Its another big road game as Iowa will face Northwestern

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery says avoiding back-to-back losses is a hallmark of a championship team.

The Hawkeyes will try to sidestep a potential losing streak Saturday against a Northwestern team on a bit of a roll.

No. 10 Iowa (15-4, 4-2 Big Ten) heads back out on the road to face a Wildcats team it pounded 95-67 in Iowa City on Jan.9.

Northwestern (10-10, 3-4) has won three of four since then, while the Hawkeyes are coming off an eight-point loss at 21st-ranked Michigan.
