Iowa Hawkeyes finish 2023 season ranked No. 24 in final AP Top 25 college football poll

A year that was a bit up and down for the Iowa Hawkeyes at times showed no shortage of storylines and drama. From the 4-0 start to the stretch run to win the Big Ten West crown, to the sputtering at the end of the year.

Despite all of that, Iowa had a year that saw them ranked for most of the season and ending the year ranked No. 24 in the final AP Top 25 poll of the 2023 college football season.

The Hawkeyes battled through a media frenzy during the announcement that Brian Ferentz would be out as offensive coordinator when the season was finished and still managed to accomplish their goal as division champs.

The Hawkeyes finished the year 10-4 overall with a 7-2 mark in Big Ten play. This marks the 11th time that an Iowa team led by Kirk Ferentz has finished the season ranked. This is also the fifth time since 2018 that the Hawkeyes have ended the season ranked.
