Northern Iowa at Iowa

Adam Hensley (Pregame Editor, 6-4): Iowa – This game shouldn’t be scheduled in the first place.

Pete Ruden (Sports Editor, 6-4): Iowa –UNI hasn’t been as good ever since former punter and school-record holder Logan Bieghler graduated.

Anna Kayser (Asst. Sports Editor, 8-2): Iowa – It’s a Hawkeye State. Enough said.

Jordan Zuniga (football reporter, 6-4): Iowa – Maybe the Hawkeye offense will show up for this one.

Lucy Rohden (Co-DITV Sports Director, 9-1): Iowa – Soooo, when are we going to stop playing FCS teams?

Beau Bowman (Co-DITV Sports Director, 7-3): Iowa – Where I’m from we have a saying: “Looks like someone took the slow train from Cedar Falls.”

Jason Brummond (Publisher, 7-3): Iowa – I don’t think I’ve heard anyone chant “Panther State.” Ever.

No. 12 LSU at No. 7 Auburn

Hensley: Auburn – “War Eagle,” said the fan base with a Tiger mascot.

Ruden: Auburn – I bet the Tigers win.

Kayser: Auburn – LSU is about to get burned.

Zuniga: Auburn – I guarantee a Tiger victory.

Rohden: Auburn – Geaux Tigers. Wait, I mean GO Tigers.

Bowman: Auburn – I’ll take the Tigers in this one.

Brummond: Auburn – So this is an afternoon game while Iowa-UNI is a night game? Got it.

Texas State at South Alabama

Hensley: Texas State – That’s right. I’m picking against Alabama (State).

Ruden: South Alabama – These teams would both be rated under 60 overall in NCAA Football.

Kayser: Texas State – Both of these teams are trash.

Zuniga: South Alabama – Who vs. who?

Rohden: Texas State – Ahh, yes, the most anticipated matchup of the college-football season.

Bowman: Texas State – What.

Brummond: South Alabama – Proximity to Saban has to count for something.

No. 4 Ohio State at No. 15 TCU

Hensley: Ohio State – Urban Meyer was, and is, out of pocket.

Ruden: Ohio State – A Horned Frog is so much cooler than a Buckeye. Too bad the mascots aren’t the ones playing.

Kayser: Ohio State – If Ohio State wins again, then maybe it’ll suspend Urban Meyer for more games.

Zuniga: Ohio State – Dwayne Haskins is going to take the Horned Frogs to church.

Rohden: Ohio State – The bad guys usually win.

Bowman: Ohio State – Fact: In 1926, Ohio State’s Homecoming queen was a cow. The Buckeyes have continued the tradition every year since.

Brummond: Ohio State – Fortunately for the Buckeyes, this is a football game and not an ethics debate.

Missouri at Purdue

Hensley: Missouri – Last season Beau Bowman accidentally drove us into the heart of Missouri. We were supposed to go to Nebraska.

Ruden: Missouri – If Tyler Wiegers can beat the Boilermakers, so can Drew Lock.

Kayser: Missouri – Purdue makes me embarrassed to be a Big Ten football fan.

Zuniga: Missouri – Eastern Michigan was Purdue’s only winnable game.

Rohden: Missouri – Purdue has won as many games as Urban Meyer has coached in this season.

Bowman: Missouri – This game is a LOCK. Purdue will have a long TRAIN ride home.

Brummond: Missouri – Shoutout to former Iowa backup QB Tyler Wiegers for beating Purdue last week.
