We've discussed the postseason implications, we've interrogated a jNW blogger, we've previewed the game. It's time to put all that aside and get down to business: Iowa vs. Northwestern, for all the RO*TEL.

For Iowa, the stakes are high: a win means a .500 conference record (the first in five years) and a guaranteed winning record overall (also the first in five years), locks up the 7-seed in the Big Ten Tournament next weekend, and improves Iowa's postseason hopes. For Northwestern, the stakes are even higher: a win won't clinch anything, but a loss could cripple their hopes for an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament. It's also Senior Day, which means it's time for CHA to say "goodbye" to Matt Gatens, Andrew Brommer, Devon Archie, and Bryce Cartwright. We'll have more about their swan songs in the next few weeks, but this is it for them in Carver -- let's send them out with a bang, just like we sent out Jarryd Cole with a stellar win against Purdue a year ago. So, yes, there's a lot riding on this game -- it's arguably the biggest game in CHA in several years.

The game's on BTN at 1:30pm CT.

The standard rules of open threading apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no religion, no politics, no slurs, no douchebaggery, etc. Go Iowa. Beat Northwestern.
