College Football: Preweek 13 Polls
and Opponents

1/2/2/2 Alabama (9-1) The Crimson Tide will host an FCS team, the Western Carolina Catamounts (7-4). Should be an easy game for the Tide.

2/3/3/3 Oregon (9-1) The Ducks host the Colorado Rams (2-8). Party time in Eugene.

3/1/1/1 Florida State (10-0) The Seminoles will host the Boston College Eagles (6-4). FSU will win but it’s not the type of game that will impress anyone.

4/4/4/5 Mississippi State (9-1) The Bulldogs host the Vanderbilt Commodores (3-7) Bulldogs win.

5/5/5/4 TCU (9-1) The Aggies will be idle this week.

6/7/7/7 Ohio State (9-1) The Buckeyes host the Indiana Hoosiers (3-7) and are 35 point favorites. No problem for Ohio State.

7/6/6/6 Baylor (8-1) The Bears will host the Oklahoma State Cowboys (5-5). Baylor wins.

8/8/8/8 Ole Miss (8-2) The Rebels are on the road to play the Arkansas Razorbacks (5-5). Ole Miss should win.

9/11/12/13 UCLA (8-2) The Bruins will host the #19 Southern California Trojans (7-3). A chance for the Bruins to make a PAC12 statement.

10/9/10/9/ Georgia (8-2) The Bulldogs host the Charleston Southern Buccaneers (8-3), an FCS team. Easy game for Georgia.

11/10/9/10 Michigan State (8-2) The Spartans will host my Rutgers Scarlet Knights (6-4). MSU is a HUGE favorite (22 pts at this time).

12/12/11/12 Kansas State (7-2) The Wildcats head east to play the West Virginia Mountaineers (6-4).(KSU has won this game 26-20.)

13/13/14/14 Arizona State (8-2) The Sun Devils host the Washington State Cougars (3-7). Should be a good day for the Sun Devils.

14/16/17/17 Auburn (7-3) The Tigers host the Samford Bulldogs (7-3) (an FCS team). Auburn rolls over the Bulldogs.

15/15/13/16 Arizona (8-2) The Wildcats play on the road against the #17 Utah Utes (7-3). Good game with the Utes pulling it off.

16/14/15/11 Wisconsin (8-2) The Badgers will be on the road to play the Iowa Hawkeyes (7-3). Badgers run over the Hawkeyes.

17/20/21/25 Utah (7-3) The Utes will host the #15 Arizona Wildcats (8-2). The Utes win a close one.

21/23/22/22 Oklahoma (7-3) The Sooners host the Kansas Jayhawks (3-7). Another case of a huge favorite (the Sooners are 25 point favorites) and what should be a rout.

22/NR/NR/NR Clemson (7-3) The Tigers are hosting Georgia State Panthers (1-9) in what could be the biggest rout of the week. Clemson is favored by 41 points.

23/21/19/21 Nebraska (8-2) The Cornhuskers will host the #25 Minnesota Golden Gophers (7-3). Nebraska should win.

24/NR/NR/NR Louisville (7-3) The Cardinals head north to play the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame (7-3). Close game with someone winning. Depends upon who plays to lose.

25/NR/NR/NR Minnesota (7-3) The Golden Gophers hit the road to play the #23 Nebraska Cornhuskers (8-2). Nebraska.

NR/18/18/15 Marshall (10-0) The Thundering Herd put their undefeated season on the road and on the line against the UAB Blazers (5-5). The Herd should stomp ‘em.
