The Spartans have a 7-footer in Marcus Bingham Jr., but he’s not on the same level as Duke’s bigs and finds himself in foul trouble against elite front courts. Behind him, things get smaller with forwards Julius Marble II and Joey Hauser topping out at 6-foot-9. Those guys fight like hell, but over 40 minutes, those matchups will give way to talent and size. I hate betting on Duke (always let me down) and hate betting against Michigan State (always bite me in the ass), but the Spartans will succumb to the Blue Devils’ surplus of scorers and Coach K will get the last laugh.

These teams are pretty evenly matched, though, with the Tide 15th in offensive efficiency per KenPom and the Irish 27th. Notre Dame's offense is averaging over 80 PPG in last 8 games. Alabama has lost 3 games in a row, and I give the edge to ND's offense against this average Bama D.

Rutgers was 5-5 after a convincing 38-3 win over Indiana, but the Knights whiffed in their final two games, getting outscored 68-16. They were blanked at Penn State 28-0, and lost 40-16 at home to Maryland in the season finale. So, the Scarlet Knights limp into this game with little momentum.

Wake will be w/o WR Jaquarii Roberson, as he opted out, but the Demon Deacons have plenty of offensive weapons to make life miserable for the Scarlet Knights.

I'm not sure either team wants to be here at this point, but Wake should steam roll the piss out of Rutgers today.

Why Dallas Cowboys will win and cover:

1.) Saints don't have a QB and I don't expect Taysom Hill to pull the Saints out of a nosedive

2.) Alvin Kamara has missed three games in a row with a knee injury, leaving the team without its best offensive weapon. He's been limited participant in practice this week, and even if he plays he will likely be limited.

3.) Cowboys get a big boost on defense this week with the return of Demarcus Lawrence who has been out all season with a broken foot sustained in pre-season. Lawrence is an outstanding pass rusher will make life difficult for Hill on Thursday night.

4.) The Saints pass defense will get eaten alive by Dak and Dallas bevy of receivers. As if playing against the NFL’s top-ranked offense (420 ypg) won’t be difficult enough, the Saints face a big disadvantage in a big key area - they’re the worst team in the NFL in defending quick passes (defined by Next Gen Stats as passes released with under 2.5 seconds to throw). In that subset, the Saints rank 32nd in completion percentage allowed (81.9), yards per attempt (7.9) and passer rating (115.9). I expect Prescott to nickel and dime his way down the field and open up the deep threat.

Given how bad things have gotten for USC over the past seven weeks, it's hard to imagine the Trojans can stop BYU from getting that 10th W. USC's defense has given up an average of 40.0 points over its last five games, including both Arizona and UCLA putting up more points against the Trojans than they have against any other team this season. And BYU has averaged 53.0 points over its last three games, so this offense is plenty capable of destroying this defense.

Iowa changed up its quarterback situation following Spencer Petras' shoulder injury, and Alex Padilla has risen to the occasion to mixed results. Padilla only completed six of 17 pass attempts for 83 yards last week in a sluggish outing against Illinois for 83 yards, but he passed for 206 yards in a key game against Minnesota before that.

Unfortunately for Nebraska, Adrian Martinez will not be available for the Cornhuskers in the final game of the season. Their starting quarterback will be out of action due to an injured shoulder, leaving Nebraska's offense without its top offensive player as a passer and a rusher. So that is a lot of offense to make up for in his absence. Nebraska freshmen Logan Smothers could be the next man up for the Huskers as a result.

I initially liked Nebraska here but w/o Martinez at the helm its going to be tough sledding against a stiff Iowa defense. SO I'm looking at the total here as I think this is going to be a low scoring 14-10 type of game.

I feel like there is a small chance Russ sits out for Seattle with the season over. However, even if he plays, this is still and offense that is broken and lost. 1 TD in 19 possessions with Russ.

The Steelers might have Big Ben back from COVID-19 list, but they will be w/o standout safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, which doesn't bode well against the Chargers potent aerial attack.

