One last ride, Hawkeye fans! Iowa is set to take the field for the final time in the regular season as they enter Memorial Stadium in Lincoln to face off with the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
While Iowa is hoping to stay healthy and tune up for next weekend’s Big Ten Championship Game, they’re also looking to exact revenge on the Huskers, who took home the Heroes Trophy for the first time in eight years last season. They’re also playing for a ten-win season, something last done in 2021 - the last time the Hawkeyes played for the Big Ten Championship.
Both teams come into the day struggling to score, averaging fewer than 19 points per game. But Iowa has actually out-scored the Huskers on the season. On the other side of the ball, both defenses enter the day ranked inside the top-20 nationally. Again, Iowa holds an advantage statistically, but all the numbers go out the door when the lights come on.
Will Iowa find a way to score enough points against first-year head Husker Matt Rhule? Or will Nebraska spoil the fun for the Hawkeyes and and become bowl-eligible for the first time since 2016? We’re about to find out as the Hawkeyes and Huskers face off from Lincoln!
