Pick: TCU…Nobody has fully bought in on OSU all season, and you may see why this week.
Pick: Memphis…Memphis is just too much fire, and the Middies cannot keep up the offensive tempo.
Pick: Clemson…They just have more overall talent right now, but the defense has to be A game quality.
Pick: Alabama…the Tide defense may be key in this one, and Alabama is just more desperate in this situation.
Pick: North Carolina…Duke’s defense may be the best that UNC has played this season, but UNC has more firepower.
Pick: Jacksonville State…The Gamecocks have been on fire this season, and EIU may be in over their heads even at home this week.
PRS #21 Sam Houston State at PRS #4 McNeese State
SHSU stumbled out of the blocks this season, but once Southland Conference play began, KC Keeler’s club found their groove, and they have been cruising ever since. McNeese State was scheduled to play LSU this season, and when that game got cancelled, it allowed the Cowboys to plow through their schedule unbeaten up to this point. McNeese State only needs this win, and they can claim the SLC title and an FCS playoff birth. Lose, and they are in a virtual tie with the Bearkats.
Pick: McNeese State…The Cowboys are in a perfect situation to lock up a conference title and start planning for the postseason. This is too good to let get by.
Pick: Illinois State…The Red Birds have a lot to play for on the road, but the theme this week is winning on the road in FCS football, and ISU is not immune to that need.
Pick: South Carolina State…the Bulldogs are tough at home, and their defense could save the day in this upset pick.
Pick: Eastern Washington…it won’t be a runaway win, but EWU should survive the test to stay unbeaten in Big Sky play.
Pick: Alcorn State…the Braves are in a stronger position, and could lock up the east with a win.
Pick: UT-Martin…Upset pick is in, as EKU is coming off a horrific loss to Jacksonville State last week, but again, UTM has to win on the road to stay in the hunt.
