2009 Week 12 College Football Preview

Here is a preview of a few selected games for this week.  Last weeks highlighted games again went 3-2 against the spread.  In any case, here are some of the interesting games of the weekend.  Rankings listed are from my computer rankings.

Connecticut visits Notre Dame as a 6 point underdog but the computer nearly picks the upset having Notre Dame by only 0.8.  Their losses have all been very close so even if they lose, there is a good chance it will be by less than the 6 point line.

Texas Tech hosts Oklahoma as a 7 point underdog but the computer has OU by only 1.7.  It isn't every day that two 6-4 teams from the same conference play and the home team is a 7 point dog.

Arizona hosts Oregon in a game with Pac-10 implications and faces an uphill battle as a 6 point underdog.  Unfortunately for them, the computer agrees but only as a 3.1 dog.

In another Pac-10 game with championship implications, Stanford hosts Cal but is a 7 point favorite, and the computer says that isn't enough picking them by 8.7.

And in the annual rivalry, Michigan hosts Ohio State as a 12.5 point underdog and the computer nearly agrees having the margin 12 points.
