Why the Iowa Hawkeyes could win the College Football Playoff

It is fairly safe to say that the Iowa Hawkeyes are just now getting the amount of respect that an undefeated Power 5 team should be receiving at this point of the season. The Hawkeyes rank eighth in both the AP Top 25 and coaches poll and were ninth in the initial College Football Playoff rankings. On Tuesday night, we found out that the Hawkeyes had jumped to No. 5 in the CFP rankings.