It's been a hot minute since Ole Miss lit up the scoreboard, and have been held to 31 points or fewer in each of its last five games.

That should change against a Vanderbilt defense that has allowed at least 21 points and more than 400 yards in each of its nine games against FBS opponents, including anemic Connecticut, Colorado State, South Carolina and Stanford. The running back committee of Jerrion Ealy, Snoop Conner and Henry Parrish Jr. went for 265 yards on the ground against Texas A&M, but they only accounted for one touchdown. They'll quadruple the TD output while running all over the Commodores. This one will get ugly early.

This game sure has lost some luster since opening the year as No. 2 against No. 7 in the AP poll and Iowa State just got caught sleeping in Lubbock losing to a below average Texas Tech team.

Iowa State was supposed to have one of the best defenses in the country, but things have fallen apart for the Cyclones as of late. They shut down floundering Texas in Week 10, but that performance was bookended by losses to West Virginia and Texas Tech in which they allowed at least 320 yards and three touchdowns through the air.

What we'll get from Oklahoma's offense has been a mystery on a week-to-week basis all season, and now it appears they have another "Spencer Rattler or Caleb Williams?" debate on their hands.

It once felt like Oklahoma was going to have a 2014 Florida State-type of season, winning close game after close game before getting smoked in the postseason. But now it feels more like 2017 Miami, which started 10-0 before losing three straight. I like Iowa State pulls off the road upset.

Normally one of the better running teams in the nation, Georgia Southern has been out-rushed in five consecutive games, and Tyler Allgeier and Co. will likely push that streak to six. BYU put up 66 points against Virginia and 59 against Idaho State in its two most recent games, and it shouldn't have any trouble scoring in this one against an Eagles team that is 0-7 against opponents who are currently .500 or better. BYU should have no troubles winning this game by 3 TD's.

I think this line being under 3 TD's is an over reaction to the OU Kansas game last weekend. Admittedly Oklahoma has been about as disappointing as an 8-0 team can be, but Caleb Williams and Co. can still put points on the board in a hurry. And this Texas Tech defense previously allowed 52 points to TCU and 70 points to Texas. Bottomline is Texas Tech isn't great offensively and defensively they couldn't stop a nose bleed. I think the Sooners roll in Norman.

Given how awful Penn State looked last week in its loss to Illinois and how unstoppable Ohio State has been since the second quarter of that Week 3 game against Tulsa, this feels like this game has got blow out written all over it.

Penn State has yet to allow an opponent to score more than 23 points in a game this season, but it has also only faced one opponent (Auburn) who ranks better than 70th in the nation in scoring or total offense. And, let's be honest, Auburn is just an OK offense that ran up the score in early games against Akron and Alabama State.

And Penn State's running game hasn't shown enough this season for me to believe it can exploit Ohio State's front seven the way that Oregon did.

This is a bit of a homer pick but I'm laying the points, I think PSU is as bad as advertised.

As if LSU wasn't having enough trouble winning games, star wide receiver Kayshon Boutte (38 receptions, 508 yards, nine touchdowns) will be out for the rest of the year with a right ankle injury. Boutte had accounted for more than half of LSU's receiving touchdowns, so that's a gigantic blow for an offense that ranks 127th in rushing yards per game.

Even with a healthy Boutte, this would be a tough ask for the Tigers. Florida has outgained its opponents by 185 yards per game. The Gators are well equipped to destroy a defense that just allowed 330 rushing yards to Kentucky and has allowed more than 450 total yards in each of its four games against Power Five opponents.

The question isn't "Will Florida win?" The question is "Will Florida win by a wide enough margin to make LSU decide it's better off with an interim coach the rest of the way?" I say yes.

Has Texas A&M finally figured things out on offense, or was the win over Alabama a perfect storm? We'll have to wait and see, but we know Missouri's defense is bad.

