Fearless Rick's 2014-15 College Football Week 10 - Early Games

Rick Gagliano | October 30 - November 1

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, October 30

7:30 pm Florida State (-4, 50 1/2) at Louisville - Some wise guys think that 5-2 Louisville, following their 30-18 victory over NC State and extra time off, might catch the Seminoles by surprise.

They could be right. The Cardinals' defense is the fourth-best in the country, allowing just 14.6 points per game and are particularly adept at taking away the running game (70.6 yards allowed per game).

Louisville gets home field advantage, big time exposure and a shot at knocking off a vulnerable Florida State squad.

Prediction: Cardinals 26 Seminoles 24

7:30 pm Troy at Georgia Southern (-25 1/2, 63) - Seriously, the Sun Belt? Troy is 1-7; Georgia Southern is 6-2, with a 5-0 mark in the conference. Maybe if the line was something more like -35, taking Troy might be enticing, but, even then, a huge risk.

The Eagles have, on their resume this season, an 83-9 win over Savannah State, so...

Prediction: Eagles 49 Trojans 17

Saturday, November 1

12:00 pm Duke at Pittsburgh (-4, 51) - 6-1 Duke has already qualified for bowl season with back-to-back wins over Georgia Tech and Virginia, but now faces a Pitt team still in contention (2-2) for the Coastal division, despite having lost four of its last five.

Pitt was last seen being routed by Georgia Tech, 56-28, last weekend, but memories are short in the ACC and the Panthers should rebound.

Prediction: Panthers 23 Blue Devils 21

12:30 pm North Carolina at Miami (FL) (-17, 70) - Both teams are 2-2 in the ACC and vie for position in the Coastal division.

North Carolina is coming off two straight wins, over Georgia Tech and Virginia, but the Tar Heels remain on the road, and are massive underdogs in South Florida.

The Hurricanes are 4-0 at home this season and are beginning to dominate opponents, as they did last Thursday, dismantling Virginia Tech, 30-6 and should run roughshod over the Tar Heel defense.

Prediction: Hurricanes 48 Tar Heels 24

3:30 TCU (-5, 73) at West Virginia - It would not be a shock to anyone should these two Big 12 squads account for 90 or more points in this important conference game.

TCU leads the nation in scoring with 50.4 ppg on average, while the Mountaineers are certainly no slouches themselves, putting up 36.9 (22nd). Defenses will be worn down, but TCU has something special going on and can prevail late.

Prediction: Horned Frogs 54 Mountaineers 38

3:30 pm Virginia at Georgia Tech (-3 1/2, 54 1/2) - 4-4 Virginia has lost its last two, but the games were close, losing at Duke, 20-13 and last week being beaten at home by North Carolina, 28-27. They play everyone close, and the Cavalier defense is anything but.

Georgia Tech got back on track last week with a 56-28 win at Pitt, after losing to the same two teams - Duke and North Carolina - as Virginia, so this one has the making of a close call. In a possible OT situation, Virginia pulls out a much-needed win.

Prediction: Cavaliers 27 Yellow Jackets 24

3:30 pm Florida vs. Georgia (-13, 51 1/2) - The annual meeting in Jacksonville should bring out the best from both teams, but Georgia, at 6-1, is quietly still in the running for a spot in the national championship final four.

Florida is just 3-3 and has trouble maintaining offense, which is a problem against the Bulldogs, who average 43.4 points per outing, ninth-best in the country.

Prediction: Bulldogs 37 Gators 14
