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

Rick Gagliano | November 8-10

All times Eastern - Click here for early games.

3:30 pm West Virginia at Oklahoma State (-8, 79) - Don't blink on this one, because you're likely to miss a score as two of the most potent offenses in the country (in addition to having little to no defensive acumen) take the field for a Big 12 shoot-out.

While the pace of this game will be frenetic, look for the Cowboys to make plays on defense late in the game, becoming bowl eligible with their sixth win against three losses, while handing the Mountaineers their fourth consecutive defeat.

Prediction: Cowboys 56 Mountaineers 38

3:30 pm Penn State at Nebraska (7 1/2, 54) - The Cornhuskers were indeed fortunate to win over Michigan State in OT last week, 28-24, and they return home for a tough task against the visiting, 6-3, Nittany Lions, coming off a smashing victory at Purdue, 34-9.

The Penn State program is ineligible for post-season play due to sanctions, but the players have responded admirably in the midst of a horrible situation.

Nebraska may come away with a win and remain tied for the lead with Michigan in the Legends division, but it may be a bit scary.

Prediction: Cornhuskers 24 Nittany Lions 23

3:30 pm Texas A&M at Alabama (13 1/2, 56) - The Crimson Tide gutted out a 21-17 win at LSU after trailing almost the entire game, and must regroup quickly to host a tough A&M team that has done well in their initial season in the SEC with a 42 conference record and 7-2 line overall.

The Aggies have been dominance of late, winning their last two games on the road convincingly, 63-21, over Auburn and 38-13, at Ole Miss last week.

Alabama better be ready or an upset is in the making. In any case, the Aggies will come through with another excellent showing on the road and cover the generous line.

Prediction: Crimson Tide 31 Aggies 24

7:00 pm Georgia (-15 1/2, 53) at Auburn - There's no stopping Georgia in their relentless march to a berth in the SEC championship game and possible shot at a national title.

There's still plenty of football to be played this season, but the schedule is favorable for the Bulldogs, who close out their SEC commitment here before facing pushover Georgia Southern next week and Georgia Tech on November 24.

Auburn is 0-6 in conference play and they aren't going to come close to winning here. Could be the rout of the week.

Prediction: Bulldogs 48 Tigers 10

7:00 pm Kansas State (-7, 57) at TCU - UPDATE: Pivotal game for both teams, line set at a TD as K-state QB Colin Klein will start after missing most of the second half of last week's win over Oklahoma State with an apparent hand injury.

The Wildcats have been rolling, but TCU plays everybody tough, and close, and they're getting points at home. Looks like a thriller theat K-State wins on a late score.

Prediction: Kansas State 31 TCU 27

7:00 pm Mississippi State at LSU (-14, 44 1/2) - Coming off a tough loss at home to Alabama, LSU will need to shrug off the after-effects of falling off the national championship radar, though there's still a lot of football ahead for the Tigers.

The Bulldogs are reeling, however, losing their last two straight, dropping a 38-13 decision to Texas A&M last week after a 38-7 bombing at Alabama the week before.

The Tigers may get off to a slow start, but their defense will limit Bulldog scoring opportunities and run away late.

Prediction: Tigers 35 Bulldogs 13

8:00 pm Notre Dame (-19, 48) at Boston College - Definite trap game for the Fighting Irish after remaining unbeaten with a triple-overtime win at home against the Pitt Panthers last week.

BC always gets up for this game, but the Eagles are a woeful bunch this season, checking in here with a 2-7 record and being on national TV in prime time isn't going to help much.

Even marginal teams are beating Boston College by bunches this season, but they're better at home, a place they've been only once in the past five weeks. That should be the tonic to keep this one from becoming too much of a laugher.

Prediction: Fighting Irish 37 Eagles 23

10:30 pm Oregon (-28, 67 1/2) at California - East coasters may find game this the perfect sleep aid, as the Ducks' blindingly-fast offense should make quick work of the Golden Bears.

9-0 Oregon has covered their last four straight, while 3-6 Cal hasn't come close to beating the spread in their last three, all losses.

West coast fans may sleep well and early on this one as well.

Prediction: Ducks 62 Golden Bears 28
