Confidence. We have shot ourselves in every limb and yet are poised to take the lead before Half. Coverage breakdowns and yet good play on the lines on both sides of the ball (including actual holes to run through on the OL). Better tackling. Creating TOs. Good clock management at the end of the half to not leave time for OSU. There is a lot to like in this game.
Hawkeye fan here but family in NE & grew up watching the 90s championship seasons. Looks like the system is starting to work and your players are really starting to buy in. Looking forward to a promising IA/NE game.
