Canzeri Working to Lead Iowa into Playoff
Iowa is unbeaten, and after an Ohio State loss this weekend, could move into the Top 4 of the College Football Playoff rankings when they come out later today.
One of the reasons why is Jordan Canzeri, who is the Troy High School graduate who anchors the Hawkeyes' backfield.
Canzeri had 95 yards and a touchdown on Saturday against Purdue when Iowa won, 40-20.
He missed two games with injury in the middle of the season, but Canzeri has rushed for 824 yards this season and is on his way toward 1,000.
Before getting hurt, Canzeri had games of 124, 115, 125 and 256 yards. Since his return, he's had games of 31 and 95.
But, if Iowa is able to get into the Playoff picture and can win the Big 10 title game, the nation will have a better chance to see what the Capital Region has already known -- that Canzeri is a special talent.
Iowa plays Nebraska this week to close out the regular season.
