Iowa knocks off No. 3 Michigan on last-second field goal


This Saturday is going to go down as one of the wildest weekends in recent memory, after the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines suffered a last-second loss to Iowa.

Hawkeyes kicker Keith Duncan drilled a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give Iowa the 14-13 win.

As you would expect, the Iowa faithful stormed the field.

While losing to Iowa was disappointing for the Wolverines, what really makes the loss a stunner is that it makes Michigan the third top four team to fall on Saturday. That’s right, three teams currently ranked in the top four — on the way to the College Football Playoff — lost.

Michigan fell to Iowa, No. 4 Washington fell to USC, and No. 2 Clemson was stunned by Pitt, also on a last-second field goal.

This marks the first time in more than 30 years that the No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 teams in the nation all lost on the same day. With their losses, Alabama and Western Michigan are the lone unbeatens in the FBS.

Tomorrow’s AP Top 25 and next week’s College Football Playoff rankings will certainly be interesting.
