The Minnesota Gophers and Iowa Hawkeyes meet up in Week 11 at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on the Big Ten Network (BTN). Both programs are part of a four-way tie for first place at the top of the Big Ten West, and a loss would make it extremely unlikely to get back into the mix.
Minnesota (6-3, 4-2 Big Ten) made a surprise appearance in the initial College Football Playoff rankings at No. 20 and followed that up by going scoreless for the first 55 minutes of a 14-6 loss to the Illinois Fighting Illini. Iowa (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten) will look to a new starting quarterback as Alex Padilla replaced Spencer Petras in last week’s win over Northwestern and completed 18 of 28 passes for 172 yards without a touchdown or interception.
If you aren’t around a TV to watch the game on Saturday, you can stream it via Fox Sports or the Fox Sports app. However, keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription with access to the Big Ten Network. If you don’t have a cable login to access to the BTN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, DirecTV Stream, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.
Iowa is a 4.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -190 on the moneyline. That makes Minnesota a +160 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 37.5.
