All hours of the East
No. 4 Penn State (-6.5) to No. 17 Minnesota – Noon on ABC: I do not want to take anything away from what Minnesota has achieved in 2019. It's a booming program, and P.J. Fleck has worked wonders. Minnesota is heading in the right direction, but I think his skis are a little behind now. The Gophers took advantage of the breaks that occurred. Their non-conference time was not a problem for them, but they struggled to escape unscathed. The five wins were won by the Big Ten teams against teams that either started a quarterback or had to turn to one for the majority of the game due to injury. Only one of their wins in Big Ten – Illinois – was opposed to a team that currently has a winning record. Penn State is a much better team than anything Minnesota has experienced this season, and it's also a team used to playing in this kind of games. I think the talent and experience will be enough for Penn State here. That will not destroy Minnesota, but it will cover that gap. Choice: Penn State -6.5 – Tom Fornelli
LSU # 2 at Alabama # 3 (-6.5) – 3.30pm on CBS: LSU's defense is a little mysterious this season and she will come back to bite the Tigers. They are tied for seventh place in the SEC when it comes to passing 20 yards or more with 23 yards. It will be a Saturday afternoon killer attack on Crimson Tide's pass that made his life with big games. The Auburn defense was successful against the LSU offensive line two weeks ago and gave Nick Saban a detailed plan on how to attack Joe Burrow and the attack. I'm going to put my money on Saban's combination and time to find a way to win, but I think the Tigers' offense will have enough success to stay close to the fourth quarter. Choose: LSU (+6.5) – Barrett Sallee

# 18 Iowa to # 13 Wisconsin (-8.5) – 4pm. on FOX: This gives the impression that it will be a defensive slugfest at the old school between two teams with traditionally strong defenses and crazy mistakes. Because of this, I will stay simple and be on the side of the team with the best player on the field. Jonathan Taylor is one of the best college football players since he entered the field two seasons ago, and he expanded his receiver role out of the field during his junior season. The week off will allow Badgers staff to press the reset button; they'll be creative with Taylor and win a big win at home – but not a blanket – to keep up the pace in the Big Ten West. Choose: Iowa (+8.5) – Barrett Sallee
Missouri to No. 6 Georgia (-16.5) – 19.00 on ESPN: I think Georgia is one of the best teams in the country, but the boa constrictor method of relying on teams and controlling them in the trenches is not a style designed for eruptions. When you take into account a slight disappointment after the Florida win, I think Missouri will be able to save time with a win at a Georgia score. Choose: Missouri (+14.5) – Chip Patterson
State of Iowa Oklahoma No. 9 (-13.5) – 8pm on FOX: The Iowa State is probably a little better than 5-3 would tell you, and they have the tools to defeat Oklahoma, including a legitimate double-threat quarterback in Purdy Brock and a well-trained defense. It's a battle of two of the Big 12's best teams, although a rematch in Arlington, Texas, will probably only happen if Iowa State wins in Norman, Oklahoma. I like that the Sooners have a loss and a week more to think about it, but if you can get two touchdowns in this game, take the points. Choose: Iowa State +13.5 – Ben Kercheval
