Sometimes, we like to poke fun at ourselves for betting the worst games on the board.
Yeah, it’s going to be one of those weeks again, starting with none other than Northwestern.
Our experts were hard at work all week compiling their college football best bets, and each boiled down a stellar card to just one play. Unfortunately, none of them came up with anything on Alabama-LSU or Penn State-Minnesota.
Without further adieu, here are our staff’s favorite college football picks for Week 11.

Purdue is down to fourth-string, walk-on quarterback in windy conditions in Evanston. That’s not good against a Northwestern defense I still have as a top 20 unit, especially considering Purdue can’t run the ball at all (second worst in nation in yards per rush ahead of only Akron).
The Northwestern offense is beyond ugly but can score enough on this Purdue defense to get it done.
Trust in the best unit on the field: Northwestern’s defense.
