College football Week 6: Pick 'ems, TV listings

  • Photo


Marc Morehouse (2-1, 11-4) — Pros and cons of Floyd in Minneapolis: He’ll become a hipster, but the ice fishing is outstanding. It’s a real dilemma for the 98.3-pound fella. Minnesota 24, Iowa 21

Mike Hlas (2-1, 9-6) — There was a movie made about Floyd of Rosedale. Except instead of a pig they had a bunch of sharks that were scooped up in a tornado. That was weird. Minnesota 31, Iowa 28

Jeremiah Daivs (2-1, 10-5) — This feels like a desperate battle for Floyd of Rosedale, no? Neither one of these teams wants any part of the fallout of another loss. Minnesota 21, Iowa 17

Beth Malicki (2-1, 11-4) — This is my first pick ’ems as a 40 year old, so that either means I’m filled with wisdom and will dominate or I can’t remember why I started writing this sentence and speak up, sonny! Iowa 26, Minnesota 20

Zach Hanley (2-1, 12-3) — Three weeks and three underperforming performances by Iowa. That trend stays this week and so does Floyd. Minnesota 24, Iowa 17

Todd Brommelkamp (2-1, 10-5) — The stretch of highway between the Twin Cities and Eastern Iowa has temporarily been renamed the Avenue of the Ain’ts. Make sure to update your GPS and Big Ten title plans accordingly. Minnesota 28, Iowa 24


Morehouse — Ever really read, I mean really, really read, the lyrics to Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend.” Makes you think, man. OSU 44, ISU 24

Hlas — Oklahoma State’s stadium is named for benefactor T. Boone Pickens. He’s supposedly a billionaire, but refuses to show me his tax returns from the last 20 years. OSU 45, ISU 28

Davis — I was there in 2011 when the Cyclones pulled off their greatest upset. That ISU team had five future NFL players on it. The current one has one. OSU 38, ISU 30

Malicki — Remember in 2011 when Iowa State beat Oklahoma State in double overtime? That was awesome. OSU 42, ISU 31

Hanley — There’s a reason ISU hasn’t won in Stillwater since 2000. The streak continues. OSU 42, ISU 35

Brommelkamp — A wise man once said to be the man, you’ve got to beat the man. Mike Gundy is a man but is he the man? Discuss. OSU 45, ISU 30


Morehouse — I mean, “Everyone’s watching to see what you will do. Everyone’s looking at you ... oh.” Stop creeping, Loverboy. Oklahoma 38, Texas 35

Hlas — Texas and Oklahoma are 2-2. Those schools clearly haven’t made a commitment to their football programs. Oklahoma 49, Texas 35

Davis — Remember, like, a month ago when this looked like a great matchup that could have College Football Playoff implications? Now it’s just got a Tom Herman-hovering kinda feel. Oklahoma 27, Texas 23

Malicki — Oklahoma is due for a win after some disappointing performances this season. See, the wisdom is winning at my ripe age! Oklahoma 35, Texas 22

Hanley — New defensive coordinator for Texas, not a problem of Oklahoma. Boomer Sooner. OU wins the 111th meeting of the Red River Rivalry. Oklahoma 41, Texas 27

Brommelkamp — If Charlie Strong and a clown were both trying to hitch a ride somewhere most Longhorn fans would at least think about stopping for the clown before hitting the gas and speeding off. Oklahoma 37, Texas 34
