My AP 25 picks: Week 7

Posted on: October 9, 2008 5:54 pm
 
This week has some of the toughest matchups we've yet to see.  Sad to say, I expect my pick record to take some hits.  I pulled off 17 out of 19 last week to put my record at 95-21.

#1 Oklahoma vs #5 Texas    Texas

This pretty much boils down to a guessing game.  Neither team has played a quality opponent this season so there's no good measure for how they will perform against solid competition.  I think Texas' defense will be the better of the two and make the difference in the game.

#3 Missouri vs #17 OK State    Missouri
OK State has an impressive offense, but they won't be able to keep up with the Chase Daniel Show with special guest star Jeremy Maclin.

#4 LSU @ #11 Florida    Florida

Florida only gets one upset at home this year and Ole Miss has already cashed it in.  Look for Miles to have some off the wall play that backfires for a defensive score.

#6 Penn St @ Wisconsin    Penn St
Joe Pa's team is for real this year and will show the Buckeye's how they should've played the game in Madison last week.  Penn State doesn't let Wisconsin hang around in this one.

#7 Texas Tech vs Nebraska    Texas Tech
Another week against a high-powered offense, another loss for Pelini.  Look for less personal fouls from the Cornhuskers though.

#8 USC vs Arizona St    USC
USC will continue to get the analyst's panties wet merely by walking on the field and beating a team they are supposed to.  Somehow this will still make them a better team than all the others that haven't lost a game yet.

#9 BYU vs New Mexico    BYU
The Maniacal Mormons aren't very nice to the Loony Lobos and send them home with a loss.

#10 Georgia vs Tennessee    Georgia
Phil Fulmer is living a nightmare and Tennessee's AD may wake him up from it at the end of the season.  Chalk up one for L for the Volunteers.

#12 Ohio St vs Purdue    Ohio St
#13 Vanderbilt vs Miss St    Vanderbilt
#14 Utah @ Wyoming    Utah
#15 Boise St @ Southern Miss    Boise St
#16 Kansas vs Colorado    Kansas
#20 Auburn vs Arkansas    Auburn
#21 Wake Forest vs Clemson    Clemson
#22 N Carolina vs Notre Dame    N Carolina
#23 Mich St @ Northwestern    Mich St
#25 Ball St @ W Kentucky    Ball St

My AP 25 picks: Week 7

Despite Chief Osceola's wet dream that he posted above, Texas pulled out the win.  With disappointments from Vandy and Auburn I went 14-4 on the weekend.  I'll gladly be wrong on the Missouri game....

Texas vs OU

Here in Austin it's all burnt orange, but OU will keep their winning streak alive in the series. Two of the best QBs in the nation go head to head for the second time, and the Sooners prevail (again) 31-24. On paper it's not this close but since it's a "rivalry game" throw the stats out the window...in Tallahassee where I spent my college "daze" the bumper sticker on my car said: "My two favorite teams: 1. Seminoles 2. Whoever's playing the Gators. I think LSU will win a very close game to give UF more losses than FSU has...Scalp 'Em Seminoles!

My AP 25 picks: Week 7

I'm glad that I'm not the only person who thinks Texas will win. The media and everyone else seems to think Oklahoma will win it but I think Texas has the best team.
