Part Two: The Final Four Fantastic Finishes
When Iowa travels to Ann Arbor on Saturday, they will face this season's most impressive offensive force to date, all packed into one player—Michigan's Denard Robinson.
Even in defeat against Michigan State last weekend, Wolverine quarterback Robinson still managed to generate more than 300 yards of offense. This was billed as "containing him."
Michigan's offensive prowess will be pitted against the Hawkeyes' highly ranked defense in what promises to be an intense struggle on the front lines.
The difference in the game could come be the ability of the Wolverine defense to stop Iowa on offense.
It will hopefully be another fascinating game to add more sizzle to the historical football rivalry between Iowa and Michigan as we look back over the past 30 years.
Which down-to-the-wire games have provided the most excitement during these eight gridiron classics––as the game clock ticked down while one team was making a last second charge to score for the ultimate win? You be the judge.
So far we have surveyed rivalry years 1981, 1985, 1986 and 1988. To read those early year accounts in Part One, click here.
