Ryan Harklau:

Baylor @ Oklahoma-  Oklahoma looked extremely impressive physically in person.  I don’t see them losing three games in the Big 12.  Oklahoma by 3.

Iowa @ Minnesota-  Minnesota is now starting the tough part of their schedule. I believe Iowa will win by 7 in Minnesota.

Texas A&M @ Auburn;  Auburn may be the second-best team in the country behind TCU.  I know the “experts” don’t have it that way.  Auburn by 14 at home.

Notre Dame @ Arizona State-  It depends which Notre Dame team or ASU team shows up.  Both have been underwhelming with their wins.  Flipped a quarter and tails has Notre Dame winning.

Iowa State @ Kansas-  Must win…for both teams mentally.  They both are counting on winning this game.  Iowa State finds a way to win by 3.

Florida Atlantic @ North Texas-  This is an interesting game with FAU head coach Charlie Partridge coming to Dallas to face his old boss Dan McCarney.  North Texas has had its staff in place longer and will win by a touchdown.

Kansas State @ TCU-  Best team in the nation (TCU) wins by 14 at home!

Alabama @ LSU- LSU had a big win at home against Ole Miss.  I don’t believe they can repeat against Alabama.  Roll Tide by 7.

Ohio State @ Michigan State-  Battle of the Big Ten.  I believe Michigan State wins by 3 in East Lansing.

Oregon @ Utah-  Dangerous game for Oregon.  Right when they’re getting brought back into the national playoff contention they have a tough game at Utah.  Must win for Oregon to make the playoffs.  Oregon by 7.
