While the Huskers own a 3-1 advantage over the Hawkeyes in the four seasons the two have met as Big Ten conference foes, Friday marks the first time Iowa enters the game as the higher-ranked team.
This matchup began long before the initial Heroes Game, though, the two teams first faced off in 1891. Local 5's Jordan Furbee has more on this historic, border rivalry.
The Heroes Game airs on ABC Local 5 WOI-DT at 2:30 p.m. Friday.
