Conference games are the norm this week in college football, and there are several key matchups on the GridCard. Nebraska visits the Big House in Ann Arbor, and MSU travels to Bloomington to take on the Hoosiers. The Big 10 West champion could very well be determined Saturday night when Wisconsin--upset last week by BYU--goes to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes. Purdue hosts the BC Eagles from the ACC in a non-conference game.
The GridCard features four Big 12 games, and they should all be competitive: Kansas @ Baylor, KState @ West Virginia, TCU @ Texas, and Texas Tech @ Oklahoma State. SEC games include Texas A&M @ Alabama, Florida @ Tennessee, and Mississippi State @ Kentucky. In ACC action, Clemson plays at Georgia Tech and Wake Forest takes on FBS Independent Notre Dame in Winston-Salem.
The PAC 12 provides the prime time ABC matchup--Stanford @ Oregon--the winner surviving to challenge Washington for the the title. The Huskies are home against ASU in the Second Game on the GridCard which features fourteen NFL bets, including Bears @ Cardinals, Steelers @ Bucs, and a huge Thursday night clash between the Vikings and the Rams--an early season meeting which could be reprised come playoff time.
On Sunday night, the Patriots are at Ford Field to face the Lions. The Patriots will be trying to avoid a two-game losing streak, and Detroit will be trying to improve their 2019 NFL Draft position.
