Even still, Ashton Kutcher's "College GameDay" pick for Saturday's Cy-Hawk matchup should come as no surprise to anyone in Iowa.
"I'm taking the Iowa Hawkeyes to win this football game all day long," the Cedar Rapids-born actor proclaimed on set outside Jack Trice Stadium.
While ESPN analysts Chris Fallica, David Pollack and Desmond Howard picked the 10th-ranked Cyclones to beat the 9th-ranked Hawkeyes, Kutcher wasn't alone in his decision.
"I wanted to show it to the Iowa State fans because they haven't seen it in a while. Get a real good look at it. Iowa's won it five straight years. It's [Iowa] State's turn to win it," Lee Corso said while pointing to the Cy-Hawk Trophy.
"Forget about it. Hawkeyes in an upset," he concluded to a round of boos from the fans.
Iowa and Iowa State kick off at 3:30 p.m. on Local 5.
