Michigan has its defense to thank in its 10-3 win over Iowa, forcing four turnovers and a season high eight sacks. The Wolverines beat the ranked Hawkeyes, but the offense still had issues, with no passing touchdowns in the game. It was an important win for Jim Harbaugh and his staff, but there is still a long way to go to clean up the offense as Notre Dame, Michigan State, Penn State and Ohio State are still on the schedule.
The No. 7 Tigers and No. 10 Gators can't afford a loss with tough schedules ahead, while No. 25 Michigan State's defense will attempt to slow No. 4 Ohio State.
