Hawkeyes football

The Iowa Hawkeyes are on a 5-game winning streak after beating Illinois 35-21 last week. Iowa will have a tough task on Saturday as they will face rival Wisconsin. The Badgers have only played four games this season but still have a stout defense. Wisconsin has not only dominated the Hawkeyes, but the Big Ten West, winning 4 of the last 6 division titles. Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz wants to change that. Since 2010, the Badgers have won 7 of the last 8 meetings against the Hawkeyes.

After starting 0-2, the Hawkeyes have turned around their season outscoring their opponents 186-76 during the winning streak. Kickoff will be at 2:30 on Saturday at Kinnick Stadium.
