The Iowa football team will take on Wisconsin at Kinnick Stadium Saturday with the Heartland Trophy on the line. The Hawkeyes have lost six of their last eight of matchups with the Badgers. The last time the Hawkeyes held the Heartland Trophy was 2020.

Wisconsin leads the all-time series 49-44-2. Saturday’s game will be Jim Leonhard’s fifth as interim head coach of the Badgers. Wisconsin has gone 3-1 since Paul Chryst was relieved of his head coaching duties six weeks ago.

The Hawkeyes and Badgers both enter Saturday’s contest riding two-game winning streaks.

Should Illinois lose two of its last three contests, the winner of Saturday’s Iowa-Wisconsin contest would have a chance to the make the Big Ten Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Dec. 3.
