Time: 3:00pm ET
Spread: Alabama - 24
Over/Under:

The Crimson Tide have scored 255 points and allowed 110 on the season. Alabama leads the SEC West by two games, over LSU, who is 3-2.

Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-3) @ # 4 Oklahoma Sooners (7-1)
Time: 8:00pm ET
Spread: Oklahoma – 22
Over/Under:
Preview: The Oklahoma Sooners, with their lone loss coming to Texas are excited about their position within the Bowl Championship Series. At 7-1 on the year, the number four position is not a bad place to be right now. The Sooners trail just Texas, Alabama and Penn State. The Sooners still have games left with Texas Tech and Oklahoma State to help solidify their position. In eight games played this year, Oklahoma has scored 386 points and allowed 180. Oklahoma is 3-0 at home. The Sooners are tied with Oklahoma State in the Big 12 South with 3-1 marks, trailing Texas and Texas Tech. Quarterback Sam Bradford has thrown for over 2700 yards, and 29 touchdowns on the season. For Nebraska, the Cornhuskers are one win away from being bowl eligible. With two straight wins over Iowa State and Baylor, the Cornhuskers offense has started to get rolling a bit. The three losses for Nebraska have been to Virginia Tech, Missouri and Texas Tech; all teams from inside the Top 25. The Cornhuskers have outscored opponents 265-194 on the season. Nebraska is 1-1 thus far on the road in 2008.

Washington Huskies (0-7) @ # 5 USC Trojans (6-1)
Time: 6:30pm ET
Spread: USC – 43.5
Over/Under:
Preview: Things could get ugly in a hurry in Pasadena on Saturday. The Washingon Huskies have yet to win a game in 2008. Being outscored 277-113 on the year, Washington is coming off three straight games of allowing 33 points or more in a game. The Huskies were beaten around by Notre Dame on Saturday; 33-7. Washington’s closest game of the season came on September 6th when they fell to BYU 28-27. The Huskies have played three teams that were inside the Top 25 on game day. The USC Trojans have continued to roll since their loss to Oregon State. The Trojans continue to climb up the BCS ladder, and sit at # 5.

In seven games this season, USC has outscored opponents 266-57. The Trojans are allowing teams to score just 11 points per game on them.

# 8 Florida Gators (6-1) @ # 6 Georgia Bulldogs (7-1)
Time: 3:30pm ET
Spread: Florida -6
Over/Under:
Preview: The SEC East is on the line, and an outside chance at a college football national title spot is also on the line. The Gators come in 6-1 overall; 4-1 inside the SEC with their lone loss coming on September 27th to Mississippi. The Gators are coming off a 63-5 win over Kentucky on Saturday in which quarterback Tim Tebow threw for 180 yards and two touchdowns, but also ran for 48 yards. The Gators have scored 294 and allowed an astonishing 83 points on the year. Florida’s defense will be put to the test on Saturday when the Georgia Bulldogs come calling. The Bulldogs offense has put up 274 points on the season, but coming off a game in which they scored 52 on the LSU Tigers. The Bulldogs lone loss on the year came on November 27th to Alabama. Both teams are tied in first place in the SEC East, so the winner of this game will grab the much-needed upper hand to possibly play in the SEC title game.

Iowa State Cyclones (2-6) @ # 9 Oklahoma State Cowboys (7-1)
Time: 3:30pm ET
Spread: Oklahoma State – 31.5
Over/Under:
Preview: The Cowboys want to make sure they are not overlooking the Cyclones on Saturday. The Cyclones are sandwiched between games against Texas and then a battle next week against Texas Tech. The Cowboys fell two positions in the BCS standings after the 28-24 loss to Texas on Saturday. The win for Texas was their closest margin of victory all season. Zach Robinson continues to put up impressive numbers for the Cowboys throwing for over 1650 yards and 15 touchdowns on the season. Oklahoma State is averaging 43.6 points per game, while allowing just 21.5. For Iowa State, the Cyclones have struggled mightily this season. Losers of six straight games after opening the season with wins over South Dakota State and Kent State, the Cyclones are 0-4 in the Big 12 with losses to Kansas, Baylor, Nebraska and Texas A+M. The Cyclones have been outscored on the season 253-213. Iowa State is 0-3 so far this season on the road.

# 13 Texas Christian University Horned Frogs (8-1) @ UNLV Rebels (3-5)
Time: 8:00pm ET
Spread: TCU – 13.5
Over/Under:
Preview: The Horned Frogs have won four straight games after their 35-10 loss at Oklahoma in late September. After starting 4-0, Oklahoma was a bump in the road, before winning four straight and now the Horned Frogs have control of the Mountain West Conference. Texas Christian must make sure they do not look ahead to week 11 in which they will face co-leader of the Mountain West; Utah, in what appears to be for the conference title. The Horned Frogs have scored 322 points to their opponents 94 on the year. On Saturday Jimmy Young caught 5 balls for 226 yards and three touchdowns.

