Ashton Kutcher gives his ESPN College GameDay prediction before Iowa vs. Iowa State football
The actor is a Cedar Rapids native, went to the University of Iowa, and made sure to include a "go Hawks" when announcing his status as College GameDay's guest picker.
But Kutcher put the final stamp on his Hawkeye endorsement while making his official celebrity pick during ESPN's show.
Kutcher picked Iowa football to come out on top vs. Iowa State in the 2021 Cy-Hawk contest, much to the disdain of the Ames crowd surrounding ESPN's College GameDay set.
Kutcher's pick only adds more fuel to the rivalry, much less Cyclone fans' displeasure with ESPN's choice of celebrity guest picker.
Kickoff for Saturday's Cy-Hawk game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. CT. The game will be aired on ABC.
