    Iowa vs. Wisconsin Game

    Fall means football. And this weekend, the Hawkeyes have a huge game against Wisconsin. It's a conference battle and the atmosphere will be electric.

    Even if you can't get tickets to the game, it'll be just as fun to hang out in town. (Iowa City WAS just voted the best college town in the nation). It'll be a fun way to get out while still staying close to home.
