Updated weather and odds

It’s a chilly morning throughout Iowa, so those tailgating hopefully either brought a jacket or a couple of extra beers to get warm. The high will reach close to 60 degrees F during kickoff and it will eventually taper off slowly toward the end of the game. Odds have moved in Iowa favor, as they are now closer to their two-touchdown favorite number of 12.5 points. The point total remains steady at 50.
