Penn State +2 over Michigan (loss)
Michigan is a top 10 ranked team in the country yet are just a 2 point favorite on the road to a 3 loss PSU team. There are just not that many great teams this year. Both programs have similar frustrations about their coach. Jim Harbaugh can never coach 60 full minutes to win games and the Penn State fans can say the same about James Franklin. It’s amazing how Michigan has been nearly flawless this year, but the Michigan State loss was deflating to this team. I just don’ think Michigan had that tough of a schedule this year and the #6 rating is a little generous. Sam Clifford cam frustrate you at times, but he is a veteran QB and has the ability to move the ball down the field. The home crowd will be electric this afternoon and I believe the Penn State defense can limit big plays against this Wolverines offense that misses Ronnie Bell at wide receiver. Look for PSU to run the ball well at home and to take chances when the present themselves. Michigan is a good football team, but I am not sold on their offensive line and their play makers to win a big road game. Take Penn State.

Oklahoma/Baylor Over 63 (loss)
If you like offensive football this should be the game to watch today. Oklahoma has so many great weapons and maybe if things go right can grab a playoff spot and make some noise in the College Football Championship run. I like everything about this Sooners team from the offensive line to the running backs to the receivers and this team actually two QBs that can lead them to victory. Caleb Williams has been incredible at QB and this team doesn’t beat themselves with turnovers. Baylor is a good football team that many have not talked about this year because all the talk has been on the Sooners in the BIG 12, but don’t count this team out. Baylor might not have the most experienced QB, but they have great skill players and a veteran offensive line. Team that have good offensive players can win on any given Saturday in the Big 12. Look for Oklahoma to set the pace with a fast start and for Baylor the respond. This could turn into a classic shootout. Take the Over.

Louisiana Tech -7 over Charlotte (win)
Charlotte needs a win to become bowl eligible while LA Tech is just 2-7. You have to ask yourself why are the Bulldogs a favorite of this size? Skip Holtz has a very talented team that has not played up to their ability. I believe LA Tech has the better overall players on both sides of the ball today and should be able to slow down the Charlotte QB who is nursing a hand injury. LA Tech QB Austin Kendall should be able to move the sticks against the defense today and should be able to work this secondary that is missing their best player this afternoon. I think Vegas set a line to fool the public today. Look for the Bulldogs to play a complete game on both sides of the football. Take Louisiana Tech.

Arkansas -3 over LSU (push)
Death Valley at night with some of the greatest fans on earth and Arkansas is the favorite? You don’t see that happen often, but LSU has major injuries on both sides of the ball and they know their head coach won’t be back next year. Arkansas has frustrated us a few times this year as we have backed them and watched them self-destruct. This team has to take advantage of a Tigers secondary that is missing a lot of good players while other key players are questionable for this game. This Tigers Defensive Line is also banged up so Arkansas should be able to take advantage with the experience on the offensive line. The Razorbacks should be able to run the football and take their deep shots when needed. LSU just doesn’t have the offense to keep up right now. I am not so sure the 12th man of the crowd is good enough to keep the Tigers in the game. Take Arkansas.
