See, that's the thing. It all comes down to strength of schedule. Iowa is scheduling BCS bowl teams as non-conference opponents (and kicking the crap out of them). While Alabama hasn't even played a single BCS bowl team yet this year (and played West Carolina in the heart of the season to pad their schedule).

Imagine if Bama had to play Iowa's brutal schedule. They'd be lucky to be .500
