IOWA CITY, Iowa – Logic says Minnesota will be geared up in its attempt to knock off rival Iowa. The Hawkeyes come into Saturday’s match-up between the rivals ranked No. 5 in the College Football Playoff poll and are 9-0.
Iowa isn’t without heavy motivation, however. The Hawkeyes remember last year’s battle for the Floyd of Rosedale trophy, which Minnesota won going away, 51-14, in Minneapolis.
“That was embarrassing,” Iowa Sophomore Running Back Akrum Wadley said. “That’s not how we do things around here. We want revenge. We’re hungry. Just like they’re licking their chops to get at us, we’re licking our chops to get back at them.”
