IOWA VS. MICHIGAN STATE: FIRST HALF GAME THREAD

Rain, wind, and brutal defense. This! Is! B1G football!

This is your time to shine, defense.

It's Homecoming -- and the home opener for Iowa in B1G play. It's also a chance for Iowa to win their fifth straight game; Iowa hasn't put together a winning streak that long since the salad days of 2009.

Standing in the way of a 5-1 record (2-0 in the Big Ten) for Iowa? Michigan State, 3-1 and coming off a bye week and possessing, according to several statistics, the toughest defense in the nation. Outside of turnover-filled games in 2010 and 2011, this series has produced a lot of very close, very low-scoring, very defense-oriented games. I'm not expecting much different from this game.

Kickoff is at 11 AM CST on ESPN2.

The usual rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no religion, no politics, no slurs, etc. Don't be an asshole.

Go Hawks. Beat Sparty.
