College Football Weekly Picks – Now Updated for Week Twelve

Helpful tip: bookmark this page.

Welcome to the hub for your 2018 College Football Weekly Picks! This page will be updated as each new week comes with my predictions for every game that week. Any against the spread best bets (which hit almost 60% last year!) will also be listed here. Another fun feature that I like to incorporate is my tiered games. Many times I’ve heard somebody ask me what the “big games” are this week, and consider this your one-stop shop for that. I divide every FBS game each week into four tiers: the must-watch games, the maybe watch games, all other FBS vs FBS games, and the FBS vs FCS games.

Note: This is the average result of thousands of simulations for each game, so the scores will look a little wonky.

Tier One Games (Must Watch)

There are really no crazy high-level games this week, so I selected three games I expect to be tight over matchups like Syracuse-Notre Dame that will have bigger national implications but have double-digit point spreads.

West Virginia (8-1, 6-1 Big 12) @ Oklahoma State (5-5, 2-5 Big 12) – 3:30 PM ET, ABC

Oklahoma State always seems to play up to their opponent, see the Boise State game, the Texas game, and the Oklahoma game this past week. The Cowboys, however, haven’t been able to continue playing at that high level when it comes to games outside of the national spotlight like when they lost to Kansas State a few weeks back. OSU won’t run into that problem this week with the CFP #9 West Virginia Mountaineers coming to town. WVU still has an outside shot at a playoff bid, their only loss, Iowa State, continues to climb up the rankings like my computer predicted. As for the Cowboys, Oklahoma State hung 47 on in-state rival Oklahoma last week, a mark I in no way see them hitting this week against a WVU defense that is top three in the conference behind Iowa State and maybe Gary Patterson’s TCU Horned Frogs. Oklahoma State will keep this one tight from start to finish, and the offense will be able to hang with the WVU defense, I’m just a little worried about Oklahoma State’s D stopping Will Grier. Give me West Virginia to keep their playoff hopes alive, but it will be close, and a lot lower scoring than last week despite Taylor Cornelius’ wishes.

Prediction: West Virginia 30, Oklahoma State 26

Stanford (6-4, 4-3 Pac-12) @ California (6-4, 3-4 Pac-12) – 7:30 PM ET, Pac-12 Network

The “Big Game” has been far from competitive in recent years, as Stanford has won eight straight games, a record in the series. The Cardinal’s average margin of victory in those eight games? 20 points. Cal is hoping to end the streak of Stanford dominance, and this year is their best chance to do so in a while. Cal’s in an up year, Stanford’s in a down year, the game is at Cal… Everything seems to line up for a Golden Bear win, but I just can’t pick this streak to end. Stanford QB KJ Costello has been one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the country this year, and JJ Arcega-Whiteside has a chance to be the first receiver taken in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Cal pass defense is good enough that they will limit JJAW’s touches, but even if he has a slow game, I don’t have any faith in the Cal defense to move on this Stanford front. Give me Stanford in a tight one.

Prediction: Stanford 26, California 22

Iowa State (6-3, 5-2 Big 12) @ Texas (7-3, 5-2 Big 12) – 8 PM ET, LHN

This is the only game this week pitting two teams in my CSD Computer Rankings Top 25 against each other, and the sad thing is, a lot of folks won’t get to see it because it’s on the Longhorn Network. If you do get to see it, you’ll be in for a treat. Iowa State has been one team my computer has been saying is underrated since they beat West Virginia a month ago, and the College Football Playoff Committee is just starting to notice it. ISU was in my computer’s top 15 at times when they were unranked by the AP, but now as more and more people start to notice them, and they climb closer to that number my computer had them at weeks ago, they are starting to slip. Last week against Baylor, the Cyclones put in a poor performance, and while the final score was 28-14, it should have been a lot closer according to my computer. Even so, I’d still pick Brock Purdy and the ‘Clones on a neutral field. There’s just one problem with that. This game won’t be played on a neutral field. David Montgomery will be out for the first half, and with the home crowd behind him, I think Sam Ehlinger and the Longhorns get it done and keep their Big 12 Championship Game hopes alive.

