Colin Cowherd says Iowa is no longer the “fake ID” of college football.
For the past few years, FOX Sports radio host Colin Cowherd has called Iowa the “fake ID” of college football – noting that the Hawkeyes never knock off big opponents and never schedule tough for their non-conference slate. But after Iowa’s big win over Ohio State on Saturday, Cowherd says the Hawkeyes “turned 21” – and that he needs applications for a new squad in its place.
Monday, Cowherd listed three candidates. We’re sure fans of the three teams will take no exception to the idea.
“My national championship college pick Ohio State went up in flames. You know J.T. Barrett does this to me. I fall in love with this kid every year, and he has two or three great games, and then he just goes and throws a bunch of picks. Their secondary in the last ten games – Ohio State has been blown out three times – and their secondary on each occasion was weak.
Let’s just give Iowa some credit. Obviously, Ohio State off that Penn State win was a little flat. Iowa, offensively, was fantastic. Nate Stanley, their quarterback, was amazing. This is not all on Ohio State. You’ve got to give it to Iowa – Iowa turned 21 on Saturday.
They are no longer the fake ID of college football. I am taking applications for the next fake ID of college football. It appears Washington, Wisconsin and Miami all qualify.”

At the moment, all three of Cowherd’s suggestions are in play for a College Football Playoff berth.
