Matchups of ranked teams in the ACC, Big Ten, and Big-12 dot the schedule to supplement a light day in the Pac-12.

#3 Florida State (-21) vs #7 Miami, 5:00 Pacific ABC: Florida State might be the best team in the country, and Miami is not nearly as good as their record. Unless Stephen Morris suddenly became a much more accurate passer than he's been for his entire career, Miami doesn't have much of a shot in this one. Florida State rolls.

#15 Texas Tech (+2.5) vs #18 Oklahoma State, 4:00 Pacific, FOX: Both of these teams got where they are by playing really weak schedules, though Texas Tech's has been a little bit better. Oklahoma State's offense hasn't been what it has in years past, and I really like what Kliff Kingsbury is doing with the Red Raiders.

#21 Michigan (+3.5) @ #22 Michigan State 12:30 Pacific, ABC: Both of these teams are incomplete and terribly flawed, and I think Michigan is the less flawed of the two. MSU's defense is easily the best unit either team has, but their offense is cover-your-eyes-bad, and for that reason I like Michigan. They'll be able to do enough to keep it close, and probably win the game.
