It’s been a little under a year, but Iowa is back in the AP Top 25.

The last time the Hawkeyes were ranked by the AP was Dec. 4, 2016 and they lost their ranking in the final poll after falling to Florida in the Outback Bowl.

It’ll be the 314th week the Hawkeyes have been in the poll, which ranks 24th all-time in FBS history.

The Hawkeyes aren’t the only team from the state ranked in the poll as Iowa State finds themselves a spot ahead of the Hawkeyes at No. 24, tumbling after a loss to West Virginia. Iowa and ISU are both ranked in the AP Poll for the first time since Sept. 18, 2005.

There certainly are some doubters out there. Twenty-five idiots left the Hawkeyes off their poll.

Iowa also wasn’t getting a lot of #respect from the coaches and were ranked 27th in that poll. Then again, the Coaches Poll is absolute trash and there’s a reason only idiots pay attention to it.

Anyways, it’s, as always, a good day to be a Hawkeye. It’s good to see an absolute thrashing of Ohio State is still worthy of entrance onto the AP ballot.

Iowa just might find themselves ranked in the College Football Playoff Rankings as well. Those rankings will be released Tuesday night at 6 p.m. Central on ESPN.
