boring marriage proposals. and there are creative marriage proposals. we can agree on that, right? well, we have a really creative one that happened thanksgiving day in johnston. it was such a crazy idea -- the cops even had to get involved. nats - cop asking for id jeff schulte is really in trouble this time. he's pulled over by johnston police for the second time in a year. except this time, you're looking at a set-up. this police body cam video captures a very clever plan between jeff and johnston police. nats - more interaction between jeff and officer a year ago at thanksgiving time it was for real. jeff was actually ticketed for speeding right in front of his girlfriend's parent's house when he was going to meet them for
10:14 pm
first time. her whole family saw it. jeff was embarrassed. so a year later, when jeff decided to propose to jenna, he figured johnston p.d. might do him a favor. sb jeff "wanted to do something crazy." "a lot of timing involved, i was nervous." he and officer matt chiles, the same guy who gave him the real ticket a year earlier, worked it all out. nats - you were doing 46 in a 35 a bogus speeding violation. jeff was even pretend handcuffed behind his car. and jenna was finally asked to get out of the car too. nats from cop -- would you get out and check this merchandise to see if it's stolen. he has a theft warrant. the look on jenna's face proves she has no idea what's going on, and the next few moments are priceless. nats - will you marry me? her reaction up until they hug sb - it took my emotions

jack: drivers beware-- there's something new to navigate in the metro today. the new interstate exit off i-80 at grand prairie parkway is officially open. but this interchange is something we've
10:18 pm
before. stephanie: it's called a diverging diamond interchange. here's a simulated overhead look. it seems confusing until you drive it. the biggest change is you don't have to cross oncoming traffic to get onto the interstate. engineers say it's a much safer way to manage traffic. the one drawback is that if you accidentally get off at this intersection and want to get back on the interstate, you have to get off on the local road and turn around. stephanie: the new interchange opened at noon today. developers say it will relieve traffic onb amjor roads like jordan creek parkway, university and hickman. work began two years ago, and cost 50 million dollars. here's what drivers are saying. luke miller driver "i was just testing it. so i came south to get on and head east. that was pretty easy. i mean, there's two stoplights, but it's pretty smooth." stephanie: the new interchange is also part of a much bigger development project... called "kettlestone" that's being built along grand

are iowa sport jordan/bam: fresh off their emerald coast classic championship, the 5-0 iowa state cyclones return home to the friendly confines of hilton coliseum where they are an astounding 62-4 since the start of the 20-11 season. but the clones had to watch out for those pesky bison... isu hosting north dakota state, new football coach matt campbell taking in hilton magic. right off the bat, georges niang finds jameel mckay who slams it home for the clones. next time down, it's monte morris finding naz mitrou-long who cashes in the three ball. later on scary moment here, niang hits his knee with one of the bison players, he was down and hilton went silent. but he'd walk it off and return later on.
10:21 pm
bison cash in the triple to go up 30-27! but isu closes the half on a 9-0 run. the steal by mitrou-long, he takes it in for two of his 11. then monte morris finds abdel nader for three, nader finished with a game high 21. and then it's mckay bookending the half with a dunk! he had 15 and a career high 19 boards. all 5 starters score in double figures. isu tames the bison, 84-64. jordan/bam: just one day after his introductory press conference, matt campbell is wasting no time trying to turn isu around... many will say it can't happen, isu coaches have tried and failed in the past... but turnarounds can happen! tcu had four 10 win seasons in history before gary patterson, they've had 10 since 2001. baylor was 18-102 in its first 15 seasons of big 12 play, since art briles took over, they're 64-36 with 3 ten win seasons, a 4th looming and 2 big 12 titles. so when people ask why iowa

relishes the challenge! "you see what some of the great coaches in this conference have done. bill snyder has done a great job obviously at kansas state. it's been done. and again it's about having the foundation around you to get this thing done and we've got a great foundation around this program. so to me, that's the great challenge, i love a challenge, i love to build and that's why i knew this was the right place for matt campbell." jordan/bam: iowa will hit the field in indy saturday with the big ten coach of the year. kirk ferentz swept both the coaches and media vote. now ferentz and the boys have to gear up for their toughest opponent of the year... alex giamio has more from iowa city. "(alex giaimo) the goal from day one for the hawkeyes has been winning a big ten championship. now they'll get their chance on saturday against michigan state in indianapolis. two teams that pretty much match up dead even on paper. (kirk ferentz) in a lot of people's eyes we weren't supposed to be here right now so
10:23 pm
and cheek because it is important to us. it's not like we are out there just winging it. uh, we are probably the team that's not supposed to be there so you know, what the heck, let's go cut it loose and see what happens. (giaimo) ferentz will take his chances against a team with striking similarities to his own. both averaging about 33 points per game and dead even in turnover ratio. (henry kreiger-coble) top to bottom they are super experienced and the guys they have out there. i mean they are big guys, i mean they look like an nfl d-line, they are just huge, atheltic, and explosive guys, so that's what makes them good. (austin blythe) yea they've got a lot of good athletes up front and they work to finish plays and we got to get after them to, you know, kind of neutralize that. (giaimo) ferentz and his hawkeyes know that it's not a matter of stopping the spartans but more a matter of containing them. (cj beathard) it's hard to play a perfect game but we are going to have to play well and execute. we can't make many mistakes you know they are a good team but i think we are a good team, as well. (kirk ferentz) they are going to make plays. they are going to make plays offensively, defensively, special teams. and how we respond to those things really is going to dictate the success that we have or not. (alex giaimo) this will be iowa's first big ten championship appearance. kickoff at indianapolias will be at 7:17. in iowa city with your hawkeye
