8:16 am
>> refugees are fleeing the disaster that was caused by the obama-clinton foreign-policy that has led to the rise of radical islam throughout the middle east. >> it only exists when these radical terrorist groups had a safe haven from which to operate. alyx: the candidates were also asked who would be the first person they would call if another terrorist attack happened in the u.s. here is how they responded. >> the very first call, you get on your knees and make a call to god because you better have his help. >> the activation system, which is usually going to be through homeland security. you have already got your cascade of activities in place. >> the first thing i would do, honestly, is fall to my knees

8:18 am
frank: that is right. by the most part, the end of next week we will have most of the snow out of here. waking up this morning, it is cold, clarion three above zero. where it is the coldest is where they received the most snow. 24 and the metro. down around ottumwa and lamoni, mid-to-upper 20's. they did not see the snow we did in the metro and up to the north so that is why it is a little bit warmer. look at the wind chills, for below in candlearia and -- in clarion. we do have clear skies out there that are not helping us much because we call it radiation cooling. we are losing the heating of the day overnight to the atmosphere because we do not have the
8:19 am
as we head throughout the rest of the afternoon, the wind chills are going to be a concern. the air temperature stay in the 20's but the wind chills, five degrees by this evening. the snow well off to the east. we are starting to's -- starting to clear out. on the backside, we will see wind switching more out of the south, and that will mean or temperatures by next week. not much in the way of cloud cover, but very cold, with tonight being the coldest night we have seen in several. 26 degrees, your forecast high. tonight, nine degrees, the coldest we have seen since march 5. sunday, 33.
8:20 am
the next chance of rain looks to be on thanksgiving and into friday, but temperatures will rebound back into the 50's. andy: coming up in the morning sports, we will preview the college football games for iowa
8:21 am
practicing their patience. america's never been a country of quitters. it's not who we are. we don't ignore threats like climate change. we face our problems head-on. with american-made clean energy, we can end our dependence on foreign oil... spark new innovation... and create millions of new jobs. solving our climate crisis starts with 50% clean energy by 2030. so, what are we waiting for? andy: it is going to be down to just the blowing snow later on today, but why not get out and enjoy a hawkeye football game as
8:22 am
iowa wraps up the home portion of their season at home against perdue. it is going to be interesting. for the first time since 1991 the hawkeyes have played a snow game at kinnick. they are going to rely heavily on the guy pounding the ball on the ground, and they have had a bevy this year. jordan canzeri, had his moment. most recently leshun daniels , junior has stepped up to fill the void and carry the rope. >> the one thing i would say about that whole group that has been most impressive to me is just the way they have picked each other up. somebody goes down, the next guy grabs the rope and does a great job with it. we are really pleased with all of the group. andy: getting closer and closer to kick time. iowa and perdue a little later on today live on espn2 right after 11:00. the big ten championship is
8:23 am
if iowa wins today they will clinch the west division title and a spot in indianapolis. iowa got 10,000 tickets. there were more than 13,000 requests through the ticket office which means there are at least 3000 unhappy hawkeyes. anybody that has a priority point level above 110 will probably get their tickets filled. below that, you better start looking at the secondary market. iowa state finishes the season with two games on the road, the first today against kansas state. it always seems like the wildcats find a way. that one play, that one moment that ksu makes a difference and ends up beating iowa state. paul rhoads has never beat bill schneider. will today be the day? the coach says maybe, if some of his young guns start making big plays. >> i think it is just clutch players making big plays, plays that alan lazard is capable of
8:24 am
making, i believe joel lanning is capable of making. we have to get those guys making those plays at the right time. andy: 11:00 is also the kick time for the cyclones and wildcats. the game is live on fox sports one. last night was supposed to be a moment of history, a coronation as dowling catholic clinched their third straight title. no team has ever done that. instead, it was hurry up and wait times. the snow forced the postponement of all three championship games yesterday, so dowling-cedar rapids kennedy was pushed back to monday and instead they were practicing their patience. >> there is nothing we can control about it so we just try to move on and do what is best for our team. >> it is disappointing but will give us another three days to prepare for cedar rapids kennedy. it is a very good team and i think it will benefit us that much more. andy: 1a, 2a, and 4a on the turf
8:25 am
beginning with iowa state and regina western christian at 11:00, spirit lake mount vernon at 2:00, and dowling at 7:00. those games will not be televised but you can watch the live stream online at for more information. on the ice last night iowa wild , playing host to the team from cleveland, the lake erie monsters. a great goal by grayson downing to tie the game up, but the wild fell short, 3-2. if you are a hockey fan who went last night or did not go, you can get tickets to another game in december for free. because the weather was so bad, iowa wild decided anyone could turn in a ticket for a ticket of equal or lesser value for december for any home game. a smart move for the folks in charge.
8:26 am
we will have all of your college it's been her fight for twenty years. something is wrong with our healthcare system and it needs to be fixed. then, it was about health reform and getting eight million kids covered. now, it's about stopping republicans from repealing obamacare, and taking on insurance companies to bring down drug prices. i'm not going to let any family be deprived of healthcare. i'm not going to let the republicans rip up obamacare and throw it away.

we are very timely right -- we have hy-vee chef andrew. we are very timely right now. >> we have turkey we are going to talk about, ways of infusing flavor. alyx: nobody wants to be the one with a dry turkey. >> we start by making a dry brine. this is a simpler, easy way to do it, less mess and it will give you nice results. we will take some kosher salt, dried rosemary, brown sugar, they leaves ,thyme, dried orange peel, and black pepper. you can mix this up if you prefer lemon peel. it is really what you prefer. alyx: your particular flavor.
8:40 am
rub it all over the turkey. be generous and put it in all of the cavities. alyx: get hands on with that turkey >>. once that is done, we will place it in the fridge for eight to 16 hours to let the flavors get in. alyx: the longer in the fridge, probably better. >> it is going to lock in that moisture. once that is done, you will want to take the turkey out of the fridge and rinse it under some cool water to get rid of the salt. we will make an herb butter mixture to put on the turkey as well. i just got some fresh sage. we have some rosemary we are going to throw in here, and some thyme. can you smell those? alyx: i do.
8:41 am
>> these are great flavors to infuse with the turkey. we are going to throw that in with some butter and peppery cap, and -- paprika, and mix that up. when the turkey cooks, the butter will melt and the flavor will go into the meat. another way to use this is if you take the turkey and you lift up the skin like that. alyx: this is a good trick that you were saying maybe everybody does not know about. >> you might need to use a paring knife to release the skin from the turkey, and we will put some of this butter down in their. you massage that into the turkey breast. another way to make your turkey really flavorful. alyx: work that in.
8:42 am
>> exactly. you can put some butter on the outside of the turkey as well. heat the oven to 325 degrees. depending on how big the turkey is will tell you how long to cook it. you can go to and we have a chart. a really great turkey for thanksgiving. alyx: and he will be the hit of that thanksgiving dinner. chef andrew, thank you for
