Fearless Rick's 2014-15 College Football Week 14 - Early Games

Rick Gagliano | November 28-30

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 27

7:30 pm TCU (-6 1/2, 56 1/2) at Texas - Should be a fun one to start off the holiday football feast. The Longhorns have rebounded from a 2-4 start to win four of their last five and three in a row.

The Texas defense has allowed just 36 points in its last three games - all wins - and hosts a top ten TCU team with only one loss - to Baylor - on its resume. TCU has the nation's 2nd-most potent offense, scoring 45.9 points per game, but the Longhorns come ready to rock and should pull off the surprise upset.

Prediction: Longhorns 34 Horned Frogs 30


7:30 pm LSU (-3, 51) at Texas A&M - Both teams are 3-4 in the SEC and 7-4 overall, so this game is for nothing more than bowl positioning and closing out the conference schedule.

LSU has the fifth-ranked defense, allowing 16.4 ppg, while the Aggies score 36.0 ppg, 23rd nationally. Have to give the home-standing Aggies the edge here, as LSU won't be able to come back if behind late.

Prediction: Aggies 27 Tigers 23


Friday, November 28

2:30 pm Arkansas (-1 1/2, 48 1/2) at Missouri - No team is playing better defense than the Razorbacks, shutting out LSU, 17-0, prior to hammering Mississippi, 30-0, last week.

Missouri has the offense built to score from anywhere on the field, but the Arkansas defense creates more opportunities. The Tigers may score, but it won't be nearly enough.

Prediction: Razorbacks 24 Tigers 16


3:30 pm Stanford at UCLA (-5, 50) - With a 9-2 mark, the Bruins are getting some mention of being a two-loss team in the final four, but this is a must-win game for them, and, despite a 6-5 record, the Cardinal isn't going to go down easily.

The Bruins dusted arch-rival USC with ease last week, 38-20, and should wrap up the PAC-12 South with a win, looking ahead to the conference championship vs. Oregon next week.

Prediction: Bruins 30 Cardinal 23

3:30 pm Colorado State (-7, 59 1/2) at Air Force - The Rams have to win here and hope Utah State beats Boise State on Saturday for a chance to play in the conference championship.

Colorado State has balance and the Air Force Falcons have not fared well against the better teams in the conference, losing to Utah State and San Diego State by double digits. Same result here.

Prediction: Rams 35 Falcons 21


3:30 pm Arizona State (-2, 56) at Arizona - Toss-up in one of the great PAC-12 rivalries. Arizona State may have played a tougher schedule, but the Wildcats have won three straight, including last week's 42-10 destruction at Utah, and come into the game pumped up.

A UCLA loss gives the winner of this game the PAC-12 South title and a trip to the championship game.

Prediction: Wildcats 37 Sun Devils 31


Saturday, November 29

12:00 pm South Carolina at Clemson (-4 1/2, 58) - The Gamecocks had a horrible season and are just 6-5 (3-5 in the SEC), but can make amends here in the battle for Palmetto State dominance, but 8-3 Clemson clearly has the better team (#8 in points allowed, 17.6 per game) and home field, a big difference-maker.

Prediction: Tigers 41 Gamecocks 14


--- Story continues below ---


12:00 pm Michigan at Ohio State (-21, 52 1/2) - Blowout city. Ohio State will play for the Big Ten title next week and should be a part of the national championship picture.

Prediction: Buckeyes 56 Wolverines 13


12:00 pm Georgia Tech at Georgia (-13, 66) - Sure, Georgia is good, very good, but the Yellow Jackets are certainly no pushovers, as they will play Florida State next week in the ACC championship, and therein lies the issue in the huge point spread.

Tech may rest key players, whereas Georgia can play for the SEC title only is Arkansas beats Missouri on Friday. That result will be known by game time, so the Bulldogs may rest players as well, making this game a moot point.

Look for wild point swings in the event of a Missouri loss, but stick with the Jackets, whatever occurs.

Prediction: Yellow Jackets 36 Bulldogs 34


12:00 pm Kentucky at Louisville (-12 1/2, 53) - Louisville has produced an 8-3 mark in their first ACC season, and have reeled off back-to-back road wins over Boston College and Notre Dame.

Kentucky is 5-6, but their record may be a bit misleading as they play in the SEC. This game is about pric=de in Kentucky and the Wildcats should stay close and won't give up easily.

Prediction: Cardinals 34 Wildcats 27
