Iowa among three B1G teams in top six of College Football Playoff poll
Iowa is still undefeated, and still in control of its own playoff destiny.
Following the program’s first 12-0 regular season in school history, the Hawkeyes came in at No. 4 in the latest College Football Playoff poll. They’ll have a chance to lock up a top-four spot in the College Football Playoff poll with a win against Michigan State in the B1G Championship on Saturday night in Indianapolis.
The Hawkeyes were one of three B1G teams that still could have a shot at the College Football Playoff. Michigan State is obviously in the same position as Iowa at No. 5 while No. 6 Ohio State needs upsets in conference championships to sneak into the field.
Heading into Saturday, Iowa is a four-point underdog. The matchup against Michigan State will mark the first time Kirk Ferentz’s squad will take on a top-10 team.
Even with a loss, the Hawkeyes could very easily be looking at a New Year’s Six bowl.
