A couple of games really stand out at me this weekend. First, Navy -22.5 in the big game with Army. Navy is by far the superior team but in this rivalry, a 22.5 favorite seems way too high. Second, OU -12.5 -14 vs K. State. OU is the better team obviously but Wildcats are also playing their best football of the year and should have a home neutral field advantage in KC. OU has struggled with multi dimensional quarterbacks like Roberson. With National Title Game already secure except which jersey color they will be wearing, game might mean more to Snyder and K State. Also, how focused is OU coaching staff with younger Stoops going to Arizona. Last, Bowling Green hosting Miami,OH. They played less than a month ago and BG was handled quite easily. Difference here is home field for BG. Miami will get their best shot this time and I expect an extremely close game. Any thoughts?

Agree on BG/MIA should be a close one and the home field will help BG greatly.
I remember a few years back Navy was a 12 or 13 pt fave over Army and one by plenty. Have to look it up but I recall Navy going in was clearly better all year and proved it in the game. I'll get back to you with the year on that one.
You can rest assured that Bob Stoops will have his team completely focused Saturday and beat this KST team soundly IMO. KST has been a solid team for most of the year but sooner(no pun intended) or later they'll get into 2nd and 3rd and long situations and Roberson will be exposed to this defense and the rout will be on. It's only a matter of who OU is going to play in New Orleans, personally I'm still hoping for Georgia to sneak in the backdoor as I feel they would have the best chance of beating OU. GLTU

Appreciate the feedback Fastfreddy, I'll be waiting to hear back on Navy. In terms of OU, odds are you are right but once in a while you get that itch and I've got it on KState.

I think it was 97 and Navy won 39-7 and it wasn't even that close. I think they were dd fave in the that game but it wasn't 22 I think it was 12 or 13. Perhaps someone on the board here will have that info. Yhe two teams were similar that year compared to this year and would expect the results to be about the same.

I have to disagree with you concerning the OU and Miami games. while home field for Bowling G. should help to make this closer, I still see a win by Miami of at least a touchdown or more. They are simply a better team with better players and coaching.

OU should take care of KS by 2 touchdowns as well. The focus for Stoops right now is national championship trust me. The contracts with Arizona are already signed and alot of the media spots, etc.. concerning the hiring have already been dealt with. It helps both programs, Arizona and Oklahoma, for OU to have a great game against KS and go on to win the Championship.

The first Miami / BG game was close initially with BG missing 2 FG's and turning it over 4 times. Harris played horrible but they moved the ball easily on Miami. Couple of the turnovers were deep in Miami territory and others setup quick scores for the Miami O. I think you have to consider the touchdown at home, in a place where Harris doesn't lose. PLUS - Miami OH already has their bowl bid and plans for Mobile, win or lose.
