The path to the College Football Playoff narrows this week. Several teams are set to clash in big time matchups while others look to avoid upsets for another week.
The headliner of the week takes place between SEC West rivals LSU and Alabama. Texas has an interest in the game given its resume-defining win over the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Elsewhere, the Big 12 title race could be all but decided this week. Four one-loss conference teams face another team of the same conference pedigree on the day.
Texas and Kansas State meet for Big Noon Kickoff. Afterward Oklahoma and Oklahoma State play what could be the final Bedlam rivalry matchup. A loss could end a title bid for any of the four teams.
Let’s predict some of the best games from Week 10.
LSU at Alabama
LSU faces Alabama on the road at night. In this game they don’t fare as well as Texas did at Bryant-Denny Stadium. LSU’s defense continues its struggles and the Tide stays in the playoff hunt.
Alabama 37, LSU 30
Kansas State at Texas
Texas is less than full strength without starting quarterback Quinn Ewers. On the other side, Kansas State is playing its best football. The game has all the makings of an upset. That said, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian brings a great game plan and secures a win.
Texas 27, Kansas State 24
Oklahoma at Oklahoma State
A depleted Oklahoma roster travels to Stillwater for what could be the final game in the rivalry. I’m not sure the Sooners have the depth to replace those players. Oklahoma State running back Ollie Gordon has rushed for more than 270 yards in consecutive weeks. He goes off in the final Bedlam game for the foreseeable future.
Oklahoma State 38, Oklahoma 37
Missouri has had a great run this year. It’s unlikely the Tigers escape Sanford Stadium with a win. Georgia dominates and moves to the next test.
Georgia 30, Missouri 16
