Week 14 College Football Preview
By Jacob Brandwein

No. 19 Houston vs. No. 22 Temple

Time/TV: 12:00 PM EST, Dec. 5 ABC

Outlook: The first game under the micrscope this coming weekend will be the American Athletic Conference championship game featuring the Owls and the Cougars. The Owls will need to slow down Houston's offense led by the elusive Greg Ward Jr. Ball control and defense will be an essential to victory for the Owls to slow down an explosive Houston team. The Cougars will be too difficult to stop for Temple and the Cougars will come out victorious at the end of the day.

Houston 37 Temple 27

No. 18 Florida vs. No. 2 Alabama

Time/TV: 4:00 PM EST, Dec 5 CBS

Outlook: The SEC championship features what most think will be a rout in favor of Alabama over the Florida Gators. The Gators have been terrible offensively and last week continued that claim only scoring two points against rival Florida State. The Crimson Tide have been just plugging away and going about their business behind the nations best defense and heisman front runner tailback Derrick Henry. The Crimson Tide are big favorites for good reason. The Gators will struggle to cross the 50 yard line let alone score on the Alabama Crimson Tide; Alabama wins in a rout.

Alabama 24 Florida 0

No. 7 Stanford vs. No. 20 USC

Time/TV: 7:45 PM EST, Dec. 5 ESPN

Outlook: This looks to be a very intriguing game with potential college football playoff implications for Stanford should there be chaos in other games this weekend. Nonetheless, this is for the pac 12 championship and its been a competitive year in this conference. Some could argue this has been one of the best conferences this year in college football. Southern Cal is coming off of a great win against rival UCLA, Stanford won in dramatic fashion at home against Notre Dame. If Stanford is to come out on top in this game, the leadership of quarterback Kevin Hogan will be a factor as well running back Christian McCaffery. USC will need Cody Kessler to rally the offense and for the defense to step up and make key stops. The Cardinal will be able to established a balanced offensive attack and control the ball more than USC. That in my opinion will give Stanford the edge and thus they will win this game.

Stanford 34 USC 28

No. 10 North Carolina vs. No. 1 Clemson

Time/TV: 8:00 PM EST, Dec. 5 ABC

Outlook: Oh boy here we go, this is the game that could be remembered for a long time if the Tar Heels can pull off this win over top ranked Clemson. North Carolina is having a great season and this win could potentially get them into the college football playoff, who knows what could happen. The Heels will need to stay hot offensively and put pressure on Deshaun Watson and the Clemson offense to keep up with them. Clemson has a strong defense and will have to contain quarterback Marquise Williams to slow down the Tar Heels offense. North Carolina will need to shore up its rushing defense against a strong rushing attack in Clemson. This will ultimately come down to how North Carolina starts out, as the game goes on if its close this could put added pressure on Clemson. Clemson is expected to win however, the pressure is on them to stay undefeated and punch their ticket to the college football playoff and they haven't been playing too impressive lately against weaker opponents. I am making the upset pick and will take the Tar Heels to knock off Clemson in a thriller.

North Carolina 36 Clemson 31

No. 5 Michigan State vs. No. 4 Iowa

Time/TV: 8:17 PM EST, Dec. 5 FOX

Outlook: This is the biggest game of the weekend by far. This is essentially a play in game for the college football playoff and obviously for the Big Ten championship. Amid all off the buzz about Iowa's schedule, how they play or whatever anyone wants to say about Iowa; they're undefeated and are an improbable run. The Spartans are playing great football and have their main man Connor Cook back under center. They dismantled Penn State last weekend and built on a win against big bad Ohio State in Columbus with two backup quarterbacks. This will be a very physical game that will largely be determined by who makes less mistakes and establishing the battle up front. Michigan State is better at the skill positions and at quarterback, Iowa is better in the offensive line and running backs. Both teams have strong defenses. Iowa hasn't faced a quarterback like Connor Cook all year and I think they will have difficulty slowing him down and that will give Michigan State the edge in this game; the quarterback play sets these teams apart and Michigan State was able to win the battle up front against Ohio State so they will against Iowa.

Michigan State 27 Iowa 17

Last Week: 4-4

Season Record: 37-23
