Michigan vs. Iowa highlights: Hawkeyes are defeated by Wolverines to win the Big 10 title.

The Big Ten Championship Game turned out to be as lopsided as we had anticipated. Although Iowa’s offense struggled at times this year, on Saturday night the Hawkeyes were unable to score a single point and lost 26-0 to the Wolverines.

In the Big Ten championship game, No. 2 Michigan (12-0, 9-0 in Big Ten play) will take on Iowa for the second time in three seasons.


The Wolverines defeated the Hawkeyes 42–3 in their previous meeting when the Big Ten championship was at stake. For Jim Harbaugh and company, the margin of victory doesn’t matter: defeat the Hawkeyes (10-2 7-2) to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff for the third consecutive season.

This is Michigan’s third straight conference championship.

JJ McCarthy, the quarterback for Michigan and a surefire first-round selection in the 2024 NFL Draft, completed the game with 22 of 30 passes for 147 yards. With two touchdowns and sixteen carries for fifty-two yards, Blake Corum led the team in rushing.

Michigan Wolverines

The University of Michigan is represented in college football by the Michigan Wolverines football team. In the history of college football, Michigan has the most victories overall. The team is well-known for its fight song, unique winged helmet, attendance records at Michigan Stadium, and numerous rivalries.

In 1879, Michigan started playing football against other colleges. The Big Ten Conference was founded in 1896, and the Wolverines have been a member ever since, with the exception of a break from 1907 to 1916.

Lowa Hawkeyes

The University of Iowa’s college football team is called the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Hawkeyes compete in the West division of the Big Ten Conference. After entering the Conference in 1899 (then called the Western Conference or Big Nine), Iowa participated in its inaugural Conference football season in 1900. Iowa City, Iowa is the site of the Hawkeyes’ home games.

The Iowa Hawkeyes’ football schedule for 2023 has been formally released. The Big Ten Conference Administrators Council unanimously approved the league’s slate, which was made public.

The Hawkeyes’ success thus far this season has been largely attributed to their defensive prowess. They rank fourth in the Big Ten and seventh among FBS teams, respectively, with respect to yards allowed per game (just 12.2) and 279.9, respectively.

The Wolverines just won their toughest game of the year, defeating Ohio State and Ryan Day (11-1, 8-1) without Jim Harbaugh on the field. With two interceptions, the defense demonstrated its strength and won the game against the Buckeyes 30–24 after a fierce battle. But J.J. McCarthy, Blake Corum, and the rest of the team will be up against another tough defensive assignment this Saturday.

Michigan’s win gave them the Big Ten championship for the third time in a row. The Wolverines finished the season with a perfect 13-0 record, virtually guaranteeing a spot in the College Football Playoff.
