2010 College Football Week 11 predictions

    • Virginia Tech at North Carolina. This is a deciding game for the ACC title. Virgina Tech (7-2) is undefeated in conference since the bizarre loss to James Madison.  (6-3) North Carolina, meanwhile, has had little luck this year with the early season suspensions to their top players and likely first round draft picks, DT Marving Austin and DE Robert Quinn. I expect a low scoring, defensive battle with VT and senior quarterback Tyrod Taylor to win this one.

  • Iowa at Northwestern. Iowa (7-2) has had a bit of a rollercoaster season. Looking absolutely dominant against MSU two weeks ago and then last week squeeking by Indiana with the smallest of margins. I think Northwestern (6-3) and head coach Pat Fitzgerland have a good team, but will struggle holding Iowa WR, Marvin McNutt from the endzone. Iowa should win this one but cannot underestimate Northwestern or their Big Ten title dreams will disappear.
  • South Carolina at Florida. Florida (6-3) and SC (6-3) are tied atop the SEC east standing and this game will decide the east representative in the SEC title game. Florida is one of the most talented team in the nation, but has struggled finding a quarterback to replace the departed Tim Tebow. John Brantley has not been the answer this year with a 1-1 touchdown to interception ratio. South Carolina is coached by former Florida legend Steve Spurrior and has super freshman running back, Marcus Lattimore. But, since beating then #1 Alabama, they have lost to Kentucky and Arkansas and have not looked very sharp. At home, Florida should beat their former ball coach.
  • Penn State at Ohio State. During the preseason, this game would have expected mean a lot more for the Big Ten race. Terrell Pryor and Ohio State (8-1) still are tied for the Big Ten lead and if they win out, they will either win or share the Big Ten title.  Penn State (6-3) and walk-ok quarterback, Matt Mcgloain, will be heavily outmatched.  Penn State, in the horseshoe, will go down to the buckeyes.
  • Michigan at Purdue. Michigan (6-3) has their confidence back after beating Illinois. Purdue (4-5), which its starting quarterback and the back up to injury has struggled clicking on offense. The Purdue defense should be able to slow Michigan offense down, but I don’t think the Purdue offense will be able to keep pace. Michigan should win their 7th of the year.
