Result:
LOSS

Colorado State must be wondering, "Who scheduled this game?" It's the second straight road game for the Rams, who have a losing record after three games. They're rebuilding off a 1-4 campaign where the defense allowed 36 points per contest. The offense is all RB David Bailey, but the kid runs into a powerhouse Iowa defensive line. Colorado State is 3-9 ATS following a victory, 3-8 ATS as a road underdog, and 4-14 ATS against defensive teams that allow 285 or fewer yards per game. Unbeaten Iowa has already faced two Top 20 teams, stuffing Indiana (34-6) and Iowa State (27-17). The offense will pound the Colorado State defensive line all day behind All-America center Tyler Linderbaum and All-Big Ten running back Tyler Goodson (307 yards, 5.0 yards per carry). They're outscoring opponents 33.9 to 10 after three games, and the Hawkeyes are 76-57 ATS in the first half of the season, as well as 26-14 ATS after allowing 125 or fewer rushing yards per game in three straight contests. With the Mountain West opener on deck against San Jose State, look for Colorado State to be focused elsewhere, such as staying healthy and getting out of town quickly. Play Iowa.
