IOWA CITY, Iowa — Turnovers. They’ve been the difference in the last two games between the Iowa Hawkeyes and Northwestern Wildcats. The question is will they be the difference Saturday when the teams play before what promises to be a very heavy black-and-gold sellout inside Ryan Field on the campus of NU.

Iowa ranks among the nation’s leaders in turnover margin and they’ve given a freebie to their opponents only six times thus far in 2010. Game time weather may be ripe for slippery leather, however, as on-and-off rain is expected in the greater Chicago area all day.

“Northwestern, they are going to run the ball more. They are going to end up with probably 35, 40 carries in the game, so it’s a little different than what we saw last week.”

“You’ve got two even teams. One team played clean, played really well and the other team didn’t and it’s pretty academic who is going to win or lose,” Ferentz said Tuesday when he huddled with local, regional and national media for their weekly chat.

That conversation also included a comparison between Iowa’s opponent last week and its opponent this week. Both like to throw it. Northwestern has a quarterback that also doesn’t mind running with it.

“First thing I would say about him is he’s a tremendous competitor. He’s not in awe of anything. He just plays very well and he’s a guy that throws the football well, but also can run it and that’s going to be the difference from last week in terms of attack,” said Ferentz.

“Northwestern, they are going to run the ball more. They are going to end up with probably 35, 40 carries in the game, so it’s a little different than what we saw last week.”
