Iowa College Football Preview 2021: What Will Happen, Season Prediction

It all comes down to just how explosive and how dangerous the offense can be.

The defense will be solid and among the best in the Big Ten, and the offensive line will get the job like Iowa offensive lines always do.

Now the offense has to be better at moving the chains and do a whole lot more to make defenses worry about downfield plays. And it has to happen right away with Indiana and at Iowa State to kickoff the season. Win those two, and it’s Game On.

Back-to-back trips to Wisconsin and Northwestern will be a concern, but there’s no Ohio State, Michigan, or Michigan State from the East, and Penn State is at home.

Any team good enough to dream of playing for the Big Ten Championship should beat Nebraska on the road, take out Indiana, Purdue and Minnesota at home, and then hope to catch a few breaks. This team has the potential to get all of that.

Steady is nice, and steady will get Iowa another great season with – after missing out last year – a strong bowl bid. Steady will get Iowa close, but it’ll need some surprises – again, from the offense – to get to make this a special year.
