Taylor Lewan is familiar with Kinnick Stadium.

And, evidently, the Iowa football crowd knows a lot about Michigan’s senior offensive lineman.

“They’re pretty educated,” Lewan explained during a Monday press conference. “They know my name. They know my parents’ names. They know my brother’s name.

“It’s always nice to get a little chirp here and there from the fans.”

Lewan will get reacquainted Saturday when the Wolverines visit the Hawkeyes for an 11 a.m. game.

He was part of a Michigan team that beat Iowa 42-17 last season in Ann Arbor and lost to the Hawkeyes 24-16 two years ago in Kinnick.

“They definitely let me know about being in Iowa City and all that,” Lewan said.

Meanwhile, Brady Hoke sounded like a coach who enjoyed his most recent road trip.

He was still basking in the glow of last Saturday’s 27-19, triple-overtime victory at Northwestern.

“We needed to go out and play Michigan football and fight for 60-plus minutes,” Hoke said. “I think the teaching moments are so critical for the team, especially when you’ve got young guys.”
