Hope you didn’t blink, because the 2022 regular season is set to come to an end this weekend. Your Iowa Hawkeyes are preparing to take the field one last time from Kinnick Stadium as they play host to the Nebraska Cornhuskers on senior day.
While this matchup always has some juice, this season will have a bit more. Beyond playing for the Heroes Trophy, the Hawkeyes control their own destiny entering today’s game and can lock up a second consecutive Big Ten West division title with a win over Nebraska today.
Iowa comes in winners of their last four games to turn their season around. Meanwhile, the Huskers are headed in the other direction. After an abysmal start, Nebraska fired head coach Scott Frost, but have gone just 2-6 since his departure and have lost five straight under interim head coach Mickey Joseph.
Can the Hawkeyes make it eight straight against their rivals from the west? Can Spencer Petras, Jack Campbell and the rest of the Iowa seniors get a victory in their final game inside Kinnick Stadium? Or will the Cornhuskers play spoiler for the first time since 2014 and close out their season with a W?
We’re about to find out as the Hawkeyes and Huskers kick off in Kinnick!
