NCAA Week 13: “Football Four Pack” of Picks with Analysis

By College Football

Missouri @ Texas A&M -22

Missouri looking to get to six wins and a bowl game heading into College Station this Saturday.  A&M quarter back Johnny Manziel has been nothing short of spectacular this season and is considered the frontrunner to win the Heisman.  Think the Aggies want to pad “Johnny Football’s” stats before the Heisman vote?  Mizzou hasn’t been able to stop anyone in the SEC and this game will be no different.  Texas A&M rolls and the Tigers fail to qualify for a bowl game.

Play: Texas A&M -22

Utah @ Colorado +24

Utah was eliminated from bowl contention a week ago in a loss to Arizona.  This will mark the first time in 9 seasons that the Utes will be staying home for the holidays.  Colorado has been terrible this season, but they’ll stay close against a disinterested Utah team.

Play: Colorado +24  (Game played on Friday, November 23)

Michigan State @ Minnesota +8

Spartans are looking to become bowl eligible after back to back 11 win seasons.  Minnesota is already bowl eligible and looking to better its positioning in the Big ten bowl pecking order.  Becoming eligible for a low level bowl is not a lot of motivation for a Spartans team used to playing on New Years Day.  Spartans are more talented team, but  this will be a close, low scoring game on a cold day in Minneapolis.

Play:  Minnesota +8

Boston College @ NC State  -14

Both teams like to throw the ball around if for no other reason than they can’t run the ball.  Boston College ranks 118th in the nation in rushing while NC State ranks 106th.  Wolfpack quarterback Mike Glennon has thrown 27 touchdowns this season and should easily move the ball against the Eagles defense.  In what should be a long game with a lot of passing, look for NC State to score and score often against a Boston College team that has yet to cover the spread on the road this year.

Play:  NC State -14

YTD Record: 13-11
