- Collin Wilson uses his updated power ratings to project point spreads for every college football matchup.
- Below you'll find his projected spreads for Week 12, including matchups between Georgia and Auburn, and Minnesota and Iowa.
LSU and Alabama had a good ole fashion slobber knocker in Tuscaloosa, as the Tigers survived the Crimson Tide’s second half blitz. The two SEC powerhouses scored 34 points in the fourth quarter, with six of the final seven drives ending in touchdowns.
Joe Burrow will take a definitive lead in the Heisman Trophy race, while Nick Saban will look to use Mississippi State, Western Carolina and Auburn as a spring board for his team’s College Football Playoff hopes.
In other action, Minnesota bounced Penn State to vault itself to a 9-0 record and a commanding lead in the Big Ten West. The Gophers are an Iowa and Northwestern victory away from getting Ohio State or Penn State in the Big Ten Championship Game.
Expect the College Football Playoff rankings to get a shakeup, with two of the top four taking a loss. The key to Tuesday nights ranking after Week 11 play will be Alabama’s spot as it relates to Oregon, Utah and Oklahoma. Let the debate on the merits of a one-loss SEC at-large vs. a one-loss conference champion begin.
The Action Network power ratings have been adjusted, as Week 12 pits Georgia-Auburn and Oklahoma-Baylor as the premier games of the week.
We’re projecting every Week 12 point spread below in anticipation of Sunday openers.
