Iowa vs. Michigan in Key College Football Betting Big Ten Matchup

A clear difference could be seen in Michigan last week. The Wolverines were coming off a humiliating 35-14 loss at Wisconsin. Head coach Jim Harbaugh was being derided by the national media and faithful. Players admitted the team lacked a College Football betting identity. To be exact Michigan was labeled as a fraud. Rutgers never stood a chance last Saturday in a 52-0 loss at the Big House. For at least a moment the Maize and Blue earned a respite from their Madison Massacre. This week the consistent and sound Iowa Hawkeyes will provide a tougher test.
