Ole Miss at Arkansas
JD: Ole Miss hasn’t beaten Arkansas since 2013, but the streak ends this year. Ole Miss wins 35-14 in Little Rock.
BM: Rebs, no contest. 42-28.
No. 2 Georgia at No. 13 LSU
JD: After starting the season 5-0 with wins over Miami and Auburn, LSU was on top of the world before being upset by Florida last week. With Georgia and Alabama still on the schedule, this is when LSU begins its downward spiral. Joe Burrow has his first bad game at home and Georgia wins, 24-17.
BM: LSU finally saw its downfall last week against Florida, and it’s almost impossible to have a bounce-back week against a team like Georgia. It truly looks like Georgia won’t be stopped during the regular season this year, and it won’t happen in this game. Bulldogs win, 27-17.
No. 7 Washington at No. 17 Oregon
JD: If not for some miscues in the fourth quarter against Stanford, Oregon would still be undefeated. I think the Oregon team is better than people are giving it credit for, and with the game being played in Autzen Stadium, the Ducks show America their true colors at home. Oregon wins 34-31.
BM: This game may quietly end up being the best of the week. Oregon is a really hot team that has only been stopped by a top-tier side in Stanford. Meanwhile, Washington remains one of the most impressive defensive sides in the country in a rather impressive PAC-12 this season. I think Washington slows down Oregon and comes out on top. 35-16.
No. 15 Wisconsin at No. 12 Michigan
JD: I was high on Michigan coming into the year, but for the most part the Wolverines have been underwhelming. Shea Patterson hasn’t made the splash many thought he would. The offensive line is decent at best. With all of this in mind, I still think Michigan comes out of its game against Wisconsin with a win considering it’s at the Big House. Michigan’s playoff hopes remain in tact on Saturday, 27-21 Michigan.
BM: Shea Patterson? Never heard of him. Badgers win, 24-20.
No. 19 Colorado at USC
JD: To this point Colorado is undefeated at 5-0, but its record is misleading. Two of its wins have come over 0-5 teams and one has come against a 1-4 team. Colorado hasn’t seen the type of athletes USC has on its roster and that won’t fare well for the Buffaloes with the Trojans being at home. USC wins in a blowout, 48-10.BM: Colorado’s weak schedule is making the team look more impressive than it is. I would love to be proven wrong, but I do not think they can overcome the high level of competition that they’ll be seeing for the first time this season in Los Angeles on Saturday. Trojans win big, 34-14.
