2010 College Football Picks Week 11: In week eleven of the NCAA college football picks season, the University of Pittsburgh (5-3) and the University of Connecticut (4-4) face-off in a key Big East college football picks match-up. Vegas odds makers have placed the Panthers as -5 1/2 point college football odds favorites on the road.
After a rough non-conference schedule that included a 31-3 college football picks loss at home, Pitt is 3-0 in the Big East and shooting for their first conference title since 2004. The Panthers have struggled some offensively but have come-on in recent weeks. First-year quarterback Tino Sunseri now has 12 touchdown passes, including 4 TDs to big-play receiver Jonathan Baldwin. Dion Lewis, after struggling in the early part of the college football picks season, has run for 479 yards while Ray Graham has been a dynamic runner with 685 yards and a 7.3 average yards per rush. The Panthers’ defense has been a constant, though, and is ranked 20th in the nation in points allowed.
The Huskies have struggled most of the college football picks season as well, but, last game, they got a big overtime win against West Virginia 16-13. In that game, Connecticut took advantage of 4 turnovers and over 100 yards rushing from Jordan Todman, who is their leading runner with nearly 1,000 yards. UConn has really struggled in the passing game, ranking 102nd in the nation. The Huskies have also played well defensively at times this college football picks season, but have been out-played in games against better teams.
This is the type of college football picks match-up the Panthers usually have lost in years past, but if Pitt has BCS dreams, they’ll need to win in Connecticut. Look for Pitt to beat UConn on the road and beat the Vegas spread.
