steelcitygator 2 A team that has really shot up the rankings to start the year. I think, while Indiana was a bit lucky last year, they are still a team on the fringes of Top 25. Then ISU is going to finish the year Top 20 imo. The combination of these two was worth more this week than UGA's higher high in Clemson. Like my explanation says though the first few weeks can be very fluid.

bretticus33 3 Iowa has maybe the best overall resume in the country as of now.  Road win over rival, and another win over a team that was ranked.  The defense is looking very legit 
Ch-i-ef 3 Nobody watches Iowa for the offense anyway. They'll barely miss out on September Maryland so their next big challenge will be Penn State in a few weeks. Expect them to idle in the top 5 for a little while at least.

T-Thugs 3 Honestly you could argue the Hawkeyes have the best resume in college football, with 2 quality wins over Indiana and Iowa State. I dont think either win is as impressive as beating Clemson, so for now I have them below Georgia. Tough call.

crownebeach 6 Iowa managed fewer than 3 yards/play, which is just appalling. For fans of Bill C., their postgame win expectancy chart will probably not be all that impressive. With that said, they're capable of being a much better offense than this, and it seemed to me that they turtled up at halftime, because they had two good touchdown drives in the second quarter. They dominated the line of scrimmage despite their peripherals, and so I'm breaking my own rule and ranking the worse per-play team higher in this isolated case.

woakley 10 Most people would have Iowa higher than this, but this is where rankings can get tough. Iowa has two solid wins, but I think that what we've seen is that Indiana and Iowa State are both worse teams than we originally thought. That's not to say Iowa isn't a good team, I just feel that if I think Indiana and Iowa State were worse than initially thought it's hard for me to give them too much credit.
