2007 College Football Predictions - Week 6

Lots of action in the the Big 12 this week. You've got:

  • The Red River Rivalry with both teams worrying about who's going to start 0-2 in conference.
  • Undefeated Kansas against rival Kansas State to see who wins the battle of Kansas
  • Nebraska vs Missouri - the two teams who were crowned the only pre-season contenders in the Big 12 North.

Oh, hell, we should have been keeping track of these from the start of the season, shouldn't we? I'm certain I'm crushing Mike, but if you take a look at In the Bleachers, I'm not exactly inspiring confidence, although last week was pretty rough on everybody.

TV listings are available at In the Bleachers also so you can plan your weekend. All times are Eastern.

Who knows what this week holds! Let chaos reign!

  • Big 12 Games

  • Nebraska @ Missouri

    Line: Missouri by 7

    Husker Mike:  The WAC lives again, with 2 sucky defenses and two quarterbacks who like to throw...  It's there and the home crowd will be especially violent: Mizzou 52, Huskers 49

    corn blight:  I noticed that even Adrian Fiala picked Mizzou in this one. There is an amazing lack of confidence in Nebraska fans this week. Missouri at night isn't that scary.  Huskers: 31, Tigers 28

  • Colorado @ Baylor
    Line: Colorado by 8

    Husker Mike: Vegas must be expecting a CU letdown... only 8 pts? Buffies 27, Bears 10

  • Kansas @ Kansas State

    Line: KSU by 3

    Husker Mike:  Last week, we learned KSU was for real.  KU, we don't know since they've blown out 4 nobodies. KSU 35, Kansas 24
