Iowa is the highest-ranked of the seven Big Ten teams in the Top 25. The Hawkeyes’ next game is Thursday night at Maryland.
The first NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) rankings of the season were released by the NCAA Monday. Iowa is seventh. Illinois is fourth, and unbeaten Michigan is sixth.
Drake, 12-0 and one of nine unbeaten teams in the country, is 20th in the NET.
