Can LSU, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State and Stanford Stay Unbeaten?


There are only ten undefeated teams left in college football. Four of those squads — Stanford, Oklahoma State, LSU and Wisconsin — will face challenging upset bids on Saturday. The Cardinal host Washington, as Huskies quarterback Keith Price has thrown for at least three touchdowns in every game this season. LSU will entertain Auburn without suspended stars Tyrann Mathieu and Spencer Ware. Wisconsin travels to Michigan State, where the Spartans just defeated instate rival Michigan. Oklahoma State heads to Missouri, and the Tigers have won 10 in a row at home in Columbia.

Best shot to beat an unbeaten: Washington, Auburn, Michigan State or Missouri?

I think Washington has a good chance to knock off Stanford on Saturday. Sure, the Cardinal is undefeated, but their schedule hasn’t exactly been the most difficult in college football. Stanford’s defense has held up well, despite the loss of All-American linebacker Shayne Skov, but Washington will provide a difficult test. The Huskies are struggling on defense, which could hinder their upset chances. However, Washington has the firepower on offense with quarterback Keith Price, running back Chris Polk and receiver Jermaine Kearse. Also, the Huskies are hungry for a marquee win under coach Steve Sarkisian. I am picking Stanford to win, but think this one is much, much closer than some may expect.
