No. 18 Wisconsin at Iowa

Adam Hensley (Pregame Editor, 9-6): Wisconsin – I think Iowa will gain more than 66 yards of total offense, though.

Pete Ruden (Sports Editor, 10-5): Iowa- I never would have said this a week ago.

Anna Kayser (Asst. Sports Editor, 11-4): Iowa – Night game at Kinnick? Why is this a question?

Jordan Zuniga (football reporter, 10-5): Iowa – Because Alex Hornibrook is Wisconsin’s quarterback.

Lucy Rohden (Co-DITV Sports Director, 12-3): Wisconsin – I actually want to be wrong for once in my life.

Beau Bowman (Co-DITV Sports Director, 11-4): Wisconsin – 3-0 in OT.

Jason Brummond (Publisher, 11-4): Iowa – Gus Johnson. Kinnick at night. Big Ten West supremacy. You had me at Gus Johnson.

Minnesota at Maryland

Hensley: Maryland – Give me the reptile with the hard outer shell and a razor-sharp beak over a fluffy mammal with buck teeth.

Ruden: Maryland – Too bad Minnesota can’t score at the rate that P.J. Fleck talks. Not elite.

Kayser: Minnesota – Gotta back up my power rankings.

Zuniga: Maryland – Does anyone even care about these two teams?

Rohden: Minnesota – I feel spiritually connected with P.J. Fleck. It’s ELITE.

Bowman: Maryland – Minnesota has the largest collection of Sherlock Holmes artifacts, yet it still can’t detect a way to win the Big Ten.

Brummond: Maryland – Gophers might be the worst 3-0 team in America.

Pittsburgh at North Carolina

Hensley: Pittsburgh – Maybe if Pittsburgh beats North Carolina, LeVeon Bell will show up to practice.

Ruden: Pittsburgh – When Pitt fans go to bed, they still check under their beds for Marshall Koehn.

Kayser: Pittsburgh – Yeah, North Carolina should stick to basketball.

Zuniga: Pittsburgh – Look for the Tar Heels to get feathered.

Rohden: Pittsburgh – Larry Fedora thinks CTE doesn’t exist. If you watch North Carolina football, you’d think Fedora had CTE. Go Blue Devils.

Bowman: Pittsburgh – U-Pitt? More like Arm-Pitt, because you stink.

Brummond: North Carolina – Some needed normalcy after a challenging week in N.C.

Florida at Tennessee

Hensley: Florida – I had two Silver Cord hours in high school. Shows you what I think about Volunteers.

Ruden: Florida – Tim Tebow should still be in the NFL.

Kayser: Tennessee – A battle between two bad tourist states.

Zuniga: Florida – If Florida can’t beat a bunch of Volunteers, it doesn’t deserve a team.

Rohden: Florida – “Rocky Top” is the worst song ever written. Don’t @ me.

Bowman: Florida – Fact: Tennessee’s agriculture campus was built on Native American burial ground. I believe in curses. Don’t pick Tennessee.

Brummond: Florida – I can’t believe I’m picking a team that lost to Kentucky.

Arizona State at No. 10 Washington

Hensley: Washington – This is for decommitting from Iowa, Eno Benjamin.

Ruden: Washington – I only averaged 1.8 fewer yards per carry over the last two weeks than Eno Benjamin.

Kayser: Washington – If this were a party-school contest, Arizona State would win, but it’s not.

Zuniga: Washington – Winter is coming for the Sun Devils.

Rohden: Washington – Dance with my dogs in the night time.

Bowman: Washington – Woof.

Brummond: Washington – “You play to win the game.” Just not this one.
