I survived semi-intact last week. I got the Texas game but missed the Oklahoma one. Mississippi State and South Carolina showed signs of life to knock off Vandy and Kentucky respectively, so that messed me up a bit too.
Last week: 14-4
On the year: 109-25
We've got some more good match-ups this week, quite a few of them outside the top 10. The ACC picture will get either clearer with a Wake Forest win or murkier if they lose.
#1 Texas vs #11 Missouri Texas
This could be an upset for Texas, but I think they'll stay focused. Texas' D will give Daniel more of the problems that he experienced last week, he's a prolific passer, but not when the D is in his face.
#2 Alabama vs Ole Miss Alabama
Ole Miss has already pulled a upset on Florida or else I'd be a bit more worried about this game. Alabama should come out focused to take care of business. By showing their hand against Florida I think Ole Miss got Alabama's full attention.
#3 Penn St vs Michigan Penn St
As much as I love Michigan, this will be an ugly game. Penn State is looking very much like a team from yesteryear; tough, focused and ready to play every down. Michigan may make a quarter look interesting, but Penn State will rule the day.
#4 Oklahoma vs #16 Kansas Oklahoma
Kansas has gotten in trouble early their past two games and Reesing has gotten them out of it. That won't fly against Oklahoma.
#6 USC @ Washington St USC
The Hollywood Trojans pull out a scripted win over their cardboard opponent Washington State (1-6, 0-4).
#7 Texas Tech @ Texas A&M Texas Tech
The Aggies' woeful season continues with a loss to Texas Tech.
#8 Oklahoma State @ Baylor Okla St
This OSU will have no problems this week, for their northern cousins it will be a different matter.
#9 BYU @ TCU TCU
One of the tougher picks this week. BYU is looking great this year, but so is TCU. I think TCU's defense will give them the edge and the win.
#10 Georgia vs #22 Vandy Georgia
If Vandy wants to win the SEC East, they'll have to do it here. However, I see Georgia having no problems dispatching the Commodores.
#12 Ohio St @ #20 Mich St Mich St
#13 LSU @ S Carolina LSU
#14 Utah vs Colorado St Utah
#15 Boise St vs Hawaii Boise St
#17 Va Tech @ Boston Col Va Tech
#18 N Carolina @ Virginia N Carolina
#19 S Florida vs Syracuse S Florida
#21 Wake Forest @ Maryland Wake Forest
#23 Pittsburgh @ Navy Pittsburgh
#24 Ball St -- OFF n/a
#25 California @ Arizona California
