If College Football Had a Playoff: #10 Iowa Hawkeyes @ #7 Oregon Ducks


Before we get to game four the previous matchup of #15 East Carolina at #2 Texas resulted in a not so surprising Texas easy win.

This current machup of Oregon and Iowa is of contrasting styles and it would be interesting to see how Iowa's defense does against the Oregon spread rushing attack.  Also, this game would be different depending on the status of Iowa QB Ricky Stanzi.  The Iowa defense should be able to stop the big plays of Oregon, but the yards could just add up if Oregon is successful.

Now for the somewhat scientific view by using What if Sports to simulate this fine matchup that favored Oregon in a close one with Oregon winning 27-20.  What if has LaMIchacel James rushing for 267 yards and a score to lead the way for the Ducks.

Now it is time for the fan vote to decide who moves on.  Check back daily at 12 PM eastern time to vote for the next matchup, and voting is only for 24 hours.  As they say in Chicago vote early and vote often.
