Saturday’s 24-7 loss to Purdue has knocked the Iowa Hawkeyes down to number-11 in the A-P College Football Poll.
Iowa had been ranked second. Purdue wasn’t ranked.
Some comparisons are being made to the way pollsters treated Alabama after a 41-38 loss to unranked Texas A&M.
The Crimson Tide only fell four positions, from number-one to number-five.
Iowa will try to bounce back Saturday with a win at Wisconsin.
