-Week 8-

Not gonna lie, its tough to care too much about these games during the ALCS, which consists of two teams that are represented on this blog… Its been a tense, exciting series so far. Hopefully it ends tonight and we can focus on some college football on Saturday. Which does present some fun match-ups, so lets get into the picks!

Iowa State @ Texas Tech

Josh: Texas Tech

Look, the Red Raiders beat Baylor last week. They didn’t get credit for it due to some critical, inexcusable, and quite frankly unprofessional officiating blunders. But Tech deserved to leave Waco with a win. I think Matt Wells will have his guys ready to prove a point Saturday morning. Tech has struggled with Matt Campbell’s teams in the past, I think they exercise some demons and win comfortably.

Ozzie: Iowa State

As much of a must win game for both teams. I think ISU wins a close one.

Mike: Texas Tech

TCU @ Kansas State

Josh: Kansas State

Both teams have been difficult to figure out so far, I just think TCU’s offense is too much of a question for them to beat anyone of significance right now. Could go either way though.

Ozzie: Kansas State

Neither team is that good, but I believe that Kansas State is a but better.

Mike:

Kansas State

Oregon @ Washington

Josh: Oregon

The Ducks have started to look more and more like that playoff contender that I thought they would be. They win big!

Ozzie: Oregon

What I thought would be an eventual conference championship, but give me Oregon on the road in a close one.

Mike: Oregon

Baylor @ Oklahoma State

Josh: Oklahoma State

No chance the football gods allow Baylor to win after they were gifted a W last week.

Ozzie: Oklahoma State

Baylor has looked good, escaped a close one last week. OSU and the offense will have a big day.

Mike: Oklahoma State

Arizona State @ Utah

Josh: Utah

Pac12 South is a big mess, unless Utah can get in a groove here and roll to the Pac12 Title game.

Ozzie: Utah

Both teams have shown glimpses of being great, Give me Utah in a shootout.

Mike: Utah

Kansas @ Texas (-21)

Josh: Texas

Texas for sure wins the game. 21 is a lot of points, but I think UT covers.

Ozzie: Texas

Texas has a bounce back weekend and prepares for the rest of the Big12 with an easy win at home.

Mike: Texas

Michigan @ Penn State

Josh: Penn State

I tried to ride Michigan as my Big10 team this year, but they crapped the bed too early and I still haven’t forgiven them. Penn State, on the other hand, always seems to get me to buy into them.

Ozzie: Penn State

As big of a MUST WIN game for Harbaugh as this is, I think Happy Valley is electric and plays a huge factor. Nittany Lions win a close game.

Mike: Penn State

Texas A&M @ Ole Miss

Josh: Texas A&M

Aggies aren’t very good, but I don’t think the Rebels are either.

Ozzie: Texas A&M

I mean, I guess…

Mike: Texas A&M

Tennessee @ Alabama (-34.5)

Josh: Tennessee

Bama is obviously going to win, but 7 TD’s is a lot to be banking on. Surely Tennessee can jeep this within 30 points on a suspect Bama defense.

Ozzie: Alabama

Mama starting to get rolling before the biggest challenge of the season. I think they cover.

Mike: Alabama

Arizona @ USC

Josh: Arizona

I remain clueless when it comes to picking games involving the Trojans. Im riding with ‘Zona in hopes that Texas Techs loss back in Week 3 continues to look better…

Ozzie: USC

Both teams have been good. Both teams have been ehhh. Give me the Trojans at home.

Mike: USC
