Almost none of the current members of the Ohio State football team have been to Kinnick Stadium, but all week the Buckeyes and their coaches have said they have a good idea what they will find when the head to Iowa City to play No. 21 Iowa.

Strategically, the Buckeyes say there is no reason to doubt the Hawkeyes will stick to what they traditionally do best.

Iowa wants to run the ball with talented tailback Adam Robinson and use play-action passing from quarterback Ricky Stanzi to throw the ball down the field to dangerous receivers such as Derrell Johnson-Koulianos and Marvin McNutt.

On the other side of the ball, the Hawkeyes hope their experienced, active front four will control the red-hot Ohio State running game while the back seven make life difficult for Buckeye quarterback Terrelle Pryor with defensive coordinator Norm Parker
