How they got here
Iowa (10-3, 7-2 Big Ten) picked up wins over Iowa State and Penn State. But those big wins fizzled as the season continued, and the Hawkeyes got eviscerated 42-3 in the Big Ten Championship Game which wasn’t as close as the score indicated.
Kentucky (9-3, 5-3 SEC) beat Florida again and rolled Louisville 52-21 in the Governor’s Cup to end the season. The Cats are No. 25 in the latest poll and bring a balanced attack with 225.0 yards passing and 206.1 yards rushing per game.
