The Iowa Hawkeyes and Northwestern Wildcats – two teams sporting 3-2 records in Big Ten Conference play and 5-3 marks overall in 2005 – square off today inside Dyche Stadium at 11 a.m. The winner will remain in the hunt for the league’s 2005 championship and become bowl-eligible.

Gary Dolphin, the radio voice of the Iowa Hawkeyes, offers his unique perspective on this match-up in his weekly installment of “The View from the Press Box,” available exclusively inside Hawkeye All-Access.

As always, fans of the Iowa Hawkeye can listen to Gary, Ed Podolak and Rob Brooks call the game for the Hawkeye Radio Network. They’ll be joined briefly pre-game and post-game by Kirk Ferentz. That broadcast is also available inside Hawkeye All-Access.

The game is the first of three November games for the Hawkeyes. Iowa has enjoyed tremendous success in the last month of the regular season the last three years, chalking up nine wins in 10 games en route to a pair of Big Ten titles.

Iowa travels to Madison, Wis., for a 2:30 p.m. date with Wisconsin next week before closing the regular season Nov. 19 with a home game inside historic Kinnick Stadium against Minnesota.

The winner of the Iowa-Wisconsin game will claim ownership of the “Heartland Trophy.” The victor of the Iowa-Minnesota game gains possession of the bronze pig, “Floyd of Rosedale.” Both trophies are currently on display inside the Hayden Fry Football Complex on the UI campus.
