We’re at the midpoint of the 2016 college football season. Many teams have played their way out of contention for the college football playoff.
There are still several big games left in the 2016 season. We decided to predict the 10 games that’ll shape the rest of the college football season.
College Football Predictions
10 – Washington at Washington State (November 25)
This could be Washington’s last hurdle to a spot in the Pac-12 Championship and undefeated season. Mike Leach’s team would love to end that hope.
9 – Auburn at Alabama (November 26)
Bama has been rolling this season. Auburn is looking to get better week by week and in rivalry games, you never know what could happen. The Tide should roll past Auburn again this year and on to the SEC Championship game.
8 – Florida at Florida State (November 26)
The winner of this game really won’t get into consideration for the playoff but the winner boosts their conference with a win. These late season non-conference games can influence the committee.
7 – Michigan at Michigan State (October 29)
Michigan State has nothing left to play for other than to wreck the Wolverines season. The Wolverines want revenge after the last minute loss to Sparty last year. Look for Harbaugh to put points up this year and not let it be decided in the final minutes.
6 – Oklahoma State at Oklahoma (December 3)
Bedlam could be even bigger this year if not for the horrendous miscall that cost Oklahoma State a win against Central Michigan. This one could crown the Big 12 Champ.
5 – Clemson at Florida State (October 29)
Clemson is still on track to make it back to the college football playoff. The ‘Noles will be in the unfamiliar position of playing spoiler. They could still make it to the ACC Championship with a win here so look for this one to go late in the fourth before being decided.
4 – Nebraska at Ohio State (November 5)
Nebraska has flown under the radar this year by playing a weak schedule. This could be a huge game if each remains undefeated.
3 – LSU at Texas A&M (November 24)
LSU can have the biggest impact the rest of the season as they play both Texas A&M and Alabama. The Tigers have looked much better since Ed Orgeron took over. He knows he needs wins in these games to get the interim title removed. Look for LSU to challenge teams the rest of the season.
2 – Alabama at LSU (November 5)
Bama will come in to this game off games against Tennessee and Texas A&M. LSU will be waiting for them to knock off the Tide. Many of the players think Les Miles was fired for his inability to beat Nick Saban. Tiger Stadium will be rocking for this game but the Tide should keep winning.
1 – Michigan at Ohio State (November 26)
This game is far and away the biggest game remaining. Both have been challenged by Wisconsin but won this season. There are potential hurdles for each on their way to this showdown but if each shows up undefeated, the hype for this game will be off the charts!
