A few high magnitude games this weekend beginning on Saturday. Yes, once again I am leaving out the face that Harvard is playing on Friday. #1 Kentucky & #2 Syracuse both have conference games but against teams that are 2 games below .500. The first dual-ranked game is between #3 Ohio State & #20 Wisconsin. This is both a ranked game, and a Big Ten conference game.
The other big game is between #4 Missouri & #8 Kansas. Once again, this is a conference match-up and I think it’s going to be real close. I am really tempted to pick Kansas because I think Thomas Robinson is a beast. However, Missouri is home and they have only lost 2 games all season. I just haven’t fully bought into the Mizzou hype yet.
On Sunday, #5 Duke takes on unranked Miami. Miami is 13-7 so they are not a team that will be walked right over. However, I do not see the Blue Devils losing this game. #10 Michigan State is home against rival #22 Michigan in a battle of the Big Ten. Gonna be another close game as always but since State is home, I think they can hang on.
Prediction: Michigan State
