First. the Football team goes undefeated in the regular season and earns trips to both the Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl.

Now, the Hawkeye basketball team has started the season 16-3 and 7-0 in the Big Ten.

The hot start has earned the Hawkeyes, who came into the season unranked, the #3 SPOT in the latest Associated Press College Basketball top 25 poll.

The ranking is the highest for Iowa hoops since the 1987 season.

Elsewhere, Iowa State moved up to 14th after defeating top ranked Oklahoma earlier in the week.

Despite the loss, the Sooners remain #1.
