According to multiple reports, Iowa's starting running back and arguably best player on offense Marcus Coker has been suspended for the upcoming Insight Bowl. It's being described as "disciplinary reasons" and he will not travel with the team to Tempe.
Wouldn't go so far as to say this even things up by any means, but make no mistake this is a gigantic loss for the Hawkeyes. As a team, Iowa rushed for 1,970 yards. Coker accounted for 1,417 of those yards and no other player had as much as 250 yards rushing.
This is a big, big win for the OU defense and if you don't believe me just check out the stellar SB Nation's Iowa blog Black Heart Gold Pants.
