TAMPA BAY, Florida -- Fifteen Iowa seniors will play their final game with the Hawkeyes at Raymond James Stadium on New Year's Day.

They're a little motivated.

"With it being your last one, and especially coming off not making a bowl game last year, to turn this thing around this year has been huge for us as senior leaders," safety Tanner Miller said. "We want to leave the program the right way."

"Just go out with a bang," linebacker Christian Kirksey said. "We want to start the new year off right. To go against a great team, historically and now, it's a great challenge for us."

"I always want to play my best," linebacker James Morris said. "But with this being my last game, I want to make it a game worth remembering."
