Minnesota is ranked #7 in the AP / Coaches and I would guess will be #10 or #9 in the CFP poll. Iowa is ranked #22 and #23 in the AP/Coaches and will be about the same in the CFP poll.

No line out yet, but I would guess Iowa is surprisingly -4 or -5

The West isn't a mathematical impossibility yet, but not likely and still a lot to play for. Win this game and get ranked back near the Top 15. Beat Illinois at home and Nebrantska on the road and finish 9-3 and possibly head to the Citrus or Holiday Bowl and get to 10 wins and a Top 15 ranking.

Pretty damn good season and will be nice to spoil the party for Minnesota.

Minnesota would have to lose out for Iowa to win the west. Come on now.

This makes no sense to me. Last week MN seemed overvalued against PSU in the line, and we were stunned it wasn’t bigger. This week, despite beating PSU, they seem undervalued.

Edit: I realize now the game is at Kinnick.

Kinnick is a big factor. I can see us beating Minnesota at home and the Gophers beating Wisconsin at home. I don’t see Minnesota winning out but we’ll see.

No shit, that is why it was listed as "isn't a mathematical impossibility" and not anything more.

Actually, I think Minnesota losing out is actually the much more realistic part of what it would take. They have to play @Iowa and Wisconsin. They are going to be underdogs or a toss up at best in those games. They also have to play @Northwestern and Fitz would love nothing more than to pull a rabbit out of his hat on them.

I feel better about them losing out than counting on Wisconsin losing to Nebrantska and Purdue.

I love Iowa in this game. Iowa is pissed and will be ready to jump all over Minnesota. Minnesota just had one of their biggest wins in 50? years and will have a hangover game.

Everything will be in Iowa's favor and against Minnesota.

I thought my Prairie Meadows App showed Minnesota -6 yesterday. Any of you go all Doug on that line?

I am much more confident about this one than last week's trip to Madison. Iowa wins by +10.

Assuming no hangover from Madison, I'd take Iowa to win straight up. Will be a close game though

I bet @foxhawks and @6deuce have hangovers from Madison
Dear god. My buddy in Madison (sorry, Jimmie) does it better than anyone I know. His tailgate machine is incredible. Automatic beer dispenser, Tito’s on tap. Brisket, chili, pizzas rolling out constantly. I decided to eat the ticket and stay at the tailgate spot. Drank from 8:00 AM until 1:30 AM. Preceded by 2 nights in Chicago and a Friday night in Madison...That’s gonna leave a mark.

St. Paul paper says Iowa will be facing a Heisman Trophy candidate qb on Saturday.

Hawks win this one, lose to Illinois (bad spot), and beat Nebrantska to feel good to end the year. Two more first round draft picks making it pretty depressing to have 4 of the top 40 players in college football the last 2 years without more than 8 regular season wins.

I have a weird feeling that this is going to be a lot like the MSU game in 2010 where we skullfucked a top 5 team with big hopes. Similar lead up and I think Iowa is going to put a similar beatdown on the Gophers.

Iowa 41
Minnesota 13

I said basically the same thing in the Wisconsin thread postgame discussion. I think they win out (but I expect the Illinois game to be maddening) and finish exactly how I predicted in August (9-3, with losses to UM, PSU, UW).

I wouldn't be surprised to find out tomorrow that Nate was actually concussed on that 2-pt conversion. Looked like his eggs got scrambled on the replay...

Ojuemudia went to the locker room late in the 3rd quarter. Linderbaum is playing dinged, but he's a tough SOB>

Wasn't Petras warming up after that happened?

The Hawkeyes haven't beaten a single good team all year. I think Minnesota might be good. I hope the Hawks can finally get one.

Iowa State away is a quality win.

He’s been really good (but not that good of course). Minnesota has too much offense for Iowa I think.
