Nebraska completes its 2017 season on Friday afternoon at Memorial Stadium when the Huskers play host to Big Ten West rival Iowa. Game time in front of the 361st consecutive sellout in Lincoln is set for 3 p.m. CT, with national television coverage on FS1. The game can also be heard on the IMG Husker Sports Network.
Nebraska comes into the contest with a 4-7 record and a 3-5 mark in Big Ten play, following a 56-44 setback at No. 13 Penn State last Saturday. The Huskers will be looking for their first win over Iowa since an overtime win in Iowa City in 2014.
Iowa heads to Lincoln with a 6-5 overall record, including a 3-5 record in Big Ten Conference action. The Hawkeyes lost to Purdue, 24-15, on Saturday in Iowa City. Iowa has been solid throughout the season with four of its five losses against teams currently in the national rankings. The Hawkeyes feature one of the most opportunistic defenses in the country, forcing a total of 20 turnovers, including four defensive touchdowns.
Nebraska and Iowa will battle for the HyVee Heroes Trophy for the seventh consecutive season. Since Nebraska joined the Big Ten, the schools have each won three games in the series, with the visiting team having won four of the first six meetings as conference opponents.
