Countdown to Iowa at Northwestern

Iowa travels to The Welsh to take on Northwestern at 6:00PM Central on Thursday February 25. The game will be televised on ESPN and radio coverage is on WGN-AM 720 wgnradio.com.

ESPN is televising this game to kill the least amount of airtime while fulfilling its contractual obligations to televise each Big Ten team at least once per season. A nationwide audience has the chance to see Iowa (9-18, 3-11 Big Ten) really embarrass Northwestern (17-10, 6-9) and sweep the season series. For a recap of the previous game at the Carver here are the gory details.

What to expect? We'd like to say NU will come out breathing fire and smoke the Squawkeyes. The spread is nine points so the bookies think this should be a comfortable NU win. We will be disappointed if NU doesn't walk over these chumps and empty the bench by the end of this game
