Games Noon
Oregon vs. Stanford
Patrick Says: Stanford ruined Oregon's chances at a national championship berth last season and it finds itself in the position to play spoiler again. Unfortunately for the Cardinal, the Ducks are averaging an absurd 56 points a game and show little to no signs of slowing down. I think Oregon, which has virtually destroyed nearly all its opponents in its eight wins this season, makes Stanford -- which lost to a bad Utah squad -- its ninth victim. The Ducks simply can't be stopped on offense and the Cardinal don't have the firepower to keep up with their foe to the north. Oregon 49 Stanford 28
Oklahoma vs. Baylor
Andrew Says: I like this matchup a lot for Oklahoma. I think the Sooners have the athletes necessary to at least compete with Baylor's potent attack. Yes, the Bears are putting up points at a ridiculous rate, but this will be the first time this season that they'll face a defense with athletes of a similar level to the ones they possess on offense. But Oklahoma just doesn't have the weapons necessary on offense to score with Bryce Petty and co. Quarterback play will be the difference here. Baylor 44 Oklahoma 38
LSU vs. Alabama
Noon Says: I don't like the thought of picking Les Miles over Nick Saban in a big game and maybe I am just seeing this through my "Alabama is just not as dominant as in years past" glasses or potentially my "Les Miles already had his screw up against Ole Miss" monocle. LSU has won this game in 2010 and 2011 as an underdog and while neither time were they a 12-point dog, I just have a hunch that it is the right time to bet on the corn dog underdog. LSU 24 Alabama 21
Auburn vs. Tennessee
AndyMac Says: I'm probably going to have to take a shower after making this comment but Auburn and head coach Gus Malzahn are the real deal. After a disastrous 2012, the Tigers have bounced back in a big way and have returned among the elite in the BCS top 10. Their rushing attack, led by Nick Marshall and Tre Mason, average 306.2 yards per game, which is sixth best in the NCAA. Their opponent this week, Tennessee, is 0-4 against top 10 teams this season. Despite having the home crowd in their corner, I have a hard time seeing the Vols pull off the upset with a freshman QB. Auburn 34 Tennessee 19
Nebraska vs. Michigan
Tom Says: The Nebraska Cornhuskers visit the Michigan Wolverines Saturday in what promises to be an intriguing game. While both teams are unranked, they have plenty to play for in the "Big House". Nebraska is just one game behind Michigan State in the legends division and a victory over TSUN would set up a showdown game the following week with the Spartans. Michigan, having been embarrassed by Michigan State last week is out to salvage their reputation and their season. The Wolverine's Devin Gardner will be striving to make up for last week's poor performance as will his offensive line. Nebraska will test the Wolverine defense with Tommy Armstrong and Ameer Abdullah, but in the end, I think Michigan's offensive line, having a chip on their shoulder, will outperform Nebraska's 9th ranked rushing defense. Michigan 35 Nebraska 27
BYU vs. Wisconsin
Marc Says: It has been quite a turnaround for the BYU Cougars since that disappointing loss in the season opener to Virginia. BYU comes in winners of five straight and six out of seven and they are doing it with a rushing attack that is averaging over 250 yards per game. Wisconsin, however, has been even more impressive on the ground, rolling up 287 yards per game. While this is a BYU team that has steadily improved, this will be a different monster than anything they have faced so far this season and I think the Badgers can grind out a win here. Wisconsin 31 BYU 21
Penn State vs. Minnesota
Virginia Tech vs. Miami (Fla.)
UCLA vs. Arizona
Kansas St. vs. Texas Tech
