Iowa State-TCU predictions

Line:Iowa State -3.5

Marc Morehouse — It feels like weather-wise, Iowa State’s season has been “Twister.” Watch out for swimming or flying cows in Ames. Iowa State 27, TCU 24

Mike Hlas — I’m still waiting on the explanation as to why Eric Church was ESPN College GameDay’s guest picker three weeks ago in Ames. Iowa State 28, TCU 20

Jeff Johnson — This is an 11 a.m. game, which is probably a good thing considering everything. Iowa State 28, TCU 21

Beth Malicki — My research shows the horned toad is a terrible pet. But I do recommend Bearded Dragons. Our Griffin lives under two lamps, eats live crickets and likes to sleep on our shoulders. Iowa State 31, TCU 24

Ben Visser — I’m not going to pick Iowa State to win another game until the Cyclones prove they have their “details” figured out. TCU 17, Iowa State 14

Todd Brommelkamp — I used up all my creativity on the Iowa blurb. Iowa State 33, TCU 28
