The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Iowa Hawkeyes haven’t met since 2010, but the two are set to reignite a series that has produced some nail-biting finishes this Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
No. 4 Ohio State (6-0) is coming off a much-needed bye week after playing two of the Big Ten’s strongest teams (Wisconsin and Northwestern) in back-to-back weeks.
The Hawkeyes (4-2) will be a week removed from a 26-14 defeat to Michigan State, a loss which snapped Iowa’s four-game winning streak.
The last two games between Ohio State and Iowa have come down to the wire.
In 2010, Ohio State drove 76 yards and Dan Herron scored the go-ahead touchdown with less than two minutes to go to seal a 20-17 victory in Kinnick Stadium.
The year before, the Buckeyes withstood a furious rally from the Hawkeyes as Devin Barclay knocked in a 39-yard field goal in overtime for a 27-24 victory. The win sent the Buckeyes to the Rose Bowl.
