2013 College Football Predictions: Week 10

You can't not like this
Remember when Miami-Florida State used to be the rivalry? When the Seminoles and the Hurricanes met either in Tallahassee or Little Havana, it was nothing but a heck of a show. As both programs have experience down years of sort lately, the rivalry has not been as hot as it used to be but it will be a top ten showdown Saturday night at Doak Campbell Stadium and a likely preview of the ACC Championship Game. Can FSU keep on making a run at the National Championship? Or will the U further solidify its comeback to the national stage by pulling off the upset? Here are my week ten picks.

Wednesday, October 30th
Cincinnati vs. Memphis - ESPN2, 8:00
Pick: Cincinnati

Thursday, October 31st
USF vs. Houston - ESPN, 7:00
Pick: Houston

Louisiana-Monroe vs. Troy - ESPNU, 7:30
Pick: Troy

Rice vs. North Texas - Fox Sports 1, 7:30
This is a very important C-USA matchup in the West, but I think Rice is the superior club.
Pick: Rice

#25 Arizona State vs. Washington State - ESPN, 10:30
Key football game in the Palouse for both, but I think the Sun Devils are strong enough defensively to slow down Mike Leach's attack just enough.
Pick: Arizona State

Friday, November 1st
USC vs. Oregon State - ESPN2, 9:00
The Trojans are not strong enough offensively to engage in a shootout with the Beavers.
Pick: Oregon State

Saturday, November 2nd
#22 Wisconsin vs. Iowa - ABC, 12:00
I'll be honest, the Hawkeyes have looked a lot better than I thought they would be. I just think Wisconsin is better, though.
Pick: Wisconsin

Illinois vs. Penn State - ESPN, 12:00
The Nittany Lions really got overmatched by Ohio State but considering Illinois isn't much better, I like them at home.
Pick: Penn State

Virginia Tech vs. Boston College - ESPN2, 12:00
Tech is coming off a disappointing loss to Duke but they should get it together against BC.
Pick: Virginia Tech

#4 Ohio State vs. Purdue - BTN, 12:00
Pick: Ohio State

Mississippi State vs. South Carolina - SEC TV, 12:00
Pick: South Carolina

Southern Miss vs. Marshall - CBS Sports Network, 12:00
Pick: Marshall

Army vs. Air Force - ESPNU, 12:00
The Falcons really are a mess so this is a great opportunity for Army here.
Pick: Army

#21 Northern Illinois vs. UMass - ESPN+, 12:00
Pick: Northern Illinois

Temple vs. Rutgers - AAC Network, 12:00
Pick: Rutgers

North Carolina vs. NC State - ACC Network, 12:30
Both of these clubs have really laid an egg this year. At least UNC is trending upward, somewhat.
Pick: North Carolina

Wake Forest vs. Syracuse - FSN, 12:30
The Demon Deacons had their chances to upset Miami but could not put it together. They'll get it done in the 'Cuse.
Pick: Wake Forest

Western Kentucky vs. Georgia State - Sun Belt Network, 1:00
Pick: Western Kentucky

Middle Tennessee vs. UAB - Fox Sports 1, 12:00
Pick: UAB

Florida vs. Georgia (Jacksonville) - CBS, 3:30
Both clubs have been relative disappointments

Navy vs. Notre Dame - NBC, 3:30
Pick: Notre Dame

#23 Michigan vs. #24 Michigan State - ABC, 3:30
This should be a good one in East Lansing. It's a good thing that the Spartans have the best defense in the county because neither offense is all that impressive, and that will give them the edge.
Pick: Michigan State

#9 Clemson vs. Virginia - ESPN, 3:30
Clemson is looking like they are pulling a classic fold job by them, but to lose to UVA would be a mess.
Pick: Clemson

Iowa State vs. Kansas State - Fox Sports 1, 3:30
The Cyclones are always bound to surprise us, and they'll march into Manhattan and pull off an upset.
Pick: Iowa State

Northwestern vs. Nebraska - BTN, 3:30
Nebraska really lied a big egg in Minneapolis this past week, losing a game solidly that they had no business doing so. However, Northwestern is still banged up so I like the Huskers at home.
Pick: Nebraska

Minnesota vs. Indiana - BTN, 3:30
The running game and the play-calling in general were stellar for the normally offensive-stagnant Golden Gophers, can they keep it up against a deadful Hoosier defense? I'm not so sure, and I think that Indiana will throw the ball around and then some.
Pick: Indiana

Arizona vs. Cal - Pac-12 Network, 3:30
Pick: Arizona

West Virginia vs. TCU - ESPNU, 3:30
Pick: TCU

UTSA vs. Tulsa - CSS, 3:30
Pick: Tulsa

Kent State vs. Akron - Time Warner Cable Sports Channel, 3:30
Pick: Kent State

Kansas vs. Texas - Longhorn Network/Jayhawk Sports Network, 3:30
Pick: Texas

Hawaii vs. Utah State - CBS Sports Network, 4:00
Pick: Utah State

San Jose State vs. UNLV - Mountain West Network, 4:00
Look out for those Rebels, they are legitimate.
Pick: UNLV

Texas State vs. Idaho - Altitude, 5:00
Moscow will be upset city this Saturday. Viva Vandals!
Pick: Idaho

#8 Auburn vs. Arkansas - ESPN2, 6:00
Pick: Auburn

Tennessee vs. #10 Missouri - ESPN, 7:00
It was not pretty this Saturday against South Carolina and Tennessee has done this before, I still think Missouri pulls it out.
Pick: Missouri

Oklahoma State vs. Texas Tech - Fox, 7:00
The Red Raiders could not get it done in Norman on Saturday and I am not sure if they can bounce back right away against the Cowboys.
Pick: Oklahoma State

Pittsburgh vs. Georgia Tech - ESPNU, 7:00
Pick: Georgia Tech

Eastern Michigan vs. Toledo - ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: Toledo

Alabama State vs. Kentucky - CSS, 7:30
Pick: Kentucky

Arkansas State vs. South Alabama - ESPN3, 7:30
Pick: Arkansas State

Boise State vs. Colorado State - CBS Sports Network, 8:00
Pick: Boise State

New Mexico vs. San Diego State - Root Sports, 8:00
Pick: San Diego State

#7 Miami (FL) vs. #3 Florida State - ABC, 8:00
The Hurricanes near fell to Wake in a classic trap game because they were clearly looking forward to this ballgame. And while I like this Miami team, I do not think they have the horses to come into Tally and pull off this one.
Pick: Florida State

UTEP vs. #12 Texas A&M - ESPN2, 9:00
Pick: Texas A&M

Nevada vs. Fresno State - ESPNU, 10:30
Pick: Fresno State
