Last Meeting: Iowa defeated Michigan 24-21 in 2013

What a win means for Michigan: This game may not be as important as it once did on the schedule, this is another game the Wolverines must win in order to have championship aspirations. It will continue to sound like a broken record until Ohio State week, but a victory over the Hawkeyes means the Wolverines took care of business on Saturday.

What a win means for Iowa: After suffering a disappointing season this year, a victory over Michigan on Saturday will really do wonders for Iowa's spirits. Likely putting a major blip on the Wolverines' radar, the Hawkeyes will have come in fired up by the primetime Kinnick Stadium crowd and pulled off a major upset.

Player to watch: Wilton Speight will have to throw at one of the best corners in the conference in Desmond King. Having only one interception this year after coming off a huge year last season, it doesn't take away the fact that he is a dangerous corner that should not be taken lightly. Considering the week Speight had last week, a dominant game through the air against the Hawkeyes will truly show his maturation and progression this season, especially if he manages to complete passes against King.
