Predictions

Line: Iowa State -6.5

Marc Morehouse — Iowa State should make this the Telephone Trophy game (you know, the old traveling trophy with Mizzou that’s just sitting there). Why not? Hello? Iowa State 27, Texas 24

Mike Hlas — Texas’ primary color is burnt orange. You get that by mixing pale cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, cadmium red and a touch of burnt sienna. I learned that from “Breaking Bad.” Iowa State 28, Texas 21

Jeff Johnson — Does Texas bring Bevo to road games? If so, I hope he takes the proper exit out of the stadium. That could cause a problem. Iowa State 23, Texas 16

Beth Malicki — With the freezing forecast in Ames you might want to have indoor options before the game. Check out the giant Grant Wood murals hanging in the ISU library or make an ornament in 10 minutes at Ciccotti Art Glass. Iowa State 34, Texas 30

Ben Visser — The average high temperature in Austin in November is about 70 degrees. It’ll be half that in Ames. Iowa State 34, Texas 28
