house. they'll easily fill to their 179-customer capacity. 17:18-:23 "we reach it every time, absolutely, and turning away 60 to 70 people away a day, on iowa games." wallace says hawkeye fans come here for the food and drink specials, some of which happen right at kickoff...but there are rules. 15:42-:45 "you've got to be wearing iowa colors; you've got to be decked out all in black and gold." and this wheel...it's a big deal. 16:07-:14 "we have people chant for this. this is our wheel. every time iowa scores a touchdown, we spin our wheel for even more great drink specials, beer specials, 50 cent beers." wallace says it's games like the one being played today in indianapolis that can give her business a huge boost. the same goes for qdogs bbq, where catering orders for parties started coming in last week. 23:44-:46 "i think the biggest one today is 125 people." and to feed all those hungry hawkeyes? brisket, sausage, ribs, and pork shoulder. 23:29-: "today we've got 600 pounds total, that extra 200 was for the catering." and buckets of sides. 23:03-:06 "cheesy taters, beans, cole slaw, all that good stuff." like lucas oil stadium, it'll be a packed house here. coil says: "bring it on, and go hawks." in cedar rapids,

"that's correct." you understand the conundrum you have? "i look at it as a win-win. i'll be happier though if the spartans win." one of the more unique things you see in the parking lot is a hawkeye ambulance. where'd you come up with the idea? "a friend of ours was working at a firehouse and they had it up for sale and he said, 'hey guys lets put together a tailgating ambulance.' first we thought it was crazy and then we thought about it and said that'd be a great machine for tailgating." but you got to keep it under the speed limit? you can't go 90 like a real ambulance, right? "nope. we do not turn the lights on and don't speed." hawks and spartans are going at it today. why can't we just be friends? say something nice about the hawkeyes. "12-0, i appreciate that. i do." "you're the most well dressed people i've ever seen. everybody wears vests, khakis. looking sharp, looking sharp." time for a glance outside in downtown cedar rapids for the 32nd annual holiday delight parade, all part of the fire & ice festival. amid the dozens and

this game. msu is a 3 point favorite that could go either way. even teams both scoring about 33 a game. plus 14 turnover margin. look for this game to sway in special teams big return out of desmond. what other keys for an iowa victory connor cook throws a lot of 50-50 balls and desmond can contest those he may pick off one or two balls. i like their matchup mabin is a big corner. we are going to have to rattle connor cook somehow pressure on him. blitz to do that right? iowa is gonna have to go to some second level blitzing to get to cook. i don't think they get their with the front four. run the ball throw off play action too. we do this a msu team that is hot right now against the run. they stuffed ohio state so it is a big challenge with a good front seven to run the ball. now having said that i do think cj has to throw it a little than he has in the past. instead of 50/50 maybe 60/40 pass to run. their weakness is their defensive backs right? secondary thru the air especially the big play department. prediction 27-24 let's go marshall koehn last second field
