Travis Dye suffered a season-ending injury in the first half of USC’s game against Colorado and that sets the tone for our Saturday. Will Levis and Kentucky were upset with Vandy, TCU Completely knocked out Bijan Robinson and we went 0-5 for the first time in the history of this column.
But let’s not let that get us down. Right after that again.

The eleventh week selection
Pick #1: Ole Miss RB Quinshon Judkins OVER 115.5 rushing yards
Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin, who is reportedly considering an extension to stay at Ole Miss, will exorcise some of the demons left over from last week’s loss to Alabama. Expect Judkins to get the ball early and often while Kiffin establishes the ground game and tries to take the pressure off QB Jaxson Dart.
Pick #2: Arkansas RB “Rocket” Sanders OVER 97.5 rushing yards
Expect Arkansas to run straight back at Ole Miss. No defense is great, especially against the run, and to have a number below 100 is frankly surprising. Don’t think about it.
Pick #3: Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt OVER 80.5 receiving yards
Hyatt has averaged 145.6 yards per game in their last five games, and South Carolina won’t put up much resistance as you’d think.
Pick #4: Florida QB Anthony Richardson OVER 2.5 combined touchdowns
Yes, Vanderbilt beat Kentucky last week, but that doesn’t suddenly mean they’re a good team. They are 130th (of 131 FBS teams) in rush defense and allow over 293.5 YPG. Richardson will get his on the ground and any results in the air count towards our magic number of three.
Pick #5: Purdue QB Aidan O’Connell OVER 300.5 passing yards
Purdue is 18th in the country in passing at over 290 yards per game. O’Connell is coming off three straight games with 320+ yards (Wisconsin, Nebraska, Marquette) and Northwestern isn’t much better. They will throw early and often.
Tip #6: Utah QB Cameron rises over 1.5 passing touchdowns
Yes, a 6th choice! Oregon’s defense is 77th in scoring (and 127th in passing yards), while Utah’s is 12th in the country at 39.3 yards per game. Even if Bo Nix isn’t playing, expect a higher score as two turbocharged offenses collide in Eugene. Now that a CFP berth is off the table, how are Oregon handling the most physical team they’ve faced since Georgia in Week One?
Bet: Ole Miss RB Quinshon Judkins OVER 115.5 rushing yards, Arkansas RB “Rocket” Sanders OVER 97.5 rushing yards, Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt OVER 80.5 receiving yards, Florida QB Anthony Richardson OVER 2.5 combined touchdowns, Purdue QB Aidan O’Connell OVER 300.5 passing yards, Utah QB Cameron goes up over 1.5 passing touchdowns
Flex Play: 6 correct out of 6 = 25x, 5 correct = 2x, 4 correct = 0.4x
The biggest concerns here are that Purdue won’t need to air it to beat Northwestern and one of the Ole Miss/Arky teams not going on offense, but there’s a good chance that will bring some green. Feel good on the slate.
Have fun with the games.
