3. Iowa Hawkeyes, 8-0 (4-0)
One of the biggest surprises in college football this season has been the Iowa Hawkeyes, who are currently undefeated and continuing to impress throughout the season.
Defense has been the motto for Iowa this season and they have embraced it.
There is talent on the offensive side of the football for them, but they are far from being a dynamic offensive unit. Having a good defense has always been a winning recipe and the Hawkeyes are figuring that out.
Iowa is going to finish as one of the top teams in the Big Ten this season and could very well contend for the conference championship.
They aren’t likely to win the conference, but they are undefeated at this point in the season for a reason.
