The Big 5 College Football Games of Weekend #11

Thursday, November 06, 2008

He's a man he's 40 and he's facing the #2 team in the Nation with a chance to move closer to a BCS Bowl birth.

5. Oregon State Beavers at California Los Angeles Bears
This is not a high profile game mostly because Oregon St. remains unranked and UCLA is just plain old bad, but every game the Beavers play is huge. I'm not a believer that they will automatically win games given their poor play early this year, but if they go out and win their remaining 4 which they should then they, not USC, win the Pac 10 and get the invite to the Rose Bowl. The Pick: Beaver by 10

4. Florida Gators at Vanderbilt Commodores
In this weeks Degrees of Loss Separation the Gators get toppled by the Commodores. In this weeks reasonable Simon's picks the Gators go out and pummel Vandy because right now they are an unstoppable offensive force.The Pick: Florida by 17

3. Texas Christian Horned Frogs at Utah Utes
The Utes are undefeated and highly ranked after their opening victory over the Wolverines. The Horned Frogs have 1 loss to top 6 Oklahoma and have already beaten Mormons to a bloody pulp. The winner has a great chance at a BCS birth, the loser is all but done. The Pick: Purple Frogs by 6

2. Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Louisiana State Tigers
It's the Saban Bowl. Good ole Nick gets to come back to the program he built up to a national title just to bolt for the NFL and come running back into the SEC West almost immediately. LSU has major offensive problems but outside of the LSU game the Crimson Tide do not have any incredible wins. This is their only real test left before a trip to the SEC title game, will they slip up? The Pick: LSU by 3

1. Oklahoma State Cowboys at Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders get the top spot two weeks in a row as they face off once again against a ranked opponent. After pulling off the upset against the Longhorns they are big favorites at home over the Gundys. Okie State's defense was solid in the loss at Texas and should be able to stifle the Raiders offense some, I just don't trust their offense to put up the necessary points. The Pick: TT by 7
