Remember the days when Iowa could depend on conference wins over Indiana?
In truth, Kirk Ferentz hasn't done poorly against the crimson and cream, posting a 7-2 record against the Hoosiers since 2001.
However, according to Docsports, Indiana is a two-point favorite heading into this game, and given the way the Hawks have played lately, it seems like the handicappers are being generous.
This is especially true given that IU's fast-paced, high-powered, speedy offense is custom-made to shred the Iowa defense.
The Hawkeyes sit at 4-4. The last time the Hawkeyes saw the underside of .500 during the regular season followed their fifth game in 2007. The team that delivered that third loss was the Indiana Hoosiers.
