Don't Bet On It!: Week Nine College Football Forecasts for the National Games of Interest

You have been treated to an exacting game-by-game analysis in this week’s SEC forecasts, so our attention now shifts to the important outings occurring elsewhere in the country. Another 3-2 ledger in last week’s national predictions stranded me at 26-15 for the fall as a whole, so it should go without saying that I mean it when I tell you . . . Don’t Bet On It!

Here are my picks for this week’s slate of noteworthy national games, all of which will be played on Saturday, October 30, unless otherwise noted, and with respect to which you may detect a recurring theme:

Florida St. Seminoles at N.C. State Wolfpack (Thursday, Oct. 28): No one in Bulldog Nation cares about this game. It’s the week of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, for crying out loud! Florida State.

Oklahoma St. Cowboys at Kansas St. Wildcats: No one in Bulldog Nation cares about this game. It’s the week of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, for crying out loud! Oklahoma State.

Utah Utes at Air Force Falcons: No one in Bulldog Nation cares about this game. It’s the week of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, for crying out loud! Air Force.

Missouri Tigers at Nebraska Cornhuskers: No one in Bulldog Nation cares about this game. It’s the week of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, for crying out loud! Nebraska.

Michigan St. Spartans at Iowa Hawkeyes: No one in Bulldog Nation cares about this game. It’s the week of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, for crying out loud! Michigan State.

Oregon Ducks at USC Trojans: No one in Bulldog Nation cares about this game. It’s the week of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, for crying out loud! Oregon.

I know that’s a treasure trove of insight and minutiae, but, even so, you still shouldn’t put too much stock in my prognostications, so, whatever you do, . . . Don’t Bet On It!
