Scott Haynes, College Football Senior Editor

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Below is a compilation of The Sports Network's predictions for the top games in Week 14 of the college football season. (Detailed previews for each game can be found by following the "full scoreboard" link within the FBS college football section of sportsnetwork.com)

Miami-Ohio (6-6) vs. Central Michigan (7-5), Saturday, 11 am

The Chippewas' offensive unit could be one of the best in the history of the Mid-American Conference. While the team's defensive play is suspect, the Chippewas should have no trouble racking up points against Miami en route to their second consecutive MAC title.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Central Michigan 38, Miami-Ohio 27

- John Agovino

Navy (7-4) vs. Army (3-8), Saturday, 12 pm

In the 107-year history of this rivalry, no team has ever won six consecutive meetings. However, that will change this Saturday as the Middies are the much better team offensively, and should have no trouble against the weak rushing defense of the Black Knights.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Navy 35, Army 14

- John Agovino

Tulsa (9-3) at U-C-F (9-3), Saturday, 12 pm

This should be a classic, as Tulsa's passing game goes against UCF's dominant ground attack. The Knights have the edge playing at home and they should be able to keep the Hurricane's offense off the field with their running game, as they get their revenge with a win this weekend.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: UCF 42, Tulsa 31

- Ralph Lauro

(6) Virginia Tech (10-2) vs. (12) Boston College (10-2), Saturday, 1 pm

This game reeks of revenge, as Virginia Tech let a victory slip away late against Boston College during the regular season. Expect a tight contest from start to finish, and don't be surprised if a big special teams play proves to be the difference for the Hokies.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Virginia Tech 24, Boston College 21

- Pat Taggart

(14) Tennessee (9-3) vs. (5) L-S-U (10-2), Saturday, 4 pm

Go with LSU in this contest, as the Tigers have yet to be beaten in regulation this season. The Vols will keep it close, however, as they enter with a wealth of confidence.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: LSU 30, Tennessee 23

- Pat Taggart

Oregon State (7-4) at (18) Oregon (8-3), Saturday, 4:30 pm

Oregon State enters this contest with significantly more momentum and confidence than does Oregon. Still, playing at home is a huge advantage in this series, and Stewart will salvage some pride for his Ducks.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Oregon 24, Oregon State 20

- Pat Taggart

U-C-L-A (6-5) at (8) U-S-C (9-2), Saturday, 4:30 pm

The Bruins won a big game last week against Oregon, but they will get a USC squad at full strength and a conference crown within grasp. The Trojans are the more experienced team in critical games and that, along with a deep talent pool, should sway the outcome in their favor.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: USC 31, UCLA 17

- Scott Haynes

(21) B-Y-U (9-2) at San Diego State (4-7), Saturday, 6:30 pm

The Cougars still have something to play for, as going perfect in the MWC is certainly a worthy accomplishment. Although the chances of earning a BCS Bowl bid are slim, there is still that added incentive as well. SDSU has struggled in stopping anyone this year and that trend will likely continue in the season-finale.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: BYU 33, San Diego State 16

- Scott Haynes

Pittsburgh (4-7) at (2) West Virginia (10-1), Saturday, 7:45 pm

It all comes down to this for WVU, which showed it can win a big game by pounding UConn last weekend. The Mountaineers are now facing a lesser opponent, but in a year of consistent upsets, they must not overlook their long-time rival. Still, WVU is just too talented for the Panthers to handle, so expect them to run away with this one behind the duo of Pat White and Steve Slaton.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: West Virginia 44, Pittsburgh 21

- Ralph Lauro

(9) Oklahoma (10-2) vs. (1) Missouri (11-1), Saturday, 8 pm

With so much on the line, Missouri has to keep its emotions in check and focus on beating the Sooners. That will not be easy, however, as Oklahoma remains one of the nation's most talented teams. Give the edge to Chase Daniel and company, although a win by Sam Bradford and his teammates would not be surprising.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Missouri 34, Oklahoma 31

- Pat Taggart

Arizona (5-6) at (13) Arizona State (9-2), Saturday, 8 pm

Arizona needs this game to become bowl-eligible, so expect it to come out fired up. ASU though, is the more balanced team here and it should be able to wear down the Wildcats and outlast them for the victory.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Arizona State 31, Arizona 28

- Ralph Lauro

Washington (4-8) at (11) Hawaii (11-0), Saturday, 11:30 pm

Facing off against Boise State last week was more pressure than the Warriors had ever imagined, yet they still fought through it and came out on top. A healthy Colt Brennan still has an outside chance at being invited to New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation, but he'll need to be at the top of his game this weekend to earn the trip to the mainland.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Hawaii 49, Washington 27
