No. 4 Notre Dame (third in the BCS) has what looks to be the easiest game, with Pittsburgh (4-4) coming to South Bend, Ind. But the Fighting Irish have played close games all season, and the Panthers seem to be making progress under first-year coach Paul Chryst.

The picks:

SATURDAY

No. 1 Alabama (minus 9 1/2) at No. 5 LSU

One question: Can Tigers score? … ALABAMA 21-7

No. 2 Oregon (minus 7 1/2) at No. 18 Southern California

Trojans can salvage their season, maybe Matt Barkley’s Heisman run … OREGON 45-31.

Oklahoma State (plus 9 1/2) at No. 3 Kansas State

Cowboys won 52-45 last year. Could be another wild one … KANSAS STATE 52-38.

Pittsburgh (plus 16 1/2) at No. 4 Notre Dame

Last four meetings (2-2) decided by average of four points … NOTRE DAME 28-13.