# 14 Missouri Tigers (6-2) @ Baylor Bears (3-5)
Time: 3:00pm ET
Spread: Missouri – 20
Over/Under:
Preview: The Missouri Tigers got off their losing ways in a big way on Saturday. After losing two straight to Oklahoma State and Texas; the Tigers put up 58 points on Saturday in a 58-0 win over Colorado. The Tigers are now 6-2 overall, and tied in first in the Big 12 North, at 2-2. The Tigers do not play another ranked team all season; but will take on Kansas to end the season in what could decide the Big 12 North. The Tigers have scored 379 points, and allowed 184 on the season. Quarterback Chase Daniel has thrown for over 2600 yards and completed 23 touchdown passes. His top receiver has been Jeremy Maclin, who has caught 7 touchdowns, and 800 yards. For the Bears, they come in 3-5, and needing all four of their remaining games to become bowl eligible.

Baylor is 1-3 in the Big 12 South. The Bears three wins this season have come over Northwestern State, Washington State, and Iowa State. The Bears have been outscored on the season 220-218.

# 15 Florida State Seminoles (6-1) @ Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (6-2)
Time: 3:30pm ET
Spread: Florida State – 1.5
Over/Under:
Preview: The Seminoles coached by the legendary Bobby Bowden have continue to make solid jumps in the polls with each win. Florida State has won four straight games after a loss to Wake Forest in the end of September. The Seminoles have defeated Colorado, Miami, North Carolina State, and Virginia Tech during that time. The Seminoles lead the ACC Atlantic; tied with Maryland at 3-1 a game ahead of both Boston College and Wake Forest. Florida State has five games remaining on the season; including a final regular season game in Gainesville that could have huge BCS implications for both teams. The Seminoles have outscored opponents 254-116 on the year. Georgia Tech comes in with a 6-2 overall record and a 3-2 ACC record. The Yellow Jackets are ½ game behind Virginia in the ACC Coastal Division. Georgia Tech is coming off a 24-17 loss to Virginia. Before that game, the Yellow Jackets had won four straight games, over Clemson, Gardner Webb, Duke and Mississippi State. The Yellow Jackets have scored 190 and allowed 105 points on the year. Thus far, Georgia Tech is 4-1 while playing at home.

Northwestern Wildcats (6-2) @ # 17 Minnesota Golden Gophers (7-1)
Time: 12:00pm ET
Spread: Minnesota – 6.5
Over/Under:
Preview: Northwestern is coming off a 21-19 disappointing loss at the hands of the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday. The Wildcats only other loss on the season was a October 11 defeat at the hands of the Michigan State Spartans. Northwestern sits at 2-2 in the Big Ten, trailing 5-0 Penn State, and 4-1 Ohio State and Michigan State. The Wildcats will host Ohio State, travel to Michigan and host Illinois to finish the season. For Minnesota, the Golden Gophers lone hiccup was a 34-21 loss at the hands of Ohio State. Minnesota has won three straight games; over Indiana, Illinois and Purdue with the latter two being on the road. Minnesota has outscored opponents 226-137 this year, and are currently 4-0 when playing at home. Minnesota needs this win to continue to possibly sneak into a BCS bowl game as a Big Ten team. A lot will depend on what Penn State does the remainder of the season. Minnesota will not see Penn State this season; as they face Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa to conclude the season.

# 18 Tulsa Golden Hurricanes (8-0) @ Arkansas Razorbacks (3-5)
Time: 2:00pm ET
Spread: Tulsa – 7
Over/Under:
Preview: The Golden Hurricanes get a chance to battle the proverbial “big time program” on Saturday. Unfortunately for the opponent, they have fallen on hard times. Arkansas will come into the game on Saturday at 3-5, and needing the remainder of their games to fall into a bowl game. For Tulsa, winning eight straight games to start the year has gotten the backers excited. The Golden Hurricanes have scored 445 points on the year, which is an average of 55.6 points per game. Tulsa is best known for their week 8 outburst in which they scored 77 points in a 42 points win over UTEP. The Golden Hurricanes lead Conference USA with a 5-0 mark; their week 12 opponent the Houston Cougars trail them with a 3-0 record.  For Arkansas at 3-5, not much as went right. After starting 2-0 with wins over a low level division one school in Louisiana-Monroe, and a II school in Western Illinois; both games in which the Razorbacks were threatened dearly, the SEC slate did not get any kinder. Arkansas has lost five of six, and their lone win came on October 11 against a struggling Auburn squad. Arkansas will travel to South Carolina and Mississippi State the next two weeks before hosting LSU to conclude the season. Arkansas could forge together a remotely solid season by winning the last four; but it must start on Saturday.

