1. Texas will upset Oklahoma this weekend.
Farrell’s take: FACT. The Oklahoma offensive line is bad and the Sooners can’t run the football or protect Spencer Rattler. And the Texas offense is coming alive, so I see this as a high-scoring game with Rattler falling short of leading a fourth-quarter comeback.
2. Ed Orgeron loses his job after this weekend.
Farrell’s take: FICTION. Believe it or not there has been chatter than if Orgeron loses to Kentucky this weekend he could be gone — which is ridiculous. I actually think LSU rallies around its coach and wins this game outright, but even with a loss he won’t be fired midseason.
3. Michigan will remain undefeated this weekend.
Farrell’s take: FACT. The small line in the Michigan–Nebraska game indicates it should be closer than many expect. The Huskers are playing better football all around, but I don’t think this is the week Michigan falls. The Wolverines will lose more than a couple games this season, but the rushing attack will be too much for a solid Nebraska defense and the Wolverines will pull out at squeaker.
