We can debate BR-14 Iowa‘s inclusion among the top teams in the nation but it doesn’t matter. If the Hawkeyes defeat BR-9 Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday, they will secure a spot in the College Football Playoff. Plain and simple.
Their regular season wasn’t always pretty and they struggled mightily against average and poor teams. However, wins against BR-40 Northwestern and BR-31 Wisconsin have adequately built up their résumé enough to warrant inclusion in the playoff discussion.
In reaching 12-0 for the first time in school history, they have faced loads of critics, including Fox Sports personality Colin Cowherd. One Iowa fan wanted to celebrate both the improbable undefeated regular season and mock Cowherd, prompting them to create an awesome ‘Back in Black’ hype video for the 2015 season.
