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. I try to pick games between teams in the top 25, or in the other's recieving votes but then I move to teams with winning records then .500 records, and all teams are FBS.

Anybody is welcome to join in at any time, dont worry about missing a week if you decide to join late.

Good Luck!

My Picks :    8-4

I've got to go with Pitt. They seem to be firing on all cylinders and while South Florida only has one loss I think that freshman is coming down to earth a bit now. Pitt RB should put forth a good game.

Domination . . .

Their only loss is to Auburn, I cant fault them for that. Of course Uconn has the emotion and all but in Howard they didnt just lose a teammate, they lost a damn good Corner. WV wins it in those ominous ass mountains (although I hear they're not ominous duringd the day lol)

Well the Huskies put up a fight, had me scared after that 88 yard TD catch in the 4th but WV came through
woo Pig sooey!!! lol, this team has been on a tear since that Bama loss. and surprisingly the defense is doing its part. holding explosive teams like Auburn and Texas A&M to 23 and 19 respectively while scoring in the 40s themselves. Ole Miss may put up a fight but Arkansas is just playing too well right now.

Well what do you know, Ole Miss has recovered . . .

I've been calling for Kansas to fall out of the top 25 for 3 weeks now, they lost to Colorado last week after barely escaping Southern Miss and then Iowa State. They continue to fall back into their place.

And there it is

The Irish dont know how to have any type of game but a close one . . . screw it. BC

One of those I hate Notre dame so i wont pick them games. my own stupidity

After allowing 21 and 17 to Iowa and Illinois the Nittany Lions have gotten back to not allowing opponents to score. Meanwhile Michigan had a tune up game last week against my from Delaware State. When I first picked this game out of the available games I was thinking upset, but that is why I have been sucking at my own pick 'ems. Nittany lions it is.

I was worried about this one but it worked out for me

Both teams seem to be the type that play to the level of their opponent. Air Force with the 3 point loss to TCU and then only scoring 10 against Wyoming . . . Utah only beating Colorado st by 7, the last time Air force was in the pick ems I picked "em" to beat Minnesota . . .they're back and Im going with them again, (my second against the grain pick I believe)

Well they took it to OT but didnt have enough in the end

The Bruins have lost 3 in a row after starting 3 and 0. The Wildcats have alternated wins and losses for the past 5 weeks. the last 3 games in that stretch by less than 7 points each. The common opponent here was stanford. UCLA lost, Arizona won in a shootout but I say the Bruins take this one and keep the cats alternating

Whatever lol, Im stupid for picking UCLA. last game I ever pick when i think the other team is better

  The SEC schedule has been rough on both teams (with the exception of their 1st games. LSU has pulled out some close wins, Auburn has swallowed back-to-back losses. Eeeeeeeeverybody is on LSU and I believe rightfully so. I wanted to go with Auburn but LSU has had 2 weeks to prepare for this game, sorry Auburn, it just aint hapnin

and it didnt, I almost went with Auburn lol

Should be a hell of a game. Probably the game of the week and I just read somewhere that its not on tv but that cant be right. I'll probably get it on VS im guessing. TCU survived a scare against Air Force but has overall been the better of the two teams defensively. I think BYU has a better offense but their defense gives up too many points for me to pick them in a game like this. Horned frogs baby!!!

Revenge of the Horned Frogs . . .

Im just going to pick them to see what it feels like . . .

It feels cheap

Alright another tough pac 10 one. I really like stanford so Im handicapping myself there and have lost with them twice already. Despite their beating washington im still not sold on AZ state, they confuse me actually. I have to pick against them

Stanford finally comes through for me

Ugh should have taken TCU like I figured. Thought in Provo that BYU would come to play. Can't believe I'm gonna probably go 10-2 at worst and still LOSE ground in the standings.
