Plenty of bowl love for Iowa; Hawkeyes visit DE John Waggoner

Iowa football is always the main topic in Iowa Breakfast Club, Land of 10’s daily Hawkeyes notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Hawkeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Iowa football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Bowl love, part I

The Pinstripe Bowl would love to land Iowa. Executive director Mark Holtzman used the word ‘privileged’ when talking with Land of 10. There is a real good chance the Hawkeyes end up in New York. If that happens, hopefully Holtzman’s talk of 40 or 50 degree weather accompanies the Hawkeyes to the bowl.

Bowl love, part II

The Pinstripe Bowl isn’t the only one talking up Iowa. The Holiday Bowl did the same to Land of 10. The Holiday Bowl in San Diego is probably a long shot for the Hawkeyes this bowl season.

Wanting some bowl love

Iowa fans want to head to the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn. They’ve made their intentions pretty well-known. Chad Leistikow, of the Des Moines Register, explains what must happen for it to become a reality.

Trying to seal the deal

Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz visited the team’s top recruiting priority, 4-star defensive end John Waggoner, on Wednesday. Matthew Bain, of the Des Moines Register, has all the details.

Recruits to know

Who are the prime recruiting targets for Iowa in the Class of 2018? Land of 10 discusses five players to keep an eye on.

Breaking down the bowls
