Site: El Paso, Texas

Time: 2:30 p.m. today

TV: Ch. 13

Line: Washington by 5

Players to watch:

Sedrick Shaw, Iowa: The junior tailback is the Hawkeyes' career rushing leader and had two games this season of more than 40 carries and more than 200 yards.

Damon Huard, Washington: In a program with a history of good quarterbacks, Huard has eclipsed them all with 5,692 yards passing and 34 touchdowns -- one shy of the school mark -- in his three-year career.

Best win:Best win:

Iowa 33, Wisconsin 20: A surprising 5-0 start was followed by four consecutive losses in which the Hawkeyes were outscored, 154-89. This victory halted the slide and put Iowa in position for a bowl bid.

Washington 38, UCLA 14: This victory in the next-to-last game of the season gave the Huskies some momentum after back-to-back disappointments at home -- a 24-22 loss to Oregon and a 21-21 tie with USC in a game Washington led 21-0.

Outlook: If history is an indication, Iowa is in big trouble. Dating to the 1982 Rose Bowl -- a 28-0 loss to Washington -- Iowa is 2-6 against the Pac-10. The Hawkeyes have only one win against a team with a winning record (Michigan State).
