After a devastating home loss to college football powerhouse Central Michigan Chippewas, Iowa will have a chance to get the season back on course, as it faces its oldest rival in the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
The Gophers, suffering through four years of this guy, have found their way, and at 4-0, are one of only three undefeated teams in the Big Ten.
With close victories over UNLV, Western Michigan and Syracuse, as well as a blowout win over FCS New Hampshire, Minnesota hasn't had to overcome a monstrous schedule.
On the other hand, neither has Iowa, and the Hawkeyes are 2-2.
Regardless, the Gophers see Iowa as one more step toward their first bowl-eligible season since 2009.
On the other hand, Iowa, which has been bowl eligible every season since 2001, looks to be on the verge of ending that streak.
