Wisconsin – Iowa Rivalry:
The rivalry between the Badgers and Hawkeyes dates back to 1894, when the two teams first faced each other. Due to their close geographical proximity, the two sides are placed in the same division in the Big Ten, which means that they annually play at least one game against each other.
As of April 2016, the two teams have faced each other eighty-nine times and their head to head stands at 44-43-2, with Wisconsin leading by one game.
In 2004, the teams introduced the Heartland Trophy, which was to be awarded to the winner of the annual game between the two sides. The trophy itself is a brass bull. Iowa won the first Heartland trophy in 2004, while Wisconsin won it for the first time in 2006.
The 2015 game was played at the Camp Randall Stadium, in the Badgers’ back yard. The game was a low scoring tense affair, with Iowa eventually winning 10-6. Prior to this game, Wisconsin had been on a three game winning streak.
The loss last year will give the Badgers an added incentive to win the Heartland Trophy in Iowa’s own backyard. To watch this cracking game live, get your Wisconsin Badgers Iowa City tickets.
