Hawks confident against heavily-favored Wisconsin

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A Big Ten West division championship - and a berth in the conference title game -- are still on the table when the Iowa Hawkeyes play host to 14th-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday.

The Hawkeyes enter the match-up with the Badgers as 10-point underdogs. But despite the fact there have been a few bumps in the road, Iowa comes into the homestretch of the season in control of their own destiny -- and the Hawks believe they are capable of getting the job done.

"We are very excited," Kevonte Martin-Manley said. "It's been on our minds for a long time now. We put in a lot of work and effort and have gone through a lot of adversity during the season, and for us to be in this position, we need to capitalize on this opportunity."

"We are just coming to play," Carl Davis said. "We don't care what people think. We look forward to this great task and ready to compete to the best of our ability."

Iowa will look to regain the Heartland Trophy, won last year by the Badgers.
