On Saturday, the University of Wisconsin football team will face Iowa for the last time before the schools are put in separate divisions when the Big Ten goes to 12 teams next season.

That means the winner of the Heartland Trophy will keep it at least until the 2013 season, the next time they are expected to meet again.

Iowa — one of three teams unbeaten in league games — defeated Michigan on Saturday after getting a bye the week before, which could be an advantage.

"It's a trophy game for us, one of two that exist on our schedule," Bielema said. "One that's very important to our kids.

"For where we are right now, we've gone through a bit of a grind with the four weeks of non-conference, three conference games, now going into our fourth (Big Ten game) before a bye week next week. It's a very unique week of preparation for us."
