College football’s amping up the intensity as bowl games and the national title looms on the horizon. SB Nation’s Easy Call once again combines food, booze and a crystal ball to discuss the upcoming week in college showdowns. Speaking of colossal matchups, #6 Baylor is currently favoured by a field goal at home versus #12 Oklahoma. (Baylor was originally favoured by six.) This Big 12 clash is going to have huge consequences for the College Football Playoff picture.
Did You Know?
- DeAndre Jordan finally made his 2015-16 appearance in Dallas, but it was Dirk Nowitzki that stole the show on Wednesday. Nowitzki provided 31 points and Zaza Pachulia notched a double-double in the Mavs’ 118-108 victory. Blake Griffin sccored 21 points in a losing cause. This ranks as the ninth straight time that Toronto’s beat Philadelphia.
- We’re getting a smidge more information on how Andrew Luck’s doing beyond “gone for a while.” The initial report of two-to-six weeks given by the Colts is being countered by an ESPN report that has Indy’s franchise QB on the shelf for at least a month with a lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle. 40-year-old veteran pivot Matt Hasselbeck will take over the position during Luck’s absence and he’s put in some quality performances as a substitute in 2015. Hasselbeck notched wins over Houston and Jacksonville in his two starts this year. The 4-5 Colts have a bye in Week 10 and will get back to action on November 22 in Atlanta. Oddsmakers list the Colts as a 28/1 bet to win the Super Bowl after opening the season as a 14/1 wager.
