Predictions

Line:Iowa -3

Marc Morehouse — Other animals that would work for a Minnesota-Iowa rivalry: squirrel, possum and robin. Iowa 27, Minnesota 24

Mike Hlas — If Iowa beats Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin will feel happy and Minnesota will feel sad. You know how everyone else will feel? With their fingers. Iowa 28, Minnesota 21

Jeff Johnson — I rowed a boat ... once. Iowa 21, Minnesota 20

Beth Malicki — The last time Minnesota won at Iowa our refrigerator was a solid appliance. Today a chair holds the door closed and I got food poisoning this week because it can’t keep the milk cold enough. Minnesota, 27, Iowa 20

Ben Visser — I hope P.J. Fleck’s rowboat is sturdy enough to carry a bronze pig back to Minneapolis. Minnesota 31, Iowa 21

Todd Brommelkamp — Minnesota may be the better team but we’ve all seen this act before. Iowa 27, Minnesota 21
