                             Iowa Drops Outback Bowl To LSU 21-14

The Iowa Hawkeyes played to the final gun before finally falling to the SEC's LSU Tigers 21-14 in the 2014 Outback Bowl. Iowa completes the 2013 season 8-5 which is a tremendous improvement over the 2012 record of 4-8.

In this game, Iowa's Defense played well enough to win, despite surrendering too many rushing yards. But Iowa's Offense, once again, disappeared for long periods - this time especially in the 1st Half, failed to sustain drives, and was unable to cash in several times when it had good field position.

2014 will open a new chapter for Iowa Football - with most players returning on both sides of the ball. The key losses will be the Hawkeyes' outstanding trio of starting linebackers. Iowa's Defense improved substantially as the season progressed. Iowa's Offense was better than it was in 2012 but still appears to be searching for an identity under Coordinator Greg Davis.

The Big Ten will look different next season as well, following the addition of Maryland and Rutgers coupled with significant realignment after the end of the Legends and Leaders Divisions. Iowa should enter the Fall as one of the contenders in the new West Division with a solid chance of building on its 2013 success.
