#11 Michigan at #13 Wisconsin
The spread is Wisconsin by 3, and rightfully so. Out of the first two games each team has played, Wisconsin has scored 110 points and given up 0… that’s a big stat line to remember. On the other hand, Michigan has scored 64 points but given up 42. I see Wisconsin’s offense dominating Michigan early in this one, I don’t think Michigan has a good shot here considering Shea Patterson has only 410 yards, 3 touchdowns, 0 INT, and 4 fumbles (3 of them lost). Wisconsin’s QB though, Jack Coan has 564 yards, 5 touchdowns, 0 INT, and 0 fumbles. Wisconsin also has a dynamic running back in Jonathan Taylor who has 302 total yards, and 8 touchdowns on the season already. I see Wisconsin winning this one, 31-17.
#8 Auburn at #17 Texas A&M
3-0 Auburn vs 2-1 TA&M. Auburn gained serious momentum after defeating then ranked #11 Oregon in the first week of the season, 27-21. Quarterback Bo Nix has struggled since then though, posting a quarterback rating of just 64.9 which ranks 50th in the nation currently. For A&M, quarterback Kellen Mond has shown flashes of having a bright season, despite struggling in their loss to the best team in the nation 2 weeks ago, Clemson. I think Auburn moves up to 4-0 here though, with a win over Texas A&M by the score of 24-21.
#7 Notre Dame at #3 Georgia
Powerhouse vs Powerhouse. The spread is calling for a Georgia victory by 14, but I disagree there. Yes, Notre Dame struggled in week 1 vs Louisville but they also got it together during their by week and smashed New Mexico State last week 66-14. When you post 66 points, regardless of who you play, you’re doing something right. ND has scored a total of 101 points, and gave up a total of 31 so far (over the course of 2 games). Georgia has posted 148 points and given up 47. I think this game is really going to be fun to watch and I think it’s rightfully aired at 8 p.m. so we can all relax at home and enjoy it, I’m rolling with the upset in this one though, Notre Dame pulls it off in Georgia by a score of 38-35… maybe. Georgia might end up taking it home 31-27. It’s simply too hard to call. Ian Book has to have the best game of his life for the Irish to pull out a win here.
