A really stinky week of games for the Big 12. All of the Big 12 teams are favored other than Nebraska.
Colorado - Florida State may be a great game, but only because both teams are mediocre. Not a great game week across the nation, next to Nebraska, you have two good games out of the SEC: Tennessee - Florida and Arkansas - Alabama.
And then there's the Michigan - Notre Dame game. Can the Irish score?
Big 12 Games
USC @ Nebraska
Line: USC by 10
Husker Mike: Heart: NU 21, USC 17 Head: USC 31, NU 10
ESPN had a SoCal writer on today...said that USC is going to put 8 in the box and dare Keller to find a receiver before they sack him.
corn blight: Heart: NU 28, US 24 Head: NU 31, USC 24
Unless Sam Keller can somehow play like a madman, Nebraska will lose this game. He played like poo against Wake, but that two minute drill wasn't bad. He only missed one pass, and the TD pass was great. Maybe he's one of those guys that needs more pressure!
Texas State-San Marcos @ Baylor
Line: None - Texas State is Div IAA
Husker Mike: Baylor 56, Texas State 3
corn blight: Baylor 67, Texas State 10
Texas State - they were a favorite whipping boy of Big 12 during baseball season, weren't they? Is their baseball team coming back to Baylor?
Florida State @ Colorado
Line: FSU by 4
Husker Mike: FSU 24, CU 14
corn blight: CU 17, FSU 13 - Upset Special!
FSU doesn't have an offense, and CU can't finish a game. It's a great match up!
Iowa at Iowa State
Line: Iowa by 17
Husker Mike: Iowa 42, ISU 7
This one could get ugly, though it's a in-state rivalry.
corn blight: Iowa 38, ISU 13
I think even the Cyclones players will be drinking in the parking lot before that one .

Husker Mike: KU 66, Toledo 10
corn blight: KU 63, Toledo 13
Missouri State at Kansas State

Louisiana-Monroe @ Texas A&M
No Line: Aggies by 23.5
Husker Mike: Texas A&M 31, LAM 17
A&M isn't exactly dominating.
