The Badger of Honor team predicts how Wisconsin Football will do against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Wisconsin football plays its toughest game of the young season this weekend against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Some of the folks you read here at Badger of Honor are a bit more optimistic than the others about how the game will unfold.

Zac Pestine (@Zac_Pestine): Wisconsin has not lived up to its lofty expectations thus far. But it will come hungry when facing its rival Iowa under the lights. Look for a statement win, even against a characteristically gritty Iowa team. Wisconsin 31, Iowa 13

Sam Land (@samland23): Last week’s loss to BYU was devastating, but I think it has served as a useful wake-up call for Wisconsin. Expect the Badgers to come to Iowa City ready to play and motivated to prove to the nation that they are still a Playoff contender. The home field advantage the Hawkeyes enjoy at Kinnick is not to be taken lightly, but ultimately Wisconsin emerges victorious in a nail-biter. Wisconsin 24, Iowa 21

Joe Orlofski (@joeorlofski): Badger fans are still mourning the loss to BYU last week. It doesn’t get any easier for Wisconsin this week as it travels to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes at night. The Badgers’ offensive line and defense look to rebound and show the world why they were so hyped up this season. Unfortunately, I’ll be the guy to say Wisconsin falls in a close one. Wisconsin 21, Iowa 24

Christian Borman (@christianborman): Wisconsin looks to rebound after a disappointing loss against BYU. Starting fast has been a challenge for the Badgers this year and it will be tough to do on the road in Kinnick in primetime. Jonathon Taylor will kickstart the offense and lead Wisconsin to a much-needed win against a rival. The defense struggles a bit but holds on in the end. Wisconsin 24, Iowa 23

Steven Tondi (@TondisMaximus21): Wisconsin looks to bounce back after a tough loss at home last week. There is no time to dwell on the BYU game when a trip to Iowa City comes next. The defense buckles down and turns in an impressive performance led by T.J. Edwards. Alex Hornibrook and the offensive line clean up their mistakes and make enough plays to steal a victory on the road. Wisconsin 21, Iowa 17

Tanner Nestle (@NestleIsTheName): Wisconsin has a lot to prove to itself, the fans, and the country this weekend. People are writing the Badgers off in a season that had national championship aspirations. Those goals are still up in the air, but this weekend’s game is most important and very winnable. Wisconsin is more talented than Iowa and doesn’t have any glaring weaknesses that Iowa is set to exploit.

If Wisconsin proves to have turned a new leaf, it should win this game comfortably. Even if the Badgers still struggle with the hostile road environment, it can keep this one close and pull out the win. But I like the Badgers to own the line of scrimmage. Wisconsin 27, Iowa 17
