Iowa is 12-0 this season, and yet America still has its doubts. https://t.co/NZPKKJmFf5— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) November 28, 2015
One of the more intriguing questions as we enter conference championship games is whether or not the 12-0 Iowa Hawkeyes really have earned a spot in the College Football Playoff. It’s true that the team is 12-0, after their defeat of Nebraska, but as it stands right now, there are several more teams that have lost a game that are more worthy of a spot in that playoff. While a win over Michigan State would strengthen Iowa’s case immensely, as it stands now, I don’t really think they have earned that playoff spot. Let’s talk about why.
