Why doesn't Iowa fall into Missouri? Because Minnesota sucks.
A remarkable victory, considering the Hawkeyes netted 6 yards on the ground, and gave up more than 100 years to each of Minnesota's two great backs. Yet the Hawkeyes don't beat themselves and make big plays when they need them.
Next week's season finale against Wisconsin won't be quite the game it could have been now that Wisconsin is no longer unbeaten, but a share of the Big Ten title will still be at stake if Michigan loses at Ohio State. It will also be worth watching simply because Drew Tate is one of the more entertaining quarterbacks to watch since the days of Doug Flutie at BC. He makes plays that quite simply should not be made.
