IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) _ Iowa has welcomed the nation's top-ranked team into their home stadium before. But the hype surround those games was never this big.

This time the Hawkeyes will have the undivided attention of a national TV audience when they take on Number 1 Ohio State.

The game has been sold out since before the season started and tickets were selling on eBay for as much as $500 today.

But the Hawkeyes also see the game as a legitimate chance to pull of an upset. Iowa enters the game ranked 13th, and coach Kirk Ferentz is calling the game a once in a lifetime chance for his program.

But to do so they'll have to get past a Buckeyes team that hasn't disappointed this year and brings a 4-and-0 record into the game.
