IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Iowa football team did not pick up any votes in the inaugural 2017 Associated Press rankings, which were released Monday.
The Hawkeyes ended the 2016 season unranked after climbing as high as 10th in the USA Today/Coaches poll and 13th by the Associated Press. Iowa returned to the AP rankings at No. 25 after blasting Nebraska 40-10 in the season finale. The Hawkeyes fell out after a 30-3 loss to Florida in the Outback Bowl.
Previous rankings (AP/Coaches): NR/NR
New rankings (AP/Coaches): NR/NR
What it means: Not much. Iowa received votes in both polls, which shows it’s not totally forgotten. But the Hawkeyes might need to be 4-0 with a win against Penn State to crack the rankings this year. Iowa was 5-0 in 2015 before it entered the poll.
What’s next: Iowa plays host to Wyoming on Sept. 2 (11 a.m. CT, BTN).
