Photos: Iowa vs Michigan Big Ten Championship

Michigan defeated Iowa, 26-0, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Sunday, claiming the title of Big Ten champions for the third year in a row, making it their 45th champion title, the most in the Big Ten. There was a record-breaking championship game attendance of 67,842.

Michigan first scored a 35-yard field goal in the first quarter and then a 2-yard touchdown from running back Blake Corum at the end of the first.

It wasn’t until the 3rd quarter that Corum would score another touchdown and field goal from kicker James Turner.

To finish off the fourth quarter, Michigan got two more field goals, and Michigan defensive end Derrick Moore sacked Iowa quarterback Deacon on 4th down to enforce Iowa’s second shutout of the season.

A week after Michigan offensive lineman Zak Zinter suffered a knee injury in the Ohio State game, both teams had four sacks.

Michigan forced three turnovers on Iowa and possessed the ball for 36:32 over Iowa’s 23:28.

The Wolverines led in first downs with 12 over the Hawkeyes 7, although both teams struggled with 3rd and 4th down conversions with Michigan going 3-15, 1-1, and Iowa 4-15, 0-3.

Iowa is bowl-eligible and will find out later this Sunday, Dec. 3, where and who they will face.
