The Iowa Hawkeyes have been the biggest surprise in college football this season.
Currently undefeated, the Hawkeyes have an opportunity to solidify their spot in the second annual College Football Playoff by upending the Michigan State Spartans in the Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis this Saturday.
As one of the final four teams, Iowa would be just two wins away from a perfect season and national championship win.
However, that national title would come at a big cost for the university.
According to USA Today‘s Steve Berkowitz, winning the national championship would mean Hawkeyes head coach Kirk Ferentz would receive a $1.85 million bonus.
Ferentz has to love that.

Of course, Iowa would be more than okay with paying out that sum if it meant a national championship.
So, if the Hawkeyes are able to run the table, it’s going to be great for everyone who is involved.
