Top 10 College Football Games (Week 3)

Iowa vs Arizona Football Tickets

Will the Hawkeyes be able to conrtol the Ball against the Arizona Wildcats?

We have another action packed weekend of college football ahead of us as many schools are just getting into conference play while others have big geographic rivalry games.  The frist 2 weeks of NCAA action saw few surprises as Alabama is still #1, with Ohio State (#2), Boise State (#3), TCU (#4), and Oregon (#5) hot on their tail.  Although no top 5 teams will be playing ranked opponents this week we still have some intriguing match-ups.  Perhaps, most interesting of the bunch is the #9 Iowa Hawkeyes vs #24 Arizona Wildcats.

This game should be extremely interesting as 2 two 25 teams with very different style meet in Tucson.  The key of the game will  be if the Arizona defense can continue its strong play.  If Arizona can cause a few turnovers and contain the Hawkeye ground game we could see a major upset here.

The Arizona Wildcats are coming off impressive wins against Toledo (41-2) and Citadel (52-6) in their first two weeks of action.  Nick Foles, the Wildcats QB, has been impressive racking up 574 yards connecting on 49 of 59 and 3 touchdowns.  His 174.7 passer  rating is good for 11th in the nation.  While the Arizona running game hasn’t been the center of the offense, both Nic Grigsby and Greg Nwoko have averaged over 8 yards per carry.   The big Arizona playmaker thus far has been standout wide reciever Juron Criner.  After just 2 games he has racked up 247 yards on 13 catches and 1 touchdown.  Although, the Wildcats defense will face a big test against the Hawkeyes, they have looked pretty tough thus far.

For the Iowa Hawkeyes, the have also looked pretty impressive while beating Eastern Illinois (37-7) and Iowa State (35-7).  Although the Hawkeyes do not have quite the explosive offense that Arizona has, their methodical clock killing running game has proven extremely effective.  Led by running back Adam Robison (265 Rushing yards), Iowa has rushed for 469 yards in just 2 games.   In the air the Hawkeyes have spread the ball out well with 6 receeiver racking up multiple catches.  Allen Reisner leds the team with 7 catches for 105 yards.  QB Ricky Stanzi has been solid connecting of 29 of 41 passes for 433 yards and 3 TDS. Most impressive is the fact that he has not throw an interception. This is key for a team that prides itself on time of possession and a strong defensive unit.

This game should be extremely interesting as 2 two 25 teams with very different style meet in Tucson.  The key of the game will  be if the Arizona defense can continue its strong play.  If Arizona can cause a few turnovers and contain the Hawkeye ground game we could see a major upset here.
