Iowa’s 55-24 demolition of then-No. 6 Ohio State threw a wrench into the Big Ten’s College Football Playoff chances, a performance that had many across the country thinking the Hawkeyes could derail unbeaten Wisconsin’s climb up the rankings.

And then, 66 yards of total offense happened.

Iowa (6-4, 3-4), though, closes the season with Purdue and Nebraska — both 4-6 teams fighting to keep their bowl hopes alive this week — thus will be favored to get to 8-4.

Prognosticators this week see trips to the Foster Farms Bowl, Music City Bowl and Pinstripe Bowl as possibilities.
