Week 12 College Football Matchup: Toledo Rockets @ Central Michigan Chippewas
Date: Friday, November 18th, 8:00 ET
Location: Kelly Shorts Stadium, Mount Pleasant, MI
College Football Lines: Toledo -14.5
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: ESPNU

Okay Toledo, can you keep this game under 120 total points? The last two weeks, it hasn’t been successful, accounting for 129 in a win against Western Michigan and 123 in a loss against Northern Illinois. The sad thing about this recent stretch is that the Rockets really didn’t play that poorly on the defensive side of the ball before these last two games. This is the final game for the Chippewas on the year, and it’s probably merciful for a team that is 3-8 and has been the definitive bottom feeding team in the MAC West all season long. CMU just doesn’t have the horses to be able to score 30 or 35 points in this game, and if it gets stuck in the mid-20s or so, this game isn’t going to reach this ‘total’. However, after watching the Rockets drop 60+ in back to back weeks, we just aren’t convinced that they are going to get out of the low-30s this time around. Take the hosts and the generous point spread.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Central Michigan +14.5

Week 12 College Football Matchup: Oklahoma State Cowboys @ Iowa State Cyclones
Date: Friday, November 18th, 8:00 ET
Location: Jack Trice Stadium, Ames, IA
College Football Lines: Oklahoma State -25
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN

The Cowboys are only two wins away from the BCS National Championship Game, but things aren’t necessarily going to be easy this week. This is a bad, bad look ahead spot for the Pokes, especially off of the big time whooping of the Red Raiders last week in Lubbock. Iowa State had a bye week last week to prepare for this one, and after four straight losses, it has won two in a row. This is a team that is one win away from a bowl game this year, and this, as sad as it sounds, might be the best shot that it has. The Cyclones aren’t going to pull off the upset, but we do expect to see a game that is competitive for quite some time. If QB Brandon Weeden doesn’t play well for the full four quarters, the Cyclones could be well on their way to pull off an upset that would shock the entire nation.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Iowa State +25
