ESPN, CBS differ on Hawkeyes’ seeding in latest Bracketology prior to Big Ten Tournament
With the Big Ten Tournament as the only thing looming between now and Selection Sunday on March 12, the Iowa Hawkeyes still see themselves floating between three to four different seed lines based on the latest Bracketology updates.
The loss to Nebraska in the final regular season game has left a strong impression on a handful of predictions and sees the Hawkeyes sliding down the seed lines a bit while some others appear to be dismissing it as a fluke.
Either way, the Hawkeyes head to Chicago looking to pick up some quality wins in an effort to improve their seeding even more and climb up the seed lines.
A lot could change regarding these updates if the Hawkeyes can make a run. An early exit from the conference tournament could also spell some slippage in their seeding. Here are some of the latest updates from ESPN, CBS Sports, USA TODAY Sports, and others prior to the Big Ten Tournament tipping off.
