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

Welcome to the very best in winning NFL and College Football picks.
Rick Gagliano | November 28-30, 2013

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 28

7:30 pm Texas Tech at Texas (-4 1/2, 66 1/2) - The Longhorn defense will have to stand up here as the Red Raiders score at just under 38 points per game and the Texas offense has been somewhat depleted by injuries.

Texas Tech has lost four in a row; Texas has to forget the 38-13 beating they took on November 16 from Oklahoma State and finish their home schedule with a win. They have to hope Oklahoma knocks off Oklahoma State on Saturday and they find a way to beat Baylor next weekend in order to win the Big 12 and garner a BCS bid.

With the extra tie off to recuperate and prepare, watch out for a quick Longhorn lead and many more points through the porous Tech defense.

Prediction: Longhorns 38 Red Raiders 28

7:30 pm Ole Miss at Mississippi State (-3, 56) - The Bulldogs need a win here to become bowl eligible, but they get home field against the arch-rival Rebels.

Mississippi had won four straight before bumping into Missouri last week in a 24-10 loss. Big edge to the Bulldogs who have only won two SEC games, but have kept scores close in their losses.

Ought to be a good, close game, won by the home team, which has captured eight of the last nine in this annual series.

Prediction: Bulldogs 30 Rebels 21

Friday, November 29

12:00 pm Iowa at Nebraska (-3, 48) - Iowa has quietly compiled a 7-4 record, which helps explain the short odds here. Truthfully, Nebraska hasn't lived up to expectations, just barely getting past Penn State last week, 23-20, while the Hawkeyes took down Michigan, 24-21.

A close call, as the game could turn on turnovers or special teams, but the 'Huskers can get into a better bowl game with a win. Both teams are good, but Nebraska will want to go out on a winning note at home.

Prediction: Cornhuskers 27 Hawkeyes 20

3:30 pm Fresno State (-9, 71) at San Jose State - Good opportunity to get a look at one of only five undefeated teams in the country, 10-0 Fresno State, which should be offered a BCS spot with a win here over the 5-6 Spartans.

The Bulldogs have won four of the last five meetings, usually by healthy margins, but dropped their last game to the Spartans, 27-24, though that was in 2011. Even at home, it's difficult to conceive a scenario in which San Jose State can win this game, so the wise choice is the Bulldogs.

Prediction: Bulldogs 49 Spartans 21

3:30 pm Washington State at Washington (-14, 65) - A real rivalry here, as the Cougars have won two straight, over Arizona and Utah, to reach bowl eligibility at 6-5.

Head-to-head these two are dead even at 5-5 over the last ten years, but Washington State has not won at Washington since 2007.

The Huskies are probably not two touchdowns better than their in-state rivals; an upset looms large.

Prediction: Cougars 38 Huskies 35

7:00 pm Oregon State at Oregon (-21 1/2, 69) - As unlikely as it may seem, Oregon has actually lost two of their last three, their BCS hopes dashed and they may come into this game a bit deflated after Arizona shucked them, 42-16, last week. The Beavers had to have been thrilled at that result, though they were hammered by Washington, 69-27, last Saturday.

A short work-week for both teams means that maybe there will be errors on both sides, but the Ducks have the ability to overcome most obstacles, and honestly, Oregon State doesn't possess enough defense to scare anyone. Oregon is 6-3-1 ATS the past ten seasons, including last year's 48-24 slaughter on the road.

The Ducks will get their offense back on track and may cover the O/U all by themselves.

Prediction: Ducks 56 Beavers 23

Saturday, November 30

12:00 pm Florida State (-27, 44 1/2) at Florida - Despite the enormous spread offered, one can only go with the Seminoles, who are 11-0 and have rolled their past three opponents by a combined 198-20 score. Scary.

The Gators lost at Georgia Southern last week, 26-20, extending their losing streak to six games. They're in no condition to challenge the Seminoles, who are heading to the ACC championship game and are a big choice to compete in the national championship.

This traditional season-ender for both teams has often produced upsets, but it doesn't appear that will be the case this time around.

Prediction: Seminoles 48 Gators 7

12:00 pm Minnesota at Michigan State (-14 1/2, 41) - Michigan State has been devastating opponents all season and are a dark horse to play for a national championship with a win here and a victory over Ohio State in the Big Ten title game.

While the Golden Gophers have played well and will be bowling come December, their offense is somewhat deficient, which is a big problem against the Spartans, who are allowing just 236.7 yards per game, which is the best in the nation, and giving up only 12.5 points, fourth-best overall.

There's a very good chance Minnesota will not find the end zone offensively and will have to settle for field goals, if they can manage to find their way inside the Spartans' 30-yard line. Could be a real rout.

Prediction: Spartans 42 Golden Gophers 6

12:00 pm Ohio State (-14 1/2, 61) at Michigan - Ummm, hate to disappoint Wolverine fans, but your guys are going to get monkey-hammered by the Buckeyes, who are 11-0 and can already smell the roses or a possible national championship.

The Wolverines have been a major disappointment with losses in three of their last four games, the only win a 27-19, triple-overtime victory at Northwestern, two weeks back.

Ohio State sees no issues with the Michigan defense, allowing 25.1 ppg, against some questionable competition. Ohio State's defense isn't what it could be, but it's certainly enough to snuff Michigan, again, as they have eight of the past ten years.

Prediction: Buckeyes 38 Wolverines 17

12:00 pm Duke (-5, 58) at North Carolina - Duke can get to ten wins in a season for the first time in school history with a win, which would also enable them to play Florida State for the ACC championship next week.

That may not be such an easy deal, as the Tar Heels have won five straight after losing five of their first six. The Tar Heels are also 4-2 at home, their most recent conquest an 80-20 explosion over Old dominion last Saturday.

North Carolina will be going to a bowl game regardless of the outcome here, but their travels could be especially sweet with a win over their chief rival. Home field doesn't hurt, either.

Prediction: Tar Heels 30 Blue Devils 21
