Iowa 4th in BCS
On Oct. 24, the Iowa Hawkeyes defeated Michigan State by two points. On Sunday, they climbed two spots in the latest BCS standings.
Although the Hawkeyes remain seventh in the AP poll and eighth in the coaches’ poll, Iowa is now ranked No. 4 in the BCS, which eclipses the previous high of No. 5 in the BCS set by the 2002 squad.
The Hawkeyes are 8-0 for the first time in school history after a 15-13 win over Michigan State that came on the game’s final play. It was the fourth victory this season Iowa has attained by three points or fewer, and the first nail-biter to take place away from Kinnick Stadium.
Florida sits atop the BCS standings, Alabama is second, and Texas is third. All three, like the Hawkeyes, are unbeaten. USC rounds out this week’s top five.
Iowa’s next game is on Saturday at Kinnick Stadium against Indiana. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. The game will be televised by ESPN.
