Iowa-Wisconsin Television Set

Nov. 8, 2004

The Iowa Hawkeyes will close the book on their regular season with a 3:30 p.m. (Iowa time) date against Wisconsin on Saturday, Nov. 20. The game will be televised live by ESPN.

The game is both Seniors Day and Fan Appreciation Day at historic Kinnick Stadium where Iowa has won 17 straight contests.

Iowa’s game against Wisconsin on Nov. 20 is a sellout — the 11th straight at historic Kinnick Stadium for the Hawkeyes.

The Hawkeyes, winners of five in a row and currently alone in third-place in the Big Ten Conference, travel to Minnesota Saturday for the annual battle for Floyd of Rosedale, the bronzed pig awarded to the winner of the football game played between the two schools each year. That game is also slated for ESPN coverage and will kickoff shortly after 11 a.m. (Iowa time)

Iowa will carry a 5-1 league record and a 7-2 overall mark into the Metrodome.

The Iowa-Wisconsin game will be the first where the winner will claim the new “Heartland Trophy.” The outcome of that game could have an impact on this year’s Big Ten title chase. Michigan and Wisconsin are currently unbeaten in league play.
