MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin's gridiron rivalry with Iowa will be renewed on Nov. 2 following a two-year hiatus. The Big Ten announced on Monday that the game, to be played at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, will start at 11 a.m. CT. It will be televised by either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2, with the network designation being announced next week.
Following the Badgers' dramatic 31-30 win over the Hawkeyes on Oct. 23, 2010, the all-time series between the two teams is tied at 42-42-2. Wisconsin has won two of the last three meetings in Iowa City.
Starting next year, when the Big Ten moves to East and West divisions, Wisconsin and Iowa will meet every year.
The Heartland Trophy was awarded to the winner of the Badgers-Hawkeyes game every season starting in 2004. Since that time, Iowa leads the series 4-3. However, UW currently has possession of the trophy, on the strength of its victory in 2010.
Officials are still awaiting word on a kickoff time for the Rusty Toolbox Game, traditionally played by the teams' managers on the Friday night before the Wisconsin-Iowa game. The Badgers' managers also have possession of the toolbox following their victory in 2010.
