Kirk Ferentz says, even under the new NCAA playoff system, it's "all about winning."
IOWA CITY, IA (KTIV) -- -
It's been a month since the NCAA announced it would go to a four team football playoff starting in 2014. For the Hawkeyes, winning the Big Ten title would put them in a great position to get into the "Final Four".
Iowa hasn't won at least a share of the conference title since 2004 but they like the new system.
"It's fun. It's different," said cornerback Micah Hyde. "I think it's going to be a good spin on this year and a hot topic to talk about. I bet you it's going to be talked about for the next year, the whole year. It's going to fun. I can't wait to see it."
"I think it will be pretty sweet," said safety Tanner Miller. "Hopefully that applies to us coming into the next few seasons. Hopefully we get to be a part of that. It's a step in the right direction for college football and I think it can only build from there."
Iowa's last trip to a BCS game was in the 2010 Orange Bowl.
"The bottom line is it's still all about winning," said head coach Kirk Ferentz. "If you win enough games you have a chance to be represented in the best games. It still kind of comes down to that."
