The Iowa Hawkeyes are on the road in the Big Ten to take on league leader Michigan State. Not only have the Hawkeyes lost 13 straight in East Lansing but they are taking on a Spartan team that is 11-3 in the conference race and 21-5 overall.

Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says the Spartans are a difficult team to contain as they run multiple offensive sets and are well coached. The Hawkeyes have to be more concerned about what they need to do to make it competitive. Lickliter says they have to know what Michigan State likes to do and focus on how the game needs to be played to challenge and compete.

Iowa is 4-10 in the Big Ten and 14-13 overall.
