Iowa faces its biggest test defensively as Ohio State (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) boasts the country’s No. 2 total offense, averaging 543.7 yards per game. The Buckeyes average a nation’s best 48.8 points per game offensively.

“We face a big challenge this Saturday playing Ohio State. Pretty much any year I talk about Ohio State, you’re talking about a team that is very talented. They’re very well coached. That’s certainly the case this year in both of those areas. As you might expect, ranked near the top of the national polls for good reason. They have a really good football team,” Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz said of Ohio State.

Before kickoff, let’s take a look at how fans can watch the Iowa Hawkeyes’ trip to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Plus, a look at the injury report and key players for both.
