GAME THREAD: Minnesota vs. Iowa

Can the Golden Gophers pull off the upset in Iowa City?

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Not doing much on a Saturday night like yours truly? Watching to see if an upset could give the Wisconsin Badgers a slight chance at the Big Ten Championship game? It's a little late, but chat here with B5Q as the No. 5 Iowa Hawkeyes (9-0, 5-0) look to continue their undefeated season against the Minnesota Golden Gophers (4-5, 1-4).

It's 17-14 in favor of head coach Kirk Ferentz's squad as of the time of this game thread publishing. Iowa's already rushed for 100 yards, but Minnesota's also thrown for over 100 yards in less than two quarters.

For Wisconsin, a loss by Iowa would mean the Badgers would essentially pull within a game of the Big Ten West division. The Hawkeyes would still have to lose one more game and the Badgers would need to win out for Paul Chryst's team to leapfrog their rivals for the division title due to the 10-6 Iowa victory against Wisconsin in early October.
