Northwestern at Iowa

Adam Hensley (Pregame Editor, 28-17): Iowa – I’m just glad basketball is finally back.

Pete Ruden (Sports Editor, 30-15): Iowa – “Last week took an L, but this week we bounce back.” — Iowa and Big Sean, circa 2017-18

Anna Kayser (Assistant Sports Editor, 28-17): Iowa – I had my Northwestern pick all typed out but … Kinnick.

Jordan Zuniga (football reporter, 29-16): Iowa – Pat Fitzgerald is a poor man’s Kirk Ferentz.

Lucy Rohden (Co-DITV Sports Director, 30-15): Iowa – Am I the only one who feels like Clayton Thorson has been in college for like 10 years?

Beau Bowman (Co-DITV Sports Director, 33-12): Iowa – Pat Fitzgerald is a pompous fool.

Jason Brummond (Publisher, 30-15): Iowa – Nobody wants to win the West.

No. 16 Fresno State at Boise State

Hensley: Fresno State – Playing on a blue field with blue uniforms does not make sense. Neither does living in Idaho.

Ruden: Fresno State – Given the fact that Paul George went here, this pick hurts. Paul George sucks.

Kayser: Fresno State -Blue fields are stupid.

Zuniga: Boise State – I dig that blue turf.

Rohden: Fresno State – Neither Fresno nor Boise are states but OK.

Bowman: Boise State – “Boise” is a loose translation of the French word for wood, and the Broncos are definitely laying the wood this weekend.

Brummond: Boise State – Blue turf overcomes being less west.

Wisconsin at No. 21 Penn State

Hensley: Penn State – @CaptainCdub called James Franklin “a lying car salesman” on Twitter. It’s in my mentions.

Ruden: Penn State – This really would have been a top of the line game at the beginning of the season. It’s a shame …

Kayser: Penn State – Neither of these teams will ever play for anything that really matters.

Zuniga: Penn State – Looks like the Badgers won’t have a Big Ten Championship game to lose this season.

Rohden: Penn State – One time I rode in an elevator with Alex Hornibrook, and I didn’t even say anything mean to him.

Bowman: Penn State – Sconnie bars exclusively play Wheeler Walker Jr., and that can’t be good for the brain.

Brummond: Penn State – See Iowa-Northwestern comment.

Oklahoma State at No. 6 Oklahoma

Hensley: Oklahoma – When Mike Gundy cut his mullet, it was like cutting off a crazy ex. It was about time.

Ruden: Oklahoma – Who wins in a football/baseball street fight, Kyler Murray or Bo Jackson?

Kayser: Oklahoma – I once had a stalker that went to OSU. True story.

Zuniga: Oklahoma – The real question is will they top the 76 point over/under.

Rohden: Oklahoma – Bob Stoops to Iowa? Calling it.

Bowman: Oklahoma – That Kyler Murray is only 5-9 gives guys like me hope.

Brummond: Oklahoma – Sooners and Cowboys are both from the Old West.

Oregon at Utah

Hensley: Oregon – Fact: I have a Utah license plate in my room. But I’d rather have one of Oregon’s white-out jerseys.

Ruden: Oregon – Where did all the bandwagon Oregon fans go …?

Kayser: Utah – Things I care about more than this game: Mike McCarthy keeping his job. He shouldn’t.

Zuniga: Utah – The Cristobal has the Utes.

Rohden: Oregon – Quack quack.

Bowman: Oregon – Every time I mention Utah, I hear Nick Rohlman saying, “The first transcontinental railroad was celebrated in Promontory.”

Brummond: Utah – Even though Oregon is more west than Utah.
