5 things to watch for in Iowa vs. Ohio State game

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -

Iowa's Jake Rudock once quarterbacked his Florida high school team in a game at Ohio Stadium.

Saturday's return to the Horseshoe figures to have a considerably different atmosphere.

Rudock will lead the Hawkeyes (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) against No. 4 Ohio State (6-0, 2-0), riding an 18-game winning streak, before more than 105,000 partisan fans.

Rudock, who led Fort Lauderdale's St. Thomas Aquinas to a lopsided victory over Upper Arlington before a small crowd in the cavernous stadium, is now in charge of a run-first offense led by running back Mark Weisman. Iowa's staunch defense gives up just 89 yards on the ground per game.

Meanwhile, the Buckeyes are trying hard to concentrate on the Hawkeyes as they iron out a few problem areas heading into the stretch run.
