Most of the state is gearing up for the Iowa-Iowa State game this weekend; the animals at Blank Park Zoo are no exception.
The Japanese Macaques say you might want to place your bets on the University of Iowa this year. The monkeys picked the Hawkeyes as the team who will come out on top this weekend.
You may be thinking… why would I listen to a monkey? Well, the Japanese Macaques are old professionals. They correctly selected Iowa State to win last year, even when college polls and experts favored Iowa.
