Oregon didn’t even win its own division, yet ended up securing its second straight Pac-12 title. That’s college football in 2020. Meanwhile, Iowa State fell short of its first conference championship since 1912, but the Cyclones are making their first appearance in a major bowl game since the 1977 Peach Bowl. Both teams also have intriguing (and sought-after) coaches, with Mario Cristobal building a West Coast power and Matt Campbell turning a moribund program into a perennial Big 12 contender. These teams are well-rounded, both ranking in the top 15 in efficiency, and feature some creative offenses, which should make for a fun back-and-forth game.
