My bold predictions had arguably the best performance of the season last week, as LSU did indeed give Alabama all it could handle, USC-Oregon was the highest-scoring game of the weekend, and East Carolina beat Houston to move my toss-up game record to 8-2.
Here are this week's bold predictions.
1. Oregon State will upset Stanford on the road
According to Las Vegas, the Oregon State Beavers are a 4.5-point underdog at the Stanford Cardinal this week. The 7-1 Beavers have been one of the biggest surprises so far this season, as their only blemish was a road loss to Washington in which they held a 427-to-293-yard advantage but were done in by four costly interceptions. This was the same Washington team that also beat Stanford earlier this year and had a 313-to-238-yard edge over the Cardinal.
