D2B’s Week 11 College Football Pix

I just keep on rolling after going 4-1 last week and over the last 4 weeks I’m 15-4-2. If I keep this up you can start calling an 800 number to get the pix because I’m on fire. Anyway, here we go with a great weekend of college football.

Cincinnati -9.5 v West Virginia

Zach Collaros is starting once again for the Bearcats at quarterback while giving Tony Pike more time to heal up and get ready for Illinois on the 27th. If this was a game that Cincy felt that would be a tester Pike would be under center. We don’t have to keep hyping the Cincy offensive stats after 711 yards last week alone. West Va is coming off a squeaker against lowly Louisville and before that was demolished by a South Florida team who was crushed by Rutgers yesterday. West Va has played one good team this year in Auburn and lost and now they will play Cincy and Pitt in consecutive weeks on the road. When you can get Cincy at home in a single digit spread and a national TV audience to show they belong jump all over them.

I am betting Cincinnati Bearcats at home to cover -9.5

Pitt-7 v Notre Dame

This is the Alamo for Charlie Weis. Win and you get to coach another day, but lose and you are pretty much done. Personally I see ND losing 2 out of their last 3 games to Pitt and Stanford plus the home game against UConn is a tough one. Pitt is under
the radar and have parlayed their great season into a #8 ranking and are on the verge of going to a big time bowl game. The Pitt D is only givig up 200 yds a game passing and with an anemic ND rushing scheme I dont see how Claussen can have the game
needed to beat one of the hottest teams in college on the road.

I am betting Pitt at home to cover -7

NC State +9.5 v Clemson

Clemson is playing their best football of the year and have won 4 straight including at Miami. They roll into Raleigh this weekend and it’s a game I will be attending with the eye of the Tiger. Clemson is atop the Atlantic Division of the ACC over BC who they have already beat this year. Clemson is looking for a chance to face Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship. Clemson lost to the Rambling Wreck back in September by only three points so it would be an interesting Championship game should it occur. NC State after hitting the skids with 4 straight losses came home and beat a bad Maryland team last week while giving up 31 to the Terps. Clemson although playing well has that day where they play down to the opponents level. NC State has the offense to overcome any team, but they will have to stop a hot CJ Spiller to make it close.

I am Betting NC State at home to cover +9.5


TCU -20 v Utah

I know I have been touting TCU for the National Championship all year and now that everyone knows they are legit it is time for them to finally have that game where they squeak by someone. Utah who is 8-1 this year after a 13-0 year last year comes in with only a loss at Oregon back in September. Da Utes handled the trap game last week crushing New Mex as did TCU by blowing out San Diego State. Don’t think for a second Utah gives up before taking the field like all the other Mtn West has against TCU. Utah is good and they too have been flying low and can elevate their BCS hopes with a big win at TCU. I don’t know if they have all the players to match TCU, but this game will not be another TCU blow out.

I am betting Utah on the road to cover +20
