Utah State prefers to run the football on offense, a style that chews up yards and the clock. Junior quarterback Cooper Legas is back, throwing 11 TDs with 10 interceptions as he ran for 303 yards. But the offensive line returns just one starter, losing its best blockers, plus they lost three of their top five receiving targets. The 2022 offense averaged just 22.2 points and 195.2 passing yards. Ageless Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz is back, which means the Hawkeyes will be a defensive powerhouse with limited offensive capabilities. The 2022 defense allowed 13 points or fewer in ten of the games. The offense, though, was 129th in total yards per game, 122nd in the nation in scoring, 128th in third down conversions, and last in the Big Ten in rushing. Take Utah State/Iowa UNDER the total - Max Play.
