Week 11 College FB Preview: Oklahoma State Over Kansas

A look at the biggest games in Week 11 of the college football season...


Illinois at Ohio State

Ron Zook was able to keep it close with the Buckeyes last year in Champaign—but although he has a better team this year, Ohio State won't overlook the Illini again.

OSU is a very good team relative to the rest of the Big Ten, and will win this game to set up a showdown with Michigan for the conference title.

My Pick: Ohio State


Kansas at Oklahoma State

Is the Big XII the second best conference in the country—or are there just four good teams and eight horrible ones?

I think it's the latter.

The Jayhawks have all the pressure on their shoulders and no experience to carry it. If there's going to be an upset this weekend, this is it.

My Pick: Oklahoma State


Auburn at Georgia

The road team usually wins this game, and Georgia hasn't defeated Florida and Auburn together in the same season in some time.

Georgia nearly suffered a letdown against Troy last weekend by looking ahead to this game, so expect them to come out focused.

Unfortunately for the Dawgs, Mark Richt claims he won't let his players storm the field in celebration anymore, so I don't see how they'll be fired up enough to win...

My Pick: Auburn


Florida State at Virginia Tech

Oh how the mighty have fallen.

FSU scores 20 offensive points against Boston College and all of a sudden their offense is back? I'm not buying it. Not yet, at least.

The Hokies have won every game they were supposed to win. Look for more of the same in this one.

My Pick: Virgina Tech


Florida at South Carolina

Despite Florida's win in last year's showdown with the Cocks, Steve Spurrier still holds the mental edge over Urban Meyer.

UF's defense may have found its identity last week when Mike Pouncey was moved from OL to DT. He brings energy to the young defense (he's a freshman), and will carry this Gators team to a big win in Columbia.

My Pick: Florida


Texas Tech at Texas: Texas

USC at Cal: Cal

Arkansas at Tennessee: Arkansas

Michigan at Wisconsin: Michigan
