TCF Bank Stadium

The Iowa Hawkeyes travel to Minnesota on Saturday afternoon to take on the Golden Gophers in a matchup with implications for both teams' playoff hopes in the tough Big Ten West. The 6-2 Hawkeyes are coming off a 48-7 beating of Northwestern as three-point favorites that lifted them to 3-1 in conference play, tied with Minnesota and just a half game back of Nebraska. The win was the fourth SU and ATS in Iowa's last five, improving them to 6-2 overall.

The Golden Gophers are coming off a bye in Week 10 following a 28-24 loss to Illinois the previous week which ended a four-game SU winning streak. While Minny is undefeated SU at home this season, they have provided bettors with mixed results, going 3-2 ATS on home turf and 2-3 ATS as favorites. The Golden Gophers are also a worrisome 3-10 SU in their last 13 against Iowa, including a 23-7 home loss to the Hawkeyes last season.
