College football Week 7 picks: Notre Dame will dominate USC

Week 7 of the college football season features plenty of compelling matchups, but which teams are poised for upsets? Here are this weekend's picks and predictions:

–Virginia at Miami: Virginia 30-24

If the Cavaliers want to take their first ACC Coastal crown, this is a must-win game.

–Memphis at Temple: Temple 35-31

The Owls further muddy up the "Group of Five" competition for the New Year's Six bowl berth.

–Mississippi State at Tennessee: Tennessee 21-20

Tennessee will get a desperately needed win at home thanks to freshman quarterback Brian Maurer.

–Oklahoma vs. Texas: Oklahoma 52-38

The Sooners are the crisper team at this point in the season. Oh, and they have Jalen Hurts.

–Washington State at Arizona State: Washington State 35-28

In Pac-12 play, it always seems the better-ranked team is due to lose.

–USC at Notre Dame: Notre Dame 31-17

The Fighting Irish pass rush will eat up and spit out USC's offensive line.

–Penn State at Iowa: Penn State 20-13

Iowa's offense mustered just a field goal at Michigan, and Penn State's defense is dominant.

–Florida at Louisiana State: LSU 35-17

The Gators won't be able to score enough to keep up with Joe Burrow and the Tigers.

–Washington at Arizona: Washington 34-24

The Huskies avoid a third Pac-12 loss and stay alive in the North Division.

–Nebraska at Minnesota: Minnesota 30-22

Is this the year the Gophers challenge for the Big Ten West? The dream lives on.

Last week: 4-6. Season: 38-22.
