A huge scandal is currently rocking the college basketball world, resulting in the arrest of four basketball coaches. Will it translate over into a college football scandal? Anyways, here are this week's picks.
#16 Washington State 36, #5 USC 35: I thought long and hard about this one and how USC will be greatly tested on the road against Luke Falk and the Cougars. Falk has a 76.9 completion percentage along with 1,378 passing yards, 14 touchdowns, and only one interception.
#10 Wisconsin 35, Northwestern 10: Wisconsin's easy ride through the Big Ten West continues as their stout defense will be the answer here. Plus, the game's in Madison, where it's never an easy place to play.
#2 Clemson 24, #12 Virginia Tech 16: They said that Louisville would be a tough road test for Clemson and their defense. Clemson blew them out, 47-21. Now experts are saying this game will be a tough road test for the Tigers. Expect Clemson's proven defense to get the job done here as well.
#13 Auburn 30, #24 Mississippi State 21: Running back Kerryon Johnson will be a big factor in this game as Auburn continues to fly under the radar in the SEC West.
#15 Oklahoma State 42, Texas Tech 31: Expect Mason Rudolph to rebound nicely from last week's game. The Cowboys will beat an unproven Red Raiders squad here.
Upsets to Watch: Duke over #14 Miami, Vanderbilt over #21 Florida
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
