Colorado State vs. No. 5 Iowa

Austin Hanson, Sports Editor (12-3): Iowa — I’m tired of these cupcake games already.

Chloe Peterson, Assistant Sports Editor (6-9): Iowa — This is the only one I’m confident about.

Chris Werner, Football Reporter (8-7): Iowa — Fade to black, no tagline needed.

Destinee Cook, DITV Sports Director (8-7): Iowa — I hope someone picked Colorado State just for fun.

John Bohnenkamp, Sports Writing Coach (11-4): Iowa — Iowa 4-0 heading into Big Ten play would be big.

Jason Brummond, Publisher (13-2): Iowa —  Iowa has never lost to CSU. Granted, this is the first meeting.

 

No. 12 Notre Dame vs. No. 18 Wisconsin

Peterson: Notre Dame — #Revenge game for Jack Coan.

Werner: Wisconsin — Hey look, good teams at Soldier Field!

Cook: Wisconsin — Notre Dame is a fluke.

Bohnenkamp: Wisconsin — Just don’t think the Irish are that good.

No. 7 Texas A&M vs. No. 16 Arkansas

Cook: Arkansas — Arkansas is kinda on a hot streak.

Bohnenkamp: Arkansas— An insignificant Big 12 matchup.

Brummond: Texas A&M — Arkansas’ live hog mascot, Tusk, likes grapes, corn and watermelon. He would get along with my two-year-old son.

Hanson: Oklahoma State — The Cowboys really ain’t played nobody yet, but still.
