Where do the Hawkeyes rank?

The 2015 seasons is done and in the books (congrats to the Roll Tide Empire, yet again), which must mean that it's already time to start thinking about the 2016 seasons -- and the 2017 College Football Playoff, right?  Well, Vegas is already ahead of you, with odds for who's going to win the 2017 National Championship, courtesy of Bovada.

TEAM ODDS xx TEAM ODDS
Alabama 7/1 Nebraska 50/1
Clemson 15/2 North Carolina 50/1
Baylor 12/1 Oklahoma State 50/1
Michigan 12/1 Texas A&M 50/1
Ohio State 12/1 Miami (FL) 66/1
LSU 14/1 South Carolina 66/1
Notre Dame 14/1 Washington 66/1
Oklahoma 14/1 Utah 66/1
Stanford 14/1 Washington State 66/1
Florida State 16/1 Texas 75/1
Ole Miss 22/1 Virginia Tech 75/1
Oregon 22/1 West Virginia 75/1
Tennessee 22/1 Arizona 100/1
Florida 33/1 Arizona State 100/1
Georgia 33/1 BYU 100/1
Houston 33/1 Boise State 100/1
Iowa 33/1 California 100/1
Michigan State 33/1 Georgia Tech 100/1
TCU 33/1 Maryland 100/1
USC 33/1 Mississippi State 100/1
UCLA 40/1 Missouri 100/1
Wisconsin 50/1 NC State 100/1
Arkansas 50/1 Northwestern 100/1
Auburn 50/1 Penn State 100/1
Louisville 50/1


Iowa checks in a 33/1, tied with Michigan State for third-best in the Big Ten (behind Ohio State and Michigan, both at 12/1) and the best odds that Iowa has had at this point in probably a decade (or at least since the lead-up to the 2010 season).  In all, nine Big Ten teams were given odds to win the title:

12/1: Michigan
12/1: Ohio State
33/1: Iowa
33/1: Michigan State
50/1: Wisconsin
50/1: Nebraska
100/1: Maryland
100/1: Northwestern
100/1: Penn State

That's, right, 50/1 on Nebraska.  No, I don't know why, either.  But, hey, if you feel strongly about throwing away money on Tommy Armstrong, go for it.

Anyway, 33/1 odds for Ferentz and C.J. to hoist up the Giant Champagne Flute in Tampa next January.  Not too shabby.
