Marquee Matchups

#8 Tennessee vs #25 LSU: Newly ranked LSU has a chance to earn a major home win this Saturday. Can Tennessee avoid the massive hype sinking into players’ minds from what has been a tremendous start from the Vols? Clearly, Tennessee has the advantage at quarterback with Hendon Hooker taking the next step combined with LSU QB Jaylen McDaniels possibly not at full strength and was seen limping from a knee injury of sorts leaving the game last week. The stat that is a real key here, especially for the Tigers, is LSU holding teams to 184 passing compared to Tennessee giving up 309 yards thru the air per game. The question of can LSU exploit the Volunteers’ secondary will likely decide the outcome.

The Pick: Tennessee -3

 

#17 TCU vs #19 Kansas: Two surprise teams in the Big 12 go head to head in a battle of undefeated foes. TCU manhandled the Sooners in Week 5, but can they summon the overcome a letdown in Lawrence? Kansas snuck one out against the Cyclones and will need to be more explosive on offense to compete with the Horned Frogs. So far through 5 games, the Jayhawks have 3 closely-contested games will they finally get beat by a team in TCU whose only close one came versus SMU two weeks ago? This marquee matchup has shootout written all over it so whoever has the ball last will likely be the winner.

The Pick: Kansas +7 TCU gets the “W”, but Kansas scores late.

 

Under The Radar

 

#11 Utah vs #18 UCLA: This game is flying under the radar, but don’t you dare sleep on this Pac-12 matchup. Utah lost on the road in the swamp to Florida but has managed to string some wins together coming off a route of the Beavers. UCLA started fast and survived a late push by Washington last week. The Bruins are better at stopping the run than the Utes, statistically speaking but that can be seen as misleading given the strength of the schedule. I do like the way Utah stepped on the Beavers throat last week, showing killer instincts, whereas UCLA allowed the Huskies back in that game.

The Pick: Utah wins and covers as the -3.5 favorite. 

 

#16 BYU vs. Notre Dame: BYU damn-near got caught looking ahead to the Irish almost losing to a down Utah State. After starting 0-2 Notre Dame found a way to right the ship for now with close wins over California and North Carolina. The Irish coming off a bye week means extra game planning of course their offense isn’t as good as Oregon, which is BYU’s only blemish.

BYU QB Jaren Hall is a difference maker, and with his primary pass catchers in Puka Nacua and Chase Roberts probable to return it could very well push BYU over the top.

The Pick: BYU +3.5

Saturday Upset Special

Iowa is due to pull off an upset over Illinois, assuming it will come in ugly fashion, but the Hawkeyes win.

 

Hardcore Barnburners

#20 Kansas State vs Iowa State: Will the Wildcats keep the ball rolling after back-to-back impressive victories over Oklahoma and Texas Tech? Can Iowa State finally get over the hump and deliver a much-needed win in the Big-12?

The Pick: Kansas State -2

 

Maryland vs Purdue: Purdue just knocked off Minnesota on the road and now travels to Maryland. The Terps look like a team that will compete in the wide-open Big Ten West. Odds favor the Boilermakers not winning on the road again.

The Pick: Maryland -3 but admittedly not all that confident
