The college football season rolls on this weekend with some fantastic Week 11 match ups, including in-state rivals Oklahoma State and Oklahoma going at it.

As we always expect, every week brings its own list of upsets.

Where will the upsets be this week?

Caddies Paul Tesori, Joe Skovron, Matt Minister and Ryan Rue have done their homework and here is how they see five key games playing out…

Oklahoma State at Oklahoma (7)
Spread: Oklahoma -18

Tesori’s Pick: OSU
Why: OSU showed they can play by their upset win two weeks ago. Eighteen is too much in a rivalry game like this one.

Skovron’s Pick: OSU
Why: This is a tough one. Oklahoma is still in the hunt for the playoff and it’s been a down year for the Pokes. This is a lot of points in a rivalry game, but the spread has moved to 20.5 at this point so there is value on Oklahoma. Hard for me to work for a Cowboy and hope for them to lose by more than 18 so I’m going with the Pokes.

Minister’s Pick: Oklahoma
Why: Oklahoma. I expect them to put up a statement type win to try and get in the running for the playoffs.

Rue’s Pick: OSU
Why: Too many points for me. Going with the Pokes here.

Oregon at Utah (15)
Spread: Utah -3

Tesori’s Pick: Oregon
Why: I’m 2-2 on picking the away team with the spread. Oregon is still a team with talent even though they aren’t ranked.

Skovron’s Pick: Utah
Why: Haven’t really watched Utah play this year but the sharps have moved this line to 4.5 and that’s good enough for me.

Minister’s Pick: Utah
Why: Utah. I’m not sure why the ranked team isn’t giving more points at home. Oregon hasn’t traveled well lately.

Rue’s Pick: Utah
Why: Utah at home should be tough. If this was at Oregon, my pick would be different.

Auburn at Georgia (6)
Spread: Georgia -14

Tesori’s Pick: Georgia
Why: I’ve been high on the Bulldogs all year. They are a playoff caliber team that will play like it at home.

Skovron’s Pick: Auburn
Why: Georgia is obviously a better team, but I’ll take two TDs and the Tigers here.

Minister’s Pick: Georgia
Why: Go Dawgs!

Rue’s Pick: Georgia
Why: Big SEC game here. Auburn is playing better ball now, but Georgia needs to make a statement if they want to get in the top 4.

Texas (17) at Texas Tech
Spread: Texas -1.5

Tesori’s Pick: Texas
Why: Even though the Longhorns lost, they made me a believer last week. They will win and cover at home.

Skovron’s Pick: Texas
Why: Both teams coming off tough losses but I just think Texas is a better team and can get it done on the road.

Minister’s Pick: Texas
Why: Texas. It looks like Herman finally has things going for Texas.

Rue’s Pick: Texas Tech
Why: I haven’t been too impressed with Texas all year. I think the Red Raiders are going to take care of business today at home.

Clemson (2) at Boston College (22)
Spread: Clemson -20.5

Tesori’s Pick: Boston College
Why: I’m going keep picking against the big wigs.  Three touchdowns is just too many on the road against a solid and ranked Boston College team.

Skovron’s Pick: Clemson
Why: Both teams are playing well right now, but Clemson has run over teams the last few weeks. I’ve been high on Clemson all year and I think they keep rolling.

Minister’s Pick: Boston College
Why: BC with the points. I don’t think they can win but look for them to give the Tigers a game.

Rue’s Pick: Boston College
Why: Too many points for Clemson. I know they put up some points last week and covered easily but, on the road, up north, I don’t see them covering.
