WEDNESDAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL PICK

(16) Northern Illinois (10 - 0) 31 @ Toledo (7 - 3) 28: Northern Illinois needs to win tonight to clinch the MAC West title. A loss would throw the Huskies into a tie with Ball State and Toledo with one game remaining. All three teams will be heavily favored next week, so this should be a very hard fought game. On paper, Northern Illinois scores more points and gives up less than Toledo. But Toledo's playing at home and they do score enough points to give Northern Illinois a fight. I'm tempted to pick the upset here, but I think the visitors have just enough to stay unbeaten and get a berth in the MAC championship game. However, I wouldn't necessarily count out the Rockets if they can get a turnover or two and an early lead.
