The 2021 Rose Bowl Game Presented by Capital One Venture X between the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes and the No. 11 Utah Utes was simply wild.
LOUISIANA (-12) over Georgia State
The Ragin’ Cajuns are back in the rankings — in the AP Poll, at least — after winning seven straight games. The Sun Belt leader has struggled as a big favorite this season, but has been a different team at home, where it has won by an average of more than 23 points per game.
TEXAS A&M (-4) over Auburn
Bo Nix has been better of late, but the Auburn quarterback — who was held to 144 yards passing in last year’s meeting — will return to maddening form against the SEC’s second-best defense and 100,000 or so of its closest friends.
Baylor (-7) over TCU
A bizarre game begins without ex-TCU coach Gary Patterson on the sideline for the first time in two decades, but in front of the stadium in statue form.
Wisconsin (-13.5) over RUTGERS
During their four-game win streak, the Badgers are giving up 8.5 points per game. Rutgers, which is averaging 12 points per game in Big Ten play, may never make it to the red zone.
ALABAMA (-28.5) over Lsu
Last year, DeVonta Smith seized the Heisman Trophy by recording 219 receiving yards and three touchdowns by halftime of a 55-17 win over LSU.
MICHIGAN (-20.5) over Indiana
Despite their collapse at Michigan State, the Wolverines are still in control of their season. The Hoosiers (2-6) — and their freshman quarterback, Donaven McCulley, who is making his second start — will make it easy to bounce back. Even Jim Harbaugh can’t mess this one up, I think.
OKLAHOMA (-4) over Iowa State
After replacing Caleb Williams with former starter Spencer Rattler during the Sooners’ first loss of the season, Lincoln Riley confirmed he will put the star freshman back under center. He’s not overreacting (again). Neither should you.
ALABAMA (-20.5) over Arkansas
The Crimson Tide aren’t as dangerous as their predecessors, but the nation’s second-best team is the only one boasting top-10 units on both sides of the ball. Alabama’s shaky showing against LSU in its most recent home game is now a gift. The Tide haven’t allowed another program to stay within two possessions of them in Tuscaloosa since 2015.
CINCINNATI (-11.5) over Smu
The Bearcats are uncomfortable as Goliath. They have struggled carrying unusually large expectations, blowing four consecutive covers against some of the AAC’s worst teams. When the competition improves, Cincy will, too (see: the win at Notre Dame).
Michigan (-14.5) over MARYLAND
Maryland hasn’t stayed within two touchdowns of a ranked team in the Big Ten in three years and has lost by at least 21 points in its past five meetings with Jim Harbaugh. Fortunately, the Terps won’t be embarrassed in front of too many of their fans.
PITTSBURGH (-14.5) over Virginia
If Brennan Armstrong (ribs) doesn’t play, the Cavaliers may not exceed the three points they scored without him in last week’s blowout loss to Notre Dame.
Baylor (-1) over KANSAS STATE
The Wildcats have won four straight games, all against teams with losing records in the Big 12. That was preceded by three straight losses, all against teams with winning records. I’m sure that is all just a coincidence.
Oklahoma State (-10.5) over TEXAS TECH
You ride her until she bucks you or you don’t ride at all. The Cowboys keep coming through and have only looked stronger since I touted them as a playoff sleeper a few weeks back. This week, the nation’s third-ranked defense gets matched up with a quarterback (Donovan Smith) making his second career start.
When Texas Has the Ball
Running back Bijan Robinson entered the season as a Heisman Trophy contender and became a Doak Walker Award semifinalist as a sophomore.
When West Virginia Has the Ball
The West Virginia offense has shown promise at times in 2021. The best examples came in back-to-back wins over TCU and Iowa State in which the unit averaged 489.5 total yards and 6.71 yards per play.
The Mountaineers haven’t been nearly as stingy on defense in 2021 as the unit was last year, but West Virginia still has an edge over Texas in most defensive categories.
