What to watch

The Hawkeyes come home for a big weekend and in a tie for first place in the Big Ten.

The Buckeyes, though, aren't a pushover. They're a tall, physical team that could give the Hawkeyes some size issues.

Iowa has a 30-game home winning streak. The Hawkeyes would like to add to that this weekend.
