IOWA CITY, Iowa — Hawkeye football fans will be waiting on a big reveal this weekend. They’ll learn the team’s bowl destination Sunday.

While there’s no science to forecasting bowl bids, the Holiday Bowl in San Diego remains Iowa’s most likely destination. Iowa hasn’t been there since 1991 and who doesn’t like the idea of San Diego in the winter?

It sounds like the organizers of the Holiday Bowl like the idea, too.

Iowa is likely to end up at one of three bowls.

The Holiday Bowl in San Diego is two days after Christmas.

Many fans would love the Music City Bowl in Nashville, but that seems a fading possibility,

And firmly back in play, the Outback Bowl in Tampa. That’s a January bowl, but it’s one the Hawkeyes have been to time and time again.
