Double D, Boston Herald: Southern Methodist is a 9-point underdog at Central Florida. The nearly double-digit head start seems a bit generous. Take the Mustangs and ride them to victory.
Lenn Robbins, New York Post: Connecticut has won four in a row and can win the Big East title with a victory at South Florida. It would make for a great story, but it's not going to happen.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: Hlastradamus says the NCAA didn't free Cam Newton just to have Auburn lose the Southeastern Conference title game. Take the Tigers and give the the points.
John Tamanaha, NBC Sports: The Friday night special. The Mid-American Conference title is on the line in Detroit and there's no stopping Northern Illinois, which has too much offense for Miami (Ohio).
Heisman Pundit: Lane Kiffin usually wins when all appears to be lost and he loses when all appears to be going well. Kiffin's USC Trojans will beat UCLA, but they won't get the cover. Take the Bruins and the points.
Erick Smith, Campus Rivalry: Landry Jones has been outstanding as Oklahoma totaled 100 points in defeats of Baylor and Oklahoma State in the last two weeks. Nebraska hasn't looked the same since Taylor Martinez went down because of an ankle injury. Take the Sooners to win the Big 12 title game.
