Louisville Cardinals(-3.5) at N.C. State Wolfpack

The Wolfpack have played well as of late which includes a win at Florida State. The strength of the Wolfpack is their ability to get after the quarterback. Louisville is basically a one man show, but what a show! Lamar Jackson makes the Cardinals dangerous against most any team they play. N.C.State’s ability to get after the quarterback makes the difference in this game.

Prediction: Wolfpack 27  Cardinals 24

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-14.5) at North Carolina Tar Heels

The only thing that makes me question this game at all would be the uncertain status of Irish quarterback Brandon Wimbush who threw 3 touchdown passes last week. Even with that concern, I do not see the Heels even being competitive in this game. The Heels only win was over Old Dominion and last week’s performance against Georgia Tech tells us all we need to know about this game.

Prediction: Irish 38  Tar Heels 16

Penn State Nittany Lions (-14.5) at Northwestern Wildcats

This game will come down to Northwestern’s ability to block Penn State’s front seven and the Wildcats just aren’t very good up front. The Wildcats, on paper, should be a much better team than what they are. I like Penn State a lot in this one.

Prediction: Nittany Lions 31  Wildcats 13

Maryland Terrapins at Ohio State Buckeyes (-30)

The Buckeyes are offensively great against mediocre competition and that is what the Terrapins are. Maryland has shown some capability on offense, but I like the Buckeyes here.

Prediction: Buckeyes 44  Terrapins 10

Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Clemson Tigers (-21.5)

Wake Forest is a solid team, but Clemson is one of the best teams in the country and I find it hard to believe that Wake can hang in this game for more than a half.

Prediction: Tigers 45  Demon Deacons 20

Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines (-10)

Michigan has questions at quarterback, but the defense is one of the best in the nation. The Spartans are just an average team this year and the Wolverines should roll at home.

Prediction: Wolverines 31  Spartans 13

California Golden Bears at Washington Huskies (-27)

Cal has played well so far this year and are capable of keeping this game close for a half. In the end, the Huskies will pull away and win this game, but my question is the point spread and I am taking the Bears to cover.

Prediction: Huskies 44  Golden Bears 20

Oregon State Beavers at USC Trojans (-34)

The Trojans look to be a very overrated team right now and Oregon State is just not very good. I like to Trojans to end this one early.

Prediction: USC 55  Beavers 16

West Virginia Mountaineers at TCU Horned Frogs (-13)

I think the Mountaineers can hang for awhile, but in the end, the Horned Frogs will prove why they are a Top 10 team and National Title contender.

Prediction: Horned Frogs 44  Mountaineers 27

LSU Tigers at Florida Gators (-3)

The Tigers are a bad football team and the Gators always seem to find a way to win.

Prediction: Gators 31  Tigers 17

Iowa State Cyclones at Oklahoma Sooners (-28)

Oklahoma is just way too strong for the Cyclones here. Look for Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield to put up huge numbers in this one.

Prediction: Sooners 56  Cyclones 24

Alabama Crimson Tide (-26.5) at Texas A&M

The Aggies should be undefeated, but they aren’t and Coach Kevin Sumlin is on the hot-seat. This game gives him a chance to get off it, but he won’t.

Prediction: Tide 37  Aggies 17

Miami(Fla) Hurricanes (-3) at Florida State Seminoles

The Seminoles’ offensive line is a huge problem and I look for the Canes to take huge advantage of it.

Prediction: Hurricanes 31  Seminoles 21
