I said I was taking the under in Iowa games until they gave me a reason not to, and Vegas setting a record low for the over/under won't deter me. Rutgers's offense against FBS opponents hasn't been great this year, and they're facing one of the toughest defenses in the nation. Iowa doesn't seem like they believe in playing on offense, and only practice defense and special teams. I'm sticking with the under.

Iowa being favored by 7.5 is pretty funny considering they struggle to score touchdowns at all. They’ve scored just 41 points in three games this year with 27 of those points coming against the Nevada Wolf Pack. Now Rutgers isn’t an offensive powerhouse, but they are 3-0 on the season. They might be able to stop the Hawkeyes offense, but the Hawkeyes will stop them. This is going to be a low scoring game with neither team doing much on the offensive end. This is going to be the epitome of BIG 10 football, as I’ll take the under at a miniscule 34 points.

Prediction: Take the under. Iowa is too good on defense to allow Rutgers much and too bad on offense to score.
