Tomorrow on the field in Evanston, Ill., No. 20 Northwestern will host No. 17 Iowa in a huge matchup in the Big 10.

What's unique about that matchup and why should people in the Capital Region care?

Well: Northwestern has a RB who is a Shenendehowa graduate (Corey Acker) and Iowa features a running back who is a Troy High School grad (Jordan Canzeri).

Acker joined us today to talk about the big matchup, the keys to the game and more.

Northwestern is coming off its first loss of the season, a 38-0 loss against Michigan. We asked him how good the new-look Wolverines really looked and we asked him how the Wildcats can rebound this week.

Furthermore, we asked him about Canzeri, and how cool it is to see another Section II product in the Big 10.

Acker and Canzeri met in high school -- with Canzeri getting the edge. Acker said he's hoping for a different result this time around.
