Picks Week 8

I am going solo this week on picks. Here are some breakdowns on the biggest games this Saturday.

#13 Wisconsin @ #15 Iowa: Score Iowa 35-Wisconsin 31
Coming off an emotional win is though. It makes it even tougher when you are playing the 15 ranked team in the country. Wisconsin's strong suit is running the football. They are not the best throwing the ball. Iowa has maybe the best front 4 in the country. In the quarterbacking battle I give Stanzi the edge of Tolzein. Iowa in a more of a high scoring game.

#16 Nebraska @ #14 Oklahoma State: Score Nebraska 24-Oklahoma State 13
Nebraska is mad after losing what was supposed to be their redemption game against Texas. This week they have an undefeated, but unproven Oklahoma State team. Taylor Martinez will get this offense back on track after what can be characterized as an unimpressive performance against Texas. This defense will hold steady as well. I look for Nebraska by double digits.

#6 LSU @ #4 Auburn: Score Auburn 31-LSU 28
Les Miles's luck is about to run out. Cam Newtons ability to wear down a whole defense by himself is just too much for this LSU team. This game will come down to a game winning drive capped off by a field goal. This is my lock of the week.

#1 Oklahoma @ #11 Missouri: Score Oklahoma 45-Missouri 28
This high-powered Oklahoma defense is going to be too much for the Missouri defense. The fact that Oklahoma has great players at QB, RB, and WR makes them the team to beat. The will handle their business on the road this week.-Josh Neighbors
