    When you put Pick Em in the title, the first thing I thought was Ankeny Football on Cybookie. Brilliant idea. Although it would be neat, probably not going to happen.

    Ankeny - 35
    Dowling - 31

    The ranking here is very misleading. Both of these teams could easily be number one in the state. I will give Dowling the edge by three becuase of there Defensive line. Dowling 24 Ankeny 21.

    As a former CIML Central foe, I hate both teams with a passion. But Dowling wins, 26-12.

    Ankeny is my new adopted team besides Ames. (Played for Ames, live in Ankeny now). Gotta go Hawks.

    This game honestly could be the state title game. I think both are better than every other team.

    Do either of these teams have any D1 recruits? It seems like they are good every year, but rarely seem to put D1 recuirts.

    Ankeny has a freshman running back, last name Lanning, who will most likely be a D1 recruit unless he decides to do baseball like his older brother.

    As far as the game prediction, my gut tells me Dowlilng is pretty darn good this year, but I'm an Ankeny fan so GO HAWKS! Ankeny - 31 Dowling - 28

    Dowlings QB Mr. Hudson, is (or has been) scouted. I'm hoping since his dad was an asst. coach at Iowa State, he'll have some better exposure. I'm going to go with a blow-out game, giving DCHS the easy victory (with their depth)
    I'll say 38-7

    It's a home game for Dowling and they don't have their own stadium. Sometimes they play at Valley, sometimes Urbandale, sometimes Drake stadium. That would suck I would think......

    Dowlings home games are played there... unless they are the home team against Valley, then its played at Drake.

    They are on one poll... but the DM Rag poll had 'em down a little.

    Ankeny's offense is good, but Dowling's defense is spectacular. Dowling 35, ankeny 17.

    You know, I seem to remember having Cybookie available for a Valley Dowling game before, so maybe we could get something up here for thsi one.

    10k+ would really surprise me. Last I heard the Valley Dowling game at Drake this year was around 11,500, so I really wouldn't expect the crowd for this to be quite that large.

    As for the game, I'll take Dowling 28-14. Ankeny really should have lost to Waukee, and while I think Waukee is a very good team I don't think they are at the elite level of Dowling.
