Games Noon
Baylor vs. Oklahoma St.
Andrew Says: Oklahoma State is a popular upset pick here, but I just don't see it happening. This game is a matchup of two high-powered offenses, but Baylor's is better. The fact that the game is in Stillwater makes me a little nervous about the pick, but I like that this isn't Baylor's first big game of the season. If it was, the prime-time environment might shake them, but this team has been there before, even if it was at home against Oklahoma. Bryce Petty will have a big day, and the Bears defense will be opportune and force a couple of key turnovers. Baylor 52 Oklahoma State 42
Texas A&M vs. LSU
Patrick Says: I've been on the LSU train since the beginning of this season despite the Tigers' three losses to Georgia, Ole Miss and, most recently, Alabama. We must live the choices we make, right? But really, I think Les Miles' crew can play with anyone and I think that's rather obvious seeing as they certainly have the talent to do so. The question is, however, can LSU actually beat a team it's capable of beating? The Tigers were in games against the Dawgs and the Rebels before letting those contests slip from their grasp. Against the Crimson Tide, LSU was competitive before crumbling in the second half. Their defense, which I thought was pretty good, simply couldn't get a stop when it desperately needed to and the offense sputtered during the final 30 minutes, getting outscored, 21-3. Now they have to play Johnny Manziel and one of the nation's most-explosive offenses. Sure, playing in Death Valley is hard. Really hard. But I think the Aggies will score points in Baton Rouge. A lot of them. Texas A&M 45 LSU 38
Missouri vs. Ole Miss
Tom Says: The Missouri Tigers visit Oxford (Miss.) to take on the Ole Miss Rebels this Saturday with a lot on the line. The Tigers need wins in this game against Ole Miss and again next week against Texas A&M to earn a trip to the SEC Championship game. Fortunate for the Tigers, QB James Franklin will return after missing six weeks since his last start when Missouri dominated Georgia, in Athens, 41-26. Franklin and his talented offensive team members, WR L'Damian Washington, WR Doriel Green-Beckham and RB Henry Josey will be too much for the Rebels and will go on to win in a convincing fashion. Missouri 42 Ole Miss 24
Arizona St. vs. UCLA
Marc Says: This game will have huge implications on who will represent the Pac-12 South in the conference title game. The Sun Devils can punch their ticket with a victory and they are coming in playing some outstanding football, winners of five straight. UCLA is riding a three-game winning streak and has been battling through a tough stretch of the schedule which ends with next week's rivalry game against USC. I see an Arizona State team here that is peaking at the right time with the offense humming and the defense turning in better performances than UCLA's in recent weeks. I look for the Sun Devils to pull off a minor upset here Saturday. Arizona State 38 UCLA 35
Wisconsin vs. Minnesota
Noon Says: The Gophers have been a feel-good story since Jerry Kill has taken time off and focused on his health (while still remaining with the team). Minnesota has pulled off some improbable upsets and is mathematically still alive in the Legends Division race (albeit barely). Wisconsin however is the real deal and while Minnesota can hang its hat on wins against Penn State and Nebraska, the Badgers are an entirely different operation and should be able to run, run and run some more against a Gopher run defense that is mid-pack in the B1G. Wisconsin 38 Minnesota 17
Oregon vs. Arizona
AndyMac Says:I don't think the Ducks understand what the word "hospitality" means. Last season in Rich Rodriguez's first Pac 12 game, the quack attack crushed the Wildcats 49-0 and keep in mind, Rich Rod's boys averaged 38 points a game in 2012 so this was a significant butt-kicking. This year Arizona plays host and despite their current two game losing streak, should put up a better fight. Will they be able to force Marcus Mariota to throw his first pick in nearly 12 months? After what I saw during Rich Rod's tenure in Ann Arbor, I highly doubt it. Oregon 52 Arizona 24
Nebraska vs. Penn St.
Michigan vs. Iowa
BYU vs. Notre Dame
Boise St. vs. San Diego St.
