Rivalries do not get much closer than the one between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Iowa Hawkeyes. Holding a slim 44-43-2 all-time record edge over their Big Ten West opponent, the Badgers travel to Kinnick Stadium hoping to get back on the winning path after dropping consecutive games for the first time in four years. Head Coach Paul Chryst also hopes to avenge last year’s 10-6 defeat at the hands of the Hawkeyes.
Iowa beat Purdue last week 49-35 that saw the Boilermakers come back from a 42-14 deficit heading into the fourth quarter.
Saturday’s game begins at 11 a.m., with the winner taking home the Heartland Trophy.
