3. Iowa Hawkeyes
I know, I know. “The Hawkeyes haven’t played anybody.”
Please, continue to tell me that this team shouldn’t be this high in the rankings. Despite their conference schedule not working in their favor, they are STILL undefeated which I can tell you nobody would have expected, weak schedule or not.
The Hawkeyes have one of the best run defenses in the country and now that Michigan State controls their own destiny and not Ohio State, Kirk Ferentz’s team could be riding a big high into the Orange or Cotton Bowl in a few weeks.
