An early Big 10 clash pins the Rutgers Scarlet Knights against the Iowa Hawkeyes Saturday afternoon.
Both teams come in off Week 1 wins that were blow outs against sub par competition.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers had an abysmal 2018 and started off their 2019 campaign right where they left off.
They saw themselves down 21-7 to Umass early in the 2nd and it looked as if it was going to be the same old story for the Scarlet Knights. However, the script was quickly flipped as Rutgers rattled off 31 straight in the 2nd quarter to take a 38-21 lead into half.
Things got even better for them as the defense came up huge not allowing any more points as Rutgers rolled to a 48-21 win.
Now, they’ll look to pull off their first upset of the season and they’ll really need to play a complete, clean game in this one.
Look to RB Isaih Pacheco, who carried the load in game 1. Pacheco got himself going early as he finished with 156 yards ad 4 touchdowns.
He is the spark to this offense as he they go when he goes.
As a team, Rutgers put up 554 yards against Umass. The task is certainly taller here against this defense in Week 2.
Iowa has always been known to just wear teams out.
That was the case in Week 1 as they took it to Miami OH 38-14. While bettors were frustrated with them not covering the -25, Iowa still really dominated the game in all facets.
The Hawkeyes ran a much more balanced attack as they threw for 252 yards while rushing for 213. Iowa is working to keep that trend here as the pass game really opens up the run game.
Iowa had 7 different players have at least 1 rushing attempt as their is certainly their plans moving forward.
They have a lot of playmakers and want to get touches in for these guys. Mekhi Sargent led the way with 91 yards on the ground and also had 65 receiving through the air.
The Hawkeyes come in just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Big 10 Conference matchups.
