Week 12 College Football Preview Schedule & Betting Odds

While there were plenty of upsets across the board in Week 11, none of them figure to impact the playoff picture. There were no big upsets, as the Top 10 teams all came out victorious. In fact, most of them dominated. The only real scare came in Norman, where No. 6 Oklahoma held on for a 48-47 win over in-state rival Oklahoma State. Thanks to a failed 2-point conversions by the Cowboys with 1:03 left to play.

No. 1 Alabama won at home 24-0 over No. 16 Mississippi State, No. 2 Clemson won 27-20 at No. 17 Boston College, No. 3 Notre Dame Cruised 42-13 at home over FSU and No. 4 Michigan rolled Rutgers 42-7. Win and you are in for these four teams. Will they be able to handle the pressure?

We can be pretty sure that Alabama will stay unbeaten, as they basically have a bye with The Citadel coming to Tuscaloosa this week. It’s also likely No. 2 Clemson (home against Duke) and No. 4 Michigan (home against Indiana) both win. The big potential upset comes in South Bend, where No. 3 Notre Dame hosts No. 13 Syracuse

Overall this week’s card just isn’t all that great, that’s because most teams conclude their regular-season play next week and a lot of schools play a big rival in the finale. That and championship week is when most of the chaos in the playoff race unfolds.

As far as handicapping this time of year, you want to make sure you are factoring in motivation and taking time to see who has something left to play for (division title or bowl eligibility) and who might be looking ahead to a bigger game.

You also have a lot of teams playing their final home games, which means senior night, and depending on the team, that can bring out a special effort if it’s a veteran team.

Weather is also a much bigger factor this time of year, so be sure you are checking the forecasts, especially before playing any totals.
