San Diego St @ 22 Michigan - This is a no brainer trap game for a Michigan team that has won some pretty emotional games. Some people think the Brady Hoke leaving San Diego St to take over at Michigan is an advantage for Michigan since he knows the players so well, but college football is an emotional sport, and this game at the Big House is going to be San Diego St's Rose Bowl, and the most important football game most of these kids ever play in. Michigan should win because their roster is better, but it'll be close.
I'm taking Michigan at home.
14 Arkansas @ 3 Alabama - Arkansas are good, but Alabama are national championship contenders... and they're playing at home. I like Arkansas this year to be good but not good enough to beat the Crimson Tide at home.
I'm taking Alabama at home.
2 LSU @ 16 W Virginia - LSU were my preason prediction to win it all this year and they're starting to look pretty good. This week W. Virginia found out that the SEC wants nothing to do with them, so that could fuel the WVU players, but do the student athletes really care about that stuff? I suppose they may as a matter of pride, but not enough to fuel a victory over a team as good as LSU.
I'm taking LSU on the road.
7 Oklahoma St @ 8 Texas A&M - The Aggies are incredibly lucky that this year happens to be a home game against the Cowboys. A&M is historically one of the toughest places to play, and I expect their defense to benefit a great deal from the crowd noise.
I'm taking Texas A&M at home.
11 Florida St @ 21 Clemson - Clemson are coming off of an emotional win while the Seminoles are coming off of a painful loss. Florida St. are simply the better team in this game. Clemson always lose games like this.
I'm taking Florida State on the road.
