The Iowa Hawkeyes are back in action after a week off thanks to Thursday’s matchup with Michigan State was postponed. The Hawkeyes travel to Evanston to face off with a Northwestern team that’s lost four straight, starting with their trip to Iowa City when the Hawkeyes came away with an 87-72 win.
Despite the recent struggles, this is still a dangerous Northwestern team that was once inside the top-20 nationally. Iowa, still inside the top-5 in the nation, is playing funky just for their ranking but also a share of first place in the Big Ten. After a road loss by Michigan on Saturday, a win in Evanston would put the Hawkeyes atop the Big Ten standings heading into the meat of the conference schedule.
