College football crunch time on 2BET2

Updated: November 16, 2012

Considering how unpredictable college football can be, here is a breakdown and analysis of 2Bet2´s predictions for Week 12 which just may end
up being an entertaining weekend full of surprises.

Stanford at Oregon

Oregon knows that it can’t take any opponent for granted at this point in the season, especially a team like Stanford, which currently has
the best run defence in the nation.

The Cardinal are allowing just 58 yards on the ground per game. They have a strong defensive front seven, led by linebackers Chase Thomas and
Shayne Skov, that could cause plenty of problems for Oregon’s three-headed backfield.

The player who holds the real key to the outcome of this game is Stanford QB Kevin Hogan.

Hogan is making just his second career start in one of the most hostile environments in college football, Autzen Stadium. But the freshman
signal-caller displayed tremendous poise last week, leading the Cardinal to a victory over Oregon State.

If Hogan can take advantage of a banged-up Oregon defence, and if Skov, Thomas and crew can contain Oregon’s rushing attack, watch out,
because we may see another big upset rock the BCS championship race. However, asking a freshman quarterback to go on the road and beat the
No. 1-ranked team in the nation in just his second career start is likely asking just a bit too much.

2Bet2 Prediction: Oregon 36 win
2Bet2 Odds: Stanford +800        Oregon -149

Ohio State at Wisconsin

Ohio State is 10-0 and searching for a perfect season to build momentum for next year’s national championship run. However, the Buckeyes may
end up finally getting taken down in Madison on Saturday.

Wisconsin has been one of the most inconsistent teams in the country this season. Still, if the Badgers play like they’re capable of at home,
they should be able to avenge last year’s stunning last-second loss in Columbus.

The defence, led by linebackers Chris Borland and Mike Taylor, should be able to keep QB Braxton Miller contained. Running backs Montee Ball
and James White should be able to do consistent damage to an Ohio State defensive front seven that has had to deal with major linebacker
issues in recent weeks.

2Bet2 Prediction: Wisconsin win
2Bet2 Odds: Ohio State +114  Wisconsin -137

Oklahoma at West Virginia

Following a 5-0 start to the season, West Virginia has lost four straight games against Big 12 opponents, including three embarrassing
blowouts. The Mountaineers defence has looked terrible, and QB Geno Smith hasn’t looked like the same type of star signal-caller that we saw
in September.

Dana Holgorsen’s squad will get a chance to make up for a disastrous four-game stretch when it steps out on the field with Oklahoma in
Morgantown on Saturday night.

The Sooners have the overall talent advantage on both sides of the ball. However, if Smith and his dangerous wide receiver duo of Tavon
Austin and Stedman Bailey are clicking, the Mountaineers will have a good shot to pull off the upset at home and pick up a much-needed win.

Prediction: West Virginia win
2Bet2 Odds: Oklahoma -400 West Virginia +317


This game will likely decide the winner of the Pac-12 South division. USC comes into this game looking to salvage its frustrating season,
while UCLA comes into it looking to make a statement that it’s ready to finally beat its crosstown rival.

The Trojans have beaten the Bruins 12 of the last 13 times, but first-year head coach Jim Mora may have a few tricks up his sleeve for this

QB Brett Hundley and RB Jonathan Franklin form one of the most dangerous offensive duos in the country, and they should do some major damage
against USC’s mediocre defence.

Prediction: UCLA win
2Bet2 Odds :USC -164  UCLA +140

Texas Tech at Oklahoma State

This game has all the ingredients to become a high-scoring offensive shootout.

Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are averaging a combined 82 points per game, and they each have an explosive passing attack.

Ultimately, this game could come down to which team has the ball last.

Prediction: Oklahoma State win
2Bet2 Odds: Texas Tech +300  Oklahoma State -367
