Alright, this week I think there's only one B12 team playing a ranked opponent, so that means we'll be covering the notorious Cy Hawk rivalry.  They used to play for this thing:

But I think they wised up and now play for something slightly less ugly.  

Anyway, this week's challenge is: 

How long will the longest TD be in yardage from scrimmage, and who will score it? 

The team that scores it is most important, so if you guess ISU and 50, and it's ISU and 51, you're very very close.  If you guessed IU and 50, you'll be placed behind every person that guessed ISU.  After that, it again goes to how close you were to the yardage.

Clear as mud?  Let the games begin.

You didn't have to pick that just because I used it as an example... :)

An even better half-assed answer would be:

"50"

Oh and I'm going to go with IU 33

But I sure hope ISU wins.  If the Birds in a Blender get a big win over their state rival, perhaps they won't be as likely to Iowa State my Horns!

That would practically be copy-catting.
We can't have stuff like that!

OK, in true half-ass fashion I'll try to tabulate results sometime in the next decade,  but in the meantime I'll turn this week's question back over to Gigem, unless someone else wants to jump in...
