Where: New Yankee Stadium, New York, New York
Watch on: ESPN
Odds: Iowa -2
Total O/U: 45

After six games, Boston College was 2-4 and seemed all but dead in their aim to reach a bowl game. Next up on their schedule was a visit to Louisville and the defending Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. They went toe to toe that day and escaped with a 45-42 win. They ended up winning five of six to finish 7-5, 4-4. They also beat Florida State 35-3 in that period during the Seminoles down year.

Iowa pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the year when they beat then #6 Ohio State 55-24. After close losses to Penn State and Michigan State earlier in the season it was a shocker to see them hang that many points on one of the best defenses in the country. They lost two of their last three -to Wisconsin and Purdue- before rebounding with a win over Nebraska.

The defense is the strength of both teams, with Iowa allowing 19.9 PPG and Boston College 22.5. Iowa scored 28.3 and Boston College 26.2.
