Tennessee at No. 5 Georgia (-13.5), 3:30 PM ET, CBS

Don’t underestimate the importance of this one. For Georgia to keep its momentum and go into the Carolina game still undefeated the Bulldogs need to keep their focus. UGA better not get caught looking ahead or this one could be close. Dawgs win this going away, if the stay focused.

 

No. 8 Stanford (-10) at Washington (Thursday)
Stanford had a week off to bask in the win over Southern Cal. However, this could turn out to be a really close game; in my opinion. Stanford wins.

No. 2 Oregon (-29) at Washington State
It is always tempting to take underdogs at home, but Oregon (4-0) is averaging 52.75 points a game against Washington State’s (2-2) 24.75. Mike Leach does have the guys to run with the Ducks, YET….

No. 25 Baylor at No. 9 West Virginia (-12.5)
West Virginia (3-0) has a top 5 passing offense and will be matching up against a Bear (3-0) defense that is giving up 315 yards per game against the likes of SMU, Sam Houston State, and ULM. I am going for the upset this week. I believe ULM; whom the Bears struggled against, is a lot better than most think.

No. 12 Texas (-2.5) at Oklahoma State (+2.5)
The Longhorns (3-0) are averaging just over 47 points per game. However, they were very unimpressive against Ole Miss. Take the Pokes at home in this one.

No. 18 Oregon State at Arizona (-3)
The Beavers (2-0) crept into the top 25 by shutting down rushing attacks led by Wisconsin’s Montee  Ball. I am not convinced that Rich Rod is the real deal yet in Arizona. The Beavers play tough D, so I think they pull out a close one on the road.

Wisconsin at No. 22 Nebraska (-12.5)
Wisconsin (3-1) hasn’t impressed so far this season, their star running back is still recovering from his second concussion this year year, and Nebraska (3-1) is going to be looking for revenge after losing to the Badgers 17-48 in Madison last year. I think Bo Pelini squirts this one out; sorry I couldn’t resist!!!!
