4-1 last week after a lucky 3OT cover by Stanford. 20-25 on the season is still lousy but its not easy getting yourself out of a crater.
All games are Saturday
Louisville @ West Virginia (-13.5) Noon ESPN Gameplan/ Big East Syndication
I'm not sure why this game made Rivals list but it is an important game in the Big East. West Virginia has been playing poor the last couple of weeks and should be more comfortable returning home.
South Carolina @ Arkansas (-4) 7:15 ESPN
South Carolinia is without its star RB Marcus Lattimore and still trying to solve its QB situation under Connor Shaw. The Gamecock defense should give them a chance but something tells me Tyler Wilson will be able to do enough to win this game by a touchdown for the Razorbacks.
LSU (+5) @ Alabama 8 CBS
Two of the most corrupt coaches and programs meet in the oversigning bowl. I am rooting for both teams to lose but we know thats not possible. The winner has a clear path to the National Championship game.
Kansas State (+21) @ Oklahoma State 8PM ESPN 2/ ABC
I'm taking the points here because I expect Kansas State to work the clock and limit the amount of possesions in this game. KState is barely a top 25 team but they are well coached and should keep this a game beyond half.
Oregon (-15) @ Washington 10:30 FSN
A shootout beckons in this one. I'm not too sold on Washington yet but its hard to believe that they won't provide a test for Oregon. Oregon should be able to light up the scoreboard and should pull away late.
