Study Hall: Iowa 24, Michigan 21

Matthew Holst

Advanced stats from Iowa's 24-21 win over Michigan on Saturday.

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

This is a strange sentence to type, but Iowa beat Michigan because the Hawkeyes could pass and the Wolverines couldn't. Granted, Jake Rudock threw three picks, which kept Michigan in the game a while; and granted, most of the passing came on standard downs -- if Iowa fell behind schedule, the drive was typically over quickly -- but it all counts.

And I write this every week: How in the world can Michigan's running game be this consistently awful?