In all five games played against FBS opponents, the Tigers have allowed at least 450 total yards and an average of 39.4 points. They have been dreadful against the run—Kentucky, Southeast Missouri State, Boston College and Tennessee combined for 1,367 yards (342 per game; 7.0 per carry) and 16 touchdowns over four consecutive games.

Isaiah Spiller and Devon Achane will likely both run wild in this one, while the Aggies defense (16.8 points allowed per game) should stop Connor Bazelak and Tyler Badie at least a few times.

It's a bit of a "homer" pick but I've got to take the Aggies here as these two teams are trending in opposite directions.

I was ready to buy stock in NC State's defense after it held Clemson below 200 total yards in regulation in Week 4, but then the Wolfpack gave up 480 yards in a close call against Louisiana Tech. Their front seven has been solid, but the secondary can be exploited by an above-average passing attack.

The good news for NC State is that Boston College doesn't have one of those. Since taking over for the injured Phil Jurkovec in Week 2, Dennis Grosel has four touchdowns and four interceptions in four games, averaging 186 passing yards per contest. If he stays in that range while NC State's run defense does its usual thing (one TD allowed all season), it's hard to imagine the Eagles do enough to get the W, even with home-field advantage.

SJSU ranks second-to-last in the nation with a per-game turnover margin of minus-1.67. Against a strong SDSU defense that forces 1.8 turnovers per game and has yet to allow an opponent to rush for more than 70 yards, that seems like a colossal problem waiting to happen.

Each of San Jose State's three losses (USC, Western Michigan and Colorado State) has come by at least 18 points, and the Aztecs have a potent enough rushing attack to keep that trend going. Getting San Diego State inside of 10 points feels like a gift.

Sean McVay and the Rams have owned the Cardinals winning the last 8 games and that was with Jared Goff at QB. The Rams look like the best team in the NFL right now, but let's not forget the Cardinals haven't lost either. Four points is a lot for Kyler Murray to work with, especially in a division matchup, but Arizona hasn't been as convincing as Los Angeles early this season.

Kansas State already has impressive wins over Stanford (by 17) and Nevada (by 21). We're going to need to take the Wildcats seriously as a Big 12 threat if they're able to cruise to victory in Stillwater, too.

Oklahoma State is also looking to improve to 4-0, fresh off a razor-thin road win over Boise State. In fact, all three of Oklahoma State's non-conference wins came right down to the wire, but no one is going to bat an eye at that detail if the Cowboys smoke the Wildcats at home. They would surely jump into next week's AP Top 25 if they can pull that off.

One concern for Kansas State bettors is they are down to their 2nd string QB and don't have much of an aerial attack at the moment. Backup quarterback Will Howard, Kansas State had just 61 passing yards in the final 59 minutes of its Week 3 game against Nevada, and it has just one passing touchdown all season. Oklahoma State's Spencer Sanders went 6-of-13 for 82 yards in Week 3 against a Boise State defense that allowed 318 yards and four passing touchdowns in a previous loss to UCF.

I think this matchup devolves into a rare ground game and that's advantage to Kansas State. The Wildcats have rushed for at least 200 yards and three scores in all three games, and at 1.9 yards per carry, their run defense ranks among the best in the nation. I like KSU in an upset this weekend against a OSU team that has looked very average this season.

CU got thrashed 0-30 against Minnesota last week and things won't get any easier against a good ASU team....albeit the Sun Devils did lose last week to a really good BYU team.

9 points feels like a lot here with how Rutgers has played over the last month, winning 4 of their last 5 games. But Michigan beat a good Wisconsin team by 8 points last week and the Knights struggle against distance shooting and the Wolverines are strong from beyond the arc. I think Michigan's defense will give Rutgers problems here tonight but Rutgers is a streaky good team. This game will come down to 3 point % - If Michigan shoots 38+% from behind the Arc they will cover if they shoot 25% from behind the arc they probably won't cover. But on their home court, I think Michigan will get the 3 ball going and their defense will be too much over 4 quarters....Big Blue is 14-1 for a reason.
