I believe one of the rules when predicting the out comes for college football is stay away from road favorites. The reasoning seems to be logical, these are not professionals they make mistakes. Ad an audience of thousands of screaming, probably intoxicated, rowdy and hostile fans those mistakes are amplified. So, the trendy trend this week seems to be the top ranked teams will fall as road favorites. TCU is the only lock but 35 points is whomp dinger. Auburn, Oregon, Michigan State will all win on the road, MSU is getting almost a touchdown so that looks to be the lock of the week. BCS haters will have to wait another week for the unbeaten big conference teams to loose so Boise State can sneak into the national championship game. All these top ranked teams on the road are must watch, it looks to be another great week in college football land.
With quarterback, Kirk Cousins having thrown 14 touchdowns a receiver with 4 touchdowns and another with 5. With two backs who can score from anywhere on the field, Edwin Baker and Le'Veon Bell. Both underclassmen, Baker the sophomore has 7 touchdowns and the freshman Bell has 8 end zone celebrations. Iowa and quarterback Stanzi are coming off a tough home loss against Wisconsin and will be motivated again at home. But the Spartans are getting 6 and a half, lock it in.
The Clemson Tigers have a top 20 ranked defense. A speedy running back in Andre Ellington. This game will be more about how bad Boston College is. Not ranked above 60 in any major team statistic. Ya, a road favorite, you beazy.
Oklahoma St -4
My favorite college coach let me down last week against a tough Nebraska team. Gundy and his Cowboys can slang the ball down field. With 21 touchdowns already this season and rankled 3rd in passing Junior Brandon Weeden will lead his team to an impressive road victory.
4th in points against, the Missouri Tiger have a tough team identity on that side of the ball. Ranked near the bottom in rushing yards they might be too reliant on the passing game.
Big in state game in a big state. Will be close by the rule of most great rivalry games are close, closer than seven and a half points.
Cal won big last week, look for them to stumble on the road and the chatter about coach Tedford's job security will continue.
Ohio state is good but not that goods on the road. Minnesota looses by two touchdowns. Have a safe but terrifying Halloween. Lates
