Saturday's trip to Iowa City is a critical one for the Spartans if they are going to win the Big Ten Legends Division. The Spartans currently lead the division by one game over Michigan, Nebraska, and Iowa, but they cannot afford a loss tot he Hawkeyes. A victory by Iowa would be damaging, as Nebraska already owns the tiebreaker over the Spartans and Iowa would gain the tiebreaker as well with the win. The Hawkeyes are playing well at home, as evidenced by last week's upset of Michigan.
