ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg keeps the Hawkeyes at #2 in his Big Ten Power Rankings this week, behind only Ohio State:
2. Iowa (5-0, 2-0) -- A letdown against Arkansas State wasn't a huge surprise, though Iowa actually started strong before a shaky second half.The Hawkeyes fell to 9th in Jeff Sagarin's latest college football ratings. Iowa is #3 in his "ELO-CHESS" ratings which are used as part of the BCS formula, the Hawkeyes were #1 in "ELO-CHESS" last week.
Speaking of Sagarin, ESPN released the ESPN/Sagarin All-Time Ratings for college basketball, and Iowa is ranked as the 10th best program in college basketball history (from 1937-current). The ratings are also broken down by decade. And the only decade which Iowa isn't ranked in the Top 40? The 2000s.
