The anticipation for the upcoming college football season is palpable, especially in Iowa, where the Hawkeyes are gearing up for another promising year. The team is set to commence their summer program soon, aiming to build on their recent success. Over the past four full seasons, Iowa has recorded three double-digit win seasons, demonstrating consistent performance and competitiveness.

USA Today’s pre-summer rankings, updated by Paul Myerberg, place Iowa among the elite in the Big Ten Conference. The Hawkeyes are one of seven teams from the Big Ten featured in the top 25 of Myerberg’s Re-Rank. The list includes:

1. **No. 2 Ohio State** – A perennial powerhouse with a strong track record.
2. **No. 4 Oregon** – Known for their high-octane offense and robust recruiting.
3. **No. 10 Penn State** – Consistently a strong contender in the conference.
4. **No. 14 Michigan** – Boasting a storied football tradition and recent resurgence.
5. **No. 17 USC** – Under new leadership and aiming for a comeback.
6. **No. 25 Nebraska** – Looking to re-establish itself as a force in college football.

Iowa’s inclusion in this ranking underscores the program’s potential and the high expectations for the upcoming season. The focus for the Hawkeyes will be on enhancing their offensive capabilities to complement their traditionally strong defense, with hopes of making a significant impact in the Big Ten and beyond.
