This week's best bets

No. 15 Oklahoma vs. Texas at Dallas: The Longhorns just got hammered 50-7 by TCU, and now they face a potent Sooners offense in the Red River Showdown. Charlie Strong better keep this one closer.

Miami (Fla.) at No. 11 Florida State: The Seminoles have a five-game winning streak in this series, and the Hurricanes just lost to Cincinnati. Still, FSU hasn't played up to its lofty ranking.

Navy at No. 6 Notre Dame: Coming off a difficult game at Clemson, the Fighting Irish will try to avoid a trap. The Midshipmen have hung tough against Notre Dame, falling 49-39 last year and 38-14 in 2013.

No. 24 California at No. 10 Utah: The Utes have fared well as the hunter — beating Michigan and annihilating Oregon — but now they're the hunted.
