Last week saw some wild upsets in the college football world. Can we expect the same events to happen this week?
#8 Washington State 30, California 6: I would like to go with the shutout here. But, it's usually risky business trying to predict a shutout given that a team would have to not score AT ALL. Still, this game has potential for a shutout given that Mike Leach's squad has improved on defense.
#17 Michigan 17, Indiana 14: The Hoosiers like to utilize two quarterbacks in their system: Senior Richard Lagow and the more mobile Peyton Ramsey, who's a freshman. However, the Wolverines should score at least one defensive score in the game since their offense can't produce anything right now. Michigan has the best total defense in the country, yielding only 213 yards a game.
#7 Wisconsin 20, Purdue 10: In that same category, Wisconsin isn't too shabby, either. The Badgers yield 273.8 yards a game defensively. Keep an eye out for senior linebacker Leon Jacobs; he's a big help on that Wisconsin defense filled with speed and versatility.
#12 Oklahoma 45, Texas 35: They say that rivalry games tend to bring out the best of both sides, regardless of their records. This will certainly be the case as Texas will compete to the end of this game.
#13 USC 28, Utah 14: A crucial game in the Pac-12 South. Sam Darnold must show he's capable of being a franchise quarterback in the NFL, for he hasn't done that yet.
Oregon over #23 Stanford
Kansas State over #6 TCU
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
