Video: Joel Stave Misses On Crucial 4th Down Throw, Iowa Wins Heartland Trophy

Wisconsin entered the season as Big Ten West favorites, but after this afternoon's game, things in that division have been thrown for a loop. The Iowa Hawkeyes pulled off an upset of the No. 19 Badgers in Madison, winning the Heartland Trophy for the first time since 2009. Wisconsin had a chance to take the lead, but Joel Stave fired incomplete on a 4th & 2, looking for tight end Troy Fumagalli on the play.

He looked for a pass interference call, and there was some contact, but the refs held their flags, and Iowa was able to take a knee and win the game.

Iowa is 5-0 with the win, and a favorable schedule ahead. This year could be a big one for Kirk Ferentz and his Hawkeyes.
