Wisconsin was 6-0 to start the season. Then, it lost a disastrous game to Illinois and followed that up with a 31-point loss to Ohio State.
Iowa, on the other hand, didn’t necessarily start off slow — but it has won its last two games and is back to playing good football.
The Badgers and Hawkeyes face each other at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. The Big Ten West standings could be shuffled around after this week and if Minnesota were to lose to Penn State, a Badger or Hawkeye team — that both still have to play the Golden Gophers — would only be one loss behind Minnesota.
Which, obviously, makes this Wisconsin-Iowa matchup mean that much more. The winner of the division could end up being the winner of this game.
Ahead of the B1G clash, Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst spoke with the media and talked about Iowa. He said that anytime you play Iowa, it’s a big game. That and more below:
