Need some help picking games this weekend? CN is here to help. Find out what the staff thinks about the top five games of the weekend right here.
Chris Williams – CN Publisher
(35-10 on the season)
Kansas @ Iowa State – Normally I would just be a homer
here and pick the Clones, but I need to keep adding to my lead in the standings.
I'll go with my gut and take the Jayhawks 24-13.
Missouri @ Nebraska – There aren't two teams in the
nation that I hate more. I wish that somehow, some way, they could both lose.
Unfortunately that's not possible, so I'll take the Huskers 31-27.
Oklahoma @ Texas A&M –
Oklahoma impressed me a lot last week with
their win over Missouri. I'm going to take the Sooners in
this one 27-21.
Boston College @ Wake Forrest – All wake has been doing is
winning, and all anybody does is disrespect the Deacons. I'm taking Wake in a
big win for that up and coming program. 34 – 27
LSU @ Tennessee – I'll take LSU in this one. Just a
more solid football team. 20 – 13
Deace – CN Founder (32-13 on the season)
@ Iowa State - Iowa
will be their final win of the season.
Nebraska - Missouri...only
because I disdain Nebraska more.
Texas A&M - Texas
A&M...the Aggies get their signature win.
College @ Wake Forrest -
physical for the Demon Deacons.
Tennessee - LSU...they're
the better team despite what the record says.
Jack Whitver – CN Ambassador (29-16 on the season)
Kansas @ Iowa State - ISU 24 KU
Missouri @ Nebraska - NU 17 MU
Oklahoma @ Texas A&M - OU 34 TA&M
Boston College @ Wake Forrest - BC 16 WF
LSU @ Tennessee - UT 17 LSU 10
Vander Sanden – Former ISU Team Captain/CN Ambassador (29-16 on the
Kansas @ Iowa State - I think this is the game ISU
finally puts together. Iowa State 21
Missouri @ Nebraska - Big game for the Big XII
North. Nebraska holds off Mizzou
in a thriller
Oklahoma @ Texas A&M - Can't go wrong with Oklahoma here. They prove they can win big without
Boston College @ Wake Forrest - Going with my gut on this one,
College over W.
LSU @ Tennessee - Rocky Top here we go…Tenn wins a thriller over
LSU in a very competitive and exciting game.
Blum – CN Columnist (31-14 on the season)
Kansas @ Iowa State - Iowa State. The Cyclones haven't lost to
the Jayhawks at home since 1996. Being an underdog at home to a one win
conference team with a third-string quarterback should be a massive slap in the
face. If the good guys don't win this one, it may be all she wrote for the rest
of the year. ISU should be able to attack Kansas through the air. KU is actually worse
against the pass than ISU. They are 117th in the country. The boys
need this one badly. Iowa State 24 Kansas
Missouri @ Nebraska - Nebraska. Both teams are in danger of ruining a
potentially great year. As much as I like Chase Daniel, I don't believe he can
carry Mizzou in a tough atmosphere in Lincoln. Winner paves the way to KC. Nebraska
27 Mizzou 23.
Oklahoma @ Texas A&M - Oklahoma. Is
anybody very comfortable with the fact that Texas A&M and Coach Fran control
their own destiny to the Big 12 Championship? I know I'm not. They are due to
stumble and this is a good spot to do so. Too much OU defense. Oklahoma 24 Texas A&M 13.
Boston College @ Wake Forest - Boston College. Ok, let me get a few things
Forest is ranked.
Rutgers is in the top 15. Louisville is going to be
ranked in the top 3 next week. This makes me a little queasy. For that reason,
College will put the world
back on its normal track. Boston
College 30 Wake Forest 24.
LSU @ Tennessee-
LSU. I have a
long running joke with anybody that will listen that all SEC games end 17-14.
Just watch this week and you will be amazed the number of 17-14 scores in that
football-drunk area of the country. LSU 17 UT 14.
