Table Seven Top 6, College Football Week 11

Um, yes, it is week 11.  I can’t believe how fast these weeks are going, but here we are.  There are two big time matchups this weekend, Saturday, November 9th so I will not keep you waiting.  It’s College Football week 11, and this is the Table Seven Top 6.

  1. (11)Baylor at TCU- TCU is home this weekend, and they play host to an undefeated (8-0) Baylor team that’s 3-0 on the road, and in first place in the Big 12 ahead of Oklahoma.  Currently, TCU is 4-4 overall, so they’ll be looking to break .500 with a win this week, and it might be possible.  The Horned Frogs are underdogs at home, but not by much, which tells me a lot of people think they’re much better than their 4-4 record would lead you to believe.
  2. (5)Penn State at (13)Minnesota- Minnesota is 8-0 and in first place in the Big 10 West.  Penn State is 8-0, and they’re neck and neck with Ohio State in the East.  Penn State’s defense is ranked 9th overall, and they’re second in the Nation against the pass, but that pass defense will surely be tested this weekend.  Minnesota’s Rashod Bateman, (626 yards, 6 touchdowns) and Tyler Johnsons (626 yards, 7 touchdowns) are two very good receivers.
  3. (20)Kansas State at Texas- The 5-3 Longhorns are favorites at home this weekend, but K-State is red hot.  The Wildcats are 6-2 overall, and finally, they’re back in the Top 25.  First it was Oklahoma, and then it was Kansas.  If the old saying that everything comes in 3’s holds true, Texas will fall next.
  4. (1)LSU at (2)Alabama- Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better than Penn State and Minnesota, number one and number two in the country showed up.  This will be another matchup of undefeated 8-0 teams, but not only that, we’ll get to see two of the best quarterbacks in college football right now compete.  LSU’s Joe Burrow (2,805 yards, 30 touchdowns) is almost completing 80% of his passes, and Tua Tagovailoa (2,166 yards, 27 touchdowns) has only thrown two interceptions this entire season. 
  5. (18)Iowa at (16)Wisconsin- This is another big time Big 10 game this weekend.  The Badgers are home and look to control this game on the ground with Jonathan Taylor who is now over 1,000 yards rushing.  The Hawkeyes have been playing tremendous defense all season though, and currently, they’re 8th against the run.  Expect them to put the pressure on Wisconsin’s QB Jack Coan, and attempt to make the Badgers one-dimensional.  Jack Coan is very consistent, and despite not having some of the numbers a Joe Burrow has, he’s capable of winning this game for Wisconsin if his number is called.
  6. Iowa State at (9)Oklahoma- Kickoff is scheduled for 8 o’clock Saturday night, and Oklahoma is a two touchdown favorite at home in Norman.  Remember, Iowa State plays their best football when they’re not ranked in the Top 25.  Not many people know about Cyclone QB Brock Purdy (2,567 yards, 15 touchdowns), but maybe they will after this game. 

Thank you for checking in this morning.  Don’t forget to come back and visit us this afternoon at 3 o’clock for the Feature Game Analysis.  Right now, we are 4-4-1 versus the spread.  See y’all later!
