Alright here's how this is going to go. I'll come up with 12 games of interest every week for you all to choose from. You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the thread, whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.

This week's games:

(rankings reflect BCS standings)

Pittsburgh at Notre Dame

Northwestern at #17 Minnesota

Miami at Virginia

West Virginia at #25 UConn

Kansas State at Kansas

#24 Oregon at California

Duke at Wake Forest

#15 Florida State at Georgia Tech

#8 Florida at #6 Georgia

#1 Texas at #7 Texas Tech

Nebraska at #4 Oklahoma

Iowa at Illinois


My Picks:

Reaaaaaaaally tough one for me, SHOULD be a great game, I think that Notre Dame has a better defense though so I give them the W

I looked for a reason to pick Northwestern and I found one, but found more reasons to pick the Gophers, one of which being the head to head with Indiana that the two teams share, and another is that Minnesota has a better defense...and Northwestern's QB likes to turn the ball over

man, another tough one. Both teams like to turn the ball over. defensively Virginia has played better than Miami recently (17ppg allowed in last three ACC games compared to 27) but Miami has been much better on offense (35 ppg in last 3  ACC games compared to 25) ACC has been unpredictable, and this game comes out even when you average points allowed and points scored for the teams (26-26) so I'll give the edge to Miami, I think they have better special teams

only common opponent is Rutgers, but I see how that worked out for me last week...with that said though, I think WV is more explosive on offense, their losses, colorado game just looked bad, and we won't talk about ECU...I just don't think Donald Brown is going to beat WV on his own

the battle of the beaten, lets see 3 common big 12 opponents. Texas tech: Kansas 21-63 loss, State 28-58 loss. Oklahoma: Kansas 31-45 loss, State 35-58 loss. and finally Colorado: Kansas 30-14 Win, State 13-14 loss. Now state played better against Tech but the Colorado comparison pushes me over the edge here...oh, well I keep the streak of unanimous picks going

agh! alright here we go. Three common opponents...AZ state: Oregon 54-20 W, Cal 24-14 W. UCLA: Oregon 31-24 W, Cal 41-20. and Wash St.: Oregon 63-14 W, Cal 66-3 W. Mixed results here. Oregon was more impressive against AZ state, but Cal more impressive against UCLA......I'm going to go with Cal because I can. I'm playing catch up as it is

Wake is like grandpa used to be before the blue pills came out....they can't score . . .yeah that was a stretch

same reason I picked them last week, they're more explosive on offense

I'm gonna go with the dogs, they seem to be a little behind defensively, and maybe even slightly offensively if you look at the cumulative performance, but I think the offense has righted itself and will get it done against the Gators

no common opponent, but the Red Raiders have not played the quality of Big 12 opponent that the Longhorns have with similar results

you know what, I'll go against the grain here. Oklahoma has let every Big 12 opponent they've played score against them, it's bound to bite them in a game where it's not expected

last game for both teams was Wisconsin. Iowa handled them, Illinois got handled by them

Bib's College Pick 'em: Round 4

Pitt plays tough for their beloved head coach (who is no doubt on the chopping block) and goes in and edges out the Domers.

Gopher (clap, clap) Power (clap, clap)

The Canes will look similar to their counterparts of 10 years ago vs this awful VA squad

UConn lays the smack down, as WV is so bad they barely squeaked one out against my horrid War Eagles.

Somebody will have to pull the Jayhawks off of the Wildcats..this will get ugly early.  Governer's bell goes stays in Lawrence

Kevin Riley throws fo 3 bills against a poor Duck secondary, ad edge out the ugly uniforms in Berkely.

I always have to pick coach k....oh that's right...football season.  Go Wake.

FSU wins big at Tech

Florida makes up for their let down earlier this year, as the Gators chomp on the puppy dawgs

Just how good is Colt Brennan? He keeps it up as the Heisman front runner. (thought I want TTU to win)

Sooners roll the Blackshirts.  Not even close.  Somebody call up Tom Osrborne.

The Illini salvage something of a season as Juice goes wild at home.
