University of Iowa
Two Bowl Championship Series wins put the University of Iowa in a good position as an underdog candidate. While they haven’t shown the result just yet, their young and plucky team could be the biggest surprise of this season.
This team has only appeared in the Bowl Championships Series twice, but both times they’ve gone home with a victory. Despite only one Hall of Fame member produced, their team is well managed and high spirited.
University of Oregon
Out of the five times, this team has reached the Championships, they’ve only gone home empty handed twice. While an unbroken winning streak is what they would undoubtedly be hoping for, they’ve still got a good average that hopefully won’t slip further.
