The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football Week 10 Predictions 2021

College Football Week 10 Predictions 2021

Publish Date: 11/05/2021
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Speaking of rankings, the official Playoff Rankings came out and theirs defiantly some head-scratchers. Week 9 delivered majorly, giving College Football fans six upsets of ranked teams coming via unranked with the biggest win going to Michigan State. Week 10 looks somewhat harmless on paper with only one ranked versus ranked matchup, but as usual, keep an eye out for surprise outcomes and games flying under the radar in the SEC and Big-12. Cincy is too low, Mississippi State is too high, but it’s just the first ranking so let’s see how this plays out. Find the best promotions and offers when you want to bet the games!

Marquee Matchup

 

#13 Auburn vs #14 Texas A&M: These two SEC West squads square off and are evenly matched into this critical matchup. Auburn is a tad better on offense and the Aggies a little better on defense. This year especially, the Tigers QB Bo Nix has stepped up big, which goes a long way in this type of game. That said, A&M QB Zach Calzada is no slouch, and it should be mentioned that he shined bright in a win over Bama. Auburn has faced a brutal schedule the last three outings making me wonder if they come out a bit flat. The Aggies are coming off a bye week and have looked like a more confident team than back in September. A down-ish game for Nix along with the 100,000+ fans at College Station is good enough reason to side with the Aggies.

The Pick: Texas A&M 27 Auburn 23

 

Under The Radar 

 

#3 Michigan State vs. Purdue: The Spartans got a massive win over in-state rival Michigan and were rewarded with a high ranking. The Iowa Hawkeyes were full steam ahead as the #2 team in the land before falling to this dangerous Boilermaker club. There is a legit chance Michigan State could put up a stinker in a classic letdown spot the week after a significant surge. However, this podcaster thinks Sparty will grind out an ugly win unless Purdue comes up with a few key turnovers and splashes either on offense or special teams.

The Pick: Michigan State 23 Purdue 20

 

 

#17 Mississippi State vs. Arkansas: Mississippi State’s high ranking did surprise some folks, given that they have three losses. Two coming from the unranked and one in a beat down by Alabama, but they have won against two ranked teams in Kentucky and A&M, plus a quality non-conference victory over N.C. State. After beating A&M and Texas, Arkansas lost 3 in a row. They came against Top-25 Ole Miss, Auburn, and #1 Georgia. The Hogs are at home and need a big win to the correct ship of what looked to be a very productive season. The Bulldogs will have the mindset of wanting respect after all the heat they’ve taken nationally. Also, this is an exciting style matchup with a run and gun offense that throws for 371-yards per game in Miss St., going up against a more balanced attack coming from the Razorbacks.

The Pick: Arkansas 30 Mississippi State 24 

 

Saturday Upset Special

 

Florida State upsets #19 N.C. State as a slight home dog of 2.5-points.

 

Hardcore Barnburner

 

#11 Oklahoma State vs. West Virginia: The Cowboys dropped a game recently to Iowa State but remained in the running for the Big-12 title game. The Mountaineers won’t just lay down coming off a big win over that same Cyclones team, plus playing in front of an ordinarily hostile Morgantown crowd.

 

#18 Kentucky vs Tennessee: Las Vegas has this SEC East matchup dead even, and that’s about right. This should be a great clash of offense versus defense, making the perfect ingredients for a barnburner.

 

Against The Spread 

 

#9 Wake Forest is a minor underdog giving up 2.5-points to North Carolina on the road, and I’m calling for a win by Wake.

 

Can Liberty hang around long enough to lose by less than 9.5-points to #16 Ole Miss?

 

Take it to the window. 

 

Cal covers as a 10-point favorite at winless Arizona.

 

Quick Hits Recap & My Top 4 Plus 2 More

 

-My Top-4: Georgia, Alabama, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Oklahoma, Oregon.

 

-MSU RB Kenneth Walker rushed for 197 yards and scored 5 TD’s in a win over Michigan. Walker became the first player in school history to score five touchdowns versus Michigan.

 

-Sooners QB Caleb Williams is only the 3rd player in Oklahoma history to pass for at least 6 TD’s with no interceptions in-game, joining Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield.

 

-BYU RB Tyler Allgeier rushed for 266 yards and 5 TD’s in a high-scoring affair over Virginia.

 

-Houston WR Nathaniel Dell caught nine passes for 165 yards and three touchdowns in a great victory over previously unbeaten SMU.

 

-Wake Forest QB Sam Hartman has 20 completions of 20+ yards in the last four games, five more than any other quarterback in the nation.

 

-Miami QB Tyler Van Dyke threw for 428 yards in a shootout victory over Pitt. Van Dyke’s day was good enough to put him in second place for most passing yards as a freshman, only behind Gino Torretta, who set the record back in 1989.

 

-In a losing effort, QB Kenny Pickett became the first Pitt Panther ever to throw for over 500 yards finishing with 519 and 3 TD’s.
