In the last six meetings, the road team won the Heartland Trophy. On the surface, that is good news for Iowa, as the Hawkeyes look to knock off their second straight Top 10 opponent.
But picking up a victory at Camp Randall Stadium is easier said than done. Wisconsin enters the contest undefeated, the overwhelming favorite to win the Big Ten West division and the Big Ten’s best hope at a College Football Playoff participant.
This is your typical Wisconsin team. The Badgers want to be the toughest team on the field and use their offensive line, led by All-American candidate David Edwards, to clear a path to a victory. The Badgers are No. 16 nationally in rushing, averaging 244.78 yards per game.
Wisconsin freshman tailback Jonathan Taylor is a bonafide star. He has rushed for 1,368 yards and 12 touchdowns in eight games. He missed a game with injury.
“I’ll tell you, what a remarkable thing he’s done already,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “If he stopped right now, which would be okay with me, I mean, he’s already had a great season for anybody, let alone a true freshman. Just really, really impressive.”
The Wisconsin defense is stout. Six of its nine opponents have scored 14 points or less and it’s tied into the team’s run defense. The Badgers are No. 4 nationally, allowing 87.88 yards per game.
That stat is a concern for the Hawkeyes. They will look to replicate their offensive breakout from the Ohio State victory last week and that means a strong rushing performance. The Hawkeyes gained 243 yards on the Buckeyes.
Despite running different schemes, the Wisconsin and Ohio State defenses are similar. They both excel at stopping the run. The Buckeyes are No. 18 nationally. Iowa found a way to run through Ohio State. It will need to do the same with Wisconsin.
“It started up front,” said running back Akrum Wadley about the Ohio State win. “If they are having a good day then the whole team gets to have a good day.”
The Iowa-Wisconsin matchup is usually decided up front. The team with better rushing totals have won every matchup since the teams started playing again every season as division foes in 2013.
This year is likely to follow the same path.
