Week 10 College Football Matchup: Louisville Cardinals @ West Virginia Mountaineers
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 12:00 ET
Location: Mountaineer Field, Morgantown, WV
College Football Lines: West Virginia -13
Over/Under 52
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN Game Plan

Don’t you just get the feeling that the Mountaineers are going to somehow screw up what should have been a slam dunk spot in the BCS this year? This team just has no business being considered amongst the top teams in the country, and we just don’t know if it is going to be able to put this Louisville team away as it should. This is the equivalent of the Super Bowl for the ‘Ville, which really needs a win if it wants to make it to a bowl game this season. We’re taking the points in this one and hoping that the Cardinals show up in a big way against a West Virginia team that we just don’t think is all that great.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Louisville +13

Week 10 College Football Matchup: Duke Blue Devils @ Miami Hurricanes
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 3:00 ET
Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami, FL
College Football Lines: Miami -15.5
Over/Under 56
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN Game Plan

The Hurricanes are really in need of a big time game, and this might be just what the doctor ordered. It has been a long week after the debacle at home against Virginia on national television, and though this spot isn’t nearly as interesting as the one against the Cavvies, it is certainly a more winnable fixture. The Dookies have improved with Head Coach David Cutcliffe at the helm, but that doesn’t mean that the team is ready to come down to the Sunshine State and hang with the Canes.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Miami -15.5

Week 10 College Football Matchup: Purdue Boilermakers @ Wisconsin Badgers
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 12:00 ET
Location: Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, WI
College Football Lines: Wisconsin -25.5
Over/Under 57
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: Big Ten Network

We’re going to back the Boilers in this one just in case Wisconsin just has a total meltdown, which is something that we could absolutely see happening. Sure, we know that the Badgers really haven’t been touched this year at home, and we know that Purdue was just absolutely toasted on the road in the Big House last week, but we just aren’t so sure that the Badgers are going to come out of the blocks in this one with the heart of a champion. The Boilermakers can move the football, and they are going to feel like they can have a shot in this game if they can find some way to keep this ground game of the Badgers from trampling them. Even still, this is a heck of a lot of points in a traditional rivalry game in the Big Ten, and we intend on taking advantage of every single one of those points given to us.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Purdue +25.5

Week 10 College Football Matchup: Vanderbilt Commodores @ Florida Gators
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 12:20 ET
Location: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville, FL
College Football Lines: Florida -13.5
Over/Under 44.5
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: SEC Network

The Commodores aren’t an easy out this year by any means, but we have to be realistic. The Gators really had no chance of surviving the month of October. There just aren’t many teams in the land that could have played with Alabama, LSU, and Georgia in three consecutive games. That being said, this is an easy one again versus Vandy, and we think with a healthy QB John Brantley and all of those speedsters on the outside, that there is just going to be too much for the Dores to be able to hang in the Swamp. This is a series that is just so lopsided, it isn’t even funny. That will continue on homecoming for the blue and orange after a series of difficult games.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Florida -13

Week 10 College Football Matchup: Michigan Wolverines @ Iowa Hawkeyes
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 12:00 ET
Location: Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City, IA
College Football Lines: Michigan -4
Over/Under 58
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN

For all of the reasons that we like the Hawkeyes in this one, be sure to check our college football upsets. We’re doing the rare double dip though, as we really think that Iowa is the superior team in this matchup at home and will win this game outright, going away with its hardnosed attitude against a relatively flimsy team.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Iowa +4

Week 10 College Football Matchup: LSU Tigers @ Alabama Crimson Tide
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 8:00 ET
Location: Bryant Denny Stadium, Tuscaloosa, AL
College Football Lines: Alabama -5
Over/Under 41.5
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: CBS

So much has been made about this game over the past two weeks, and we are going to wage in with our two cents as well. We give LSU credit for doing a lot this year. The team has gone on the road and taken out West Virginia, and it played in a neutral site game against Oregon, a team that played in the National Championship Game last year. The defense is amazing on both sides, and the offense has its sneaky abilities to get the ball up the field on both sides as well. The question here from our standpoint is who is going to stop RB Trent Richardson. We just think that Richardson is going to come forth with a dominating effort in this one, winning himself the Heisman Trophy in the process and ensuring that his team is going to be the No. 1 team in the nation, in all likelihood without any dispute for the rest of the year. It’s payback time for the Tide after they were beaten by the Bayou Bengals in Baton Rouge a season ago.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Alabama -5

Week 10 College Football Matchup: Oregon Ducks @ Washington Huskies
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 10:30 ET
Location: Husky Stadium, Seattle, WA
College Football Lines: Oregon -16.5
Over/Under 74
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN

The Ducks are a great team, and they have to be looking forward to running the table, winning the Pac-12, and ultimately going on to the Rose Bowl or the National Championship Game. They get RB LaMichael James back this week as well, which is great news against a team that was trounced for over 400 rushing yards by Stanford two weeks ago. That being said, U-Dub isn’t going to lay down and die in this game. Its hopes for the Rose Bowl are probably said and done, but don’t count this team totally out of this game. QB Keith Price is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the nation, and RB Chris Polk has numbers that, on a different team, would make him a Heisman Trophy candidate. The U of O needs to be really careful on the road in this one.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Washington +16.5

Week 10 College Football Matchup: Kansas State Wildcats @ Oklahoma State Cowboys
Date: Saturday, November 5th, 8:00 ET
Location: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, OK
College Football Lines: Oklahoma State -21
Over/Under 69.5
Week 10 College Football TV Schedule: ABC

Forget about is, Kansas State. The Wildcats had their bubble busted last week against the Sooners, and now, they have to leave the comforts of the Little Apple to go on the road to Stillwater, one of the toughest places to play in the entire country. The game is on primetime and on national television, and it is going to be a coronation of sorts to put the Pokes in the No. 2 slot in the nation. There is no way that the Cowboys are getting challenged in this game, and in the second half, we fully expect to see KSU lie down and die just as it did against Oklahoma when its offense really started to get on a role. Expect five or six touchdown passes from QB Brandon Weeden in a romp over the Wildcats.

Week 10 NCAA Football Pick: Oklahoma State -21
