Top 10 College Football Rivalry Games In 2015Josh Bailey
The 2015 College Football season is within sight. I surveyed the schedule and college football betting odds. Below are the top 10 College Football rivalry games to bet this season.
Bet These College Football Rivalry Games In 2015
Alabama vs Wisconsin – Sept. 5
It appears that Alabama will have the upper hand in this contest since its defensive line will be tough with A’Shawn Robinson, Jarran Reed and Jonathan Allen all back. Wisconsin’s quarterback, Joel Stave, may not get the time needed from his offensive line in order to exploit Alabama’s secondary. The Crimson Tide is the pick. Click here for an in-depth look.
Auburn at LSU – Sept. 19
Some are predicting Auburn gets into the College Football Playoffs this season. The Tigers return their Top 3 tacklers on defense. Former Florida D-coordinator Will Muschamp takes the reins for the D. Auburn’s offense should be explosive, but the LSU Tigers get Auburn in Death Valley in this matchup. It should be awesome!
Stanford at USC – Sept. 19
With Marcus Mariota graduating from Oregon last season, the Pac 12 is up for grabs this season. An early battle between USC and Stanford could determine which team gets the upper hand in the conference. This game almost always comes down to the final drive.
USC at Notre Dame – Oct. 17
One of the great classic rivalries of all time resumes on Oct. 17. Brian Kelly’s Notre Dame squad should have one of the most explosive offenses in the nation with QB Malik Zaire at the controls. Zaire faces a stout USC defense.
Oregon at Arizona State – Oct. 29
Two more teams with a shot at winning the Pac 12 this season battle it out in Tempe on Oct. 29. The key question is whether or not Oregon’s offense without Mariota will be able to get past one of the most aggressive defenses in the nation at ASU.
LSU at Alabama – Nov. 7
Once again, the LSU Tigers have questions at quarterback. They’re going to need excellent quarterback play to upset Alabama in this contest since the only weakness on ‘Bama’s D might be the secondary. It might be the secondary. LSU won’t get any yards on the ground. But, the Tigers from Baton Rouge always play the Tide tough. Don’t be surprised if this ends up as one of those 14 to 13 or 10 to 9 LSU vs Alabama battles.
Florida State at Clemson – Nov. 7
The guess is that by the time this game comes around former Notre Dame QB star Everett Golson will be the man under center for the Seminoles. Golson will have some weapons on offense, but Clemson’s strength on D will be the secondary this season. Is this the year that Clemson upsets Florida State?
Ohio State vs Michigan State – Nov. 21
It doesn’t matter which quarterback will start for the Buckeyes in the biggest matchup of the year in the Big Ten. Braxton Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones are all good enough to break down the vaunted Michigan State defense. If the Spartans could pull off the upset, they should be on their way to a Big Ten title.
Baylor at TCU – Nov. 27
Baylor returns all four starters in their secondary. That could be the difference since both teams figure to have excellent offenses again. This game should decide the Big 12 title since because there are only 10 teams in the Big 12, the conference can’t put on a championship game.
Alabama vs Auburn – Nov. 28
The Iron Bowl might have even more significance this season than it ever has. If both Auburn and Alabama are undefeated going into the Iron Bowl, the winner, no doubt, will stamp its ticket to the College Football Playoffs. Even the loser could get in if both are that much more impressive than some of the other contenders.
