Fithian’s Fab Five

Michigan State’s seen Denard Robinson & Russell Wilson in consecutive weeks.  That will help a good MSU defense against Taylor Martinez.

Big road win paving the way to the Big Ten Title game in Indy.

Michigan State 24  Nebraska 20

Michigan is a lot better on defense this year under Greg Mattison. The offense looks like it has about the same effectiveness as last year. That leaves me picking UM to win on Saturday but the 13 1/2 points looks like too many to me.

Michigan 31 Purdue 24

Upset special of the week.

With no bowl game to play for Matt Barkley & USC  need  this game on the national stage for a lot of reasons. This is the Trojans Rose Bowl.  USC puts up a good fight but in the end Andrew Luck proves why he’s going No.1 this year.

Stanford 38 USC 35

Pro picks

I’m feeling a big game for Nate Burleson. Lions defense too much for Tim Tebow.  Broncos offense has been missing all year long.

Detroit 28 Denver 23

Pitt 20 NE 17
