College Football Week 10 Predictions: Georgia/Missouri, Ala/LSU, Wash/USC, Texas/Kansas St, OU/Ok.St, ND/Clemson and more

College Football Week 10 Predictions

Week 9 belonged to Kansas, Arizona, and Georgia Tech, delivering great wins and adding to the solid slate of games us College Football fans enjoyed. Week 10 is completely stacked with 5 ranked versus-ranked matchups, along with many games flying under the radar more than worth a watch. Was Washington ranked too low at #5? Was Ohio State ranked too high at #1? To be fair, it’s just the first week of rankings, so let’s not get too carried away.

Marquee Matchups

#2 Georgia vs. #12 Missouri: This SEC East marquee matchup is for sole possession of the #1 spot on that side of the conference. As we know, the Bulldogs will be short-handed without their stud TE Brock Bowers, but it sure didn’t prevent them from wiping the floor with Florida. In fact, in the month of October, Georgia outscored opponents by 78 points. Besides a loss to LSU, Missouri has overachieved with really nice wins over Kentucky and Kansas State. The Tigers did play the Bulldogs razor close in 2022 and beyond turnovers, redzone success will be key. The Missouri offense is the best in the nation in red zone success rate so it would be huge for Georgia defense to force FG’s. Can the QB Brady Cook and WR Luther Burden III outscore the Georgia offense and also play good enough defense? Georgia wins this one but don’t be surprised if the Tigers score late to sneak under the +15.5. (Wouldn’t hurt to buy up to +17.5)

 

The Pick: Georgia -15.5

 

#8 Alabama vs. #14 LSU: The winner of this SEC West matchup will play in the league title game. LSU QB Jayden Daniels is playing lights out and deserves to be ranked high among any signal caller in the country. Alabama QB Jalen Milroe has shown some improvements in recent games but will it be enough to keep pace with the Tigers juggernaut of an offense? The Bama offense and overall team has gone back to their old ways in playing conservative offense mixed with stout defense. LSU in this rivalry game last year won in overtime on a two-point conversion. The injuries on defense and o-line for LSU will likely too much to overcome unless Milroe has a horrible outing.

 

The Pick: Alabama -3

 

Under The Radar

 

#5 Washington vs. #20 USC: Many feel the Huskies were disrespected in the first Playoff Committee rankings. Their win of Oregon can be seen as the best of all teams especially given the Ducks #6 ranking. That said Washington has been scrapping by something the committee docked them on big time. Notre Dame caused early turnovers and kicked the Trojans teeth in so the nation will be watching closely to see if UW can beat USC convincingly. On the flip side QB Caleb Williams and USC come into this one kind of loose and could pull off an upset. The Vegas odds tell us that outcome is very possible. At 76.5 for the total sets up to feature drama in the 4th quarter with the team that gets the victory holding the ball last. At the end of the day it’s difficult for this College Football podcaster to back that horrendous USC defense.

 

The Pick: Washington -3 and under 76.5

 

#7 Texas vs. #23 Kansas State: The Texas Longhorns have a big question mark at quarterback with Quinn Ewers is out. Texas does have a quality defense, an experienced offensive line, and an elite-level running back in Jonathan Brooks. The Wildcats deplore a slow-mo offense that leave casual fans screaming at the QB or RB to do something, not realizing the play is about to develop into a big gain. Also, K-State has a very solid defense capable of containing Brooks to an extent, of course. Can Wildcats QB Will Howard make enough big plays with not only his feet but his arm as well? Maybe running QB Avery Johnson can make some big plays? One thing is for sure is Kansas State can’t have as many turnovers and turnovers on downs as they did versus OKST or they’ll get ran out of the stadium.

The Pick: Texas wins, but K-State +4 and under 49.5 

 

Saturday Upset Special

 

Clemson upsets #15 Notre Dame as a +3 home dog.

 

Illinois pulls minor upset of Minnesota as a +1.5 road dog.

 

Hardcore Barnburners

 

#8 Oklahoma vs. #22 Oklahoma State: The Sooners took their first ‘L’ of the season to Kansas and surely can’t afford to lose here. The Cowboys look rough around the edges in September but managed to win 4 in a row with 3 of those against good to very good teams. This will be a back and forth contest fully on the table for both sides in the 4th quarter.

 

The Pick: Sooners win but OKST +6

 

#15 Notre Dame vs. Clemson: The Irish have played a difficult schedule and even though the Tigers are down in 2023 this won’t be easy. Can the Tigers finally not have so many bad turnovers in the redzone and inside the 5-yard line? Can Notre Dame keep the good vibes going on offense having put up 106 points in their last two games? This game has the perfect ingredients for a hardcore barnburner.

 

The Pick: Clemson +3

 

 

Against The Spread

 

Pitt +21.5 versus #4 FSU

 

Stanford +13 versus Washington State

 

Indiana +9.5 Wisconsin

 

NC State +4.5 versus Miami
