I’m gonna start doing a confidence meter for each game on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. Good luck.
#19 Oklahoma State(-12.5) @ Iowa State
Iowa State should have beaten Texas a few weeks ago. Then they got killed. Twice. Oklahoma State isn’t very good though.
MG: Oklahoma State*****
Line: Oklahoma State****
Wake Forest(+24) @ #7 Miami
Miami survived a scare from UNC and now needs to avoid looking ahead to FSU, a game I’m not excited about.
#25 Nebraska(-10) @ Minnesota
The Gophers got a nice win on the road against NW last week, but Nebraska has been playing well since the UCLA debacle.
#18 Louisville(-20.5) @ USF
Louisvilles undefeated season went up in flames against UCF last week, but they can still have a nice year. And they will get back on track against USF.
UConn(+23.5) @ #23 UCF
Coming off maybe the biggest win in program history, the Knights will try to keep themselves on the BCS track against a terrible, terrible UConn team.
Vandy(+17) @ #14 Texas A&M
Johnny is gonna play despite the shoulder injury. Vandy is coming off a big win but they need some serious firepower to keep up with the Ags.
Tennessee(+28) @ #1 Alabama
Bama is just murdering people. Tennessee finally got a big win. I’d be shocked if they scored more than 10 against Bama.
NC State(+32) @ #2 Florida State
I’d say look out for a letdown from the Noles but Jameis Winston has met every challenge so far.
#9 Clemson(-16.5) @ Maryland
Clemson got rocked. How do you come back from that? Playing Maryland helps.
Eastern Michigan(+31) @ #24 Northern Illinois
NIU keeps getting these ridiculous lines and keeps failing to cover. I’m taking the underdog this time.
#10 Texas Tech(+6.5) @ #17 Oklahoma
Undefeated Tech is a touchdown underdog on the road. No respect.
Duke(+13.5) @ #16 Virginia Tech
Classic offense vs defense showdown. VTs defense may be the best in America.
#6 Baylor(-35) @ Kansas
I’m going 5 star confidence on a 35-point spread. Kansas is that bad.
#20 South Carolina(+3) @ #5 Mizzou
Mizzou is the surprise of the year thus far and Carolina is coming off a loss to Tennessee and may not have Connor Shaw.
#12 UCLA(+23.5) @ #3 Oregon
The spread here is shocking. A matchup of top-12 teams and a 24 point spread. Holy crap.
FAU(+24) @ #11 Auburn
Auburn got Malzahn his signature win at Kyle Field last week, now it’s FAU. Letdown alert.
Penn State(+15) @ #4 Ohio State
After what I saw Stave do to Ohio State, I’m confident Hackenburg can mimic that and have a big day.
MG: Ohio State****
Line: Penn State****
#8 Stanford(-4) @ Oregon State
The Beavers are the most underrated team in America, but Stanford is back to playing Stanford style football, running and stopping the run.
#15 Fresno State(-7.5) @ San Diego State
Fresno’s last real test is this week, and this actually seems like a small spread. Someone knows more than me. But I’m used to that.
Good luck to all, thank Greenie later.
