Colorado State vs. No. 5 Iowa

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.
