The annual Battle for the Heroes Trophy between the Iowa Hawkeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers ranks among the best games in the Big Ten Conference every season. This rivalry game was first played way back in 1891 and has been played in a several stretches since that time. The most recent started when the Cornhuskers joined the same conference as the Hawkeyes in 2011. A short 300 miles separates the stadiums in Lincoln, Nebraska and Iowa City, Iowa - so expect to see a lot of fans make the trip whenever their team is playing Memorial Stadium or Kinnick Stadium. Nebraska holds an edge in wins in the overall series history, but these games are competitive every season so if you attend the 2023 game expect to see a great one.
