No. 20 Iowa vs. Rutgers

Pete Ruden, Pregame Editor (3-2): Iowa – Iowa >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> New Jersey

Anna Kayser, Sports Editor (4-1): Iowa – A Week 2 Big Ten game? We’re really living in 2019.

Robert Read, Assistant Sports Editor (2-3): Iowa – Playing Rutgers is basically a free conference win.

Pete Mills, Football Reporter (2-3): Iowa – The enthusiasm is high right now, which should scare you.

Lucy Rohden, DITV Director (4-1): Iowa – I mean, c’mon.

Jon Rawson, Assistant DITV Sports Director (4-1): Iowa – Rutgers’ best athletic feat is its back-to-back powerboating championships of 1933 and 1934. Google it.

Jason Brummond, Publisher (3-2): Iowa – I’m not ready for Big Ten games yet. Neither is Rutgers.

No. 9 Texas vs. No. 6 LSU

Ruden: LSU – My first comment about this game before I was forced to change it was definitely not about the teams’ rankings.

Kayser: LSU – Matthew McConaughey is a professor at Texas, and it’s still not enough.

Read: LSU – Is Texas back? Will people ever stop asking this question?

Mills: Texas – Someone told me Texas is back? I feel bad going against Ed Orgeron but can’t argue with Matthew McConaughey.

Rohden: LSU – I keep forgetting Texas is relevant again.

Rawson: LSU – Coach O’s voice is as rough as his team. #BayouBengals

Brummond: Texas – Professor McConaughey cancels class on Monday.

Miami vs. North Carolina

Ruden: Miami – There’s a legitimate hurricane closing in right now. It’s a sign.

Kayser: Miami – I can’t even make a Hurricane joke.

Read: North Carolina – Has The U tried to trademark “The” as well?

Mills: North Carolina – Texas is back, and so is Mack Brown!

Rohden: Miami – I feel like Pete’s intentionally picking UNC games to make me mad. #GTHC

Rawson: Miami – Miami is an awful place to raise a family, but a great place to raise a football team.

Brummond: Miami – Probably not the two cleanest programs in the country.

Arkansas State vs. UNLV

Ruden: UNLV – Assuming the Rebels don’t hit the Strip on Friday night.

Kayser: UNLV – I’m not gonna Rebel and pick Arkansas State. (Ha, get it?)

Read: UNLV – I’m going to gamble on UNLV.

Mills: UNLV – I heard Iowa City is being called “The Las Vegas of the Midwest” now that sports betting is legal. So, I guess we all go to UNLV now.

Rohden: Arkansas State – Surprised College GameDay won’t be there for this one.

Rawson: Arkansas State – I had a dynasty with the Red Wolves once in NCAA Football 14. I led them to a Sun Belt Conference title.

Brummond: UNLV – What channel is this game on?

Minnesota vs. Fresno State

Ruden: Minnesota – Paul George played at Fresno State, and we’re still not on good terms. Go Pacers.

Kayser: Minnesota – Row your boat straight to irrelevancy, Gophers.

Read: Minnesota – Hopefully, the boat doesn’t sink.

Mills: Fresno State – Why is this game being played at Fresno State?

Rohden: Minnesota – Would it be an OTL if I didn’t confess my love for P.J. Fleck?

Rawson: Fresno State – I turned a Magic 8-Ball for this game. It came up with, “I don’t care.”

Brummond: Minnesota – Because Minnesota looked so good against South Dakota State.
