Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz And Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh Preview The BIG Championship

Iowa is a massive underdog as the 18th ranked Hawkeyes prepare for the Big Ten Championship against second ranked Michigan.

The Wolverines are 12-0 and crushed the Hawkeyes 42-3 in the title game two years ago.

That’s Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz who says being an underdog in a big game is nothing new for the Hawkeyes.

Despite injuries to several key players and an offense that only scored 11 touchdowns in nine conference games the Hawkeyes scratched and clawed their way to a 10-2 record.

Ferentz expects Drew Stevens to resume the kicking duties against Michigan. Marshall Meeder kicked the game winning field goal at Nebraska after Stevens had two field goals blocked and had two kickoffs go out of bounds against the Huskers.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh returns to the sideline after a three game suspension from the Big Ten in the midst of a sign stealing scandal. He was also suspended by the school for the first three games due to an NCAA investigation.

Harbaugh says the Big Ten title game is the next step for his team.

Harbaugh was asked about playing an Iowa team that is known for winning ugly.
