Week 10 Line-up

Here you go…I’ll try to get standings out tomorrow….

  • Nebraska at KU (-19)
  • Texas (-3) at Okie St
  • Texas Tech (-21) at Baylor
  • Wildcard: LSU (-7) at Alabama
  • Wildcard: New England (-5) at Indy

KUNebraska at KU
Who, back in August, would have thought that KU would be favored by 19 in any game in the month of November. What a crazy ride it has been….and one that should not be derailed at the hands of the Big Red Nation.

Over the past three weeks, KU has established itself with the running game. Last week MacAnderson rolled up 186, the majority of which came in the first quarter to set the tone for the rest of the game. Expect more of the same this week as KU faces a putrid run D in Nebraska. KU forces eight in the boxes and blows it out in the middle of the third quarter. KU covers.

Oh…and it is worth noting, KU is this year’s Vegas darling, covering the spread in every game this season.

TexasTexas at Okie St
This should be a good one in Stilwater. Texas continues to unimpress week after week while the Pokes seem to have regained their stride the Friday night embarrassment against non-qualifier U (aka Troy). I’ll take the Pokes, playing at Boone’s Farm, and the points on this one.

TechTech at Baylor
The second coming of Taurean (Shannon Woods) has been relegated to the third team…are the wheels coming off the Pirate Express. Make no mistake about it…Leach does not eff around. Lose in Stilwater, fire you D-coordinator. Don’t live up to the hype…ride the pine. Tech should make a statement this week and covers easily

Wildcard: Alabama at LSU — Pure talent that is hyper motivated vs superior coaching and points. This is a tough one as you know slick Nick is goin to pull out all the stops to make a statement here. Saban would love nothing more than for the game’s storyline to center around how the Tigers were out-coached. Les feels the pressure as well and could choke this one away. Damn I’m torn and making my decision based on what I feel everyone will not….roll Tide.

Wildcard: New England vs. Indy — How can Indy not feel disrespected on this one? The Colts keep it close on the play of Freeny. Colts cover.
