College Football Duo of Action: Oklahoma State at #6 Oklahoma & #10 Washington State at Colorado
As we head into the final few weeks of the college football regular season, the battle for the top 4 spots remains as tight as ever. It’s tough to imagine either Alabama or Clemson missing out at this point, but there is always the possibility of an upset that could completely change the face of the entire playoff race.
There are a handful of teams waiting in the wings for such an upset to happen, and we are going to take a look at two of them here. The Oklahoma Sooners have a big rivalry game ahead of them this weekend, while the Washington State Cougars have a very tricky road trip coming up this Saturday.
Let’s take a closer look at those two games with our College Football Duo of Action.
Oklahoma State Cowboys at #6 Oklahoma Sooners
It’s probably fair to suggest that this has been a down year for the Cowboys, but they have already proven that you ignore them at your own peril. After all, it was this very Cowboys team that stunned Texas a couple of weeks ago, killing the Longhorns dream of a playoff spot. They are a huge 20 ½ point underdog for this one, but they have covered in the 2 previous games they started this season as an underdog.
The Sooners saw their playoff hopes take a hot with a 48-45 loss to Texas a few weeks back, but they have responded brilliantly since then. In the 3 games played since that defeat, Oklahoma have gone 3-0 SU and posted an average of 51 PPG in those 3 wins. If there is one area for concern, it has to be on the defensive side of the football, with the D giving up 46 points to Texas Tech last week. They are going to face another good offense this week, so they are going to need to tighten up to get the win.
I think we can safely say that we are going to get some scoring here. While I like Oklahoma to win this one, I am not sold on that point spread.
Predicted Score: Oklahoma State Cowboys 26 | Oklahoma Sooners 43
#8 Washington State Cougars at Colorado Buffaloes
The Washington State Cougars continue to hang around in the playoff race and have now reeled off 5 straight wins after taking their lone loss of the season on the road to USC. They are coming off perhaps their least impressive performance in that stretch, a 19-13 win over Cal that brought their 7-game cover streak to an end. They are in as a 6 ½ point road favorite here and have covered the spread in each of their last 5 road games.
After a solid start to the season, the Colorado Buffaloes have gone in the tank in a big way, losing each of their last 4 games and giving up a lot of points in the process. They have only managed to cover the spread once during that losing run, which is disappointing when you consider that they covered in each of their first 4 games this season. They are now just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
I like the Cougars to keep the good times rolling with another win here, and I think they will cover the spread by the barest of margins.
Predicted Score: Washington State Cougars 35 | Colorado Buffaloes 27
