The Iowa Hawkeyes went into the Big Ten title game undefeated at 12-0. They would finish the season with two straight losses but with a West Division title. The 2016 season approaches and with it comes high expectations in a division that should be easily winnable for the Hawkeyes. CJ Beathard returns under center and has the dangerous Desmond King returning kicks along with LeShun Daniels at running back. Josey Jewell has become a star at linebacker to lead a solid defense. They will be a key game at home against Michigan in November that could be the difference between another undefeated season and having a loss. Those two teams could end up playing again in the conference title game if all goes according to plan.
