Coaches who might cost too much to fire

Sometimes, nothing can save a coach from being fired. But other times, a buyout of millions or tens of millions of dollars might just buy a coach a little extra time.

Wisconsin has run well against Iowa

Not many teams run the ball well against Iowa, but three Wisconsin running backs have rushed for at least 100 yards and a TD in a single game against the Hawkeyes over the past five years.

Wisconsin escapes with a 17-9 victory against Iowa to take back the Heartland Trophy and set up a huge game next week against Nebraska. Badgers running back Corey Clement was a workhorse today, carrying 35 times for 134 yards with a touchdown. He overcame a goal line fumble late in the first half and scored in the second half to give Wisconsin a 14-6 lead. Iowa's offense couldn't get much rolling against a stellar Badgers defense, which allowed only 236 yards of total offense.

Wisconsin takes a 7-6 lead against Iowa into halftime, but the Badgers blew a golden opportunity when tailback Corey Clement fumbled at the goal line in the final minute. Wisconsin QB Bart Houston entered the game for one series, apparently as part of a pre-planned package, and led the only touchdown drive. Houston's 17-yard touchdown pass to tight end Troy Fumagalli has been the difference. Iowa has only 137 yards of total offense but is hanging tough.

Watch: No. 10 Wisconsin at Iowa

Wisconsin tries to take back the Heartland Trophy after a 10-6 loss last season. Entering the 90th game between the schools, the Badgers hold a 44-43-2 edge in the series. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

No. 10 Wisconsin and Iowa meet at Kinnick Stadium today in a matchup that could serve as an elimination game from Big Ten West title contention. Wisconsin, 1-2 in the league, likely must win its final six regular season games and hope undefeated Nebraska loses a second game. Iowa, meanwhile, can't afford another conference loss after suffering a 38-31 setback against Northwestern. As usual, a lot will be at stake in the seemingly wide open West.

FPI projections for Week 8's best games

The analytics suggest undefeated teams such as Ohio State, Alabama and West Virginia will be fine on Saturday, but conference matchups at this stage of the season can produce strange results.

The upset-makers who will shake up Week 8

Wisconsin gave everything it had in last week's loss to Ohio State. Expect the Badgers' beleaguered defense to succumb to an Iowa team with a point to prove -- and a hot RB in Akrum Wadley.
