The Iowa Hawkeyes and Kentucky Wildcats hope to cap off strong seasons with a Citrus Bowl victory to ring in the new year. The Hawkeyes had a magical start to the season before succumbing to Purdue, while the Wildcats went largely under the radar in the SEC to produce a spike year for Mark Stoops.

Iowa’s formula with running the ball and strong defensive play worked well in certain games but failed to deliver the big-time results against top teams. A 10-win season is nothing to brush off in Iowa City, although many hoped this would be the year Kirk Ferentz broke through in the Big Ten. A Citrus Bowl victory would cap off the year well.

Will Levis and Chris Rodriguez Jr. formed a dynamic 1-2 punch for Kentucky this season, which ran through the SEC East outside of Georgia. Stoops was a candidate for head coaching openings but has found a way to achieve strong results at a program known for basketball. Deliver a few campaigns like this every now and then and people will forget the down years.
