After a few weeks of neglecting this (thank you, Rangers playoff run), it’s time to jump back on the horse. Here are this weekend’s games.
TCU @ Wyoming (1pm CT, Televised on The Mountain)
The Frogs and Cowboys are both undefeated in conference play, with TCU beating Air Force, San Diego State and New Mexico, while Wyoming has beaten San Diego State and UNLV.
It’s supposed to be snowing in Laramie this weekend, which should actually play right into the Frogs hands. TCU’s running game is getting stronger by the week, averaging 207 yards/game. Meanwhile Wyoming’s run defense is shaky at best, allowing 209 yards/game.
Meanwhile, Wyoming’s pass offense should be slowed by the wind and snow, which can help hide TCU’s deficiencies in the secondary.
Prediction: TCU-38, Wyoming-13.
SMU @ Tulane (2pm CT, not televised, listen on AM 1310 The Ticket)
Since defeating the Frogs, SMU has gone 1-2, losing their last two games by a combined 65-10. However, they should turn it around this week against a Tulane team that is currently on a six game slide.
Neither team runs the ball very well, but SMU easily outshines the Green Wave in the passing game, and they should have no trouble getting the ball in the endzone this weekend.
Prediction: SMU-27, Tulane-17
North Texas (BYE)
Other Games to Watch:
#24 West Virginia vs. Louisville (11am CT, Streaming on ESPN 3) Prediction WVU-35, Louisville-31
#6 Oklahoma vs. Texas A&M (2:30pm CT, Televised on ABC) Prediction: Oklahoma-51, A&M-35
#7 Arkansas vs. #9 South Carolina (6:15 CT, Televised on ESPN) Prediction: Arkansas-31, South Carolina-24
#3 Oklahoma State vs. #14 Kansas State (7pm CT, Televised on ABC) Prediction: Oklahoma State-45, Kansas State-21
Game of the Week:
#2 Alabama vs. #1 LSU (7pm CT, Televised on CBS)
This game is going to be a hit you in the mouth battle by two extremely talented SEC teams. However, I think Alabama is slightly better, and will take this game at home.
Prediction: Alabama-20, LSU-14
