Iowa suffered it’s worst loss of the season when they traveled to Lincoln just one month ago. The Hawkeyes shot a historically bad 12% from beyond the arc in one of the worst shooting performances in memory. It was ugly from start to finish, and yet the Hawkeyes were not blown out.
On Wednesday night, Iowa was blown out as they traveled east to West Lafeyette. The Hawkeyes didn’t shoot it poorly in that contest, but the home team shot lights out. As Iowa returns home to recover from the beatdown they suffered earlier this week, they’ll have a chance to flip their roles and become the hot shooting home team as they seek to avenge that earlier loss to Nebraska.
Can the Iowa defense find a way to get some stops? Can the Hawkeyes get hot from outside to even things out from the last meeting? Can Nebraska win another game this year? Here’s your quick look at the matchup between Iowa and the Cornhuskers.
