Stream, injury report, broadcast info for Saturday

Iowa Football faces its biggest game of the season Saturday in Minnesota. The stakes in the fight for Floyd are extremely high this year. The Hawkeyes are currently in a four-way tie for first place in the Big Ten West Division, sharing a spot with their upcoming opponents.

The Golden Gophers are 7-3, with a 4-3 conference record after their last 31-3 win over Northwestern. This game will be crucial in the race for the division title.

Iowa goes into the game on a hot streak, winning the last three matchups. They’re in the middle of the Division’s chase, although they didn’t feel like it a few weeks ago. Looking more like the team promised before the season, they defeated both Purdue and Wisconsin by more than two points.

Minnesota also come Saturday on a three-game winning streak, fresh wins over Rutgers, Nebraska and Northwestern. Facing a similar situation to Iowa, they overcame a midseason slip to put their name back in the West Division hat.

Gophers coach PJ Fleck is looking to finally change his fortunes against Kirk Ferentz and finally get his first win against Iowa. He is currently 0-5 against Ferentz, the Gophers themselves are winless in their last seven matchups.

It’s going to be a cold, breezy affair in Minneapolis. Temperatures will hover around the low tens, with wind speeds expected to reach up to 17mph. This is the epitome of Big Ten postseason football weather. The Gophers are currently 5-1 on the season at home.

This is how fans can watch and follow the game against Wisconsin.