Tulane Green Wave (2-5) @ # 19 LSU Tigers (5-2)
Time: 8:00pm ET
Spread: LSU – 25.5
Over/Under:
Preview: The Tulane Green Wave have lost three straight games; to Army, UTEP and Rice. Tulane sits at 1-3, only ahead of Southern Methodist in Conference USA’s West division. Tulane’s two wins have come over Louisiana Monroe and Southern Methodist. The Green Wave are 0-2 on the road so far this season. For LSU, two ranked teams have smoked the Tigers in the past three weeks. First on October 11th when the Florida Gators blew out LSU 51-21 then last Saturday when Georgia put the hurt to the Tigers in a 52-38 blowout. The Tigers have allowed 181 points so far on the season, and score 225. LSU sits in second place; two games behind Alabama in the SEC West. The Tigers hope to not look past the Green Wave, as next weekend LSU will host # 2 Alabama.

# 20 Brigham Young Cougars (7-1) @ Colorado State Rams (4-4)
Time: 6:00pm ET
Spread: BYU – 14.5
Over/Under:
Preview: The Cougars bounced back from their loss to TCU with a 42-35 win over UNLV on Saturday. Brigham Young is 7-1 on the season and 3-1 inside the Mountain West Conference.

The Cougars are averaging 34.5 points per game this season. For Colorado State, the Rams hope to grab a couple more wins and possible sneak into a bowl game.

The other two defeats for Colorado State were to Colorado and California. The Rams are coming off a 38-34 win over San Diego State on Saturday.

Wisconsin Badgers (4-4) @ # 21 Michigan State Spartans (7-2)
Time: 12:00pm ET
Spread: pick’em
Over/Under:
Preview: The Wisconsin Badgers picked up a huge upset win at home on Saturday; knocking off Illinois 27-17. The win came after four straight losses inside the Big Ten for Wisconsin; Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Iowa. Wisconsin now hopes to pick up atleast three more wins to conclude the regular season and slide into another bowl. After Michigan State, Wisconsin will see Indiana, Minnesota, and then go outside the conference and battle Cal Poly. Wisconsin is 1-4 in the Big Ten, and currently sit tied in 9th place with Indiana. Michigan State is coming off a huge rivalry win at the Big House in Ann Arbor. Sure, Michigan is down, but any win for the Spartans over the Wolverines is huge. Now Michigan State will face an upbeat Badgers squad. Michigan State is 3-1 thus far at home. The Spartans still hold an outside hope for a Big Ten title. Sitting at 4-1 tied with Ohio State, the Spartans are just one game back of Penn State. Michigan State and Penn State will play each other on the final game of the season, November 22 in Happy Valley.

# 24 Oregon Ducks (6-2) @ California Bears (5-2)
Time: 3:30pm ET
Spread: California – 3
Over/Under:
Preview: The Oregon Ducks climb back into the Top 25 with two straight Pac Ten wins over UCLA and Arizona State. Oregon is now 6-2 and 4-1 in the Pac Ten. The 4-1 mark puts the Ducks in a first place tie with USC. Oregon is scoring 41.5 points per game in 8 games played. The Ducks two losses this season have come to Boise State and USC, two teams in the top 15 of the BCS standings. Oregon’s top running back LeGarrette Blount has carried the ball 90 times for 650 yards and completed 12 touchdowns on the season. For California, the Bears are coming off a 41-20 win over UCLA.

West Virginia Mountaineers (5-2) @ # 25 Connecticut Huskies (6-2)
Time: 12:00pm ET
Spread: West Virginia – 4
Over/Under:
Preview: The Mountaineers have won four straight games, and now will be playing a chance to take command of the Big East Conference. With wins over Marshall, Rutgers, Syracuse, and Auburn the Mountaineers have solidified themselves as a force to be concerned with after many wrote them off following a 24-3 loss to East Carolina and 17-14 loss at Colorado. West Virginia leads the Big East with a 2-0 mark, leading Connecticut and Pittsburgh; both are 2-1. Pat White the Mountaineers quarterback has thrown for 12 touchdowns on the season to lead West Virginia to a total of 167 total points. For Connecticut, a trip back into the Top 25 was warranted after a 40-16 blasting of Cincinnati. The Huskies were coming off two straight losses to North Carolina and Rutgers. Connecticut is looking to tie the Mountaineers up at the top of the Big East Conference with a win.

Pittsburgh Panthers (5-2) @ Notre Dame Fighting Irish (5-2)
Time: 2:30pm ET
Spread:
Over/Under:
Preview:  The Pittsburgh Panthers are coming off an embarrassing 54-34 loss to Rutgers. Just as Pittsburgh felt they were heading in the right direction; down they go. Pittsburgh lost in week one to Bowling Green, only to come back and win five straight over Buffalo, Iowa, Syracuse, South Florida and Navy. The Panthers have scored 201 points, but allowed 183 on the season. The Panthers have actually struggled mightily at home, going 2-2, while going 3-0 at home.

Notre Dame has won five of their first seven games, including Saturday’s 33-7 win over Washington.
