Iowa will be looking for its first football victory of the season Saturday when Michigan State enters Kinnick Stadium fresh off a stunning upset of rival Michigan.

Iowa is a surprise 0-2 after close losses to Purdue and Northwestern. The Spartans are perhaps an equally surprising 1-1 under new coach Mel Tucker after opening the season with a loss to Rutgers.

The game will kick off at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Michigan State has a three-game winning streak against Iowa, most recently a 17-10 victory in 2017. Its starting quarterback is West Des Moines Valley graduate Rocky Lombardi.

Iowa is a 6.5-point favorite in Vegas with an over/under of 46.5.

Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz hasn't had a season start with an 0-2 record since 2000. But that's where he and the Hawkeyes are now, with Michigan State coming into Kinnick Stadium for an 11 a.m. game Saturday.
