With their spot in the Big Ten Conference championship confirmed, the Iowa Hawkeyes look to end a lengthy drought in college football Over/Under (O/U) betting.
The No. 16 Hawkeyes are 9-2 straight up (SU) this season, but the opposite on the O/U — Iowa has hit the Over twice and the Under nine times.

The Hawkeyes (6-2 in Big Ten play) wrap up the regular season at the Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-5, 5-6) on Friday.
The Hawkeyes-Cornhuskers O/U opened at 28 combined points, the second-lowest of the season for Iowa.
The O/U was 27.5 — tied for the lowest opening total in history — for the Nov. 11 game against Rutgers, which Iowa won 22-0.
Iowa has hit the Under in six consecutive games, yet went 5-1 in that span.
After the Nebraska game, Iowa will play either No. 3 Michigan or No. 2 Ohio State in the Big Ten Conference Championship Game in Indianapolis on Dec. 2.
Despite the offensive struggles, the Hawkeyes have won six of their past seven games.
How are the Hawkeyes 9-2? Defense.
Despite being 14th (last) in yards per game (246.5) and scoring offense (18.5), Iowa is third in the Big Ten in points allowed per game (12.4) and fourth in yards allowed per game (281.4).
Iowa last hit the Over on Sept. 30, a 26-16 win over Michigan State (O/U 36.5).
