It's a big week around the state as we're all getting ready for the 2019 Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series!

The Iowa Football team travels to Iowa State this Saturday to to take on the Cyclones at Jack Trice Stadium. If you're not going to the game, you can catch all of the action on FS1, starting at 3 p.m.

The opening line on the game was basically even, but the early betting has now made Iowa State a 2.5 point underdog. Several local bookies have said they've taken some "very significant wagers" on Iowa earlier in the week.

If you ask me, I think it's a good bet to take the Hawks. This team is ready for this matchup, and I feel it will be hard for the Cyclones to score against this Iowa defense. My prediction is Iowa 31, Iowa State 10.

Iowa is 4-1 in its last five head to head matchups against Iowa State. The last time the two teams me was last year in Iowa City and the Hawks won that game 13-3.

The game starts at 3 p.m. this Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames.
