The Hawkeyes lost to the Wisconsin Badgers in another Midwestern rivalry game, one that critics had originally picked Iowa to win. What added insult to injury was the red pompoms Iowa fans were using, making the stadium look like a Badger pep rally. But Saturday started off with an Iowa loss and continued with Iowa State. The Cyclones lost dramatically to Kansas State in a near shut-out.
The Panthers lost their fifth straight game as well and to top matters off, just days after Halloween, Christmas Carols are already on the radio and decorations are already out in full force at stores.
