For the second game in a row, the Iowa offense failed to do much of anything, and again they lost to a Big Ten West opponent. This time to Wisconsin 27-7, and losing their first trophy in the last six trophy games. They now sit at fourth in the Big Ten West. Their streak of 19 straight games of allowing less than 25 points is also over.
The offense was only able to produce 156 total yards and turned the ball over three times. The defense was put in some tough spots, but was able to get a couple stops. Eventually the Badgers were able to push across a couple scores and the Hawkeye offense failed to convert a crucial 4th and short. After that, the result was pretty much a done deal.

Compared to where they were even two weeks ago, bowl projections are ice cold now. At this point, a New Year’s Six bid seems unlikely, so where could the Hawkeyes end up? CBS Sports has them in the Citrus Bowl against Texas A&M, College Football News and Athlon Sports both predict a Music City Bowl, with the former matching them up with Tennessee and the latter with Arkansas. Though one person is still optimistic for the Hawkeyes, as Action Network’s Brett McMurphy says it’s Glendale for Iowa in the Fiesta Bowl against Cincinnati.
