West coast bowl game 'keeping in touch' with Iowa ahead of Selection Sunday
Iowa is still awaiting its bowl destination with one west coast bowl keeping tabs on the Hawkeyes.
According to Scott Dochterman with The Athletic, the Holiday Bowl is “keeping in touch” with Iowa over the possibility of an invitation to the Hawkeyes. The bowl executive said it is “very possible” that Iowa winds up in the bowl game.
The Holiday Bowl is played in San Diego, California and is sponsored by the San Diego County Credit Union. It traditionally features a B1G vs Pac-12 slate with Northwestern beating Utah in the game last season.
Holiday exec on Iowa: "We've been keeping in touch, because it's very possible that Iowa is going to be here in San Diego. So naturally we're talking to make sure that our staffs are working together and getting ready for a great trip in the event that Iowa is heading our way."

Iowa has not traveled to California for a bowl game since the Rose Bowl following the 2015 season. Since then, the Hawkeyes have traveled to Florida for the Outback Bowl twice and once to New York for the Pinstripe Bowl.
Where will the Hawkeyes wind up this season? They will likely find out Sunday evening once the College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six slate is filled out.
