UCF vs. East Carolina - ESPN, 7:30
The Pirates can score at will while the Knights are very stout defensively in keeping points off the board. I just do not think that UCF have the weapons offensively to keep up in Greenville.
Pick: East Carolina
Friday, December 5th
This is a rematch of last year's MAC Championship in which Bowling Green pulled the big upset in impressive fashion. I don't think that will happen as I do not like how the Falcons have finished their regular season with two straight losses.
Pick: Northern Illinois
This will certainly be a fun one as we could have these two combine for over 100 points. Arizona did pull the upset at Autzen two months ago, can they do it again? I don't see it but this should be a great one.

Marshall lost a stunner to Western Kentucky but this Louisiana Tech squad does not have the kind of passing game you need to keep up with Rakeem Cato like the Hilltoppers did.
SMU vs. Connecticut - CBS Sports Network, 12:00
Iowa State vs. TCU - ABC, 12:00
Houston vs. Cincinnati - ESPN, 12:00
Both teams have had nice seasons this year in the American but I think with how good the Bearcats have looked in their six game winning streak, they'll pull this out at home.
Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma - Fox Sports 1, 3:30
The Cowboys need to pull a Bedlam upset to get to a bowl game but it just will not happen.
Insert your 'Mizzou gets no respect' card right here. Can they get the ultimate respect by knocking off the top-ranked Tide? I don't see it as their offense simply has not been consistent enough to beat back the Alabama defense.
Temple vs. Tulane - ESPN2, 7:30
Kansas State vs. Baylor - ESPN, 7:45
If this game was in Manhattan, I may go with the Wildcats. But in Waco with the loaded offense that the Bears have, I just think that it will be tough for Kansas State to pull the upset.
This is a very tough game now with Ohio State losing the sensation that was JT Barrett as they will now start their third string QB, Cardale Jones. Jones showed some promise against Michigan in relief but can he push the action against a quality Wisconsin defense? I'm not sold and thus, I like Wisconsin.
Everybody has been playing with FSU as they just can't seem to put anybody away. Georgia Tech is good enough to make the Seminoles sweat another one out but I believe Jameis Winston will do what he has done all season long to get the win.
Pick: Florida State
The Broncos look poised to get to a Selection Committee game if they win here and I think they will hold off a Bulldog club that really is not that good.
Pick: Boise State
