No. 19 Iowa at Purdue

Adam Hensley (Pregame Editor, 24-16): Iowa – Nate Stanley vs. David Blough, the quarterback battle we’ve all been waiting for.

Pete Ruden (Sports Editor, 26-14): Iowa – Iowa and Indiana are both underrated states, though, don’t @ me.

Anna Kayser (Assistant Sports Editor, 24-16): Iowa –  I’m not going to start betting on Purdue now.

Jordan Zuniga (Football reporter, 27-13): Iowa – Stanley brings his good arm to West Lafayette.

Lucy Rohden (Co-DITV Sports Director, 26-14): Iowa –  Purdue Pete is creepy.

Beau Bowman (Co-DITV Sports Director): Iowa – Purdue is gonna have a red caboose after this one.

Jason Brummond (Publisher, 27-13): Iowa – Here’s hoping Stanley is closer to 6 TDs than 6 completions.

No. 12 West Virginia at No. 15 Texas

Hensley: West Virginia – I want “Take Me Home, Country Roads” injected into my veins.

Ruden: West Virginia – I wish the Iowa student section bumped “Mo Bamba” after games like West Virginia plays “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

Kayser: West Virginia – Do mountaineers hunt longhorns?

Zuniga: Texas – Nice to see the Big 12 has more than just Oklahoma.

Rohden: West Virginia – One time I was almost kidnapped in West Virginia, but I survived.

Bowman: West Virginia – Texas is not back. Sorry. Y’all lost to Maryland.

Brummond: Texas – West Virginia lost to Iowa State.

No. 1 Alabama at No. 4 LSU

Kayser: Alabama – Alabama could probably beat the Browns.

Zuniga: LSU – Tigers roll the Tide.

Rohden: Alabama – I heard the skies are so blue.

Bowman: Alabama – L-S-U? More like L-S-Poo, amirite?

No. 6 Georgia at No. 11 Kentucky

Hensley: Georgia – Kentucky Fried Chicken > Kentucky Wildcat football

Ruden: Georgia – The countdown to Ahmad Wagner’s first college reception continues.

Kayser: Georgia – Dogs vs. Cats, again.

Zuniga: Georgia – I’ve always been more of a dog person.

Rohden: Georgia – Sorry, Ahmad Wagner, Kentucky is a basketball school.

Brummond: Georgia – It was a fun while it lasted, Kentucky.

No. 14 Penn State at No. 5 Michigan

Kayser: Michigan – Penn State? Beat Michigan? HA, good joke.

Zuniga: Michigan – Let’s just fast-forward to Michigan vs. Ohio State.

Brummond: Michigan – Name a more unlikable QB-coach duo than McSorley-Franklin. I’ll wait.
