ORLANDO - The unpredictability of college football allows for a lot of enjoyment with attempting to preview and project the outcomes of college football games. This week’s slate of games holds the usual mismatches, but conference play also begins for several teams.

That’s why this weekend’s games will be more intriguing than usual. Here’s a podcast previewing Texas A&M at Arkansas, Missouri at Boston College, LSU at Mississippi State, and Clemson at North Carolina State.

For the rest of the predictions, here’s a look at a bevvy of college football games that will be played this upcoming Saturday, with some commentary about a handful of contests.

Georgia 55 Vanderbilt 6

It’s going to be a long year in Nashville, Tenn., and the Georgia Bulldogs are on a mission to reach the college football playoffs to begin with. This will be ugly from the outset, as the Bulldogs roll.

Wisconsin 24 Notre Dame 21

Look for Wisconsin’s defense to really slow down Notre Dame’s rushing attack, and the Irish will not be able to consistently move the football, especially when approaching the red zone.

Texas 38 Texas Tech 34

The Longhorns need to find some semblance of consistency at quarterback, and the Longhorns will be able to do that against a mediocre Red Raiders defensive unit. Texas outlasts Texas Tech in a barn burner.

Florida 41 Tennessee 14

It’s been a long few years for the Volunteers, and Saturday will be a disaster at the Swamp in Gainesville, Fla. The Florida defensive front seven will make life miserable for the Tennessee rushing attack, and there just are not enough playmakers on offense to overcome being a one-dimensional offense.

Michigan State 31 Nebraska 21

The Cornhuskers are improved, but can they really stop big-time the Spartans star running back Kenneth Walker III, who leads the nation with 493 rushing yards and averages 8.6 yards per carry? That's a difficult task, and the game is in East Lansing, Mich. Michigan State survives a good effort from Nebraska.

Walker helped the Spartans smash the Hurricanes on the road. Now he will go against a Nebraska team attempting to find its itself. Look for a big game from Walker this weekend.
