FOOTBALL: 2008 Week Seven - Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Indiana Hoosiers Preview VS.
GAME INFO: Sat., Oct. 11th, 2008 - 11:03 AM CST - Memorial Stadium - Bloomington, IN
IOWA: 3-3 (0-2) NR / INDIANA: 2-3 (0-2) NR

TV COVERAGE: BTN (HD) will televise the game to a national cable audience. Wayne Larrivee, Chris Martin will call the action.

LINE: Iowa is a 6 point favorite on the road.

Alright, enough is enough. This is not a bad Iowa team. It's a good, young Iowa team. Mistakes are being made all over the field, but you can't deny this team has talent.

Although I thought the MSU game would the turning point of the season for the Hawks, it has now moved to this game. Indiana's defense is borderline awful, and without James Hardy to run wild on Iowa, this game shouldn't be close. The Hoosiers still have Thigpen and Lewis, but those two aren't going to be nearly enough.

Shonn Greene could honestly break the school record today in Bloomington. It won't happen, as he won't get enough carries to do so, but this defense's rushing D is horrendous. Greene is going to run wild in this game. Stanzi will continue to make his mistakes, but all in the will be fine if he continues to show he can stretch the field.

Iowa could possibly be the best 3 win team in the nation (yes, it's sad to say, but it's true).

I like Iowa in this one, big.

Offensive Player of the Game: Shonn Greene (Seventh consecutive week for obvious reasons)
Defensive Player of the Game: A.J. Edds

Iowa - 34
Indiana - 10
