IOWA AT PURDUE

Marc Morehouse (2-1, 13-5) — My go-to karaoke song is Glen Campbell’s "Wichita Lineman." What’s yours? Iowa 20, Purdue 10

Mike Hlas (2-1, 11-7) — How to get to West Lafayette: Go to Lafayette. Turn west. Iowa 35, Purdue 10

Jeremiah Davis (2-1, 12-6) — We’ve all made the sinkhole jokes already, right? I don’t have to make another one? OK, good. Iowa 24, Purdue 10

Beth Malicki (3-0, 14-4) — Bob Brooks’ loyalty to the Hawks never wavered. I miss his presence here, and know many of you do, too. Iowa 28, Purdue 17

Zach Hanley (2-1, 14-4) — All you need to know about Purdue football, there a sinkhole at Ross-Ade stadium. The Hawks don’t fall in it Saturday. Iowa 27, Purdue 7

Todd Brommelkamp (2-1, 12-6) — If this game plays out even remotely close to the way Iowa’s last two road games have, fans of both teams will be rooting for the Ross-Ade Stadium sinkhole by halftime. Iowa 24, Purdue 12

IOWA STATE AT TEXAS

Morehouse — I think I ate some of a Bevo at the Lakeville McDonald’s last weekend. Texas 42, ISU 24

Hlas — I love college football team names. Cyclones. Longhorns. Blue Hens. Banana Slugs. And, of course, the McRibs. Texas 38, ISU 31

Davis — I can’t decide if the Cyclone fans in my timeline were more mad at their team losing in such brutal fashion twice, or at the (correct) people pointing out the performances showed growth. Texas 31, ISU 24

Malicki — Seventh grade was a rough one for me. I changed schools, puberty was unkind and I constantly burned my neck with my curling iron solidifying my nickname: Hickey Malicki. The experience built resiliency, and that’s what I hope for Iowa State this year. Texas 45, ISU 38

Hanley — After blowing back-to-back leads in the fourth quarter, the Cyclones finally put it together for 60 minutes. ISU messes with Texas and wins. ISU 37, Texas 30

Brommelkamp — The “Don’t mess with Texas” slogan isn’t the only time the words “mess” and “Texas” belong together these days. ISU 38, Texas 35

OHIO STATE AT WISCONSIN

Morehouse — Wisconsin Wife has been glopping on the war paint all week for this one. Think “The Joker,” the one played by Cesar Romero, not the cool, scary Heath Ledger one. OSU 24, Wisconsin 14

Hlas  — How can the football season go by so quickly at the same time the presidential campaign is crawling to an end? OSU 27, Wisconsin 16

Davis — Big Ten title game preview, maybe? The stakes in this one are much higher for the Buckeyes, so we’ll see a no-holds-barred approach from Urban Meyer. Ohio State 37, Wisconsin 31

Malicki — Big Ten sure is looking good these days. At least that’s what my 10-year-old daughter says. OSU 20, Wisconsin 17

Hanley — The last time Sconnie beat Ohio State was 2010, I was there and stormed the field in red and white bibs. I will not be there this year, therefore Bucky will not win. OSU 24, Wisconsin 14

Brommelkamp — Their governor isn’t the only thing most people in Wisconsin will have a hard time recalling by the time this game kicks off Saturday night. OSU 28, Wisconsin 17
