Howie Kussoy, New York Post: Has there ever been a bigger football weekend in Mississippi? Mississippi plays host to Alabama and Mississippi State entertains Texas A&M. The teams are a combined 17-0. Reality check. The home teams are about to suffer their first losses of the season.
Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel, Fox Sports: Maryland has been making noise since joining the Big Ten. The Terrapins can make even more with big, bad Ohio State coming to town. It's not going to happen. The Buckeyes might not cover, but they're going to win.
Jon Wilner, College Hotline: Looking for Friday night action? Wilner says take San Diego State and give the points at Fresno State. He was 4-1 in his Pacific 12 picks last week and had Arizona on Thursday night. He is picking Stanford to beat Notre Dame and taking Utah and the points at UCLA.
Kelly Stewart, Las Vegas Review-Journal: Northwestern is coming off a huge road win at Penn State. That's great, bub, but now Wisconsin is coming to Evanston. Give the eight points and load up on the Badgers.
Saturday Down South: Brad Crawford and Christopher Smith pick the Southeastern Conference games.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: Hlastradamus has suffered his ups and downs, with his record standing at 11-12-2. That is nothing to be proud of, but it is about to change, beginning with Oklahoma State (-17) against Iowa State and Nebraska (+7.5) vs. Michigan State.
Reno Journal-Gazette: The underdog momentum is rolling. The handicappers are taking Pittsburgh (+6.5), Colorado (+7) and Nebraska (+7).
