The best offensive team in the nation scored at least three touchdowns per game after 13-13 tie with Air Force in its second outing. Quarterback RANDY DUNCAN is an exciting, gambling play-caller with one of the half dozen best passing arms in college football. He has five top ends for receivers, led by CURT MERZ, who is not fast but makes impossible catches. The Hawkeyes have four dazzling halfbacks in WILLIE FLEMING, BOB JETER, RAY JAUCH (pronounced Yowk) and KEVIN FURLONG. The power runners are Fullbacks DON HORN and Captain JOHN NOCERA. Iowa can, however, be scored against, particularly on passes; the halfbacks are not very tall, and good receivers can get behind Duncan. The alternating Iowa lines—the lightest averaging 197 pounds—are brutes by most standards; and watch Guard GARY GROUWINKEL, a fine reliable linebacker and quick tough offensive blocker, on most of the wing-T running plays.
