Can “Ole Miss” regroup from their recent 3-game losing streak to rain on the parade in state rival Mississippi State? How about the Texas Longhorns chances as an underdog versus a TCU team which is primed to capture one of the 4-spots in the College Football playoffs on New Year’s Day?

They need to win, and then hope that just one of the following teams Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, or Mississippi State loses. Even then there’s a possibility of Ohio State or Baylor passing them based on what the College Football playoff committee decides. An impressive win, with style points certainly wouldn’t hurt, especially after their struggles to beat a 3-8 Kansas team. Texas won’t go down without a fight, and will certainly be installed as a home underdog in <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/college-football/" target="_blank" title="College Football odds">College Football odds</a>.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/college-football/free-picks/capper-consensus-report-favors-underdog-tcu-vs-texas-a-51723/" target="_blank" title="Capper Consensus Report Favors Underdog in TCU vs. Texas"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: TCU vs. Texas</em></a></p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/free-ncaaf-pick-tcu-vs-texas/51679/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Free NCAAF Pick: TCU vs. Texas"><em>Free College Football Pick: TCU vs. Texas</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/lsu-vs-texas-a-m-bettors-guide-this-young-sec-rivalry/51689/" target="_blank" title="LSU vs. Texas A&amp;M: Bettors Guide to This Young SEC Rivalry">LSU (7-4) vs. Texas A&amp;M (7-4)</a> 7:30 PM ET</strong><br /> Both teams are already bowl eligible, and don’t have a heck of a lot to play for but bragging rights.

They’re coming off a demolition of arch rival USC on Saturday, and will be facing a Stanford team that will be hungry to atone for a disappointing season by their standards. UCLA holds the tiebreaker over both Arizona and Arizona State in the PAC12 South Division. Keep in mind when placing your <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/" target="_blank" title="College Football Picks">College Football pick</a> here, that a win for the Bruins will earn them a spot in the PAC12 Championship Game versus Oregon.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/betting-guide-stanford-cardinal-vs-ucla-bruins-football/51742/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Betting Guide for Stanford Cardinal vs. UCLA Bruins Football"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: Stanford vs. UCLA</em></a></p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/money-line-su-ncaaf-picks-stanford-vs-ucla/51649/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Money Line &amp; SU NCAAF Picks: Stanford vs. UCLA"><em>Free College Football Pick: Stanford vs. UCLA</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/arizona-vs-arizona-state-battle-the-territorial-cup/51692/" target="_blank" title="Arizona vs. Arizona State in Battle for the Territorial Cup">Arizona State (9-2) vs. Arizona</a> (9-2) 3:30 PM ET</strong><br /> It is real simple for both of these teams. They need to win, and then pray that Stanford can upset UCLA. If the Bruins falter, it will be one of these schools playing for the PAC12 title. Arizona has won the last 2 meetings in this series, and that includes last season’s 58-21 rout at Arizona State.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/ncaaf-betting-edge-found-arizona-state-vs-arizona/51673/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="NCAAF Betting Edge Found in Arizona State vs. Arizona"><em>Free Colege Football Pick: Arizona State vs. Arizona</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/virginia-virginia-tech-fight-commonwealth-cup/51718/" target="_blank" title="Virginia &amp; Virginia Tech to Fight for Commonwealth Cup">Virginia (5-6) vs. Virginia Tech</a> (5-6) 8:00 PM ET</strong><br /> Virginia will be motivated to snap a 9-game losing streak in this series. They should have no excuses this season versus a Hokies team that’s enduring a tough season, and that certainly was magnified during a 6-3 overtime loss at Wake Forest (3-8 overall/1-6 ACC) this past Saturday, in a game that was tied 0-0 at the end of the 4th quarter.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/football-experts-agree-pick-under-virginia-virginia-tech/51744/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Football Experts Agree: Pick 'Under' for Virginia/Virginia Tech"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: Virginia vs. Virginia Tech</em></a></p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/virginia-vs-virginia-tech-ncaa-football-odds-predictions/51644/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Virginia vs. Virginia Tech NCAA Football Odds &amp; Predictions"><em>Free College Football Pick: Virginia vs. Virginia Tech</em></a></p> <p><strong>Saturday 11/29</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/michigan-vs-ohio-state-college-football-rivalry-preview/51725/" target="_blank" title="Michigan vs. Ohio State College Football Rivalry Preview">Michigan (5-6) vs. Ohio State</a> (10-1) 12:00 PM ET</strong><br /> If Brady Hoke has an iota of a chance of saving his job at Michigan, it would be to spring the huge upset versus their biggest rival. Some will say that this is arguably the biggest College Football rivalry game of them all. The national interest of this annual clash has been diminished due to the Buckeyes winning in 9 of the last 10 meetings versus the Wolverines.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/pick-ohio-state-20-over-michigan-week-14-college-football/51671/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Pick Ohio State -20 Over Michigan for Week 14 College Football"><em>Free College Football Pick: Michigan vs. Ohio State</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/mississippi-state-vs-ole-miss-college-football-rivalry-preview/51739/" target="_blank" title="Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss College Football Rivalry Preview">Mississippi State (10-1) vs. Mississippi (8-3)</a> 3:30 PM ET</strong><br /> This game shaped up to be a lot bigger a few weeks back when both were undefeated, and ranked as the top two teams in the country. Since then, “Ole Miss” has lost 3 in a row, and Mississippi State lost at Alabama. Despite the loss, the Bulldogs are still in position to be part of the 4-team national playoff with a win, and especially if Auburn can pull the upset of Alabama.