No. 23 Iowa vs. Purdue
Pete Ruden, Pregame Editor (16-14): Iowa — I will make sure I meet Purdue Pete this time, so we can bond over our cool names.
Anna Kayser, Sports Editor (16-14): Iowa — I really wanted to pick Purdue but much like Iowa’s recent offense, I just couldn’t finish.
Robert Read, Assistant Sports Editor (15-15): Iowa — I mean, probably?
Pete Mills, Football Reporter (15-15): Iowa — Iowa lost without Nate Stanley’s goatee, and it also lost with the goatee, so I don’t know how to predict games.
Lucy Rohden, DITV Director (18-12): Iowa — Two black and cold teams. Two dead and cold offenses.
Jon Rawson, Assistant DITV Sports Director (18-12): Iowa — Purdue? More like Purdon’t, am I right?
Jason Brummond, Publisher (18-12): Iowa — Hawkeye offense explodes for 17 points.
No. 12 Oregon vs. No. 25 Washington
Ruden: Oregon — What’s a duck’s favorite drug? Quack!
Kayser: Oregon — Roll…. Ducks?
Read: Oregon — The Oregon Duck is an elite mascot
Mills: Oregon — I can’t watch Pac-12 games because I go to sleep too early, so I’ll just take Oregon.
Rohden: Oregon — Get your insurance needs with Aflac!
Rawson: Oregon — I have no reason as to why I’m picking the Ducks, but 12 is better than 25.
Brummond: Oregon — The Oregon Duck and Harry the Husky Twitter feud is legendary.
No. 7 Penn State vs. No. 16 Michigan
Ruden: Penn State — Penn State can be pretty good in night games apparently.
Kayser: Penn State — Ah, two weeks of pain wrapped up in a nice little primetime game.
Read: Penn State — ICYMI: Both of these teams beat Iowa.
Mills: Penn State — Beaver Stadium? Whiteout? Michigan? Please.
Rohden: Penn State — Penn State will win if it gets more than one net rushing yard.
Rawson: Penn State — My sadness continues to mount with College Football, much like Penn State up the rankings.
Brummond: Penn State — They can compare notes on how bad Iowa’s offense has been in October.
No. 13 Utah vs. No. 17 Arizona State
Ruden: Utah — Time for the Utes to celebrate at the Utah bars with their 2-percent beer.
Kayser: Utah — What exactly is a Ute?
Read: Arizona State — “You play to win the game.” – Herm Edwards

Rohden: Arizona State — I ain’t betting against the Devil, no freaking way.
Rawson: Utah — I almost went to Arizona State, but here I am. Roll Utes.
Brummond: Utah — I’m told Utah is the Iowa of the Pac-12. Works for me.
Hawaii vs. Air Force
Ruden: Hawaii — The Air Force battling the Rainbow Warriors sounds like something you read in a history book.
Kayser: Air Force — I’m convinced Pete threw this in here to throw us all off.
Read: Air Force — Flyovers at Air Force games must be insane.
Mills: Hawaii — Good thing Air Force has planes. It had to get to Aloha Stadium somehow.
Rohden: Air Force — It feels wrong picking against a team with a mascot that’s a rainbow warrior.
Rawson: Hawaii — Colt Brennan. Don’t tell me he doesn’t play there anymore.
Brummond: Hawaii — I’ve never been to Hawaii or the Air Force.