Prediction: Texas 34, Iowa State 32

Tier One Games (Must Watch)

Ohio State (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten) @ Michigan State (6-3, 4-2 Big Ten) – 12 PM ET, FOX

Despite being a top 20 team in both my computer model and the College Football Playoff rankings, Michigan State’s season so far has just felt “meh.” Last week’s 24-3 win over Maryland was the first game all year the Spartans won by more than 14 points, and even that wasn’t an incredibly convincing performance. You could say the same thing about Ohio State too. The Buckeyes are a top-ten level team that just doesn’t play like it, they’ve struggled with Minnesota, Indiana, and Nebraska over the past month and the Buckeyes were blown out by Purdue. I really don’t have faith in either of these teams, but Brian Lewerke has been flat out bad recently for the Spartans, so despite the home field advantage, I’m picking Ohio State, not very confidently though.

Prediction: Ohio State 33, Michigan State 27

Wisconsin (6-3, 4-2 Big Ten) @ Penn State (6-3, 3-3 Big Ten) – 12 PM ET, ABC

Two teams with somewhat disappointing years so far square off in College Park as Wisconsin takes on a reeling Penn State team. Despite the blowout loss to Michigan last week, most computer models, including my own, still have the Nittany Lions in the top 15. With a loss here, however, my faith in PSU would go right down the drain. Because of the home field advantage, I think Penn State will win this one, but Wisconsin will keep it a lot closer than the experts think. Penn State QB Trace McSorley is banged up, and this Wisconsin defense is still excellent, so I think its easy money to say the Badgers will keep this one within nine points.

Prediction: Penn State 33, Wisconsin 29 <- BEST BET ALERT (Wisconsin +9)

Mississippi State (6-3, 2-3 SEC) @ Alabama (9-0, 6-0 SEC) – 3:30 PM ET, CBS

Mississippi State is good. If this team had a quarterback, I think they’d be 9-0 right now and we’d be looking at them as a potential playoff team even with a loss here. The defense is maybe the best in the country, allowing 20+ points once this year, and never allowing more than 28. Despite that, they’ve still somehow lost three games, so my point stands, if the Aggies had a serviceable quarterback that could reasonably put up 30 points a game, they’d be fine, but in their three losses, they’ve scored three, six, and seven. The defense is good enough that the model (and I) still sees this team at a borderline top ten level. That might seem like a stretch, but the Bulldogs are 8th in the TeamRankings predictive ratings, 11th in S&P+, and 11th in Sagarin. Now, Alabama went on the road and beat another top ten team by 29, but I am holding out hope that Mississippi State will change quarterbacks for this game and provide a spark to the offense, we all know how terrific of an offensive mind Joe Moorhead is. MSU will still lose, but it will be a lot closer than Vegas and the public think, in fact, I think it will be the first game all year that ‘Bama wins by less than 20.

Prediction: Alabama 41, Mississippi State 22 <- BEST BET ALERT (Mississippi State +26)

Auburn (6-3, 3-3 SEC) @ Georgia (8-1, 6-1 SEC) – 7 PM ET, ESPN

Jarrett Stidham and Auburn came through against Texas A&M, but they run into a much tougher test this week as they must travel on the road to face Jake Fromm and the Georgia Bulldogs. This game will have no effect on the SEC Title race, Georgia will play Alabama there even if they lose out, but it could have an impact on the College Football Playoff hunt. If Georgia loses to Auburn but then wins out and beats ‘Bama in the SEC Championship Game, we could be looking at a very complicated situation on Selection Sunday. Luckily for the committee, I don’t think that will happen. Georgia QB Jake Fromm has been lights out so far this year in the short and intermediate range, and I expect him to lead the Bulldogs to a double-digit point victory here.

Prediction: Georgia 36, Auburn 23

Clemson (9-0, 6-0 ACC) @ Boston College (7-2, 4-1 ACC) – 8 PM ET, ABC

Boston College is looking really good lately, and the home crowd was electric a couple weeks ago in the Red Bandana Game victory over Miami, but if I’m being honest, I don’t see this team beating Clemson, or really even keeping it close. There isn’t a single team in the nation bar Alabama that I would pick to defeat the Tigers right now. Unfortunately for BC, the Clemson run defense is the best in the country, allowing an extraordinary 2.2 yards per carry this year, a number only topped by Nick Saban’s Alabama teams in 2011 and 2016 (1.9 and 2.0 respectively) at any point in the past ten years. The Eagles’ biggest strength, AJ Dillon’s run game, happens to play right into the hands of Clemson. I really like Boston College this year, but this just isn’t a good matchup for them.

