keys for both teams coming out of the half?
Sunday October 3, 2010 1:50 Erik
1:52
Iowa has held the ball in the UW end for a long time, but the Badger defense has been stout. That physcial defending needs to keep up in the second half to preserve the lead. On offense, they've had some good scoring chances, just need to keep that up. Kodee Williams has been making some good runs for the Badgers down the line, I expect to see more of that in the second half.
