Colin Cowherd has bashed Iowa in recent years for the way it has built its football schedule, and now the FOX sports personality is doing the same to Wisconsin.
In the wake of the first College Football Playoff rankings being announced on Tuesday, Cowherd took to the airwaves on Wednesday to commemorate the CFP committee for ranking the undefeated Badgers No. 9.
In the past, Cowherd called Iowa the “fake ID” of college football for its weak out-of-conference schedule, and he thinks Wisconsin is becoming the “new Iowa.”
“The committee said last night, ‘We don’t care if you’re undefeated. We don’t care Wisconsin. We don’t care what you’ve done in previous years. Schedule better games,'” Cowherd said. “By the way, Wisconsin’s out-of-conference is trash until 2020 when they do a home and home with Notre Dame. It’s trash. So congrats, Wisconsin is going to become the new Iowa: the fake ID of college football.”
“They are going to run the table against teams,” Cowherd continued. “They’re a good team, but eventually, they will be exposed when they play Ohio State.”
Wisconsin’s three non-conference games this season came against Utah State, Florida Atlantic and BYU, all of which ended in blowout wins for the Badgers.
“Wisconsin was all the way down at 9,” Cowherd said, “even though they were 8-0. The committee once again says, ‘Undefeated is not the determining factor.’ What does that mean? Force universities to play legitimate out-of-conference schedules.”

Wisconsin will look to prove Cowherd wrong when they hit the road to play Indiana at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday (on ABC) at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington.
