Akron vs Toledo Pick

The final weekend of the college football betting campaign for a lot of teams kicks off this week at the Glass Bowl, where the Akron Zips will look to end a dismal season on a high note at the expense of the Toledo Rockets.

Stanford vs. Oregon Picks

The Pac-12 will be heating up on Saturday night at Autzen Stadium, as the Oregon Ducks look to clinch their spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game for the second straight year as they take on the Stanford Cardinal.

Head Coach David Shaw has to be reminding his team of the last two seasons that these two teams played against each other. In 2010, the Ducks were able to essentially knock the Cardinal out of the National Championship race, and last year, in a game that Stanford was supposed to win, it was trampled by Oregon 53-30 on this very same weekend.

Tennessee vs Vanderbilt Pick

SEC rivals from the Volunteer State are going to meet up in Nashville on Saturday night in a nationally televised college football betting showdown between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Tennessee Volunteers.

This has been an atrocious year for the Volunteers, but it isn’t all their fault. They are clearly not as good as some of the other great teams in the SEC, and as a part of their schedule this year, they have had to play games against the likes of Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi State, and Georgia.

Hawaii vs. Air Force Picks

The Mountain West will be on display on Friday night this week, as the Air Force Falcons try to take down the Hawaii Warriors in Colorado Springs.

It has been a brutally tough first season for Head Coach Norm Chow with the Warriors. The embattled longtime assistant for several teams has yet to log his first win against an FBS team in his career as a head coach, and the only cover that the club has came as 44.5 point underdogs against one of the teams that he used to be the OC for, the USC Trojans.

North Carolina vs. Virginia Pick

A pair of ACC Coastal Division rivals meet up at Scott Stadium on ESPN’s Thursday Night Football betting festivities, as the North Carolina Tar Heels try to end the bowl hopes of the Virginia Cavaliers.

UNC is starting to get the look of a team that doesn’t really care about the rest of its season. The defense was just downright atrocious against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last week, allowing 588 yards and a total of 68 points in a romp of a loss, and the offense, though has been putting up tons of points, has also looked sloppy at times as well.

Toledo vs. Northern Illinois Picks

First place in the MAC West and a likely spot in the MAC Championship Game will be handed out on Wednesday night in college football betting action, as the Northern Illinois Huskies host the Toledo Rockets.

The Rockets are clearly in some trouble after losing to the Ball State Cardinals last week at the Glass Bowl in surprising fashion. Toledo has had some major offensive problems all of a sudden, as the team has put up just 29 points or fewer in three straight games with QB Terrance Owens really struggling.

Kansas State vs. TCU Picks

The 2012 season for the Kansas State Wildcats hangs in the balance right now, as they looking to take their 10th straight game to start off this season when they hit the road to take on the TCU Horned Frogs in college football betting action.

The Wildcats have the eyes of the nation on them at this point, and they know that this is probably the toughest test that they are going to have to face for the rest of the year.

Pittsburgh vs Connecticut Pick

Two teams that are in dire need of a win are going to meet in NCAA football betting action on Friday night in Week 11 of the season, as the Pittsburgh Panthers take on the Connecticut Huskies.

The Panthers certainly slotted last week’s game against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish into the loss column before it got started, but the way that things went down at the end have to have you questioning whether they are going to be able to get off of the mat to finish the season.
