Forecaster Frank's College Six Picks
Kansas State 30 TCU 27
TCU has been flying high ever since their win over Oklahoma State. With Oklahoma's stunning loss to Iowa State last week, the Horned Frogs are now at the front of the pack in the Big XII, which has been a dangerous position in 2017. In their win over West Virginia last week, TCU showed a vulnerability. Look for Alex Delton in his first start to have a big game and lead the Wildcats to an upset win at home.

Auburn 20 LSU 14
After their win in the Swamp last week, LSU has new life as they host #10 Auburn. The Bayou Bengals have struggled at home this year, losing their homecoming game to Troy. Auburn has a chance to make some noise in the SEC West, while LSU is lacking severely on offense. Defensively they could keep the game close, but in the end, without a proven quarterback to make the big play, it's hard to see them beating Auburn.
Miami 27 Georgia Tech 13
Miami is on the verge the Top Ten, after ending their seven-game losing streak against Florida State. During the win Malik Rosier showed an incredible ability to make clutch passes, taking the Hurricanes down the field to win the game after the Seminoles took the lead. Georgia Tech has a strong defense that could give Miami problems, but I like Rosier to again make the big play as Miami stays unbeaten.
Oklahoma 41 Texas 20
Coming off a stunning loss at home, Oklahoma desperately needs to bounce back as they face Texas in the Red River Rivalry. Every team deserves a bad week, and the Sooners despite their loss should be considered one of the top teams in the nation, though Baker Mayfield's Heisman hopes took a big a hit. Look for Mayfield to go out and have a big game as Oklahoma continues their recent mastery over the Longhorns.
Minnesota 23 Michigan State 10
After their win in a downpour in Ann Arbor, Michigan State entered the Top 25. However, I am not convinced the Spartans as good as their 4-1 record. The Spartans have taken advantage of a disheartened Iowa team and a water longed Michigan team to win their last two games. This week Minnesota has nothing impede them and are well in line as a home dog to bite down hard on Sparty.
Stanford 37 Oregon 24
Over the past decade, Oregon and Stanford have developed into one of the best rivalries in the Pac-12 as they two have constantly battled for supremacy in the North Division. The Cardinals crawled back into the Top 25 thanks to their strong win on the road against Utah. Look for them to continue the momentum as the return home to roast the Ducks.
