The one-third mark of the Big Ten season looms.

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Let's just get it out of the way right away: Rutgers is bad. Really, really bad. They lost by 50 (!) points in their last game -- at home. They scored fewer points in that game (57) than their opponent had rebounds (62). They are one of the worst Big Ten teams we have ever seen -- if not the worst. They are every bit as bad as some of the cupcakes that Iowa paid to come to CHA to get a whipped earlier this year.

Sure, everyone on Rutgers could shoot out of their minds tonight and everyone on Iowa could shoot like they can't see straight... but it's not all that likely, you know? Rutgers is a bad team and they match up badly with Iowa (in fairness, they don't really match up well with anyone). The overwhelmingly most likely outcome here is a comfortable Iowa win. Frankly, we're most curious to see which members of the bench mob get chances to play tonight and how they look.

The game tips off at approximately 6 PM CT, with TV coverage from ESPNU (and online coverage from WatchESPN).

The usual rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no politics, no religion, no slurs, etc. Don't be an ass.

Go Hawks.
