What a time to be an Iowa Hawkeye. Iowa is currently undefeated, and it’s looking more and more likely that the Hawkeyes will capture the Big Ten West and earn a spot in the conference championship game.

PGA star Zach Johnson happens to be a huge Iowa fan, and on Saturday, he will serve as an honorary captain for the Hawkeyes when they take on Maryland at Kinnick Stadium.

Iowa is 7-0 on the season and has a favorable schedule going forward. It’s good to see that big names such as Johnson are starting to take notice of what’s becoming a magical season in Iowa City.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
