The haters have been coming out.... Terry Norvelle, but I've been on a roll and it continues this week.

Here we go.
No. 13 Wisconsin +14 @ No. 3 Ohio State
Everyone is going to ride off Wisconsin for losing to the Fighting Illini but I think Wisconsin lost their focus looking ahead to this game.
Wisconsin still has a really good defense and rank first and almost every category: points per game, red zone defense, total defense.
They also lead the nation in time of possession which means Ohio State's offense will be on the sideline for most the game.
Ohio State wins, but Wisconsin keeps it close.
Auburn @ LSU -10.5
I love LSU to win big here.
Auburn has not won at LSU since 1999 and has lost to LSU nine out their last 12 times.
LSU has scored more than 40 points in their previous nine games before Mississippi State and scored 36 before pulling their starters.
Also, Bo Nix is not good against top 30 scoring defenses. In those games, Nix has a completion percentage of 41, averaged 161 yards and has a 3-5 TD-INT ratio. LSU ranks 26 in scoring defense.
Florida went to Death Valley played their best ball and still lost by two touchdowns.
I think LSU is the best team in the country and will add to their resume after this game.
Notre Dame @ Michigan +1
Michigan was one catch away from going into overtime on the road against Penn State after being down 21-0.
This Michigan offense has came around the last two weeks having over 400 yards in the last two. They have also had 18 sacks in their last four games and have a pass rush.
Notre Dame has played one quality defense this year against Georgia and scored 17 points.
If you take out Ohio State and Michigan State, Michigan is undefeated at home since Jim Harbaugh got there in 2015.
Washington State +14 @ Oregon & the over 65
Expect a ton of points in this game.
Washington State has scored more than 31 points six of their seven games and Oregon has scored 35 and 45 in the last two weeks.
Oregon had a hard fought win at Washington last week and should put up points with Washington State's defense having the 97th ranked rushing defense.
Texas -1 @ TCU
It is interesting how Texas and Michigan had the same hype and attention in the preseason with both teams now at two loses to teams in the top 15 and Texas has seemingly went unnoticed.
They struggled against Kansas striving by a game winning field goal and a game both TCU and Texas need.
It is not having the season they expected and are a one point favorite at home. I'll take Texas against a bad TCU offense.
Colorado +12 USC
USC is getting killed by injuries this year. So much in fact, they will likely play without their top three running backs and four of their key players on defense.
Also, it's a short week on the road. I'm riding with the Buffalos.
