The Hawkeyes hit rock bottom on Saturday, losing at home to a MAC team, Western Michigan, that entered the game with a 3-7 record. In the Des Moines Register, Iowa athletic director Gary Barta accurately summed up his 6-6 team's status: "Technically we're bowl-eligible, but it sure seems like we're far-fetched to receive an invitation." The Hawkeyes, who were booed on their home field after falling behind 19-0 to the Broncos, appear to be the ninth-most attractive bowl-eligible team in the Big Ten, which has seven bowl affiliations. Iowa will have to pin its hopes on a scenario in which a 9-3 Illinois team gets pulled into the BCS with an at-large berth (freeing up a bowl spot for an eighth Big Ten team), and another conference fails to fill all of its bowl bids (freeing up a spot for the Hawkeyes).

In case you missed it, the RedHawks outlasted Akron on Wednesday night in what had to be one of the most boring nationally televised games in the history of college football. Neither team scored for the game's first 50 minutes, and lone points in the contest, which ended 7-0, came on a 7-yard fumble return by Miami's Craig Mester. There were seven turnovers committed, and the two teams combined for 536 total yards of offense. Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan has racked up more than 536 yards of total offense by himself twice this season; perhaps ESPN2 should ditch the MAC entirely in favor of more WAC games.
