Alright here's how this works. 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: 5-7

This is Missouri's first road game of the season. A&M has only played two good teams but they played them in the last two weeks and have lost by a touchdown or less each time and this is easily the most talented team Missouri will have played. Worst part about this miss is that i forced Chief Crazy to take Mizzou . . . lol

East Carolina's D has little-to-no chance of stoppign NC State's offense. Like I said before, like the ECU offense, defense is horrendous though . . . Awesome . . . best part was the fact that it went to OT

Yeah so Tech isnt going to be able to stop the OK State passing at all. I mean they lost to Iowa State . . . they may score but not enough. whatever

Kinda finding the logic in all of you picking USC hard to follow . . . I thought this game would be pretty balanced. SC's Defense is ranked 99th in the nation lol Cal's is ranked 8th... Now both of Cal's losses have come on the road as they are here but the Arizona loss was by 1 point so I dont feel like theyre that much worse on the road. Plus this is the year teams get to beat up on USC, Cal wants this. Ok so I look like somewhat of an idiot. I doubt any of you picked SC without hesitation . . .

I reaaaaaaaaaaaally want Auburn to lose. Ive picked multiple teams to lose that I WANT to lose but this game could go either way. Auburn's luck has to run out eventually. Both have had close games with teams theyre much better than. Arkansas was the team that let me know my Gamecocks could beat Bama when they lost to them by 4. Well Mallet going down def. didnt help but perhaps I wanted Auburn to lose a little too much. Theyve gotten better since the Clemson game

I took Michigan State to beat Michigan because of their defense . . . Iowa's is better . The score is misleading. Iowa owned Michigan

Guess I'll take Navy. That offense is hard to prep for and a team like SMU is used to being thrown against as it is. The Navy O will dominate the ball and not let SMU's pass attack be a factor. I'll take any win i can get this week.

Games like this one are ones that have killed me in the past. Where I want it to happen before I do any research so Id need to see some STRONG evidence that tells me it's not worth my time. Didnt find any. Ohio State has played one team halfway worth a damn and that was Miami at home. Jacorry Harris threw 4 interceptions as I recall and Miami only lost by 12. That was all I needed to see to know that USC wasnt as good as their #2 and now #1 ranking. they had their first road game a couple weeks ago and beat Illinois 24-13... back on the road here. I think the Badgers will come through for me and yes the fact that Wisconson lost AT Michigan state and not at home helped me keep this pick. BOOM.

Alright I'll take Florida here. Their offense is butt but their D is studly. bad offenses usually play better at home. and Gameday picked them. I mean if he picked them after the way he was talking about how horrible they are then this matchup must work for them. Welp, this loss means that my gamecocks still have control of their own destiny in the east, i should be happy about that right? divison title means nothing when the division sucks . . .

I dont know what Colorado is. I like Baylor. . . boom. I'll admit being afraid when i saw baylor was down on my bottomline earlier.

I really like Air Force as you all know. San Dieog State has some offense here though. Their QB is a prospect and so is their RB. If Air Force has some turnovers they could get upset. Discipline not usually a problem for the Armed Forces teams though. I think im going to tune into this game though. Has the potential to be a good one. In the end the close game with BYU is why i didnt take SD St. I try to tell you all I dont put games on here for nothing . . . the last five minutes or so were awesome. I love the armed forces academies. They play every down like its the last and the last they play like they have a chance no matter what the score.

I dont think Hawaii should be slept on. especially at home. I want Nevada to remain ranked though for Boise's sake so Im going to takea them here. Would NOT be surprised if they won in a close one though. Well, Nevada had a shot with about 2 minutes left but Kaepernick threw a pick . . . no points in the first half though??? does Hawaii have a D?

Bib's College Football Pick 'em 3: Week 7

#21  Missouri at  Texas A&M (3-2) In the last two games A&M has proven to be a formidable opponent. HVA gives them the win.

 NC State (5-1) at  East Carolina (3-2) ECU is usually a pretty tough opponent. They will need some breaks to win. I'll take NCSt.

#20  Oklahoma State at  Texas Tech (3-2) Toss up. I'm tempted to take Tech at home. OSU's stats look a little better. Cowboys win.

 California (3-2) at  Southern Cal (4-2) Cal is going to take it to them. I think I mentioned last week how much I hate USCw.

#12  Arkansas at #7  Auburn Another tough one to pick. My first impulse was Ark, but Auburn has a much better running game.

#15  Iowa at  Michigan (5-1) I think this may be a great battle between Michigan's run game and Iowa's defense. I'll go with defense.

 Southern Methodist (4-2) at  Navy (3-2) Defensive edge goes to Navy, but SMU can put up points and will do just that.

#1  Ohio State at #18  Wisconsin Ohio State is scoring 6 more points a game while allowing 6 pts  less. The Ohio State University.

 Mississippi State (4-2) at #22  Florida This game has upset written all over it. I will ignore it and take Florida to rebound this week.

 Baylor (4-2) at  Colorado (3-2) Baylor is a pretty good  football team.

#23  Air Force at  San Diego State (3-2) Air Force can dominate the clock with that run game. I'll take them just in case they will

#19  Nevada at  Hawaii (4-2) Take a trip to Oahu, hand the ball to Vai Taua, and go home with a win. Nevada.
