The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football Week 7 Predictions 

College Football Week 7 Predictions 

Week 7 predictions
Publish Date: 10/13/2018
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Week 6 saw another chunk of upsets, 3 of them inside the Top-10 and 8 losses in the Associated Press Top-25. Texas held off Oklahoma with a late field goal to spoil the Sooners hopes of an unbeaten season.

On paper, Week 7 could be a tad underwhelming with only 3 ranked versus ranked foes squaring off. Not to sound like a broken record, but a forecast of a mild week generally leads to major surprises few see coming in the regular season of College Football. Keep an eye out for 2 of the 3 higher-ranked teams having to go on the road in enemy territory.

Marquee Matchups

#2 Georgia at #13 LSU: This marquee matchup is a crucial SEC scrap between the unbeaten Georgia Bulldogs and LSU Tigers. The game will not start under the lights in prime time but make no mistake about there’s a reason Tiger Stadium is synonymous with the place where dreams go to die. The Bulldogs are stacked and look the part of a National Semifinalist.

LSU lost last week on the road to Florida so facing the potential for back to back losses means it is truly a do or die situation for the Tigers. LSU QB Joe Burrow came back to earth last week and will need to outperform his counterpart Jake Fromm. Will the Bulldogs validate their 2nd-ranked position in the polls or will Death Valley strike again killing the dreams of another title run for Georgia?

The Pick: Georgia 20 LSU 17

#15 Wisconsin at #12 Michigan: A pair of one-loss Big Ten teams lock-horns in this cross-divisional contest. The silver lining for both is losing to a non-conference opponent instead of dropping a league game. Wisconsin has leaned heavily on RB Jonathan Taylor and he has responded very well per usual. This week is a different beast facing the Wolverines defense giving up just under 16-points per game and stout versus the run.

The key player for Wisconsin will be hot-and-cold quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Can Hornibrook be a difference maker in the passing game to help out the ground and pound attack behind Taylor? Michigan’s strong defense, the talent on the outside offensively, and QB Shea Patterson’s improvements in recent weeks give the Wolverines the edge making just enough plays at the right time.

The Pick: Michigan 23 Wisconsin 15

Under The Radar

#7 Washington at #17 Oregon: It doesn’t get any bigger than this Northwest tilt in the PAC-12 North division. The Ducks must get this victory to have any chance of a trip to the Pac-12 championship game. Will see how Oregon responds having already choked a few weeks back against Stanford. Washington is faced with the difficult task of traveling on the road forced to gut it out. The Huskies elite defense and more experienced quarterback in Jake Browning is a recipe for success. Will Oregon lose yet another important game at home? Ducks QB Justin Herbert along with the Oregon defense will need to bring their ‘A’ game.

The Pick: Washington 38 Oregon 33

Saturday Upset Special

The UCLA Bruins finally get off the schnied by surprising California at home as a 7-point favorite

Hardcore Barnburner

#19 Colorado at USC: Las Vegas has the Trojans as a 7-point favorite so let’s see what this 5-0 Buffaloes squad is all about on the road in southern California. USC has been lifeless when up against top team thus far.

#6 West Virginia vs. Iowa State: This Big-12 hardcore barnburner looks like a blowout on the surface but don’t tell that to the Las Vegas betting lines. Every year it seems the Cyclones manage to push or upset a highly-rated team, especially at home.

Against The Spread

#5 Notre Dame is on a roll this season and will definitely rack up another ‘W’ versus Pittsburgh just not by the 20.5 Las Vegas claims.

Easy Money

Take it to the window Washington vs. Oregon will go over 58-points and Ohio State will cover as a 29.5-point favorite over the Minnesota Gophers.

Quick Hits Recap

-Mississippi State senior QB Nick Fitzgerald ran for 195 yards and two touchdowns in an upset victory over #8 Auburn. In the process, Fitzgerald passed Florida great Tim Tebow for most rushing yards from a quarterback in SEC history.

-Wisconsin tailback Jonathan Taylor ran for a career-long 88-yard touchdown and filled the stat sheet with 221 rushing yards in a 41-24 victory over Nebraska.

-Texas’s huge 48-45 win over Oklahoma last Saturday was the highest combined score ever in the Red-River-Rivalry.

-Georgia Tech is known for their triple-option offense, the YellowJackets became only the 3rd team in the last 15 to score 8 rushing touchdowns in consecutive games.

-The Miami Hurricanes came storming back from a 20-point deficit with 5 minutes to go in the third quarter, stealing a 28-27 win over bitter-rival Florida State.

-Missouri kicker Tucker McCann hit a 57-yard field goal in a losing effort to South Carolina. The Gamecocks needed a 33-yard FG from Parker White to win 37-35.

-After 6 weeks of the regular season College Football 11 teams across the country remain unbeaten in the FBS.
