Fearless Rick's 2012-13 College Football Week 11 - Early Games

Rick Gagliano | November 8-10

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 8

7:30 pm Florida State (-14, 51 1/2) at Virginia Tech - The level of ineptitude demonstrated by the Hokie offense has been overwhelming, forcing the defensive players into exhaustive stretches on the field. Florida State will no doubt exploit the overall weakness of Virginia Tech and cruise to an overwhelming victory.

The Seminoles enjoy advantages across the statistical spectrum, in addition to having superior players at almost every position.

Florida State has won four of the last six in this series, but is 0-3 ATS their last three road games. Still, they are miles ahead of V-Tach and should win handily.

Prediction: Seminoles 48 Hokies 13

Friday, November 9

8:00 pm Pittsburgh (-3 1/2, 43 1/2) at Connecticut - Pitt must avoid a letdown following their triple-OT loss at Notre Dame last week and focus on the task at hand, which would be to hand the Huskies their fifth straight loss.

That may not be such an easy task, as UConn, a miserable 1-5-3 ATS this season, has been playing excellent defense, outside of a Friday (10/19) debacle at Syracuse, which resulted n a 40-10 defeat.

While Pitt appears superior on the surface, the Panthers are 1-4 ATS their last five road games. Advantage Huskies.

Prediction: Huskies 20 Panthers 18

Saturday, November 10

12:00 pm Iowa State at Texas (10 1/2, 57) - The Longhorns are rolling into bowl season, having won their last three after being blasted by Oklahoma, though none of those three wins has come by more than nine points, which may be an issue against the 5-4 Cyclones, who seek a sixth win and possible bowl invite.

However, Iowa State has come up short every time this season they've been underdogs of nine or more points, making Texas the choice at home.

Prediction: Longhorns 34 Cyclones 17

12:00 pm Arkansas at South Carolina (-14, 54 1/2) - Walking wounded, the Gamecocks will be without star running back Marcus Lattimore, a condition that doomed the latter part of the 2011 season as well.

Arkansas, meanwhile, has been amidst a revival, winning three of their last four, including a 19-15 victory over a solid Tulsa team last week.

This one falls to the hands of the Gamecock defense, which should contain Arkansas and find scoring opportunities against a defense allowing nearly 30 points per game.

Prediction: Gamecocks 38 Razorbacks 17

12:00 pm Louisville (-3, 58) at Syracuse - The Cardinals are looking to go 10-0, and should find the Carrier Dome accommodating to their high-powered offense.

The SU defense has been giving up points in chunks of late, surrendering 36 and 35 in their last two outings, the last one a 35-24 loss at Cincinnati.

While the Cardinals have had some close calls, their 45-17 win over Temple last week was a definite confidence builder and they won't be derailed here.

Prediction: Cardinals 30 Orange 23

12:30 pm Georgia Tech at North Carolina (-9, 66) - Another under-the-radar big game in the ACC, possibly for the outright lead in the Coastal division for the Tar Heels and a share for Tech depending on the result of Miami's game at Virginia.

Left for dead after consecutive losses at Louisville and Wake Forest, the Tar Heels still may be the class of the division, at 6-3 and 3-2 in conference play.

North Carolina is clicking on offense, scoring 39.4 ppg, while Georgia Tech is allowing four TDs per outing, on average.

Prediction: Tar Heels 44 Yellow Jackets 27

3:00 pm Oregon State at Stanford (-5 1/2, 44 1/2) - Tough call here in a match-up of two solid PAC-12 teams, both in the hunt for bowl games.

The 7-2 Cardinal shows losses at Washington and Notre Dame, by four and seven points, respectively, while the Beavers lone defeat was also to the Huskies, 20-17, two weeks ago.

Stanford has won three of the last four in this annual series and should extend their good fortune at home, where they have not lost this season.

Prediction: Cardinal 27 Beavers 14

3:00 pm Arizona State at USC (-9, 65) - Taking their third loss of the season last week thanks to Oregon in a 62-51 defeat, the Trojans will have to rebound quickly though staying on home turf is surely helpful.

The Sun Devils are reeling with three straight losses, though they've come against the class of the PAC-12, Oregon, UCLA and Oregon State and the line is overly generous to the underdog here.

USC is just 2-5 ATS in their last seven against Arizona State, a trend that will remain in place after a close call or possible upset in Southern Cal.

Prediction: Sun Devils 34 Trojans 31
