College Football Game Day Predictions
Week 8 2012
HI All and Happy Weekend!!!! Let's start with Bill from Bill's Big 10 Corner and see what he's saying about this week's
Big 10 games...
Purdue at Ohio State (-19) – Let’s go with Ohio St to cover as Purdue struggles to win their first Big 10 game.
Minnesota at Wisconsin (-18) – Minnesota to keep things close on the road.
Penn St at Iowa (-3) – Penn St to cover. One team to lose their first Big 10 game.
Michigan St at Michigan (-10) – Michigan to cover at home and remain undefeated in the Big 10.
Nebraska (-5) at Northwestern – I think NW can keep this close at home so I will take the 5 points.
Looking ahead next week ………… Michigan at Nebraska
Now let's go south a bit and see what
Bevo jr. has to to say about the TEXAS game this weekend....
Even though Baylor comes to Austin on Saturday, at this stage it’s hard to predict, and harder to get fired up! Texas 24 – Baylor 17. C’mon,HOOK ‘EM HORNS!
Okay, Red 5 Standing By of the UTAH Utes checked in with his thoughts on the Utah game with Oregon State.....
Turnkey Tim with IOWA is writing his prediction now. I will post his prediction of the game with Penn State as soon as I decipher his handwriting :):):)
Iowa will have to stick with the ground game to open up the play action pass. Without Mark Weisman, this will be tough. I feel if we have any success early offensively, look for Offensive Coordinator Greg Davis to dial up a few wrinkles that we have not seen yet. Offensively for Penn State, they will have their strongest test yet against Iowa's defense. They play a more traditional style offense, like Iowa, and will have to pass to win the game asIi see the Iowa defense not giving a lot of running room. I look for Iowa to bring more pressure up front this week as well, even some corner blitzes.
On a side note, turnovers and penalties will be key in this game. Iowa must play a clean game. At the end of the day I will pick the Hawks at home. Let's see if Vegas is right as they pick the Hawks to win. Turnkey Tim's pick Iowa 23 - Penn State 20.
