If you'll notice, the can't miss game of the week goes down in Iowa City this weekend, when the fifth ranked Spartans invade Kinnick Stadium at 3:30PM ET on Saturday to square off with the eighteenth ranked Hawkeyes. It is the only Big Ten game slated for the afternoon time-slot and everyone will want to be tuning in to watch this power football slugfest that has major Conference Championship-- and potential National Championship-- implications. No matter who your team is in this conference, you won't want to miss this epic match-up!