Prediction: Clemson 40, Boston College 23

Tier One Games (Must Watch)

Texas A&M (5-3, 3-2 SEC) @ Auburn (5-3, 2-3 SEC) – 12 PM ET, ESPN

The noon slate is highlighted by a matchup between two of the best defenses in the country, and while neither Texas A&M or Auburn will be competing for a conference title in the crowded SEC West, this should be a close, fun college football game to watch when you wake up. Last week I went out on a limb (for me) and picked Nick Fitzgerald, who you know I am not a fan of, to beat Texas A&M, and while I was not very confident in it, Fitzgerald and Mississippi State came through for me and knocked Jimbo and the Aggies, if Nick Fitzgerald can do it, Jarrett Stidham can. While Stidham has not lived up to the NFL hype he got before the season started, he will certainly be a tougher test than Fitzgerald, and with the Auburn pass rush at home, I expect A&M to drop their 2nd straight game.

Prediction: Auburn 25, Texas A&M 23

Georgia (7-1, 5-1 SEC) @ Kentucky (7-1, 5-1 SEC) – 3:30 PM ET, CBS

The SEC East will be on the line at 3:30 on Saturday when Georgia travels to Lexington to take on Kentucky. While Kentucky has been one of the best stories in all of college football so far this year (the ‘Cats all the way up at #11 in my computer’s resume rankings) they hadn’t been getting the same respect from my computer’s “best” rankings until the win over Missouri last week, after which the ‘Cats jumped up to right around where they were in the resume ratings (UK currently sits at 14th). However, despite Benny Snell’s tremendous production throughout the year though, the ‘Cats still are not on the level of Georgia. With their only loss coming to a top ten level LSU team on the road and little problems elsewhere, the ‘Dawgs have been one of the most impressive teams in the country to me so far this year. The Kentucky offense is just too one-dimensional, and the UGA defense is just too good. Give me Fromm and Georgia by ten.

Prediction: Georgia 30, Kentucky 20

West Virginia (6-1, 4-1 Big 12) @ Texas (6-2, 4-1 Big Ten) – 3:30 PM ET, FOX

I could use this preview to write about how I predicted Oklahoma State to beat Texas last week, but I wouldn’t do that, would I? Texas was always pretty overrated by the polls and sat in the 20s in my computer rankings. If you don’t remember, I also picked Iowa State to beat West Virginia under very similar circumstances a few weeks back, so both of these teams have fallen victim to the CSD curse, and now, the two face off with the winner receiving an inside track to the Big 12 Championship Game in December. This is essentially a tossup according to my computer model, as West Virginia is a slightly better team but Texas will have the home field edge. I’m going to lean towards the Longhorns here, but if you see this game turn into a shootout, I’d start to feel less confident about that. If Texas can follow the Iowa State formula of just grinding away into this defense, I think they can come out with a win, but it will be close.

Prediction: Texas 33, West Virginia 31

Iowa (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) @ Purdue (4-4, 3-2 Big Ten) – 3:30 PM ET, ESPN2

With Wisconsin and Purdue losing on Saturday, and the model viewing Northwestern as quite overrated (53rd), Iowa is now the new favorite in the Big Ten West in my view, but with the Hawkeyes traveling to the same spot where Ohio State took a beating a couple weeks back, that inside track may be on thin ice, in fact, Vegas is favoring the Boilermakers at home here. Despite that, I’m going to take Nate Stanley on the road to throw all over a struggling Purdue secondary and defy Vegas’ expectations, leading Iowa to win. Stanley put in a poor performance last week against Penn State, but with the hopes that his injured thumb is improving, I think he will rebound and throw well enough to keep the Boilermakers honest. It will be close, but Iowa will keep their Big Ten West hopes alive.

