AP's (June) bowl projection for Iowa: The TaxSlayer Bowl

Zack Creglow

We need football to get here in a hurry.

Nothing illustrates this more than bowl projections in June. The AP's Ralph Russo put out his best guesses for the 2015-16 bowl season on Tuesday evening. He originally had the Hawks in two bowl games -- the Quick Lane and TaxSlayer bowls -- before the list was corrected. (That was fun while it lasted.)

The updated version has the Hawkeyes facing off against South Carolina in the TaxSlayer Bowl. Of course, Iowa was handled 45-28 by Tennessee in last season's Taxslayer Bowl on Jan. 2.

The AP says Kirk Ferentz will lead the Hawkeyes to two bowls in the 2015-16 bowl season.
