#12 Oklahoma (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) -9 vs Texas (3-2, 2-0 Big 12)
A top five rivalry may finally be back on track. Oklahoma is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Iowa State, losing a 24-10 lead in the process. Texas, led by new coach Tom Harmon have been a dangerous team all year taking, then top-5 team, USC to the limit. In a rivalry game, always take the points.

Toledo (4-1, 1-0 MAC) -7.5 at Central Michigan (3-3, 1-1 MAC)
Toledo is coming in off a disappointing win against Eastern Michigan, a game where they were two touchdown favorites, and they’re looking to assert that they ARE the best team in the MAC against a Central Michigan team that people can’t seem to identify. Are the Chips good? Are the Chips bad? Should we try some guac on the Chips to make them better?

Akron (3-3, 2-0 MAC) +14 at Western Michigan (4-2, 2-0 MAC)
It took seven overtimes but the Broncos were able to remain undefeated in the MAC last week against Buffalo. The three headed monster at running back for Western look to roll over a Zips team that has been good against bad teams, but awful against even mediocre teams.

#21 Michigan State (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) -4 at Minnesota (3-2, 0-2 Big Ten)
The Spartans will be on a huge momentum wave as they travel to the land of 10,000 lakes to take on PJ Fleck’s Gopher team. MSU has shown that they have grown from last season’s 3-9 record, and have even grown from the bad team they were against Notre Dame a couple weeks ago. Fleck is still looking for his first Big Ten win, after going undefeated against a weak out of conference schedule.

#17 Michigan (4-1, 1-1 Big Ten) -8 at Indiana (3-2, 0-2 Big Ten)
Hello misplaced aggression. The Hoosiers are in a bad spot as Michigan is coming off an upset loss to rival Michigan State, and are looking for a punching bag to take it out on before traveling to a white out at Penn State next weekend. The offensive line needs to play better, and give O’Korn more time to make better decisions than he made last week.

Green Bay (4-1) -3 at Vikings (3-2)
Hey! The Packers are STILL really good. They lose their running back, don’t worry they have another one. Randall Cobb has taken a step back? Oh look! It’s Davante Adams! Green Bay is down to the Cowboys, with only a minute left? That’s right, Aaron Rodgers still plays football. Never count this Packer team out.

Detroit (3-2) +4.5 at New Orleans (2-2)
While we have been talking about how improved this Lions team is, don’t sleep on the Saints. They’ve won two in a row, including shutting out Miami in London. The Lions, who have won four in a row against the Saints, look to bounce back after a close loss the Panthers last week.
