The encouraging news, for Schiano, is that overall the offense has been improved from last year. In the second half against Boston College, an offensive line that was much maligned a season ago was impressive.

On Wednesday, Schiano was asked about the offense’s growth and what makes him feel positive about their development through the first three games.

“Well, I think our offensive line is improving. Wasn’t our best outing Saturday, but I see it in practice, and I saw it in two games,” Schiano said.

Saturday’s opponent, Iowa (2-1, 0-0 Big Ten) has had a bit of a slow start to the season. But defensively,…
