Week 11 football picks

Each week, Sports Editor Mark Podolski picks five games, four against the spread: one high school, two college and two NFL.

Another 3-2 week is OK, but 0-2 making college picks isn't. The season mark is 28-21. Here we go:

Mentor vs. St. Ignatius at Lakewood Staidum: A spot in the Division I state semifinals is at stake here, and the team to make the fewest turnovers will likely advance. The Cardinals turned it over seven times last week against Solon and still won. Just a hunch, but Mentor takes care of the ball and survives for at least one more week. PICK: Mentor 38, St. Ignatius 31


Penn State (+5.5) at Ohio State: The Penn State scandal hits the road, but unfortunately for the Nittany Lions, they won't bring their offense because they don't have one. PICK: Ohio State 23, Penn State 6

Nebraska (+2.5) at Michigan: A chance at a top-flight bowl game and a possible 10-win season is on the line for both teams. Wolverines QB Denard Robinson is expected to play. PICK: Michigan 27, Nebraska 17


Jacksonville at BROWNS (+1): Team trainwreck continues to be a disaster for Browns faithful. This season is already a lost one ... again. PICK: Jacksonville 17, Browns 10

Philadelphia (+5.5) at N.Y. Giants: The Eagles dream team is now a nightmare, and it appears QB Michael Vick won't play for Philadelphia. PICK: N.Y. Giants 24, Phiadelphia 13
