Iowa is undefeated in football. But in basketball, the season hasn't even started yet and the Hawkeyes already have a loss.
Friday night's exhibition game against Division-II Augustana — that's Augustana University, the one in South Dakota, not Augustana College in Illinois — didn't go well for the Hawkeyes, with Iowa falling, 76-74, on a buzzer-beating jumper. Seriously.
Take a look:

And get this: That game-winner was hit by Daniel Jansen, a native of Orange City, Iowa.
Now, it should be mentioned that Augustana is the No. 1-ranked team in Division-II and returns a ton of players from a team that finished 31-3 last season.
But does that really excuse Iowa's exhibition loss at home?
Thankfully for the Hawkeyes, this game does not impact their record at all and likely won't be in the minds of members of the NCAA tournament selection committee come March.
Still, though. Come on, Iowa.
