#12 LSU 27 vs #20 TCU 17
TCU is looking to play multiple quarterbacks. Watching Purdue play multiple quarterbacks the last few seasons has shown that this does not work. Also, LSU is a strong SEC team and will win the battle at the line.
#5 Georgia 31 @ #8 Clemson 34
I like Boyd and Murray at QB. I like the Death Valley crowd however to help propel the Tigers in a great opening week game. Murray makes one critical mistake in a 31 all game in the final minutes that leads to a Clemson game-winning FG.
Upset: Rice 29 @ #7 Texas A&M 28
The suspension of and controversy surrounding Manziel has been a distraction to the Aggies and it shows. Rice is full of experience returning nearly the entire starting lineup that ended 2012 with a bang. The Owls aren't intimidated by A&M and shock the fans at Kyle Field with a late 2-point conversion.
Purdue 21 @ Cincinnati 27
I like Hazell and want to believe that he can have a Tiller like first season, but I don't think the talent is there. Henry struggles some throwing the ball, disproving offseason reports of improved passing skills. The Boilers may get better during the season but it starts off with an L in Cinci.
