Wisconsin (2–1) comes off an uncharacteristically flat performance in a 24–21 home loss to BYU last Saturday. The defense gave up significant chunk plays in the run game while the offense performed inconsistently against the Cougars.
Iowa (3–0) defeated Northern Iowa last weekend in a 38–14 win at home to end its non-conference schedule.
Of course, the Badgers and Hawkeyes are competing for the Heartland Trophy. Wisconsin has won at Kinnick the past four games on the road in this series and is looking to retain the coveted trophy for the third straight year.
