No Bull - Wisconsin Tops Iowa 17-9 In B1G West Elimination Game (10/22/16)
It was pretty much exactly what fans have come to expect in this Heartland Trophy series: another low-scoring slobber-knocker. And once again, the visiting team won. Whichever team lost this game, its chance to play in the Big Ten Championship Game was going to be extinguished. To make matters worse for Iowa, it lost its first rivalry trophy in two years.
Iowa’s Defense played a very good game and for the most part held a Badgers potent running attack in check. However Wisconsin’s Redshirt Freshman Quarterback Alex Hornibrook picked apart Iowa’s pass defense on enough crucial downs to make the difference. Time of Possession and Total Offense were heavily weighted in Wisconsin’s favor - and the Badgers were very successful on 3rd Down conversions as well. Despite all of that, if Iowa’s Offense hadn’t been so completely inept the Hawkeyes still could have won this game.
Wisconsin missed two field goals and fumbled inside Iowa’s five yard line (the latter recovered in the end zone by Desmond King). Yet the Hawkeyes couldn’t take advantage of those miscues. The Badgers came into this game giving up an average of 15.2 points per game - yet Iowa could only generate 9 points on three field goals. The last time the Hawkeyes failed to score a single touchdown in a game was in 2013 - also against Wisconsin.
Wisconsin’s Defense held the Hawkeyes running game completely in check. Iowa’s RB Duo of Akrum Wadley and LeShun Daniels combined for just 79 yards on 20 carries. Quarterback C.J. Beathard missed some key throws and was also plagued by receivers who failed to make snag what appeared to be catchable passes. Beathard is supposedly healthy but he’s definitely not been the same confident QB he was last year.
Iowa was also hit by key penalties again today - also a season—long problem - while Wisconsin played the entire game without a flag. The Hawkeyes also suffered from poor tackling: from its safeties, which has been a season-long issue, but also from the likes of Desmond King and Josey Jewell.
There was only one turnover in this contest - Wisconsin’s fumble into the end zone that was recovered for a touchback by Iowa.
10th-ranked Wisconsin now leads 6-5 in games played for the Heartland Trophy and has won four of the last five games vs. the Hawkeyes.
Iowa (5-3, 3-2) goes into its bye week before travelling to Penn State on November 5th - and is now just 2-3 in games played at this year at Kinnick Stadium. Wisconsin (5-2, 2-2) returns to Madison to host Nebraska in what will likely be another Big Ten West elimination game.
