Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sport

In the two teams' first matchup since 2010, the Heartland Trophy was on the line, but the Badgers overcame a stagnant running attack and penalties galore to retain the hog and pull ahead in the all-time series with Iowa, 43-42-2.

James White paced Wisconsin on the ground, rushing for 132 yards and two touchdowns. The defense was in bend-but-don't break mode, holding the Hawkeyes to just three field goals and limiting their offense to under 300 total yards.
