Ray Crawford

Arkansas-Little Rock isn’t done yet. The Trojans have one more upset left in them.

Shae Peppler

I want to pick Arkansas-Little Rock, but I think Little Rock’s big stones won’t be enough against Iowa State. The Cyclones will take care of the Trojans.

Ken Bikoff

Iowa State’s experience and balance will be too much for an Arkansas-Little Rock team that won’t go quietly. Look for lots of points and a Cyclones win.

Jordan Cornette

There’s a lot of offense in this one. Cream rises to the top, and there’s no answer for Georges Niang.
