College football preview - week nine

Missouri at Colorado. Line: MU by 5.5. Missouri gets a bit of a reprieve this week after the past two weeks against Oklahoma State and Texas. Colorado remains in disarray with Cody Hawkins reinserted last week at QB after a bad outing by Tyler Hansen. Will Blaine Gabbert play? It won't matter--MU by a touchdown.

Kansas State at Oklahoma. Line: OU by 28. The Wabash Cannonball begins taking on water this week. KSU must travel to Norman where they will lose to Oklahoma by 24.

Kansas at Texas Tech. Line: TT by 6.5. What to make of this game? Taylor Potts has been benched as Tech's QB and Mike Leech is grousing about his team's "fat girlfriends." KU leader Todd Reesing is in a turnover funk. This isn't the week the Jayhawks need to regain confidence--another tough game and a close loss...Tech by 3.

Nebraska at Baylor. Line: NU by 13. Ordinarily, a trip to Waco would be just the recipe for a struggling Nebraska team. But, this is no ordinary year in the Big 12. Nebraska will win--barely. Prediction: Huskers by a touchdown.

Texas at Oklahoma State. Line: UT by 9. Texas will continue to roll this week against an OSU team which officially lost Dez Bryant for the rest of the season. Longhorns by 14.

Iowa State at Texas A&M. Line: TAM by 7. This game will showcase two teams which netted big wins last week--ISU at Lincoln and A&M over Tech. Let's go with home advantage at Kyle Field and say the Aggies win by 10.

Florida vs. Georgia. Line: Florida by 15.5. The adult beverages will flow this weekend at the "world's largest outdoor cocktail party." Gators by 17.

Southern Miss at Houston. Line: Houston by 6.5. I like Houston in this one, by 10.

Mississippi at Auburn. Line: Mississippi by 3.5. Auburn needs a win badly...they won't get it this week. Ole Miss by 7.

USC at Oregon. Line: USC by 3. Weird things happen in the state of Oregon for USC. I'm going with the Ducks here, winning by 4 over the Men of Troy.
