I would have to go with SDSU and Kent. As much as I would love to win against Kansas and Missouri, that would fall more into the category of dream wins. Also starting 2-0 will be big for confidence before going on the road for two weeks.
I sure as hell wouldn't pick the first 2 games. We can win those without the guarantee. If we do lose those we still get the 2 guaranteed wins later in the season. I'd pick two road conference games (don't have schedule near me) and take my chances at home and against Iowa.
As long as we're picking "if" wins, I'll take Oklahoma and Texas, please. So what if they're not on our schedule this season? That just means that we'd have to beat one or the other in the Big Twelve Title Game--and the other in a Bowl. I can live with that.
