Fearless Rick's 2013-14 College Football Week 12 - Early Games

Welcome to the very best in winning NFL and College Football picks.
Rick Gagliano | November 14-16

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 14

7:30 pm Georgia Tech at Clemson (-10, 57 1/2) - Since their devastating loss to Florida State, the Tigers have recovered nicely with two wins, both on the road, at Maryland and Virginia, and seem to have their offensive motors turning at high RMPs.

Likewise, Georgia Tech has rebounded after three straight losses with three demonstrative wins, and appear headed for a solid bowl appearance, at 6-3. The Yellow Jackets are in a fair position for the ACC Coastal division, but will need help if they can come up with a win here.

The main concern is how the Yellow Jackets have fared on the road, where they are just 2-2. Clemson appears to have the upper hand and may run the table in their remaining games. If they get off to a fast start, Georgia Tech may not be able to come back.

Prediction: Tigers 38 Yellow Jackets 20

Friday, November 15

9:00 pm Washington at UCLA (-2, 62) - UCLA gutted out a 31-26 win at Arizona last week, and are still very much in contention for the PAC-12 South title and a crack at the conference championship, especially with Arizona State on the slate for next week.

Washington is bowl eligible already, as are the Bruins, but the Huskies are only 3-3 in conference and have no realistic shot at catching either Stanford or Oregon in the North division.

The Huskies have not won a road game in the PAC-12 this season and appear to be mailing it in against better squads since their 45-24 loss to the Ducks a month ago. UCLA still has upside potential and the line is no deterrent.

Prediction: Bruins 30 Huskies 17

Saturday, November 16

3:30 pm Georgia at Auburn (-3 1/2, 57) - Many may have forgotten that the Bulldogs were at one time ranked in the top ten, before injuries partially derailed their season, but Georgia has gotten some players back and the fill-ins have had some time to prosper in their roles, making this line a questionable one.

Auburn proved to be clicking on all cylinders in recent wins over Arkansas and Tennessee, winning those by a combined score of 90-40. The Tigers have put up six straight wins, including victories over Ole Miss and Texas A&M. They do get the Bulldogs at home, a distinct advantage in college sports, and will probably be able to exploit the Bulldogs' porous defense, but Aaron Murray is as good a quarterback as there is in the SEC, and he should keep Georgia in until the end.

A close call, but the Bulldogs will prevail and right their season.

Prediction: Bulldogs 41 Tigers 38

3:30 pm Miami (FL) (-3, 50 1/2) at Duke - Flying under the radar most of the season, the Blue Devils have amassed a 7-2 record and are 3-2 in the ACC Coastal with a win over Virginia Tech and a loss to Georgia Tech putting them firmly in the running at a chance to play in the conference championship.

Duke has won five straight and has scored 35 or more points in four of those wins.

The Hurricanes' sloppy play and overconfidence seems to have gotten the better of them, as evidenced by their 42-24 loss to the Hokies at home last week, following their 41-14 destruction at the hands of Florida State. Getting points at home Duke is a solid choice to extend Miami's losing streak to three straight.

Prediction: Blue Devils 28 Hurricanes 24

3:30 pm Michigan State (-7, 43) at Nebraska - With a 4-1 record in conference, Nebraska scored late to upend Michigan on the road, 17-13, last week, putting themselves in position to challenge for the Big Ten's Legends division title and a chance to play Ohio State for the Rose Bowl ticket.

While the 'Huskers have played well throughout, their losses to Minnesota and UCLA were telling, as the offense did too little to keep the defense fresh in both games.

Comparing their win over Michigan to Michigan State's 29-6 drubbing of the Wolverines two weeks ago, it appears that the Spartans have the upper hand with one of the best defenses in the country. The Spartans also had last week off and should be fired up for one of the biggest games in their recent history.

Prediction: Spartans 27 Cornhuskers 14

3:30 pm Oklahoma State (-3, 55 1/2) at Texas - The Longhorns won their sixth straight, knocking off West Virginia in overtime, 47-40, and maintained their 1/2 game lead over Baylor in the Big 12, an important condition, since the winner of the Big 12 regular season does not have to play in a conference championship game, instead, advancing directly to a BCS bowl game.

While Texas is 6-0 in the conference, Oklahoma State is within striking distance at 5-1, making this contest a true test of each team's mettle. The Cowboys lost an unlikely game at West Virginia back in September, the only blemish on their record, but has Baylor and Oklahoma still to face.

Getting a field goal at home may be considered a negative for Texas, but it's a bonus points situation for plungers who want to "Hook 'Em" with the Longhorns.

Prediction: Longhorns 38 Cowboys 28

4:00 pm Utah at Oregon (-28, 64) - While the oddsmakers were prretty convincing in giving Oregon a big edge in this game (opened at -25), the plungers are on the Ducks in force, pushing the line to -28.

Considering that the Utes already beat Stanford earlier in the season and Stanford beat Oregon, giving Utah four touchdowns doesn't seem prudent. Surely, the Ducks could light them up, as they do most teams, but the Utes have a solid defensive unit that will keep the score down. A couple of turnovers or breaks could tip the balance toward Utah.

Prediction: Ducks 27 Utes 17
