Fearless Rick's 2012-13 College Football Week 10 - Early Games

Rick Gagliano | November 1-3, 2012

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 1

7:30 pm Virginia Tech (-2, 57) at Miami (FL) - Both teams are 4-4, but with only two losses in the ACC Coastal division. Miami is tied with Duke and North Carolina for the division lead, at 3-2 in conference play, while the Hokies are 1/2-game back at 2-2.

Virginia Tech has been a massive disappointment, especially on the road where they are 1-4 their last five road games. Miami is coming off three straight losses, though their 18-14 and 33-20 losses to UNC and Florida State, respectively, were pretty good efforts.

This is Miami's third straight home game and getting points at home might just be the charm.

Prediction: Hurricanes 30 Hokies 23

Friday, November 2

9:00 pm Washington at California (-4, 52 1/2) - Washington has won the last three straight in this series, and, at 4-4, is moving in the right direction, especially after upsetting Oregon State, 20-17, last Saturday.

3-6 Cal has had issues on defense, especially telling in last week's 49-27 loss at Utah, in which they gave up 441 yards and were -2 in turnovers.

Despite being on the road, the Husky defense should come to the fore, having seen film of how Stanford shut down the Bears, 21-3, two weeks ago.

Prediction: Huskies 24 Golden Bears 21

Saturday, November 3

12:00 pm Texas A&M (-6 1/2, 59) at Mississippi State - Both teams are bowl-bund already as the Aggies are 6-2, while the Bulldogs own an impressive 7-1 record, despite last week's, 38-7, loss at Alabama.

Both teams are chasing the Crimson Tide in the SEC West, but probably won't catch Alabama for a chance to play in the conference championship.

A&M owns nearly all the statistical edges and has arguably played better teams, thus the near-TD road favoritism, which is well-deserved.

Prediction: Aggies 38 Bulldogs 24

12:00 pm Missouri at Florida (-16 1/2, 42) - If there's any reason to take Missouri here, it could be because the Gators have proven themselves mortal, dropping a 17-9 decision to Georgia last week.

Also, the Tigers picked up their first SEC win, topping Kentucky, 33-10, and that should prove positive for Mizzou.

Both Missouri and Florida have aggressive defenses, so a low-scoing affair should be the order of the day, and with low scores, a point spread of more than two TDs is not an easy cover. Look for Missouri to keep this one close enough to handle the spread.

Prediction: Gators 20 Tigers 13

12:00 pm Temple at Louisville (-14 1/2, 51 1/2) - The Owls have had a rough time adjusting to Big East opponents, winning two and losing two, with a 3-4 record overall, losing its last two to Rutgers, 35-10, and last week, at Pitt, 47-17. The defense has all but quit, especially in the secondary, allowing 246.6 yards per contest.

Louisville needed overtime to get past a very game Bearcats quad last week and squeaked by South Florida the prior week, 27-25, but have had an additional day to prepare and are home for the third straight week. They need a win to keep pace with Rutgers, 4-0 in the Big East, while the Cardinals are 3-0 and 8-0 overall.

Should be somewhat of a blowout. Temple can't hang with Louisville, which is sniffing a BCS bowl bid.

Prediction: Cardinals 44 Owls 20

3:00 pm TCU at West Virginia (-7, 68) - The Mountaineers have suffered some setbacks recently in their inaugural season in the Big 12, notably, their last two losses, 55-14 to Kansas State, on the 20th, and a 49-14 embarrassment at Texas Tech on the 13th of October.

They've had an extra week to think things over, but it probably won't matter, because the WVA defense can't seem to stop anyone, allowing an incredible 39.9 ppg.

Take the Horned Frogs with the generous line, in a game between two teams that have temporarily lost their way, though the damage to the Mountaineer defense seems more severe.

Prediction: Horned Frogs 48 Mountaineers 34
