For the second-straight year, Iowa and Iowa State are both ranked in the college football preseason USA TODAY Amway Coaches Poll.
The Hawkeyes are 23rd and the Cyclones are 25th. Last year was the first time they were in the preseason rankings together.
Iowa is one of six Big Ten teams ranked, behind No. 2 Ohio State, No. 7 Penn State, No. 12 Wisconsin, No. 15 Michigan and No. 18 Minnesota. The Hawkeyes are scheduled to play all of those teams this year other than Michigan.
It’s the 25th time Iowa has been in the preseason poll, and Iowa State’s third.
