Week 12 College Football Matchup: Minnesota Golden Gophers @ Northwestern Wildcats
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 12:00 ET
Location: Ryan Field, Evanston, IN
College Football Lines: Northwestern -15.5
Over/Under 57.5
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: Big Ten Network

Northwestern has finally hit its stride this year, but now, it has to compete without QB Dan Persa once again. Minnesota has been a frisky team over the course of these last few weeks, though it had some bad moments trying to stop the rushing attack of Wisconsin last week. We just don’t know if the Cats have the ability to win a game by more than two touchdowns against anyone in conference play right now. They’ll get their win to qualify for a bowl game, but it won’t be by more than two TDs.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Minnesota +15.5

Week 12 College Football Matchup: Kentucky Wildcats @ Georgia Bulldogs
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 12:20 ET
Location: Sanford Stadium, Athens, GA
College Football Lines: Georgia -30.5
Over/Under 49
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: SEC Network, ESPN3.com

The question in this game is whether the Wildcats are going to be able to score some points. They have only averaged 17.0 points per game this year, but they have found some modest success of late against some respectable teams. The Georgia defense isn’t the greatest in the world, but the offense is really clicking right now, having scored 108 points over the course of its last two games. We tend to think when push comes to shove that the Cats will be able to get a couple TDs on the board, and if that’s the case, we have confidence that QB Aaron Murray will be able to do the rest, as he continues to rewrite the Georgia passing record books.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Kentucky/Georgia Over 49

Week 12 College Football Matchup: LSU Tigers @ Ole Miss Rebels
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 7:00 ET
Location: Vaught Hemingway Stadium, Oxford, MS
College Football Lines: LSU -30
Over/Under 46
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: ESPN

We questioned why the Bayou Bengals were favored by six touchdowns last week and were absolutely right about it. This week, we’re questioning why they’re getting the nod by more than four TDs on the road in a conference game. Ole Miss is terrible. There are no two ways around it. Getting to 10 in this game would be the accomplishment of all accomplishments. That being said, it is Senior Day in Oxford, and it is also the last home game for Head Coach Houston Nutt before he steps down from the program at season’s end. We expect to see at least a little bit of fight in the Rebels, and if that’s the case, they should stick within four scores.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Ole Miss +30

Week 12 College Football Matchup: Kansas State Wildcats @ Texas Longhorns
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 8:00 ET
Location: Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, TX
College Football Lines: Texas -8
Over/Under 54
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: Longhorn Network

The Longhorns looked like they had a shot at the Cotton Bowl before last week’s loss against Missouri on the road. They can still get back to that plateau, but they really need to get these last two games in the win column to do that. We just don’t see what is up with all of the hating on the Wildcats. They had a shot of taking down Okie State in Stillwater, something that we really don’t think mighty Oklahoma is going to be able to do, and they did take down a game Texas A&M team last week at home in four overtimes. Even if they don’t win this one, they should figure out how to keep it close. Texas’ passing game just isn’t good enough to get the job done, especially with the running game having to get used to life without RB Fozzie Whittaker.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Kansas State +8

Week 12 College Football Matchup: Navy Midshipmen @ San Jose State Spartans
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 4:00 ET
Location: Spartan Stadium, San Jose, CA
College Football Lines: Navy -5.5
Over/Under 60
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: Local TV

The Middies have won two straight games and are suddenly back in the bowl discussion once again this year. That being said, this is a tough road still to reach that coveted 6-6 mark. San Jose State has been on the wrong side of three straight tough losses, and it would love to get back in the win column in this one, but we just don’t see it happening. Remember that the Spartans rank No. 102 in the land in rush defense, and you know that the Middies aren’t going to make that number go down any. It’s only going up, just like Navy’s record.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Navy -5.5

Week 12 College Football Matchup: USC Trojans @ Oregon Ducks
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 8:00 ET
Location: Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR
College Football Lines: Oregon -14.5
Over/Under 67
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: ABC

Last week, we played on the over in the Stanford/Oregon game with a tremendous amount of success. Now, we take a quick look at what Oregon has been able to do to the Men of Troy over the course of the last two seasons… They won 53-32 in the Coliseum and 47-20 here in Eugene. The recipe is once again there for just a ton of points to be put on the board, especially with RB LaMichael James continually showing his abilities to score from legitimately anywhere on the field. The Trojans won’t back down, and it wouldn’t surprise us if they score in the mid-30s in this one as well, but in the end, this is a day for the Ducks to shine in a high scoring contest.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: USC/Oregon Over 67

Week 12 College Football Matchup: Mississippi State Bulldogs @ Arkansas Razorbacks
Date: Saturday, November 19th, 3:30 ET
Location: War Memorial Stadium, Little Rock, AR
College Football Lines: Arkansas -13
Over/Under 53
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: CBS

Oh, these crazy SEC West games… Arkansas hasn’t had a lot of things come easily this year, but it has gotten the job done when push has come to shove. Mississippi State is a very, very difficult team to blow out, especially for how well that it tends to slow games down. That’s the key in this one. If the Hogs get up and really start to get the ball up the field in a hurry with QB Tyler Wilson, it’s going to be really hard for the three-headed monster at quarterback to keep up for MSU. However, if that defense can do what it did last week and keep the Arkansas offense down to a dull roar, there’s a great chance for the visitors to stick inside the number in the annual game that the Razorbacks play in Little Rock.

Week 12 NCAA Football Pick: Mississippi State +13
