Week 11 football picks

Each week during the football season, Sports Editor Mark Podolski will pick NFL, college,and high school games.

After two straight 4-1 weeks, it's back to the dumps with a 2-3 mark last week. The season mark stands at 21-28-1. Here we go:


Mentor vs. St. Edward, Saturday: The last time the Cardinals faced off against a Catholic school power, St. Ignatius easily handled them. That was back in Week 3, so this is a different Mentor team, but so are the Eagles, who appear determined to win the big-school state title. PICK: St. Edward 38, Mentor 21


Texas A&M (+16) at Alabama, Saturday: The Crimson Tide are coming off an emotional, hard-fought win at LSU, but don't expect too much of a letdown against the Aggies. PICK: Alabama, 27-10

Kansas State at TCU (pick): The big question is will K-State QB Collin Klein play. The guess is he does, and if that's the case, take the Wildcats. PICK: Kansas State, 31-24


Indianapolis at Jacksonville (pick), Thursday: The Jaguars' only win of the season was against the Colts, who are a surprising 5-3 this season. With QB Andrew Luck, expect Indy to improve to 6-3. PICK:  Colts, 24-17

Houston at Chicago (pick), Sunday: Both teams are 7-1, but the Bears defense has been simply awesome this season. Go with the home team. PICK: Bears, 23-10
