL prospect but he is going to need to play better than he has the first couple of games.
He has thrown for only 274 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also has a low completion percentage of 52.9 percent.
If the defense is strong again in this game, they really shouldn’t have any issue in this game coming out with a victory.
