College Football Week 12 2023 Preview. We’re in Week 12, and the top five teams are still unbeaten. That might change this week.
There are only three matchups this week between ranked teams, but two are against top-five teams, and two have spreads of only one point.

The Bulldogs Are Determined to Stay on Top
Georgia appears unstoppable, as shown by their recent Ole Miss 52-17 demolition. They easily covered the spread while clinching the SEC East. With the return of tight end Brock Bowers, the Bulldogs completed 311 passing yards and 300 rushing yards last week.
This week, they take on their third ranked team in a row, No. 21 Tennessee. The Vols suffered their third loss on the season against Missouri, 36-7. Their acclaimed rushing game was held in check by Missouri’s defense. They only managed 83 yards. The Vols will play for their lives as they host the Bulldogs this Saturday. We could be looking at another lopsided game, as the Dawgs should be able to cover easily.
Oregon State Has Two Gruelling Games Ahead of It
The Beavers might be riding high after trampling Stanford 62-17, but they have two powerful opponents to overcome if they want to be in the Pac-12 championship – Washington and Oregon. Their defense will be tested when playing against Washington and Heisman candidate Michael Penix Jr. They’ll need to put a lot of pressure on Penix to keep his passing yards to a minimum. Oregon State has kept three of their last five adversaries to under 20 points, but that might not be possible against the Huskies.
Still, the Beavers are favored by one point, which means the oddsmakers are concerned that Washington’s defense has not been playing up to their standards in recent games. This should be an exciting game to watch. Both teams have the Pac-12 Championship on the line.
Oregon State’s D.J. Uiagalelei is also having a stellar year, which might be why the total of 64.5 points is the second largest in the top 25. If both teams’ defenses can subdue the quarterbacks, you could see a play of the under. Keep your limits in, as betting could get intense.
Utah Gets a Second Chance Against Arizona
The Utes came close to defeating the Washington Huskies in Week 11, but their offense couldn’t get a rhythm going in the second half. They had two chances to tie the score in the fourth quarter but couldn’t make it happen.
Arizona hit a 24-yard field goal as time expired to beat Colorado 34-31. Coach Jedd Fisch has done well developing quarterback Noah Fifita, running back Jonah Coleman, and receiver Tetairoa McMillan. Will that be enough to overcome the battle-hardened Utes?
Both teams have exceptional defenses, so it’ll be up to the offenses to make a difference. Utah’s quarterback, Bryson Barns, reached his season high in passing yards last week.
This is another game with a one-point spread in favor of the lower-ranked team, so be ready for anything by putting your limits in.
Clemson Hopes for an Upset Against No. 22
The No. 22 North Carolina Tar Heels barely won their last game against Duke in double-overtime. Quarterback Drake Maye was 28 of 43, 342 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. They won 47-45 when they blocked a 2-point conversion attempt.
Clemson has won their last two games, one against No. 20 Notre Dame. They averaged 36.5 points of offense in those two games while only giving up an average of 22 points. You can see why they’re favored by 6.5 points, but I don’t think they’ll pull it off. They’ll be surprised by a determined North Carolina team.
