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: 7-5

It's sad about the Rutgers player who (last I heard) is paralyzed from the neck down after a hit he made last week. Going on the road when dealing with something emotional like that isnt a good recipe. Rutgers is prone to close games as it is.

Yep, think im finally picking Notre Dame to win. when choosing navy games I always look at the opponent's run D. Notre dame seems to be pretty solid. You can slow down the triple option you should be able to control the game against Navy.

Gonna take Illinois here. Their defense seems to keep them in games. The most points scored on them is 26 and they held Ohio State to 24. Indiana is all offense. If their offense doesnt travel they def. lose.

banking on the te xas game having been a fluke. better have been . . .

My hatred for Clemson is understood right? alright good.

Both hung a 50 spot on Kansas. i feel like Baylor takes care of business more often when theyre better than their opponent. K state seems to coast more. also helps that baylor is at home.

I like both teams. Cal seems to be a different team on the road (all losses are road losses) though they're home here. AZ State has 3 losses to rank teams. All of which could have gone the other way if you take a play here or there away. AZ state's luck changes

Two stout defenses. Wisconsin has the better overall offense but their strength is the run, which happens to be where Iowa is strongest on defense. That combined with the fact that Iowa is the home team get them the win.

The number of close games these two have is ridiculous . . . a score here or there are what seperate the champs from the disappointments though right. Auburn is all offense and LSU is basically all defense. Unfortunately i think Cam Newton will be smiling at the end of this one as well.

F it, im taking the Heels. Should be a close game and in a close game mistakes can make the difference. I still dont trust Jacorry Harris not to turn the ball over so his risk (9 interceptions) vs. Yates' risk (1 interception) says go with the Heels.

So what are the odds of 3 straight #1's going down? I say pretty good. I dont know one person who wasnt shocked to see OU at #1 when the BCS came out. I guess it gives a "traditional power" boost or something. They havent impressed me in any way this year, close game to Utah State but yeah, that was the opener. Close game against Air Force but Air force was ranked last week. Missouri had a close game against San Diego state right? san diego state beat that Air force team so id say those two cancel out so that tells me that Mizzou and OU are at about the same level. I almost hedged when i thought about murray running the ball but Mizzou's run D is better than their pass D so they could give him issues early. Mizzou is also at home. 2 upsets in 2 dif. columbia's by two different teams lol why not?

Aggh, a few weeks ago I may have taken air force, still wouldnt mind them winning. Theyve slowed down over the past few weeks though.

There are some tough games this week. I don't have time to put up my analysis today. I just hope I can get back to my winning ways. This week could easily be as bad as last week. Good luck everyone!

Long time no see Bib, but I'm game.

In case it doesn't show up.
Georgia Tech
... and as much of a homer as I can be I can't, under any circumstances, choose Air Force over TCU... (okay, maybe if we were 6-1 or 7-0)

  Kansas State

Arizona State


  Auburn- only because they're at home....rooting for LSU
