What TV channel is Iowa football vs. Wisconsin? How to watch and stream Hawkeyes' game against Badgers
After a week off from competition, No. 10 Iowa football hits the road to face Wisconsin on Saturday.
The battle for the Heartland Trophy kicks off at 11:07 a.m. CT in Madison, Wisconsin. Fans can watch the game on ESPN or stream on the Watch ESPN app.
After its recent bye week, Iowa (6-1, 3-1 in the Big Ten) enters Saturday's contest hoping to bounce back from a 24-7 loss to Purdue on Oct. 16. In that game, Iowa's defense failed to stop anything that went David Bell's way; the Boilermaker receiver torched the Hawkeye defense for 240 yards and a touchdown on 11 catches. Bell finished with just 31 yards fewer than the entire Hawkeye offense, which failed to put up any points in the game's final two quarters.
Meanwhile, after a 1-3 start, the Badgers (4-3, 2-2 in the Big Ten) have quietly won three consecutive games. Most recently, Wisconsin took down Purdue in a convincing 30-13 win on Oct. 23. The Badgers ran the ball with ease on the Boilermakers, running for 290 yards. Tailbacks Chez Mellusi and Braelon Allen ran for 149 and 140 yards, respectively, and combined for three touchdowns.
Here's how Iowa fans can watch Saturday's game against Wisconsin.
