LEIGH’S WEEKLY FIVE #12

LAST WEEK: 4-2 (66.6%) CAREER: 32-23-1 (58%)

Fun slate this weekend.

CFB Week 12

11/16 12noonEST Umass (+41) at Northwestern

Yeah, I am doing it and up yours to anyone who recoils at this play. Northwestern has not scored 40 points in their last 3 games. I would venture to say my alma mater Seaholm Maples could hold the cardiac cats to under 40 points.

Northwestern 35 Umass 3

11/16 3:30EST #4 Georgia (-2.5) at #12 Auburn

The Dawgs’ are too much for a competitive but second tier Auburn squad. Look for the UGA defense to shut Auburn down and Fromm to captain that offense to a victory.

Georgia 24 Auburn 13

11/16 4EST #9 Minnesota (+3) at #20 Iowa

I am fading the books expecting the Golden Gophers to lay down as a fraud a week after their programs biggest win in a decade. I understand Iowa is a well coached and testy team, but this Minnesota team is for real and they will prove it on Saturday. Gophers in a close one.

Minnesota 23 Iowa 20

11/16 7:30EST #10 Oklahoma at #13 Baylor (+11)

I faded the Sooners last week and I will happily do it again this week. Baylor has somehow found a way to stay undefeated this year and Oklahoma is desperate for a style point win over a top team which makes for a good matchup. I think OU hasn’t fully healed from the devastating loss in Manhattan a few weeks ago and Iowa State should have beat them last week in their own barn. Baylor smells blood.

Oklahoma 35 Baylor 32

11/16 7:30EST Louisville (-4) at NC State

I’ll make this short and sweet since ya’ll are probably tired of me riding the Cards. NC State is a catastrophe this year, when they lose, they lose big and I think a much better Louisville team bounces back after a drubbing in Miami last week.

Louisville 37 NC State 21
