Iowa sets blackout for Heartland Trophy matchup vs. Wisconsin
Iowa is getting set for a huge B1G West rivalry matchup against Wisconsin in Week 11. With the Heartland Trophy up for grabs, the Hawkeyes are also trying to dial up a little extra juice for Saturday.
With a post on Twitter, Iowa officially set Saturday’s game in Kinnick Stadium as a blackout, urging all attendees to wear black.

The blackout will accompany Iowa’s special uniforms for the Military Appreciation Game. That uniform combination includes all-black jerseys and pants instead of the traditional gold pants. The helmet also features a patriotic Tigerhawk logo for the game.
Either way, Saturday’s game is a collision course between two teams on a rebound this season in Wisconsin and Iowa. Both teams have played better lately after disappointing starts to the season, and both teams are trying to keep slim B1G West hopes alive with a win.
With the Heartland Trophy up for grabs, it should be a phenomenal Saturday in Kinnick.
