Virginia Cavaliers at Virginia Tech Hokies (-13)

ATS pick: Virginia

Duke will claim the ACC Coastal Division if the Devils beat North Carolina on Saturday. If Carolina wins, Virginia Tech is next in line, and would take the Coastal with a win at Virginia later that afternoon. Duke kicks off at noon ET, while the battle for the Commonwealth Cup starts at 3:30. Do not be caught laying points with Virginia Tech if Duke wraps up the division by beating the Tar Heels.

Score: Virginia Tech 21, Virginia 13

No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies at No. 5 Missouri Tigers
Saturday at 7:45 p.m. ET, ESPN

Missouri actually won the last three games of this series when the teams were Big 12 foes, but last year Texas A&M scored touchdowns on its first six possessions and cruised to a 59-29 win over a Tigers team without quarterback James Franklin.
Last week Franklin made his return to the starting lineup after dealing with a midseason injury, and the Tigers beat Ole Miss to move to 10-1. They are now one win away from clinching an SEC championship game berth. The Tigers are arguably one blown 17-point fourth-quarter lead away from being the most complete team in the country outside of Alabama and Florida State. They have great balance on offense, averaging 238 rushing yards per game and 254 yards per game passing.

The Aggies come in beaten, battered and bruised from last week's 34-10 loss to LSU, as they were outrushed 324 yards to 75 and quarterback Johnny Manziel had the worst game of his career (he completed less than 50 percent of his passes for the first time). While their BCS hopes are now squashed, the Aggies still are playing for a possible Capital One or Cotton Bowl bid here, as they would be an attractive team with nine wins and the dynamic Manziel.

The Tigers have some notable edges here, as they are plus-146 yards per game at home while the Aggies are getting outgained by 18 yards per game on the road. The Tigers also have a defensive front seven that is capable of pressuring Manziel, as the Tigers have 27 sacks in SEC play alone and have forced a turnover in 41 consecutive games. Look for Missouri to make a key stop or two and punch its ticket to Atlanta.

Pick: Missouri 40, Texas A&M 30

No. 25 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at No. 8 Stanford Cardinal
Saturday at 7 p.m. ET

The home team has won four of the past five games and last year Notre Dame survived a controversial ending in overtime, 20-13. Stanford is in the midst of one of the toughest stretches in college football this year, coming off Oregon, USC, archrival California and also the Pac-12 championship game coming up next week. Both teams have played USC and Arizona State and the Irish have actually fared better, sweeping both. However, in the past two weeks they have lost defensive tackle Louis Nix III and center Nick Martin to season-ending injuries, and that is not good news facing a physical Stanford team playing with revenge in mind.

Pick: Stanford 30, Notre Dame 16
