The Iowa Hawkeyes finished the regular season 10-2 and will play Georgia Tech in the FedEx Orange Bowl on January 5th at Land Shark Stadium. 

Iowa has dealt with so many injuries this year and none bigger than Ricky Stanzi when he was knocked out of the game against Northwestern which Iowa suffered its first loss of the season in that game. Eight of ten Iowa wins, they have had to come from behind. 

I think Iowa is going to need to play good defense against the option which is the offense Georgia Tech likes to run. The offense is going to have to not turn the ball over. 

Iowa has proven that they just win whether it is pretty or ugly. This should be a good game and go Hawkeyes!!!!!!!!!!!
