Predictions

Line: Iowa -5.5

Marc Morehouse — With this weather, I feel a little like Bruce Willis in “Armageddon.” Yeah, let’s fly a comet to Lincoln in a really cool toupee. Like Bruce Willis. Iowa 23, Nebraska 13

Mike Hlas — I’ve been to Lincoln on Thanksgiving night several times since Nebraska joined the Big Ten. I always head to the nearest Phillips 66 for a Colt 45 and Slim Jims. Iowa 24, Nebraska 17

Jeff Johnson — I’d feel so badly for our neighbors to the west if they don’t get to travel to a bowl game again this season. So ... Nebraska 21, Iowa 16

Beth Malicki — I hope this Black Friday you have fuzzy socks and a warm beverage in equal proportion to killer deals and close parking spots. Iowa 24, Nebraska 17

Ben Visser — Remember when Nebraska was a trendy pick to win the Big Ten West? Iowa 24, Nebraska 14

Todd Brommelkamp — Don’t ask for an explanation because there isn’t one. This doesn’t make any sense. Like, at all. Nebraska 20, Iowa 17
