Week 11 Recap: Golden Rodents

We are sorry Floyd.

There really is no other way to describe it, with what we had on the line, this has to be the worse loss of the Ferentz era.  And so, we leave it in the past, if you really want to rehash it there are plenty of places where you can read the bloody details.  Floyd, when you finally travel to Iowa City next fall (that was 4 out of 5 years we have played @ the Rodents), we will have payback, and in Iowa City you will stay.

Week 12 Preview: Fighting Illini

But as bad as that game was - in all areas, offense, defense, and special teams, the season is not over.  There is still much to play for.  

Take a look at the Big Ten West standings above - the 3rd column, the division standings.  

The Rodents, Badgers, and Hawkeyes all have 1 division loss.
