This week we’re pumping more than 5 games, 8 of them this week because we’re far enough along in the season to think these will be fun to watch and of course we will be watching them all!
Line: South Carolina -14
A lot of people would say this may be Derek Dooley’s last game against South Carolina as the head coach at Tennessee, can Dooley pull off a miracle with Sandstorm on repeat? Don’t count on it.
Line: Florida -6.5
The Gators aren’t even favored by a touchdown against Georgia, so while the BCS has shown them much respect, Vegas isn’t quite buying into the hype yet. If Richt can upset the Gators the SEC East could be up for grabs again.
Line: Kansas State -7
Texas Tech was supposed to get destroyed by West Virginia. They didn’t. Can the Red Raiders and Tommy Tuberville pull off another upset or will Optimus Klein steal the show again and earn a trip to New York?
Line: USC -6.5
Rich Rod is getting some love from Vegas. Less than a touchdown underdog isn’t too bad for the new Wildcat coach, but I’m not sure he can handle the late runs the Trojans make. The Wildcats did put up 52 on Washington last weekend, but that was after they lost 3 straight to 3 Oregon, 18 Oregon State, and 18 Stanford, who’s to say they’ll beat number 9 USC? Not me.
Line: Oklahoma -11
Does 11 seem high to anyone else? This will be the best game to keep an eye on. If Vegas is right, Notre Dame will get exposed and we can all come back down to Earth. This will be Brian Kelly’s biggest game since taking over at Notre Dame.
Line: Nebraska -2.5
Derp Robinson taking on Martinez in the sea of red at night will just be good stuff. Nevermind that the spread is only 2.5, this game will entertain you.
Line: Alabama -24
Dan Mullen and the Bulldogs are getting no respect. Alabama hasn’t faced a ranked opponent since their season opener against then number 8 Michigan. Are the Tide as unreal as they look? These are two of the best quarterbacks in the country right now in passing efficiency. Which one will slip up and give the other team a jump? Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Bryant-Denny won’t be easy to get past but those 24 points may be.
Network: Pac 12 Network
Line: Oregon State -3.5
LATE NIGHT PAC 12 FOOTBALL!!!! Fall asleep while watching the return of Sean Mannion against the Huskies. Oregon State should roll, but Washington is prone to putting up ridiculous numbers in games like this. The Huskies could surprise everyone.
