The No. 12 ranked Missouri Tigers battle the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Insight bowl. The latest college football odds for this bowl game have the Tigers labeled as three point favorites with the total set at 46.5. Iowa Head coach Kirk Ferentz has won five bowl games with the Hawkeyes and looks to make it six when he faces the Tigers at the Insight bowl. Iowa is 13-10-1 in college football post season play and has won its last two outings in bowl games.

The Hawkeyes have an effective offense led by quarterback Ricky Stanzi who has shattered several records while at Iowa. The Hawkeyes are disciplined on both sides of the ball and rarely penalized. The offense will be short-handed for this game as running back Adam Robinson and first-team All-Big Ten wideout Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, will miss the game due to violations. They will have to make up for this loss with mistake free football.They are seventh in fewest penalty yards at 38.9 per game and tied for 21st in fewest penalties per game with just 5.1.

Missouri will counter against that top-flight offense with a shutdown defense. The Tigers have the top scoring defenses in the country, ranking sixth overall with 15.2 points allowed per game. Defensive coordinator Dave Steckel has improved this team and made them into sure fire tacklers that are always around the ball carrier.

The Tigers are 5-12 ATS against a team with a winning record and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games at a neutral site games as a favorite. The Hawkeyes are 15-6-1 ATS against a team with a winning record and 7-2 ATS in their last nine non-conference games.

The key to this game may be turnovers, and area that Iowa has excelled at. They have just nine turnovers on the season which is tied for fewest in the nation with the Wisconsin Badgers. The experience of the Hawkeyes and the ability to hold onto the ball will make the Hawkeyes a winner in the Insight bowl.
