AMES — A famous Hawkeye is coming to your city Cyclone fans — as a guest picker. 

Actor Ashton Kutcher was announced as the College GameDay guest picker ahead of Saturday’s historic CyHawk game between No.9 Iowa State and No.10 Iowa.

Kutcher, a University of Iowa alum, is best known for his work in the TV shows “That 70’s Show” and “Two and A Half Men.”

ESPN “College GameDay” host Rece Davis teased the guest picker on Thursday on Twitter, saying it could be an “all-timer” ahead of the first ever CyHawk showdown between two ranked teams.

The last time GameDay came to Ames in 2019, country music singer Eric Church, a North Carolina native with no ties to Iowa, Iowa State or Ames, was chosen.

The Iowa Corn CyHawk series game will kick-off at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.