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/bet-mississippi-state-ats-vs-ole-miss-week-14-ncaaf/51670/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Bet Mississippi State ATS vs. Ole Miss for Week 14 NCAAF"><em>Free College Football Pick: Mississippi State vs. Mississippi</em></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/top-ranked-florida-state-faces-florida-rivalry-weekend/51727/" target="_blank" title="Top Ranked Florida State faces Florida for Rivalry Weekend"><strong>Florida (6-4) vs. Florida State (11-0)</strong></a><strong> 3:30 PM ET</strong><br /> The Gators have a lame duck coach in Will Muschamp that would like nothing better than to leave his mark by ending the Seminoles 26-game winning streak. Speaking of the Seminoles, they’ve given their fan base a lot of anxious moments over the last few weeks. My gut feeling is that <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/college-football-picks-florida-state-heavy-favorite-win-acc/40462/" target="_blank" title="FSU A Dynasty In The Making?">Florida State has to remain undefeated</a> if they hope to repeat as national champions, based on some less than impressive wins this season.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/determining-best-bet-florida-vs-florida-state-football/51758/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Determining Best Bet for Florida vs. Florida State Football"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: Florida vs. Florida State</em></a></p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/pick-gators-7-5-saturday-s-florida-vs-florida-state/51708/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Pick Gators +7.5 in Saturday's Florida vs. Florida State"><em>Free College Football Pick: Florida vs. Florida State</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/college-football-rivalry-preview-baylor-vs-texas-tech/51733/" target="_blank" title="College Football Rivalry Preview for Baylor vs Texas Tech">Baylor (9-1) vs. Texas Tech (4-7)</a> 3:30 PM ET</strong><br /> Those of us outside of Lubbock and Waco probably have little idea that this is even considered a rivalry game. The only thing in question pertaining to this matchup, will be whether the Red Raiders will be able to get inside a huge number that they will be receiving. The only one than can beat Baylor in this game is the Bears themselves.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/add-over-your-ncaaf-picks-baylor-vs-texas-tech/51709/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Add 'Over' to Your NCAAF Picks for Baylor vs. Texas Tech"><em>Free College Football Pick: Baylor vs. Texas Tech</em></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/oregon-vs-oregon-state-civil-war-showdown/51751/" target="_blank" title="Oregon vs. Oregon State 'Civil War' Showdown"><strong>Oregon (10-1) vs. Oregon State (5-6)</strong></a><strong> 3:30 PM ET</strong><br /> The Ducks can ill afford to stub their toe in this in state rivalry game. They’re in the driver’s seat in terms of being part of the College Football playoff festivities on New Year’s Day. Mike Riley’s team would like nothing better than to be the proverbial spoiler. The Beavers are in desperate need of a win to become bowl eligible. Oregon has won the last 5 in this series.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/-civil-war-rivalry-betting-preview-oregon-vs-oregon-state/51757/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="'Civil War' Rivalry Betting Preview: Oregon vs. Oregon State"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: Oregon vs. Oregon State</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/michigan-st-faces-penn-st-spot-big-ten-championship/51726/" target="_blank" title="Michigan St. Faces Penn St. for Spot in Big Ten Championship">Michigan State (9-2) vs. Penn State (6-5)</a> 3:30 PM ET</strong><br /> Michigan State was hoping they would have much more to play for at this juncture. Now it’s just a matter of what’s the highest profile bowl game they can participate in. The Nittany Lions are coming off a terrible upset loss at Illinois this past Saturday. After starting the season by going 4-0, Penn State has gone 2-5 in the last 7. In terms of interest, this one fits in the ho-hum category.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/bet-over-michigan-state-vs-penn-state-college-football/51710/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Bet 'Over' for Michigan State vs. Penn State College Football"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: Michigan State vs. Penn State</em></a></p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/michigan-st-faces-penn-st-spot-big-ten-championship/51726/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Michigan St. Faces Penn St. for Spot in Big Ten Championship"><em>Free College Football Pick: Michigan State vs. Penn State</em></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/south-carolina-clemson-meet-palmetto-bowl/51729/" target="_blank" title="South Carolina &amp; Clemson Meet in Palmetto Bowl"><strong>South Carolina (6-5) vs. Clemson (8-3)</strong></a><strong> 7:00 PM ET</strong><br /> This one doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot outside of the state of South Carolina. However, it should be one of the most offensively entertaining games of the day.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/take-south-carolina-4-pts-vs-clemson-week-13-betting/51647/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Take South Carolina +4½ Pts. vs. Clemson in Week 13 Betting"><em>Handicapper's Consensus Report: South Carolina vs. Clemson</em></a></p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/take-south-carolina-4-pts-vs-clemson-week-13-betting/51647/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Take South Carolina +4½ Pts. vs. Clemson in Week 13 Betting"><em>Free College Football Pick: South Carolina vs. Clemson</em></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/rivarly-weekend-betting-preview-auburn-vs-alabama/51738/" target="_blank" title="Rivarly Weekend Betting Preview: Auburn vs. Alabama">Auburn (8-3) vs. Alabama (10-1)</a> 7:45 PM ET</strong><br /> This will be arguably the most anticipated game of the day. Alabama fans are still seething after last season’s loss at Auburn which cost them a chance at their 4th national title in 5-years. The loss was bad enough, but losing in the manner in which they did was hard to swallow. In case you were living under a rock, the Tigers returned a potential game winning field goal by the Crimson Tide that fell short for a touchdown in the waning seconds of the 4th quarter. The win propelled Auburn to the 2014 BCS Championship Game where they lost to Florida State. Can the Auburn Tigers do it again to their fierce rival? Stay tuned as there’s plenty more to come on this game at SBR this week.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/auburn-vs-alabama-college-football-picks/51648/" style="text-align:center" target="_blank" title="Auburn vs. Alabama College Football Picks"><em>Free College Football Pick: Auburn vs. Alabama</em></a></p>
