Nebraska completes the 2014 regular season on Friday with its traditional Black Friday contest. The Huskers will travel to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes in a Big Ten West Division matchup. The Huskers enter the contest with an 8-3 overall record, including a 4-3 mark in Big Ten Conference play.
Last week's loss to Minnesota dropped Nebraska from both the Associated Press poll and the USA Today Coaches Poll. Iowa comes into the contest tied with Nebraska in the West Division standings at 4-3 in conference play, while owning a 7-4 overall record. The Hawkeyes suffered a 26-24 setback against division leader Wisconsin last Saturday in Iowa City, ending their chances of a berth in the Big Ten Championship Game. The Hawkeyes have a stout defense, limiting opponents to just 331 total yards and 23 points per game.
The schools will once again have the Heroes Trophy on the line in Friday's matchup.
