It's far from official, but based on an accidental link posted to Iowa's website, it looks like the Hawkeyes are heading to the Music City Bowl.
The Nashville-based bowl game was cited as a possibility by both athletic director Gary Barta, along with the Foster Farms, Holiday, and Pinstripe Bowls, and the Music City Bowl president Scott Ramsey, who also named Northwestern and Purdue as potential participants, per Land of 10.
Iowa's official website may have ruined the intrigue.
For about 15 minutes this afternoon, HawkeyeSports.com listed the December 29 Music City Bowl as an upcoming event, and even had a page posted for fans to order tickets. No other bowl game was posted.
Iowa has never played in the Music City Bowl, and Nashville is a pretty fun destination, so it will probably be a popular choice for fans of the Hawkeyes. That is, assuming it comes to fruition. There's always a chance that there were multiple pages built out for the various bowl options, and this one went live by accident.
If the Hawkeyes are heading to the Music City, it looks like tickets through the school will run fans $85 a piece.