Prediction: Iowa 31, Purdue 27 <- UPSET ALERT & BEST BET ALERT

Penn State (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) @ Michigan (7-1, 5-0 Big Ten) – 3:45 PM ET, ESPN

Because of the disrespect that Penn State (who is top ten in both the normal CSD Computer Rankings and the CSD Computer Resume Rankings) is getting from national media, this game isn’t getting enough attention, but this really is a top-ten team traveling to take on a top-five team, so you better keep your eyes glued to ESPN for this one. As much as I think Penn State is underrated by the college football inteligencia, they aren’t winning this game. Michigan has been near perfect since that seven-point road loss to Notre Dame over two months ago, and I think its more than fair to say that if the two teams played tomorrow on a neutral field, Michigan would be favored in Vegas. Shea Patterson and company will put up points, and the Michigan defense, which has been the best in the country thus far, will shut down McSorley and the Nittany Lions. Give me Michigan by seven.

Prediction: Michigan 32, Penn State 25

Missouri (4-4, 0-4 SEC) @ Florida (6-2, 4-2 SEC) – 4 PM ET, SEC Network

Both of these teams are eliminated from the SEC East race, but Missouri is probably right up there with Purdue as the best .500 team in the nation right now. While you may not be interested in this game because of the lack of stakes, I still highly recommend you check it out, because you will get the chance to see Drew Lock go up against the feared Gator secondary and if you enjoy watching potential NFL QBs develop, this will be the game for you, as Lock will be tested like he rarely has been in his college career. In this duel, I’m picking the UF defense to come through and limit Lock’s extraordinary production. I have little to no confidence in the Missouri secondary to do the same after their performances so far this year, the Tigers allow an average of 8.6 yards per pass, tied for 109th in the country with Coastal Carolina and Charlotte. Feleipe Franks will put in a strong day, and Florida will come out with a win.

Prediction: Florida 32, Missouri 26

Utah (6-2, 4-2 Pac-12) @ Arizona State (4-4, 2-3 Pac-12) – 4 PM ET, Pac-12 Network

Let me mention for a second that this is the third straight week where the Pac-12 Network has had a legit must-watch game. That’s kind of crazy. Utah is all but guaranteed the Pac-12 South title with a win here because of the Utes’ victories over Arizona and USC, but that isn’t the only reason why you should watch this one. Utah has been legitimately awesome lately, and I think it is fair to say that the Utes had the best October of any team in the nation. Over the past month, Utah has beaten Stanford, Arizona, USC, and UCLA by a combined score of 164-69, and have made it all the way up to #6 in my CSD Computer Rankings (This judges who the best teams in college football are right now). Arizona State has the home field edge and is a top 25 team in those same rankings, but Utah is just playing too well right now to blow it at this point. Give me Utah by two possessions.

Prediction: Utah 33, Arizona State 24

Alabama (8-0, 5-0 SEC) @ LSU (7-1, 4-1 SEC) – 8 PM ET, CBS

#1 @ #3 in one of the toughest places to play in the country at night, and yet, Alabama is favored in this game by 15 points… and I’ll think they’ll cover that. Let it be known that I do think that LSU is a little overrated by the committee, my computer rates the Tigers as the #7 team in the nation right now (and just the #8 resume), but even if they were a true #3 level team, Alabama is just too good right now. With Tua Tagovailoa at the helm, I think the Crimson Tide could beat any team in the country by double digits at this point. This one will be much higher scoring than previous Bama-LSU games, but the Tide will control it from start to finish and walk away with a 17 point win.

Prediction: Alabama 39, LSU 22

Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) @ Texas Tech (5-3, 3-2 Big 12) – 8 PM ET, ABC

Texas Tech is better than a lot of people are giving them credit for. The Red Raiders rank in the top 25 of the CSD Computer Rankings, and they’ll host an awesome Oklahoma team in primetime. We all know how tough of a place Lubbock is to play and all the horror stories of top ten teams coming to die in the heart of Texas, but I think that this Oklahoma team is just too good to lose to the Red Raiders. Oklahoma and Texas Tech will get into a shootout, and I just don’t have faith in the TTU defense to get any stops against the high powered OU offense that may be the best in the country. The Sooners currently rank 4th in the country in the CSD Computer Rankings, and I expect them to live up to that billing and win by double digits.

Prediction: Oklahoma 48, Texas Tech 36
