MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Iowa stepped in TCF Bank Stadium last November and lost to a Minnesota team determined to finish a dismal season in strong fashion.
The Hawkeyes are coming back on Saturday, looking to avenge the loss and reclaim the Floyd of Rosedale trophy.
The old bronze pig is about all Minnesota has to be proud of at the moment, other than that sparkling open-air stadium. The Gophers (1-6, 0-3 Big Ten) have lost their first three Big Ten games in coach Jerry Kill’s first season by an average margin of 38 points. So they’d sure like to experience that winning feeling again, especially against one of their biggest rivals, the Hawkeyes (5-2, 2-1).
