Michigan vs. Iowa Live Score, Updates, 2021 Big Ten Championship Game Highlights

Michigan overcame a major hurdle when it brought down Ohio state last week. It was the Wolverines’ first win over the Buckeyes since 2011 and the first in Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s tenure.

But with a loss to Iowa on Saturday in the Big Ten title game, the win over Ohio State would suddenly have much less meaning. Again, it would be a symbol of Michigan reaching a major hill and not clearing it, something that has plagued corn and blue since Harbaugh’s arrival.

Yet this is arguably one of the best teams Harbaugh has lined up on his return to Ann Arbor. The Wolverines, like the Hawkeyes, have been known for their strong running and defensive games this season. In fact, the best player on the field for both teams is likely not a quarterback.

For Michigan, it will likely be defensive end Aidan Hutchinson or linebacker David Ojabo leading the charge for the Wolverines’ defense. Hutchinson had three sacks against Ohio State and is now the Wolverines’ one-season record holder in that category. Ojabo, meanwhile, provides a nice complement, with 11 tackles for loss and 11 sacks as well.

But Iowa’s offensive line features Tyler Linderbaum, the best center in the nation. He will likely be tasked with creating holes for star running back Tyler Goodson, while Michigan’s offensive line will have to do the same for Hassan Haskins. Haskins scored five touchdowns against Ohio State.

This game is a must win for Michigan and could help define Harbaugh’s legacy at his alma mater. However, an Iowa win will likely keep the Big Ten out of the playoffs.
