Although the offense struggled at times, the Wisconsin Badgers defense made a statement in their recent 24-13 victory over Rutgers. With the win, the Wisconsin football team remains undefeated in Big Ten play prior to this week’s Iowa vs Wisconsin college football matchup.
For as shaky as the start has been for the Wisconsin football program, they find themselves as the only Big Ten West team still undefeated in conference play. With Iowa being the only team in the Big Ten West division with just one loss, a win would put the Badgers in a fantastic position to win the division already.

Wisconsin Football News | Iowa vs Wisconsin Prediction
Once again, the Wisconsin Badgers did not have a complete performance. At times, the offense was nonexistent and struggled to move the ball. With that being said, they played an unnaturally tough Rutgers team and did just enough to get the win.
This week, the Badgers’ offense will have their toughest test against a stout Iowa Hawkeyes defense. Iowa has given up just 98 points over six games and has looked solid all year. The good news for the Badgers is the Hawkeyes defense hasn’t done a great job forcing turnovers this season. If the Badgers can play the field position game and take care of the rock, they will have a good chance to stay undefeated in conference play.
Iowa Football News | Iowa vs Wisconsin Prediction
The Hawkeyes have been a tough team to get a pulse on this season thanks to their inability to pull away from their competition. Outside of a 41-10 victory over Western Michigan, Iowa hasn’t won a game by more than 10 points. With an offense averaging just over 21 points per game, they’ll need to do better to stand a chance against Wisconsin, which is a big ask with Cade McNamara now out for the season.
The biggest question for Iowa is whether this team can play complimentary football. With the defense struggling to force turnovers, the offense needs to move the ball to help win the field position battle. With the offense struggling to score points, the defense needs to stop opposing teams from moving the sticks. So far, Iowa has been able to hold on and do enough to have just one loss this year. If they struggle again this week for long periods of time, the Badgers might be able to pull away.
