Auburn Tigers And Oklahoma Sooners Headline College Football Top-25 Games This Week
October 18th, 2010-  By Bryan Cross

No.6 LSU Tigers At No.4 Auburn Tigers

The SEC West division in college football is arguably the toughest in all of football, with five of the six in the division currently ranked in this week’s edition of the AP Top-25.  Auburn heads the class of the SEC, currently ranked fourth in the country and enters the match up with LSU unbeaten on the season.  LSU also comes into this one undefeated on the season, though they have had several close calls in which they could have lost.  For Auburn, the play of quarterback Cam Newton has been the difference, as he is arguably playing the best football in the country.  Auburn scores an average of 40.7 points per game in a defensive conference like the SEC, that includes a 65-point outing last week in a win over Arkansas.  For LSU, two narrow wins over Tennessee and Florida have defined their undefeated season so far.  A win of Auburn on the road however, no matter what margin, will silence the critics.  College Football Betting odds have set Auburn as a 6.5-point favorite over LSU.

No.1 Oklahoma Sooners At No.11 Missouri Tigers-

The Oklahoma Sooners may be ranked third in the human polls, but they are in the top spot in the ranking that counts the most, the Bowl Championship Series Standings.  There, the computers have vaulted the Sooners over Oregon and Boise State, holding down No.1 in the initial standings.  The Sooners travel  this Saturday night where they will face fellow the undefeated and Big XII conference foe Missouri.  Missouri enters this match up 6-0 on the year,  having rolled over Texas A&M a week ago.  The Tigers defense has been the story this year, ranking second in scoring defense by surrendering only 10.8 points per game. The Sooners have been set as a three-point favorite on USA Online Sportsbooks.

No.13 Wisconsin Badgers At No.15 Iowa Hawkeyes-

This could be one of the games of the year in the Big 10 conference as Wisconsin visits Iowa with the Badgers fresh off the upset of the former No.1 Ohio State Buckeyes.  Running back John Clay spearheaded the 31-18 upset of the Buckeyes, and now gets another tough test a week later, and must avoid a hangover effect from a big victory.  For Iowa, they come in looking to take control of the Big 10 conference.  A win for the Hawkeyes would give the edge to Iowa over Wisconsin even if they lose a conference game down the line, combined with the fact that Ohio State is not on the schedule.  Iowa is installed as a 6-point favorite on BetUs Sportsbook.

No.16 Nebraska Cornhuskers At No.14 Oklahoma State Cowboys-

Last week was supposed to be revenge and gratification for Cornhusker Nation.  Nebraska came in undefeated and ranked fifth in the nation, looking to stick it to a struggling Texas team that they feel took a Big XII conference championship from them last season.  That however, was not the case.  Texas came in a beat Nebraska, as the Cornhuskers fell to 16th in the rankings.  Quarterback Taylor Martinez, considered a Heisman candidate heading into the game, was benched in the second half.  A new week is a new opportunity however, and the Cornhuskers can’t afford to let the loss get to them, as No.14 Oklahoma State is on the slate.  The Cowboys rank second in the nation in offensive scoring, putting up 49.5 points per game, and can beat a defense rushing and passing.  The Cornhuskers have been set as a six-point favorite.
