  • Minnesota Golden Gophers at Ohio State Buckeyes; 3:00 PM – The Minnesota Gophers have one quality win out of their five victories, beating Iowa on the road, 12-10 a month ago. Maybe it will be possible for Minnesota to cover the 27.5-point spread, but the Buckeyes are not going to lose in the Shoe on Saturday.
  • Oregon Ducks at Arizona State Sun Devils; 3:00 PM – There is a small smattering of enthusiasm for the Sun Devils, who have won two of their last three games. Even with those wins, ASU is 3-7, with a blowout loss to Utah (55-3) two weeks ago. The Ducks are a 24.5-point favorite and while they might not cover, Oregon is not losing in Tempe.
  • North Alabama Lions (UNA) at Florida State Seminoles; TUNA, as North Alabama has been mostly fondly called going back decades, has zero chance of beating the Seminoles. That has nothing to do with the contest being in Tallahassee. The game could be held on a drought-hardened field of bare dirt on the UNA campus and FSU would still win by five or more touchdowns. No betting odds can be found.

There will be no help for the Alabama Crimson Tide in any of the three games.
