Georgia Tech at Clemson(-14)
Georgia Tech has lost two games, both by a point, and the Tigers are coming off an upset loss to the Syrcause Orangemen. Georgia Tech is one of the most underrated teams in the nation and will keep this game close.
Prediction: Clemson 31 Georgia Tech 28
Washington State(-3) at Arizona
The Cougars defense was dominant in a shutout win over the Colorado Buffaloes. Arizona has been a surprise team in the PAC 12, being led by the surprising play of quarterback Khalil Tate, who has been on fire the last month. This will be a close, hard-fought game and I am picking the home team in the upset.
Prediction: Arizona 27 Washington State 24
Penn State at Ohio State(-7)
Ohio State looks, at least offensively, like they are back on track since the Oklahoma disaster. My question is can they do it against a big-time defense like Penn State? Since the Oklahoma loss the Buckeyes haven’t really played anybody, so your guess is as good as mine. I like the Nittany Lions to take this game.
Prediction: Penn State 27 Ohio State 24
Florida State(-3) at Boston College
The Seminoles are in disarray and the Eagles have recently beaten Louisville. To me this game is a tough one to pick, but I am going to lean towards the Seminole here, and I am not confident about it.
Prediction: Florida State 21 Boston College 17
Tulane at Memphis(-10)
Memphis is one of the most overlooked teams in the nation. Tulane is not a bad team and the game they played against South Florida last week showed that. I look for Tulane to keep it close for a half and then Memphis will pull away.
Prediction: Memphis 31 Tulane 16
Tennessee at Kentucky(-4)
I think Kentucky’s program is headed in the right direction, while Tennessee is headed in the wrong direction.
Prediction: Kentucky 27 Tennessee 13
Louisville(-3) at Wake Forest
Lamar Jackson gives the Cards a legit shot to win in almost any game he plays in and this game will be no exception.
Prediction: Louisville 28 Wake Forest 27
Miami(Fla)(-20) at North Carolina
The Canes will finally have an easy one.
Prediction: Miami 37 North Carolina 14
Oklahoma State(-7) at West Virginia
The Cowboys should win but the Mountaineers will give them all they can handle.
Prediction: Oklahoma State 38 West Virginia 33
Kansas State(-24) at Kansas
Kansas State will win this one easy.
Prediction: Kansas State 44 Kansas 3
Utah(-3) at Oregon
I will give three points and take the Utes here.
Prediction: Utah 31 Oregon 24
N.C. State at Notre Dame(-7.5)
The Wolfpack are an underrated team and I think they will give the Irish trouble.
Prediction: Notre Dame 34 N.C. State 27
TCU(-6.5) at Iowa State
Iowa State is an improved team and will trouble TCU. I like TCU here though in a close one.
Prediction: TCU 31 Iowa State 23
Texas Tech at Oklahoma(-20)
Oklahoma giving 20 points is way too much here.
Prediction: Oklahoma 37 Texas Tech 24
