Iowa football is set for its conference home-opener against No. 4 Michigan. The Hawkeyes and Wolverines will battle at 11:05 a.m.

Michigan is coming into the matchup with a 4-0 record, picking up victories against Colorado, Hawaii, UConn, and Maryland. In those four games, the Wolverines averaged 489 yards and six touchdowns per game.

But the Wolverines will be without their top tight end Erick All, who is out for the second straight game with an undisclosed injury. All has only three catches for 36 yards so far this season.

Running back Donovan Edwards, who has been out with a leg injury, is slated to return against Iowa. He will back up Blake Corum.

Iowa wide receiver Keagan Johnson will miss another game with an undisclosed injury. He played limited snaps against Nevada — his only action this season.

Hawkeye cornerback Terry Roberts is going through warmups. He was injured on Sept. 23 and did not play against Rutgers out of precaution. On Tuesday, head coach Kirk Ferentz said Roberts was limited in practice and was not sure if he would play against Michigan.

“Big Noon Kickoff” is in Iowa City this week. The pregame show aired live from the lawn between Hillcrest and Petersen residence halls.

Three of the four analysts picked Michigan to win the matchup. Urban Meyer picked Michigan, 13-10, Matt Leinart picked Michigan, 21-13, and Brady Quinn picked Michigan, 17-14. Reggie Bush was the sole analyst to pick Iowa, 21-17.

Iowa will honor its 2002 team Saturday. The group is returning to Iowa City this week for the 20-year anniversary of its Big Ten Championship. Former Iowa quarterback and 2002 Heisman Trophy runner-up Brad Banks will be the honorary captain.

This is also the annual America Needs Farmers game. Former Iowa tight end Tony Moeaki is the Iowa Farm Bureau’s Wall of Honor 2022 inductee.
