Week 12 College Football Preview
By Jacob Brandwein

No. 12 Michigan @ Penn State

Time/TV: 12:00 PM EST, Nov. 21 ABC

Outlook: This should be an interesting matchup between the Wolverines and the Nittany Lions. Its senior day in happy valley and a potential trap game for the Wolverines. Two solid defenses will face off and whichever offense that can muster up the timely scores will ultimately determine the difference in this game. I give the Wolverines the edge as Michigan's defense will be too much for Penn State's offense to handle and Jake Rudock will make timely plays.

Michigan 27 Penn State 19

No. 9 Michigan State @ No. 3 Ohio State

Time/TV: 3:30 PM EST, Nov. 21 ABC

Outlook: Another big showdown in the Big ten east division will go down in Columbus, Ohio which will feature the undisputed champs from 2014 in the Buckeyes and the Michigan State Spartans. This will obviously have not only conference implications but also national implications as well. There are multiple keys to this game and lets start with the Spartans on the offensive side of the ball. Their offensive line has been struggling and they will be facing Joey Bosa and a brutal pass rush. If the Spartans can't protect star quarterback Connor Cook then that could spell trouble. The defense will have to contain the versatile J.T. Barrett and deal with speed all around the field. Will Braxton Miller get more involved? How will Michigan State deal with heisman trophy candidate "zeke" elliot? The Buckeyes will need to set the tone early and put pressure on the Spartans to play catch up. The spartans will come out victorious if they can get out to an early lead and force mistakes from Ohio State. At the end of the day however, the Buckeyes will come out on top on their home turf behind a solid all around performance in all aspects of the game.

Ohio State 37 Michigan State 25

No. 15 LSU @ No. 22 Ole Miss

Time/TV: 3:30 PM EST, Nov. 21 CBS

Outlook: Here is an SEC showdown featuring the struggling LSU Tigers and the Ole Miss Rebels. The Tigers have lost two games in a row while the Rebels have been playing better as of late. The Tigers will need Leonard Fournette to get back on track against a solid run defense in Ole Miss. The Rebels have a prolific passing attack led by quarterback Chad Kelly. The key to this game is how will each defense stop the focal point of each other's offenses. How will Ole Miss continue to slow down Leonard Fournette and Will LSU be able to reasonably slow down Chad Kelly and a strong offense? I give the Rebels the edge at home against a struggling LSU team, this will be an entertaining game nonetheless.

Ole Miss 31 LSU 23

No. 20 Northwestern @ No. 25 Wisconsin

Time/TV: 3:30 PM EST, Nov. 21 Big Ten Network

Outlook: Another big showdown in the big ten will take place at Camp Randall Stadium between the Badgers and the Wildcats. These two teams have been having good seasons and this game will come down to mistake free smashmouth football. The Badgers have tailback Corey Clement and the Wildcats have Justin Jackson as this will be a battle of the running backs. The Badgers also have experience at quarterback behind Joel Stave. The Wildcats are battling injury issues in the offensive line and the secondary which could pose problems for them. I pick Wisconsin to take care of business at home and avenge last year's defeat.

Wisconsin 23 Northwestern 13

No. 13 Utah vs. UCLA

Time/TV: 3:30 PM EST, Nov. 21 FOX

Outlook: The Utes have lost running back Devontae Booker as he was the focal point of their offense. How will Utah adjust offensively against a strong UCLA defense? UCLA is coming off of a tough loss against Washington State and will look to avenge their loss. The Bruins are a strong road team and quarterback Josh Rosen has been having a strong freshman campaign. I think the Utes will have trouble establishing an offensive balance with the loss of Booker and Josh Rosen will have another strong performance. I got the Bruins winning on the road.

UCLA 34 Utah 26

No. 24 USC @ No. 23 Oregon

Time/TV: 3:30 PM EST, Nov. 21 ESPN

Outlook: This is a battle between two very hyped preseason teams yet they're resurging now. The Ducks are coming off of a great road win against Stanford, while the Trojans are playing better football as late. Quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. has been leading a potent Oregon offensive attack. USC quarterback Cody Kessler is very efficient and looks to pick apart a vulnerable Oregon defense. The Ducks have a more balanced offense that will really give USC problems on defense. Look for a high scoring game in Eugene with the Ducks coming out on top.

Oregon 47 USC 38

No. 10 Baylor @ No. 6 Oklahoma State

Time/TV: 8:00 PM EST, Nov. 21 FOX

Outlook: Another week of the big 12 being in the primetime spotlight as this is the center of attention for the playoff race for the debate between Notre Dame and a big 12 team. Nonetheless, this will be a very entertaining game between two high octane offenses in Baylor and Oklahoma State. The Bears lost a tough one at home against the Sooners and need a rebound win to have any hope of making the college football playoff. The Bears will need to set the tone and silence a hostile crowd and start fast. The Cowboys will need to be physical in covering wideout Corey Coleman as well. Quarterback Mason Rudolph has been having a great season for the Cowboys as he will look to pick apart a weak defense in Baylor. Oklahoma State showed they can slow down an explosive offense when they demorilized Trevone Boykin and TCU, while Baylor hasn't shown that yet when they struggled to stop Baker Mayfield and the Sooners last weekend on their home turf. The Cowboys will come out on top in this game and will fuel their argument for being in the top 4.

Oklahoma State 45 Baylor 37

No. 18 TCU @ No. 7 Oklahoma

Time/TV: 8:00 PM EST, Nov. 21 ABC

Outlook: Another big week for the Sooners as their quest for the top 4 continues. The Horned Frogs are now without star wideout Josh Doctson and star quarterback's Trevone Boykin's status is in doubt. The Sooners are coming off of a monumental win last weekend on the road in primetime in Waco against Baylor. Quarterback Baker Mayfield has been one of the best in the nation with an impressive 30-5 Touchdown to Interception ratio. He can also beat you with his legs too. The TCU defense will have a terrible time stopping this potent balanced Oklahoma offense while Oklahoma was able to slow down Baylor's explosive offense and will be able to do the same against a beat up TCU team. Oklahoma comes out victorious on their home turf.

Oklahoma 41 TCU 28

Last Week: 3-1

Season Record: 28-16
