I guess with only those two to choose from I would go with Iowa. Especially since my son-in-law works at the hospital there (in the computer area), and has had season tickets since they were married over 8 years ago. Personally, I prefer the Badgers, but that could be because I am from Wisconsin.
If there is one team that I hate more than any other team in the country, that would be Missouri. I can't wait for that Thursday night game. If I didn't have to work the next morning I would go down to Columbia.

My Iowa friends, while yes, you will be the second real challenge for PSU this season, I can say with much confidence that while I do not see the thrashing Syracuse or Temple recieved, I do not see many happy HAWKS fans Saturday Night.
Sorry about that Husker pounding crack. That was uncalled for. But we are excited about our Tigers here in Mizzou and look forward to a spirited contest in a couple of weeks. After many years of being a push-over for the Big 12 elite, it is hard to contain our enthusiasm at being competitive with the traditional powers of the conference. Being picked to finish fourth or fifth in the XII North has also created a bit of a chip on our collective shoulders this year.
Come on down Husker fans. Columbia is a fun place for football now days and being a nationaly televised game will make it even more so.
