Oklahoma at Oklahoma State [Matt Daddy]:

Oklahoma St finds itself in the different position this year of having the inside track to the Big 12 Championship game with rival Oklahoma coming to town.  These are the two best offenses in the Big 12, but Oklahoma's defense is quite a bit better than Ok State. I expect Ok State to try and control the clock and rush the ball and rely on their home crowd to help get them the victory.  I'm taking Ok State in a close one.

 

Florida at Florida State [Paul]:

I had a hard time calling this one. Both teams have finished their respective conference slates and are playing for the pride of the Sunshine State. On one hand, you have a "struggling" 7-4 Florida team is still reeling from a tough loss to South Carolina two weeks ago at the Swamp. On the other hand, you have a 8-3 Florida State team that sits atop the ACC Atlantic division and will wait to see if Maryland can upset NC State and send the Seminoles to the ACC title game to face Virginia Tech. Although I generally lean toward the home team in rivalry games, I can't seem to bring myself to pick an ACC team over an SEC team given how mediocre the ACC is as a conference this year. So, I'm taking Florida on the road, but this one is definitely a toss-up.

Oregon State at Stanford (-14.5) [Takimoto]:

Andrew Luck is effing ridiculous.  I mean, did you see him last week?  I was there, it was silly.  And now he gets to face a much weaker defense in his house?  Please.  OSU's win last week shouldn't scare anyone, it just speaks to the parity within the teams in the Pac-10 not named Stanford or Oregon.  The Cardinal win this one by a bunch.
