Let's get started!
#21 Southern Cal (7-3) at #16 UCLA (8-2)
Last year: USC (-16’) over Ucla, 50-0. Talk about revenge. UCLA was humiliated last year at USC but first-year coach Jim Mora is looking for his Bruins to win five straight for the first time since 2005. UCLA is averaging 446.3 yards per game on offense. QB Brett Hundley had 261 yards on 18-of-21 passing in their 44-36 win at Washington State. QB Matt Barkley leads an explosive offense with two of the top receivers in the nation in Marqise Lee and Robert Woods. Defensively, UCLA is near the top of the Pac-12 in takeaways with 25, including 13 picks and USC has 26 turnovers. UCLA is 6-2 ATS L8 home games. College odds: USC -3. Total: 66..
NC State (6-4) at #9 Clemson (9-1)
Last year: NC STATE (+7.5) over Clemson, 37-13. Clemson (6-1 ACC) can share the ACC Atlantic Division crown by beating the Wolfpack. This won’t be an easy task as NC State has already defeated Florida State. Clemson wasn’t tested last week when they pounded on Maryland, 45-10, with their fifth-string quarterback. This week, they face Mike Glennon, who is second to Clemson’s Tajh Boyd for most passing yards in the ACC. NC State routed Wake Forest last week, 37-6, rushing for 170 yards, and they qualified for a bowl. NC State is 8-3 ATS L11 in November. College Lines: Clemson is a 6.5-point favorite. Total: 64.
#25 Texas Tech (7-3) at #24 Oklahoma State (6-3)
Last year: Oklahoma State (-20’) over TEXAS TECH, 66-6. Texas Tech is looking for some consistency. Last week, they needed overtime to beat Kansas at home, 41-34. They are also looking for revenge after getting destroyed at home, 66-6. QB Seth Doege passed for 476 yards and three TDs. Oklahoma State could go back with Clint Chelf at quarterback, after they beat West Virginia, 55-34 at home. But Wes Lunt and QB JW. Walsh are also expected to be cleared, which could create a quarterback controversy. At 7-3, 4-3 in the Big 12, Texas Tech is looking to finish strong. Oklahoma State is 22-10 ATS L32 overall. NCAAF Odds: Oklahoma State is a 10-point favorite. Total: 72.5.
#13 Stanford (8-2) at #1/2 Oregon (10-0)
Last year: Oregon (+3’) over STANFORD, 53-30. Stanford will try to end Oregon’s BCS Championship hopes with an upset road win. The Cardinal might have defense to at least slow down Oregon. Nobody can really stop their offense. But Stanford holds opponents to a conference-best 320.7 yards per game, leading the nation by limiting teams to 58.8 yards per game on the ground. QB Kevin Hogan, a redshirt freshman, had a tough test though he played well last week in their 27-23 home win over Oregon State. He completed 22 of 29 for 254 yards an three TDs. Oregon will look to use their speed led by RB Kenjon Barner. Stanford is 15-5-1 ATS L21 conference games. College Football Odds: Oregon is a 20.5-point favorite. Total: 65.5.
#1/2 Kansas State (9-0) at Baylor (4-5)
Last year: KANSAS STATE (+3’) over Baylor, 36-35. KState (10-0, 7-0) is atop the BCS rankings just ahead of Oregon and Notre Dame so they cannot afford a loss. Collin Klein leads all quarterbacks with 19 rushing touchdowns to lead the Wildcats, who lead the Big 12 with 2,136 rushing yards. RB John Hubert leads the way with 783 yards and 12 touchdowns. Baylor (4-5, 1-5) is having a disappointing season but they can be a dangerous opponent with the second-best offense in the nation, averaging 564 yards per game. But defensively they are atrocious. Kansas State is 5-0 ATS L5 in November. Football Odds: Kansas State is a 12-point favorite. Total: 75.
