Iowa vs. Georgia Tech

Iowa's offensive line and the ability of its defense to slow the triple-option will lead the way to a close victory over Georgia Tech.

Iowa offense vs. Georgia Tech defense
• QB Ricky Stanzi is expected to return from an ankle injury that forced him to miss the last two starts of the regular season and he should give the Iowa offense a boost. Georgia Tech can still expect a steady diet of RBs Adam Robinson and Brandon Wegher, though. For starters, Stanzi is an inconsistent decision maker (five interceptions vs. Indiana) and the Hawkeyes will have a hard time coming out on top if they don't win the turnover battle. Secondly, Iowa's offensive line is capable of controlling the line of scrimmage against a Yellow Jackets defensive front that has had some problems slowing the run. Robinson and Wegher have the burst and vision to take advantage of the seams the big men create for them up front .
