The weekend of college football action rolled on Friday night with a big Pac-12 showdown between No. 10 Utah on the road against USC. The Trojans found a way to win with their third-string quarterback, Matt Fink, leading the way.

Two other huge games are on the docket Saturday afternoon with No. 3 Georgia facing off against No. 7 Notre Dame while No. 10 Michigan travels to Wisconsin to take on the No. 13 Badgers.

Before the day's action, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum gave his pick for the Big Ten battle.

He said he believes in Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines. Finebaum is rolling with Michigan to take down Wisconsin on the road.

It's a bold pick from Finebaum. Harbaugh has never won as an underdog at Michigan - though the Wolverines have only been underdogs six times in his career.

However, he's winless in those games - most of which came against Ohio State.

Can Harbaugh turn that misfortune around with a trip to Madison on Saturday afternoon? The Wolverines will need to fix their offensive woes if they want any chance of taking down the Badgers and their stingy defense.

Michigan and Wisconsin kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on FOX.
