Iowa football's quest for a Big Ten West title is still alive. A win against Illinois would make that even more of a possibility.

The Hawkeyes host the Illini on Saturday, Nov. 20, in a 1 p.m. CT contest. Fans can watch the game on TV on FS1 or stream the game through the FOX Sports app.

For Iowa (8-2, 5-2 in the Big Ten), the Hawkeyes enter Saturday's game following a 27-22 win over Minnesota. Quarterback Alex Padilla made the most of his first career start, throwing for 206 yards and two touchdowns while running for another. Minnesota added a 68-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to make things interesting, but Iowa's defense held on for its seventh consecutive win in the Floyd of Rosedale rivalry.

Illinois (4-6, 3-4 in the Big Ten) enjoyed a bye week during Iowa's victory over Minnesota. The Illini last played on Nov. 6, taking down the Gophers 14-6. Running back Chase Brown had himself a day, rushing for 147 yards, but that wasn't even his best performance of the season; Brown has run for more than 200 yards in a single game twice this year.
