I am stumbling down the stretch with a 3-3 mark last week. An emotional loss to Nebraska and my tank is nearly at E. That being said, I must forge on and pick these games even though the highlight will be Moxgiving. Some great games for the weekend so fill your glass, sit back, enjoy the time off and watch me nail a 6-0 week.
Ohio State (-15) at Michigan
At first glance, this spread seems low. At second glance, it’s really low. Michigan doesn’t match up well here, but throw in the rivalry and they could hang for a bit. Michigan’s offense can’t score enough to win.
Ohio State 27 Michigan 13
Clemson (+5) at South Carolina
These are 2 teams that I have woefully predicted all year. I don’t see that trend ending because I am just not sure. Clemson has the team to win this, but on the road vs the OBC, I think South Carolina will pull this out.
South Carolina 26 Clemson 17
Texas A&M (+4.5) at Missouri
The former Big 12 teams match up in a huge game that SEC loyalists assumed would always be irrelevant. These 2 teams weren’t supposed to be able to compete in the SEC. Well, here they are and Missouri’s D will hassle Manziel all day.
Missouri 30 Texas A&M 24
UCLA (+3.5) at USC
The one game in LA that the fans pretend to care about and actually show up. UCLA had a near miracle comeback vs. Arizona State but fell short. UCLA in week 2 probably would have been favored by 17 vs. a Kiffin lead Trojan squad, but times have changed. Coach O adds another win to his resume that Pat Haden just can’t ignore anymore.
USC 32 UCLA 31
Alabama (+10.5) at Auburn
Auburn’s quick turnaround has made this one of the more surprising games of the year. Saban has lost a game in each of the last few Novembers, but I think they get by and ultimately leave Ohio State on the outside.
Alabama 27 Auburn 14
Fresno State (-7) at San Jose State
No clue here, but I know Fresno and NIU are battling for that automatic BCS bid. NIU is in position to keep it but this will remove all doubt. San Jose state has a… well, I have no idea, I am just picking blind here.
San Jose State 33 Fresno State 30 (OT)
Year to date record: 51-26 (3-10 Upset Special)
