The Hawkeyes stayed the course in both national college football polls after a 38-14 victory over Miami (Ohio).
Iowa remained No. 19 in the coaches poll and No. 20 in the Associated Press Top 25. The Hawkeyes’ opponent in just under two weeks — Iowa State — dropped into a tie for No. 25 in the AP poll and out of the coaches poll after a 3OT win over Northern Iowa.
The Hawkeyes received 351 points from the AP’s panel of 62 sports writers and broadcasters, up from 330 in the preseason.
Although Northwestern dropped out of both polls after a loss to Stanford, Iowa still has plenty of ranked opponents ahead. Iowa plays No. 7 Michigan at the Big House on October 5, with No. 15 Penn State (October 12), No. 17 Wisconsin (November 9) and No. 25 Nebraska (November 29) also on the schedule.
Iowa travels to Iowa State on September 24.
Clemson, the defending national champion, remained at No. 1 in both polls, with Ohio State at No. 5 the top team from the Big Ten.
