The Weekend Picks Panel has reconvened for another season of debating the spreads in college football every weekend. In this Week 1 edition of the Expert Picks Podcast, Tom, Jerry and I get back to giving you the reasons for our Expert Picks.

We begin by giving you facts that matter for the five biggest games on the weekend slate, in addition to sharing our against-the-spread selections. After that we each pick one "lock" -- term used loosely, for we are not professional handicappers -- and one quarantine game. The quarantine game, as you might imagine, is the one you want to avoid entirely.

Games discussed in the podcast:

No. 5 Georgia vs. No. 8 Clemson (+1 1/2)
No. 20 TCU vs. No. 12 LSU (-4 1/2)
Mississippi State at No. 13 Oklahoma State (-12 1/2)
No. 1 Alabama vs. Virginia Tech (+19 1/2)
North Carolina at No. 6 South Carolina (-11 1/2)
Toledo at No. 10 Florida (-23 1/2)
Nicholls State vs. No. 3 Oregon (-58 1/2)
New Mexico State at No. 15 Texas (-42 1/2)
No. 19 Boise State at Washington (-3 1/2)
