I could be wrong but I think our defense can compete with anyone but they need the offense to help by not turning the ball over and by getting some first downs. I admit that I am biased and could be wrong. That being said I doubt that the offense will give us enough to tell us definitely.
I know what you mean and at the same time Iowa hasn't faced a dynamic QB or passing team this year. There are a lot of those teams out there. UM can push the ball by passing but that's not their #1 tool.
