Iowa TE Sam LaPorta isn't a fan of participating in Wisconsin's 'Jump Around'
Hawkeyes tight end Sam LaPorta doesn’t look like he wants to participate in Wisconsin’s “Jump Around” on Saturday.
LaPorta was asked about whether the team would take part in the Badgers tradition during the 3rd quarter of each home game and confirmed that it’s likely not happening.
Iowa TE Sam LaPorta was asked whether Hawkeye players would take part in Wisconsin's "Jump Around" 3rd-quarter ritual as Michigan players did several weeks ago. His response?

Michigan’s players did this several weeks ago and it ended up turning alright for them. The Wolverines blasted the Badgers 38-17 and outscored them 25-7 in the 2nd half.
LaPorta will be hoping that his squad gets a win on Saturday after the Hawkeyes got embarrassed against Purdue on Oct. 16, 24-7. He comes into this matchup with 332 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns on 28 receptions.
All 3 of those stats are already career-highs through just 7 games.
Kickoff will be at Noon ET on Saturday as Iowa looks to improve to 7-1, while Wisconsin looks to get to 5-3.
