Wyoming is definitely a buzz team this offseason as many think their quarterback could be a high draft pick in the spring. They can put the rest of the MWC on notice with a road victory.
Iowa is always steady but not expected to contend in the B10 this season. Still there is no reason they can’t win 8 games like they did a year ago.
That would definitely have to include getting this one at home.
Wyoming had a good year last year, making it all the way to the Mountain West title game. The even beat Boise State along the way though they struggled on the road all season long, including a loss at Eastern Michigan.
The story coming into the season is all about how QB Josh Allen is going to lead them even further.
He just might but a year ago they also had great balance. That is going to be a lot tougher with Brian Hill and his 1800+ rushing yards no longer on campus.
Wyoming is going to get a couple of shots to give Allen a Heisman moment and the team a chance to be a part of the national conversation.
The spread tells you the market does not seem to think they are really up for it.
The Hawkeyes are always a difficult team to get a read on. They scored 14 points and beat Michigan last year but they also scored only 14 points against lowly Rutgers.
There is enough talent to beat almost anyone but they also lost to North Dakota State. They will need to be focused for this one.
Last year the running game was the strength of the offense. That should be once again with a line returning 4 starters and Akrum Wadley returning at RB. He was one of two, 1000 yard rushers. Iowa should be able to maul Wyoming up front.
I expect the defense to be sound because it always is. They are going to want to put some pressure on Wyoming but their is a little unproven and so is the secondary.
If Allen is truly elite they could be in trouble.

I kind of want the Wyoming story to be true but I think I am going to need some evidence first. Hat might make this one a pass for me right now.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Wyoming +12.5
I can see this game going a lot of different ways. By taking the Cowboys I am expecting them to be able to generate enough offense to put some pressure on the home side.
An opening score would be awesome.
Wyoming is not going to be able to stymie the Iowa run game but if they can score enough in return to force them to take some chances I can see them even getting a win.
