Iowa rolls to 11-0, earns Big Ten West title

BY foxsports • November 21, 2015

On a cold and snowy day in Iowa City, the Hawkeyes took care of business on Saturday against Purdue, 40-20.

The win pushed their season record to 11-0 for the first time in school history and punched their ticket to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game as West representatives. In the win over the Boilermakers, CJ Beathard was as efficient as he's been all season completing 60 percent of his passes for 213 yards and three touchdown passes. 

Once again, Beathard didn’t throw an interception, accomplishing that for the eighth time this season.

Iowa recorded a perfect home record (7-0) for the first time since 2004. The only thing that stands in its way for a perfect regular season is a road game on Black Friday against rival Nebraska, which is 5-6 on the season.

With the Buckeyes losing to Michigan State in the Horseshoe today, expect Iowa to move into the top 4 this week heading into their final regular season game.
