Iowa will not get to play its bowl game after completing the eight-game slate in the B1G.

All in all, the Hawkeyes were one of the conference’s most impressive teams, proving to be one of the few teams to complete the eight-game regularly-scheduled slate. Iowa’s Champions Week game against Michigan was canceled due to issues with the Wolverines.
