This past Saturday, outside of a couple of games, was a borderline disaster. However, week 10 of college football betting action is going to blow the socks off of the tamest duck. The combination of second-ranked LSU visiting Tuscolusa to take on No. 1 Alabama and No. 13 Minnesota hosting No. 5 Penn State. That makes two games that will take place on a single day involving both teams with a record of 8-0 or better. That’s a first in AP Poll era, which dates back to 1936.
College Football First Look Week 10

West Virginia (3-4) at Baylor (7-0)
at 8:00 PM ET
Both teams will be well-rested in this Big 12 battle after getting a bye this past weekend. Still, the unbeaten Baylor Bears have a double-digit scoring edge on both sides of the ball plus the motivation of trying to snap a three-game losing streak against a West Virginia team that has dropped three in a row.

Michigan (6-2) at Maryland (3-5)
at 12:00 PM ET
Michigan might not be a legitimate championship contender this season, but the Wolverines have dominated their Big Ten rivals in this series by winning four straight by at least 21 points. After putting 42 or more on the board in two of their last three games, Jim Harbaugh’s boys look like a lock to get past a Maryland team that got completely and utterly embarrassed at Minnesota this past weekend.
NC State (4-3) at Wake Forest (6-1)
at 12:00 PM ET
Sure, nothing good has come out of Wake Forest since Tim Duncan was suiting up for the ACC-based school, but right now, the Demon Deacons are nationally ranked. So what, it’s because the ACC is full of trash this season. NC State definitely fits that bill, having dropped three of five while alternating wins and losses during the span.
Virginia Tech (5-2) at Notre Dame (5-2)
at 2:30 PM ET
The Irish saw their faint playoff hopes go up in smoke thanks to their stunning 45-14 blowout loss against Michigan on Saturday. Now, Brian Kelly’s squad will get another test when they host a Hokies team that has won three straight while putting 42 or more on the board in two of those contests.
Georgia (6-1) at Florida (7-1)
3:30 PM ET
Georgia’s Week 7 upset at the hands of mediocre South Carolina doesn’t look good at all while Florida’s Week 7 defeat against No. 2 LSU doesn’t look too bad at all right now. The Gators will look to take care of business at home, but they’ve been blown out by the Bulldogs in each of the last two years. The loser of this affair will see their slim playoff hopes crushed.
Utah (7-1) at Washington (5-3)
at 4:00 PM ET
Washington might be playing at home, but the Huskies have lost two of three and suffered a discouraging collapse against Oregon the last time they took to the gridiron Utah has won four straight while not giving up more than 13 points along the way. Now, the Utes will look to snap a four-game losing streak in this Pac-12 pairing to keep their CFP and New Year’s day bowl hopes alive.
Wofford (5-2) at Clemson (8-0)
at 4:00 PM ET
Wofford has won five straight while scoring 49 or more three times during the stretch. Could the Terriers upset Trevor Lawrence and the Tigers in this Week 8 mismatch? When you know what freezes over!
Ole Miss (3-5) at Auburn (6-2)
7:00 PM ET
Make no mistake about it. Despite falling to LSU on Saturday and dropping two of their last three, Auburn almost certainly won’t have any problems getting past a mediocre Ole Miss squad that has dropped two straight and four of five overall.
SMU (8-0) at Memphis (7-1)
at 7:30 PM ET
Both of these nationally-ranked AAC rivals have a lot to play for as they hold on to their New Year’s Day bowl hopes. Memphis has won five straight in this rivalry, but the Tigers fell to a Temple Owls program 30-28 that SMU routed 45-21 in Week 8.
Oregon (7-1) at USC (5-3)
at 8:00 PM ET
USC is playing at home, and they blew the Ducks out of the water at home the last time they met back in 2016. However, this isn’t 2016, and now, the Ducks are the better team in this Pac-12 pairing and the only one with anything of real value to play for as they look to keep their New Year’s Day bowl game and slim CFP hopes alive.
