No. 3: The Big Muddy Brawl (Iowa)

Historical fun fact for the day: Did you know the Missouri River is also referred to as the Big Muddy?

This Heroes Game crap gets tossed out the window for a perfect Big Ten sub-rivalry.

A nod to the body of water that forms the state lines of both teams’ residence, also a reference to smashmouth B1G football and the likelihood it’ll probably be ugly as sin most years.

Of course, there’s the need for a perfect trophy.
