MINNEAPOLIS The Iowa football team will battle Minnesota for the Floyd of Rosedale on Saturday at Huntington Bank Stadium. Iowa has beaten Minnesota in seven straight head-to-head matchups. The Hawkeyes are 43-42-2 against the Golden Gophers when Floyd is on the line.

Minnesota quarterback Athan Kaliakmanis will make his third career start Saturday. The Gophers’ usual starter, senior Tanner Morgan, is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Iowa’s defense will likely be tested by the Gophers’ rushing attack. The Hawkeyes will face another formidable running back in sixth-year senior Mohamed Ibrahim. After missing most of the 2021 season with a torn Achilles, Ibrahim has rushed for 1,261 yards and 18 touchdowns on 238 carries. Ibrahim has averaged more than 5 yards per carry this year.

Iowa wide receiver Arland Bruce IV was reportedly on the field during the early warmup session before Saturday’s game. Bruce missed last week’s game versus Wisconsin with an undisclosed injury.

Iowa is trying to win its fourth straight game and stay in contention for the Big Ten West title. Illinois lost to No. 3 Michigan, 19-17, Saturday afternoon. If the Hawkeyes beat the Gophers, they could make the Big Ten Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis with a win over Nebraska next week.
