The Michigan State Spartans look to extend their current winning streak over the Iowa Hawkeyes today to an all-time MSU record of four wins. The Spartans make their first trip to Kinnick Stadium since 2013, where Connor Cook made his big time debut as the starting quarterback. Since then, the Spartans have won the 2015 Big Ten Championship game over Iowa, and a home win at Spartan Stadium in 2017.
Now having mentioned the great wins of late in this series, let me get the ugly out of the way. I am still incredibly bitter about the 2009 loss at Spartan Stadium when Iowa managed to grab the win at the last second right in front of where I was sitting in the student section (thank you high school classmate who gave me his ticket while he went home that weekend). I am even more bitter about the miserable 2012 rain soaked tailgate scene and loss to the Hawkeyes I drove all the way from Washington, D.C. to endure. I want utter domination today, whether that is realistic to expect or not. Proper vengeance requires seizing control of this series from the one game deficit MSU sits in currently for the all-time series.
