    Wisconsin might hit the over by themselves.

    Georgia Tech reminded me of Iowa State last night. Everything was going well until there was a stupid PF.

    I actually think Iowa wins fairly easily. I pray that I'm wrong.

    Re: 5 for the Weekend

    I think Iowa wins as well, and Id rather see Iowa winning than losing because that makes our win look a hell of a lot better...same with Tech, why wouldn't you want them to succeed after we beat them down?

    Re: 5 for the Weekend

    I'm gonna go with Michigan State in this one actually.

    1. I think Michigan St wants revenge after their previous few meetings with Iowa(beaten in the last second at home, stomped on the road last year).

    2. Iowa is probably prone to having a letdown game after their big home win over Michigan.

    3. The Cyclone homer in me just wants to root against them, ha.

    I agree, when it looks too good to be true or easy money, it's a trap. 9 times out of 10 it goes the other way! Just like Michigan last week.

    I would have picked Va Tech having known they had 2 weeks to prepare. That aside...

    Mizzou over TX... by 10.
    Stanford over Oregon, and 66 or more combined pts is very realistic.
    Mich St. should, *should*, beat Iowa by 10
    Minnesota is playing inspired football as of late. I call Wiscy by 17, but I doubt the combined scores will top 63.5.

    Michigan State is averaging 9 points a game on the road and they are doing that against OK defenses. Iowa is a really good home team when underdogs. Cousins can't run so Iowa's base defense will be very effective.

    Yep. That's the big10 for you. Even their ranked teams arnt very good this year. MSU's offense is terrible this year but there defense is solid, but that's prob only cuz there playing inept big10 offenses each week
