Michigan State opens Big Ten play at Iowa
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Michigan State is as good at stopping the run as any team in the nation.
Iowa is built to run on anyone.
It should feel like a trip back in time when the Spartans (3-1, 0-0 Big Ten) open league play against the Hawkeyes (4-1, 1-0).
Michigan State ranks first in the country in total defense and in allowing less than 2.1 yards per carry. Iowa is third nationally with 263 carries and eighth with 1,222 yards rushing.
Throw in a forecast of gutsy wind, rain and temperatures in the 50s, and this matchup has all the makings of a physical, low-scoring matchup reminiscent of the Big Ten of old.
