Time to battle for a pig.

Iowa and Minnesota meet for the 105th time on Saturday, Nov. 13, for a chance to hoist the Floyd of Rosedale trophy. The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network and fans can also stream the action on the FOX Sports app.

The Hawkeyes (7-2, 4-2 in the Big Ten) survived a late comeback from Northwestern to bounce back after a rough two-game losing streak. Iowa quarterback Alex Padilla is slated to make the first start in his career on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, the Gophers (6-3, 4-2 in the Big Ten) saw their four-game winning streak fall on Saturday, as Minnesota lost 14-6 at home to Illinois. Gopher quarterback Tanner Morgan threw for 180 yards, no touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. Ky Thomas led the ground game with 60 yards.

A brief history on Iowa-Minnesota

What was once a lopsided rivalry in the early 1900s, the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale has favored Iowa as of late. The Hawkeyes have won the last six meetings, including a 35-7 victory in 2020.

Minnesota holds a 62-50-2 all-time series lead over Iowa, though. After losing their first two games to the Gophers after Kirk Ferentz took over as head coach, the Hawkeyes have won 16 of the past 20 meetings.
