Last season -- the Heartland trophy left with the Wisconsin Badgers for the third straight time -- the goal for these Hawkeyes -- Get it back

Iowa Quarterback C.J. Beathard; "We haven't had that trophy in a long time and we've just got to go out there and play our best and hopefully come out with a trophy with the win."

Jordan Canzeri, Iowa Tailback: "It is in our minds that we are going out every game to win, but yes, we want every single trophy in our building at the end of the year."

of course this weekend the Hawkeyes will leave the friendly confines of Kinnick Stadium and head to a hostile Camp Randall Stadium in Madison for the first time in 6 years. Although Kirk Ferentz said his team did get pretty good practice at dealing with a situation like that in week number 2 at Iowa State.

Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz: "That training's a starting point. I'm glad we have a road game, a tough road game under our belts, but it really gets down to concentration, really being focused on what's going on on the field."

And on the field the Hawkeye offense will be looking to keep things rolling after racking up 62 points in their win over North Texas -- the most by an Iowa team in 13 years --

but on Saturday -- they'll face a Badger defense that's given up just 3 total points in the last 3 games --

"We know it's going to be a grind. It's going to be a long game. We're not going to score every drive, but we've got to continue to push and continue to keep working."

and they hope that work leads to a win in a hostile environment -- with a trophy on the line -- oh yeah -- and it also happens to be the conference opener --

"It's finally time, It's finally here. Big Ten play and we've been waiting."
