Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz talks to referees nearby during a football game between Iowa and Nebraska at Kinnick Stadium on Friday, Nov. 25, 2022. The Huskers defeated the Hawkeyes, 24-17.

The No. 17 Iowa football team ventures westward for a Black Friday matchup against division rival Nebraska. In spite of already claiming the Big Ten West title last week against Illinois, Iowa still has plenty of motivation heading into this game as it looks to reclaim the Heroes Trophy after a loss last season.

Both the Hawkeyes and Cornhuskers yield less than 20 points per game to their opponents, but the Huskers have an interesting situation at quarterback, as three players have started under center this season. Whichever QB head coach Matt Rhule chooses, whether that be Heinrich Haarberg. Jeff Sims, or Chubba Purdy, that player will face an Iowa defense that has given up a grand total of two touchdowns over the last five games.

Matchup: No. 17 Iowa (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) vs. Nebraska (5-6, 3-5 Big Ten)

Scheduled game time: 11 a.m.
