NCAA College Football Point Spreads: Week 11 Odds

Ricky Rothstein | Updated Nov 07, 2016


Other than No. 4 Texas A&M being upset by Mississippi State and the Aggies seeing their College Football Playoff chances end, Week 10 was largely chalk around the nation as everyone that was supposed to win pretty much did. Here are five Week 11 games to watch and their Sports Interaction NCAA football odds. Matchups on Saturday unless noted. Rankings from most recent  College Football Playoff Top 25. Certainly A&M will no longer be No. 4 when the new poll is released Tuesday night.

No. 17 Baylor at No. 14 Oklahoma

When: Noon ET

Point spread: Oklahoma -14.5

NCAAF ATS Pick: Sooners

The Sooners remained the only Big 12 team without a conference loss when they won at Iowa State 34-24 last Thursday. Not a particularly impressive effort against a bad team, but OU could have been overlooking the Cyclones a bit. Baker Mayfield threw four TD passes, his FBS-high fourth straight game with at least that many. A few weeks ago, we wondered if the Bears were for real as they were unbeaten but hadn’t played anyone. The answer is: they aren’t. Baylor lost a second straight on Saturday, 62-22 at home to TCU. Oklahoma is 21-3 all-time vs. Baylor but those three losses have come in the past five years. In 2015, the No. 12 Sooners upset the unbeaten No. 6 Bears 44-34 in Waco. Mayfield threw for 270 yards and three scores, with Sterling Shepard, now a New York Giants rookie, catching 14 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns. Samaje Perine rushed for 116 yards and  two scores. He has missed OU’s past three games this year due to a leg injury.

Pittsburgh at No. 2 Clemson

When: 3:30 p.m. ET

Point spread: Clemson -20

NCAAF ATS Pick: Tigers

Clemson played one of its best games of the season Saturday in routing Syracuse 54-0, and the Tigers are now one win from clinching a spot in the ACC Championship Game for the second year in a row. That seems likely here considering Clemson has now won 44 consecutive games against unranked opponents. Tigers star QB Deshaun Watson left in the second half vs. Syracuse with a shoulder injury but the school said it wasn’t serious. Any outside chance Pittsburgh had of winning the ACC Coastal Division was wiped away in Saturday’s 51-28 loss at Miami. Pitt and Clemson haven’t met since the Panthers joined the ACC and have played just once, back in 1977 in the Gator Bowl.

USC at No. 5 Washington

When: 7:30 p.m. ET

Point spread: Washington -8

NCAAF ATS Pick: Huskies

It’s a potential Pac-12 Championship Game preview, especially if Southern Cal wins this one. Southern Cal is streaking and a half game behind Colorado in the Pac-12 South. The Trojans beat Oregon 45-20 in Week 10 for their fifth straight win and Coach Clay Helton appears off the hot seat for now. The Huskies, co-leaders of the Pac-12 North and likely to move to No. 4 in the new CFP Top 25, were in a potential letdown game Saturday vs. Cal but didn’t have one, winning 66-27.  Washington upset No. 17 USC last year in their first meeting since 2012, 17-12 in Los Angeles. Myles Gaskin ran for 134 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown and the Huskies’ defense forced three Trojan turnovers. That was the final game as USC head coach for ex-Washington coach Steve Sarkisian as he was fired a few days later.

No. 3 Michigan at Iowa

When: 8 p.m. ET

Point spread: Michigan -20

NCAAF ATS Pick: Hawkeyes

Iowa is the defending Big Ten West Division champion but isn’t going to repeat there after losing 41-14 at No. 12 Penn State on Saturday. Michigan leads the East Division and clobbered Maryland 59-3 in Week 10. No national title contender has had a more forgiving schedule so far this season than the Wolverines as this will be only their second game outside the state of Michigan. The Hawkeyes and Wolverines haven’t played since 2013.

No. 15 Colorado at Arizona

When: 10 p.m. ET

Point spread: Colorado -15

NCAAF ATS Pick: Wildcats

The Buffs are one of the nation’s biggest surprises as they lead the Pac-12 South. CU will be on extra rest here as it beat UCLA 20-10 last Thursday despite turning the ball over four times and being penalized 12 times for 128 yards. Before this season, Colorado had won a total of five Pac-12 games in the five previous seasons combined. It’s now 5-1 in the conference this year. Arizona is the only Pac-12 team without a conference win as the Wildcats have been devastated by injuries. They were crushed 69-7 at No. 25 Washington State on Saturday. This is CU’s final true road game of the season. Arizona has won the past four meetings in this series but each has gotten closer. Last season, it was 38-31 in Boulder as then-Wildcats backup running back Jared Baker rushed 23 times for 207 yards and two scores. Colorado led 24-17 entering the fourth.
