College Football Week 11 Game Predictions


College Football Week 11 Game Predictions

By ,

#25 Washington @ #6 Oregon

Matt: The game between Washington and Oregon is always a fun one. It’s the battle for supremacy in the Pacific Northwest. Washington has a chance to take Oregon out from any College Football Playoff possibilities while the Ducks can move even closer to making that a reality. Oregon is at home which will give them a major advantage here. Quarterback Bo Nix has been playing great this season and has seemed to figure things out since leaving Auburn. I see this being a high scoring game with the Ducks coming out on top.

Oregon-37 Washington-30

Marissa: After how they started the season against Georgia, Oregon has really turned things around and Bo Nix looks like a true Heisman candidate. Washington has bounced back from their two game losing streak and have won their last three. But it has been on Michael Penix Jr. and the offense to outscore their opponents as their defense has been allowing opposing offenses to move the ball with ease on them. In the nine game win streak Oregon has been on, they have scored over 40 points in each. If there is one weakness for Oregon it is their pass defense that is the 15th worst allowing 276.6 passing yards per game. This should be a shootout between two efficient pass teams. Yet, Oregon has the edge at home to pull away with the win.

Oregon-48 Washington-31


#1 Georgia @ Mississippi State

Matt: Once Georgia took down Tennessee last week, they all but assured their chances of going back to the College Football Playoff unless something crazy happens. Mississippi State is a good team and may give the Bulldogs a challenge but I can’t really see them taking down Georgia. The Bulldogs are too well built and coached so I see them getting another win on the season.

Georgia-40 Mississippi State-20

Marissa: The Georgia Bulldogs knocked off the number one ranked Tennessee Volunteers in their last matchup with a 27-13 win. It may look close, but in reality it wasn’t really close at all. Georgia felt disrespected being ranked third instead of first and even with the win, the Bulldogs will be coming into this matchup with the same mindset. Mississippi State, on the other hand, is coming off a 39-33 overtime win against Auburn. Mississippi State is led on offense by Will Rogers, who is leading the air raid offense with completing 68.3% of his passes for 2,912 yards. Even with this pass-heavy offense, we just saw Georgia shutdown Hendon Hooker and Tennessee holding him to 195 yards and intercepting him. Georgia’s defense is allowing only 10.8 points per game, while Mississippi State is allowing 24 points per game. Trying to limit Stetson Bennett, Brock Bowers, Kendall Milton, and Ladd McConkey will be too much for Mississippi State to slow down. 

Georgia-36 Mississippi State-24


#4 TCU @ #18 Texas

Matt: A win against TCU would almost grant them a good chance at making the College Football Playoff. Texas is their last real test on the schedule unless they were to drop a game that they shouldn’t. This won’t be easy because Texas is a good program that has been playing much better of late. If they can slow down running back Bijan Robinson, they’ll have a great shot at winning this game. I think TCU knows how much is at stake here and will come out ready to go. I like the Horned Frogs to take this game by a narrow margin.

TCU-37 Texas-35

Marissa: TCU keeps finding ways to get things done and remain undefeated. They have a balanced offense led by Max Duggan at quarterback, throwing for 2,407 yards and 24 touchdowns to his two favorite targets, Quentin Johnston and Taye Barber. On the ground they have Kendre Miller who has 1,009 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Texas Longhorns though have an offense to match the Horned Frogs with Quinn Ewers throwing for 1,336 yards and 13 touchdowns with Xavier Worthy and Ja’Tavion Sanders being his two top targets. On the ground is where a majority of their production comes from with one of the best running backs in the country Bijan Robinson going for 1,129 yards and 12 touchdowns. Both defenses are allowing over 25 points per game, so this should be a high scoring game as both offenses click. Ewers has been prone to interceptions with five, the Horned Frogs defense has capitalized on that this season with 10. If they can force Ewers to make a mistake, they could seal the game winning interception.

TCU-47 Texas-44


#9 Alabama @ #9 Ole Miss

Matt: No way Alabama losses again this season right? RIGHT? At this point, we can’t even say that because they just haven’t been the same team many have become accustomed too. They aren’t good on the road and face another tough test here. Ole Miss is going to be ready for the Crimson Tide and have been some cracks in their normally strong armour appear. Ole Miss presents a similar problem for Alabama that has plauged them this season. However, I just can’t realistically dropping two games in a row, even this season. Give me the Crimson Tide to get back on track here

Alabama-31 Ole Miss-20

Marissa: Well, what a turn this season took for Alabama after they suffered their second loss of the season to LSU. Bryce Young and Jahmyr Gibbs are the offense for the Crimson Tide, as they have made up for the lack of talent not stepping up around them. Alabama had trouble slowing down Jayden Daniels in the LSU game, and Ole Miss quarterback Jaxson Dart has a similar skill set with his dual-threat ability. He has passed for 1,911 yards and rushed for 473 yards so far this season. The ground game is the key for Ole Miss as running back Quinshon Judkins leads the rushing attack with 1,036 yards and is coming off their last game two weeks ago where he ran for 205 yards. Ole Miss will have to keep the clock running as their weakness on defense is their pass defense, and even with the receiving group, Young has still been able to elevate the receivers. Alabama has struggled on the road, and Ole Miss has the ability to keep this game close, but the Crimson Tide edge out the close road win.

Alabama-28 Ole Miss-24


#22 UCF @ #17 Tulane

Matt: Tulane is for real. They just are different this season and are a force to deal with. Eexpect this to be a lower scoring contest as both teams are good defensively. The key in this matchup will be whichever team can win the turnover battle. UCF has a challenge ahead of them, especially having to go on the road here. I think this is one of the better games of the weekend. Give me the home team to hold serve however.

Tulane-17 UCF-14

Marissa: This is a new, different Tulane team this year. One that looks to win the AAC for the first time in program history, but will need to get past a UCF team that has won seven of the last eight against Tulane. This will be a heavily defensive battle, the Green Wave are only allowing 16.9 points per game and UCF is right there with only allowing 18.8 points per game. The rushing attack is what stands out for both offenses. UCF has 2,159 yards on the ground and 24 touchdowns. Tulane has 1,622 yards and 20 touchdowns on the ground. They run to set up the pass, and the run defense for UCF has allowed less yardage than Tulane but more touchdowns. That should be where Tulane can find the advantage to win. 

Tulane-24 UCF-21
