Hawks beat Cyclones who beat the Sooners.They played PSU who went tooth & nail with tOSU.I know you shouldn't factor in transitive properties but it's CFB and they are at home

Plus its a 2:30 CDT start in Iowa, about half a time zone west of Ohio.

But if the game does go over 3.5 hours, the sun will be setting just in time for Iowa to kick one of those last minute game winning FG under the lights.  

You know, the kind of game winning kick that Iowa likes to kick at home every now and then against a visiting top 5 team.  Much like the 2008 game against #3 PSU, which was a 2:30 start.
Well... 2 things...
1) PSU this year already cracked that top 5 voodoo Iowa had been having, and
2) Good thing OSU is ranked 6th to avoid all the hub bub about a top 5 team in Kinnick stadium.

there might be enough whiskey in Texas to get me to play golf in the dark in November in NW Iowa, but someone else will be buying

Yeah, I am not feeling it this time.  This just feels like OSU is going to blow out Iowa by 4 TD's.  

Everybody knows Iowa can't score more than 17 points.  Once OSU scores its 3rd TD, ithe game's over.

If you're golfin' in NW Iowa, then the Whisky isn't going to do you any good if it's in Texas. Unless you've gotta really long straw. 
And who said anything about stopping in November? Those suckers shine through snow, amigo.You can hit the links after work all through the Winter months. 
Well. So long as it's not raining, of course. That would just be crazy.

Man, Gut feeling coming up:

I'm thinking the Bucks roll this week, no let down by the D or O. I like the tune of 45-10, with the biggest play of the game coming at the end of the 1st quarter with a wave to the "real heroes" up on the 12th floor.

Three quarters into the game last week it looked like the story of the 2017 Ohio State Buckeyes was going to be of a team that rolled inferior competition, but laid an egg every time they faced a real foe. Instead, J.T. Barrett probably came up with his first signature moment since the Buckeyes 2014 win in East Lansing and now the Buckeyes control their own Big Ten title, and likely College Football Playoff destiny.  But ask Penn State, Iowa City is no fun.  While it won't be a true night game, like Penn State had to deal with, it should be close enough, and Hawkeye fans are happy to get some positive momentum after seizing Floyd back last weekend.  Iowa's defense has been good all year, but is playing absolutely lights out right now.  They allowed 35 points in the first 5 quarters of Big Ten play (28.0 ppg), but have allowed only 39 points in 15 regulation quarters since (10.4 ppg).  You want a tutorial on bend but don't break?  Iowa is 12th in the conference in total defense, at 389 ypg, but 2nd in scoring defense.  They've surrendered only 8 touchdowns, fewer than every school but Wisconsin...who is 2nd in total defense.  They haven't been tested like this though.  J.T. Barrett's performance on Saturday made the Silver Football suddenly a two man race.  Barrett is leading the conference at over 300 passing yards per game, while also leading in passing efficiency, thanks to a conference best 71.4% completion rate and an amazing 18-0 TD-INT ratio.  I don't think there is a quarterback in the nation, Baker Mayfield included, playing any better.  The Hawkeye defense is good, but that style isn't going to work 100% of the time.  You give up yards like that, and Ohio State will make you pay.  It also bears mentioning that the opponents during that 15 quarter streak were Michigan State, Illinois, Northwestern and Minnesota, not exactly an offensive juggernaut in the bunch.  Kinnick will be a factor, and I think we see the best Iowa offensive performance in weeks, but defensively I don't think Iowa forces enough three and outs to give their offense much to work with even when they do get stops.
OHIO STATE 34, IOWA 20

If Ohio State wins, it won't be by 17plus points. 

Iowa at home, against a a top ten team...guaranteed :

Physical as hell
Slow the pace therefore speeding up the game
Give you few shots with the ball, especially in the red zone
Make you March the whole field
Bring at least a few wrinkles that are not anywhere on film- Ferentz always has a few for the Buckeyes.

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

In 2017, is Iowa better than Ohio St?

Yes!  Here's why:

    First, on  2017/09/09, Iowa     beat Iowa St   44 - 41 OT
     Next, on  2017/10/07, Iowa St  beat Oklahoma  38 - 31 
  Finally, on  2017/09/09, Oklahoma beat Ohio St   31 - 16

That previous poster is a moron. ;) The way I really see it is if it is a 5-3 or 6-4 game, Iowa has a real shot.

But, Iowa lost 2 out of its 3 games with 17-10 scores this season. I am thinking its 17-10, Ohio St.
