College Football Free Predictions, Previews from Winners & Whiners: Week 13

We are at the final full week of college football before conference championship weekend. There were no major upsets within the top 25 other than No. 9 West Virginia losing to Oklahoma State. No. 10 Ohio State had the toughest battle, winning in overtime by one over Maryland.

This is rivalry week although one of the top games doesn’t fit that descrition.  No. 6 Oklahoma takes on No. 12 West Virginia on Friday. The top rivalries feature the Apple Cup featuring No. 8 Washington State against No. 16 Washington on Friday and No. 1 Alabama hosting Auburn on Saturday. But the game of the weekend will be in Columbus with No. 4 Michigan visiting No. 10 Ohio State.

(note: Some of these picks were made by our Editor and are subject to change)

*There might be a few points scored when Oklahoma takes on West Virginia from Morgantown. The Sooners have won five straight games heading into this one after a 55-40 victory over Kansas. Kennedy Brooks rushed for 171 yards and two TDs, while quarterback Kyle Murray had five overall TDs to lead the Sooners. West Virginia is coming off a 45-41 defeat at Oklahoma State. They blew a 31-14 halftime lead thanks to a defense that allowed 604 yards of offense. Go with West Virginia to win this at home.

*Washington and Washington State are vying for more than just apples on Friday. The Huskies have won two straight overall and five straight overall in this series. They are coming off a 42-23 win over Oregon State as Jake Browning threw for three TDs and Myles Gaskin for 135 yards with a score. Washington State has won seven straight games including a 69-28 rout over Arizona this past weekend. Gardner Minshew threw for 473 yards with seven TDs Washington hasn’t covered a game since September. Take the Cougars at home.

*No. 1 Alabama had a brief test against a FCS team last week. The Citadel had the Crimson Tide tied at 10-10 at the half before Alabama woke up and scored 40 points to win 50-17. The Crimson Tide allowed 275 rushing yards to the option offense but did produce 561 total yards. Auburn will have their hands full even though they had little trouble with a former FCS squad in Liberty, 53-0. The Tigers have losses to LSU, Tennessee, Mississippi State and Georgia. They have covered the last two games in this rivalry but they were a better team then. Lay the points with the Tide.

*Ohio State may have been looking ahead after nearly losing at Maryland last week. The Buckeyes were down by 14 in the third quarter but clawed their way back. They were fortunate that the Terps went for two and failed. The Buckeyes allowed 340 rushing yards, which should be a major concern. The Wolverines may have also been looking ahead as they struggled to beat Indiana, 31-20 at home. Shea Patterson threw for 250 yards and a TD but the defense allowed 190 rushing yards. These are two 10-1 teams but have to take the points at home despite OSU’s issues.
