What to Know

After two games on the road, the Wisconsin Badgers are heading back home. Their bye week comes to an end as they meet up with the Iowa Hawkeyes at 4 p.m. ET at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday. These two teams have allowed few points on average (Wisconsin 11.38, Iowa 10.13), so any points scored will be well earned.

The oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for the Badgers two weeks ago, and boy were they were right. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 38-7 walloping at Ohio State's hands. One thing working slightly against the Badgers was the run-of-the-mill game of their most targeted running back, RB Jonathan Taylor, who rushed for 52 yards on 20 carries.

Meanwhile, Iowa got themselves on the board against the Northwestern Wildcats, but Northwestern never followed suit. Iowa escaped their match against Northwestern unscathed, winning 20 to nothing. No one had a big game offensively for the Hawkeyes, but they got scores from WR Tyrone Tracy Jr. and RB Mekhi Sargent. One of the most thrilling moments of the game was Tracy Jr.'s 50-yard TD reception in the first quarter. Tracy Jr. ended up with 88 receiving yards, more than he has had in any other game this season.

Iowa's defense was a presence, and it made life painful for QB Aidan Smith and got past Northwestern's offensive line for a total of five sacks for a loss of 17 yards. The heavy lifting was done by DT Daviyon Nixon and DE Joe Evans, who each racked up two sacks.

Iowa's victory lifted them to 6-2 while Wisconsin's defeat dropped them down to 6-2. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Badgers come into the matchup boasting the fewest yards allowed per game in the league at 223.5. As for the Hawkeyes, they rank second in the league when it comes to touchdowns allowed, with only nine on the season. We'll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the matchup.
