UNI travels to Iowa on Saturday.
CEDAR FALLS, IA (KTIV) -
Mark Farley and the Northern Iowa Panthers nearly did the unthinkable two weeks ago.
Down 19-0 to then No.12 Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium, the Panthers pulled to within 26-21 before their upset bid fell short against the Badgers.
Prior to the college football season kicking off, Yahoo! Sports ranked Camp Randall as the 17th toughest college football venue to play in.
Kinnick Stadium came in at number nine on that list.
But considering what the Panthers have done early in the season, they're more than ready for a rowdy afternoon of football in another Big Ten atmosphere.
"I think it's a big advantage. But, at the same time, Kinnick is a lot different from Camp Randall. They're two different animals," quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen said. "We're going to have to prepare differently for them just like we prepared a certain way for Wisconsin. Playing at Wisconsin will kind of give us a little edge and it won't be so overwhelming when we go into Kinnick."
