Fearless Rick's 2013-14 College Football Week 11 - Early Games

Welcome to the very best in winning NFL and College Football picks.

Thursday, November 7

7:30 pm Oklahoma at Baylor (-15, 72 1/2) - Thursday night starts off with a real blast as the Sooners seek to establish dominance in the Big 12, though 7-0 Baylor, at home and undefeated, will certainly have other ideas. Huge line here due to Baylor's seemingly unstoppable offense (over 700 yards per game) will test the Oklahoma defense because the Bears are leading the nation in scoring at a wicked pace - 63.9 ppg.

Having had issues moving the ball against West Virginia and TCU - though they won both - and in their 36-20 loss to Texas, the Sooners may find the Baylor defense giving, though not necessarily breakable.

While Baylor is a team that the Sooners will have to find ways to slow down, they had some practice in their last win, a 38-30 squeaker over Texas Tech, and an additional week of practice to prepare, as has Baylor. The Bears will score plenty, but so will the Sooners, who haven't given up more than 36 points this season. Their defense will keep this one close and exciting.

Prediction: Bears 44 Sooners 37

9:00 pm Oregon (-10, 61 1/2) at Stanford - In case the Big 12 isn't enough to keep your interest, at about half time of the Oklahoma-Baylor game, this PAC-12 monster match-up kicks off.

Oregon is seeking a trip to the national championship and Stanford is the team that kept them from that last season, knocking off the Ducks, 17-14, in overtime nearly a year ago. Since then, the Ducks have reeled off 10 straight victories, including this year's 8-0 mark.

Will history repeat and keep the Ducks from a shot at the national title they've been chasing for five years? Unlikely. Even though this game is at Stanford, Oregon has had them in their sights since Spring practice and will not be denied this time.

Prediction: Ducks 38 Cardinal 24

Friday, November 8

8:30 pm Louisville (-28, 49) at Connecticut - Louisville's loss a few weeks ago to UCF derailed any hopes of going unbeaten and maybe having a shot at a national title game, which was, at best, a long shot.

With nothing to lose and a possible BCS game to gain (they'll need help), the Cardinals should be loose and lively against the 0-7 Huskies, who were last seen being dismantled by UCF on October 26, 62-17.

The once-proud Huskies have fallen a long way in the last two years and this game will be yet another nail in their quickly-closing coffin.

Prediction: Cardinals 48 Huskies 13

Saturday, November 9

12:00 pm Missouri (-14 1/2, 56) at Kentucky - 0-4 in the SEC and just 2-6 overall, the Kentucky program is in need of a conference win, though this may not be the spot for that. Later in the month, the Wildcats may have a better chance against Vanderbilt, Georgia or Tennessee, while their hoops team makes most of the headlines in the Bluegrass state.

Despite their conference failures, the Wildcats did come close in losses to South Carolina (35-28) and Mississippi State (28-22), and both of those games were on the road, whereas they are hosting the Tigers.

Missouri's only loss of the season was a fourth-quarter and OT meltdown two weeks back against South Carolina, a deflating, 27-24, defeat, but the defense showed plenty of moxie last week, hammering Tennessee, 31-3. The Mizzou are still in the driver's seat to meet Alabama for the SEC championship and a win here is mandated, though they will likely find the Wildcats pretty geared up. Missouri will escape, but be hard-tested.

Prediction: Tigers 35 Wildcats 27

12:00 pm Auburn (-7 1/2, 55) at Tennessee - Road tests seem to be the order of the week for ranked SEC squads and once again, the oddsmakers seem to be discounting the ability of the Auburn Tigers.

Last week, they pummeled Arkansas on the road, 35-17, when favored by just nine points, and here they are just over a TD favorite, which is something of a lark, as the Vols were just pounded by Missouri last week, 31-3.

Tennessee's young team is very green and unsteady, especially on offense, and the Tigers should have their way with them, keeping in mind that an Auburn win here and next week at home vs. Georgia, gives them a huge shot at Alabama on November 30.

Prediction: Tigers 34 Volunteers 10

3:00 pm USC (-16 1/2, 55 1/2) at California - Left for dead earlier in the season after the firing of head coach Lane Kiffen, the Trojans have responded with three straight PAC-12 wins, over Arizona, Utah and Oregon State.

The Trojans may have the best defense in the conference, yielding just 18.7 points and 323.6 yards on average. Cal hasn't shown much of anything, compiling a 1-8 record, their only win a 37-30 win over Portland State in week two. The Golden Bears came close in last week's 33-28 home loss to Arizona, but there really isn't much of a case for the Bears winning here against a hot USC squad.

Cals defense is porous, allowing 42.8 ppg, one of the worst in Division-1. They should make the improving USC offense look awe-inspiring.

Prediction: Trojans 42 Golden Bears 6
