Texas at Texas Tech: Both teams are looking for a bounce back win. Texas got boat-raced by Oklahoma and looked abysmal against Kansas. Tech got manhandled by Kansas State. Texas is worried about Seth Doege picking them apart. The redshirts from Texas Tech’s magical ’08 win under Mike Leach are now seniors. Texas Tech will have its Lone Star Pride on display.
Nebraska at Michigan State: Nebraska wants to seal off the Big Ten Legends division. Michigan State needs to save face. Trends collide here. The Cornhuskers have looked poor outside Nebraska: losing to UCLA, losing badly to Ohio State and nearly losing to Northwestern. Michigan State has been almost as awful at home. The Spartans have lost three times at The Woodshed. They have yet to cover a home spread. Bad news: MSU is worried about its fair weather fans. Good news: MSU has been good enough the past three years to have fair weather fans.
Ole Miss at Georgia: Can Georgia avoid the let down after Mark Richt regained control of the SEC East? Ole Miss has been tenacious this first season under Hugh Freeze. They have been the most successful team against Alabama thus far. They are 7-1 against the spread and 4-0 in the SEC.
