The bowl projection season never really ends.

But, with Iowa becoming bowl eligible two weeks ago against Maryland and the calendar about to flip to November, it’s probably about time to start paying attention to the latest projections.

Our weekly roundup of Iowa predictions focuses on two Florida bowls this week, the Citrus and the Outback. Six of the eight prognosticators below have the Hawkeyes pegged for one of those destinations and four have them taking on Florida.

Iowa (6-2) travels to Purdue (4-4) for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff this Saturday.
