Bill Marsau:

Baylor @ Oklahoma: Oklahoma – The Sooners show up in a big way at home and shut down the Baylor offense.

Iowa @ Minnesota: Iowa – New life offense comes through in a big way up North as the Hawkeyes outscore the Gophers.

Texas A&M @ Auburn: Auburn – The Tigers defense stands tall and shuts down the Aggies offense.

Notre Dame @ Arizona State: Notre Dame – This should be a high scoring game, but the Fighting Irish will come out on top.

Iowa State @ Kansas: Iowa State – The running game shows up again and the Cyclones wear down the already shaky Jayhawk defense.

Florida Atlantic @ North Texas: North Texas – McCarney’s young team has fallen short in most games this year but will rise up and come together and win one for the fans at Apogee Stadium.

Kansas State @ TCU: TCU – The Horned Frogs high powered offense is going to be too much for the Wildcats to stop.

Alabama @ LSU: Alabama – LSU will come ready to play as they could jump into the top 10 if they win, but Alabama won’t let that happen and prevails in Death Valley.

Ohio State @ Michigan State: Michigan State – The Spartans are a long shot for the College Football Playoff, but the Buckeyes are an even longer shot. No way is MSU going to give up any ground.

Oregon @ Utah: Oregon – Oregon will have their hands full with the penetration Utah’s defense has been known to create in both the passing and the run game. But in the end, Oregon’s rapid-paced offense will be too much for the Utes.
