Hawkeyes’ rankings reception tumbles following week 1

Not that it has a direct impact on the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series, but Iowa has seen its national standing shaken up by the Hawkeyes’ somewhat disappointing 7-3 season-opening win over South Dakota State.

Here’s a look at how Iowa’s national perception moved across the board in a number of rankings nationally.

Aug. 8 USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll: No. 26

Obviously, the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll stops ranking teams after the top 25. With that said, if the poll was to keep ranking teams inside the receiving votes category, then Iowa was the highest-rated team in the receiving votes category in the preseason Coaches Poll.

The Hawkeyes debuted with 248 points in the receiving votes section. After the win over the Jackrabbits, that figure dipped dramatically to 44 points in the receiving votes category.

Sept. 6 Associated Press Poll: Unranked, not receiving votes

Similar to the Coaches Poll, the Iowa Hawkeyes were the first team on the outside looking in for the preseason Associated Press Poll. Now, Iowa’s 163 points in the receiving votes category are nowhere to be found.

Preseason CBS Sports 131: No. 28

Among Big Ten teams, Iowa didn’t have the largest drop from the CBS Sports 131 preseason rankings to the post week one rankings. That honor is reserved for our Nebraska friends who saw their Cornhuskers plummet 30 spots. The Hawkeyes had their own eight-spot drop.
