The Iowa–Wisconsin football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Iowa Hawkeyes football team of the University of Iowa and Wisconsin Badgers football team of the University of Wisconsin. The Heartland Trophy is a brass bull that is presented to the winner of the annual game. Although the rivalry is over one-hundred years old, the trophy is a relatively new addition. It was first presented in 2004 to Iowa, when they defeated Wisconsin 30–7. In 2005, Iowa spoiled the last home game for Wisconsin head coach Barry Alvarez, defeating the Badgers at a rain-soaked Camp Randall Stadium, by a score of 20–10. The Badgers took possession of the trophy for the first time in 2006, defeating Iowa 24–21 in a back-and-forth affair. Wisconsin evened the Heartland Trophy series in 2007, winning another closely contested game 17–13, under the lights at Camp Randall. In 2008, Iowa took the lead in the trophy series, riding a second-half performance to a lopsided 38-16 victory. The Hawkeyes' second-half performance was key again in 2009, as Iowa won the contest 20-10 in Madison. The 2010 game was decided in the final minute, as the Badgers scored a late touchdown in the 31-30 victory at Kinnick Stadium.

With Big Ten expansion, the Wisconsin and Iowa football teams were placed in separate divisions, thus ending their annual rivalry.[1] The teams now play each other four out of every ten years, with the next meeting to take place in 2013 in Iowa City.

The series is likely to resume as a yearly event in 2014. The Big Ten announced in April 2013 it will realign its divisions geographically when Maryland and Rutgers join in 2014, and the tentative plan has Iowa and Wisconsin together in the Western division.

The all-time series is tied at 42-42-2.
