I think Sunday’s headlines are something like “A Wild Week in College Football” due to so many close games and upsets. When the calendar turns to November, odd things can happen. My prediction for the week: between Oregon, K-State, and Bama, someone is losing outright this week. Without further ado…
LSU +9.5 vs Alabama
Despite what seems to be a widespread perception, LSU isn’t a bad team. With two weeks to prepare, I like the Mad Hatter Les Miles to dial up at least one successful fake kick. LSU doesn’t win, but this will be Bama’s closest game of the year – including an eventual National Championship Game.
Oklahoma State +9.5 at Kansas State
Are you ready to live in a world where K-State goes undefeated and goes to the National Title game? I’m not. They’ll either lose this game or their next one (at TCU). So plan for a K-State win by a TD here and me to be against them next week too.
