#6  Stanford @  Southern Cal (6-1) Stanford 56-48 3OT


My Picks: 7-5 I should have picked G tech

 
Florida State seems to have gotten themselves together in the past two games... and theyre home so I think theyll take care of business. 

 
Tough pick for me.. in the end I think the confidence boost that Michigan State got with the Win over wisconsin will go a long way. State is weaker on the road and Nebraska seems to have tightened up but I'll let my bias win this one. 

 
Fairly evenly matched here... Wake the better D. Carolina the better O. I would normally take Wake but they almost lost to Duke on the road last week so I say they will lose to UNC here on the road. 

 Im going against my bias... it hasnt gotten me anywhere. i have no idea how the hell syracuse OWNED WV as bad as LSU did. But I do know that Rutgers has a much better defense than them and an equal offense. Offense vs. defense. I say that and pick offense each time. I'll take defense at home. 

 Sooners are still a perennial powerhouse... I cant see them losing two in a row. At the end of the Tech game they got it together. They will come out ready this time. 

 If Baylor was home I'd be more inclined to take them But their 2 losses are both on the road. and this is a road game. 

 I have no idea what happened to SMU last week... but Ill assume it wont be a trend

 Was gonna let bias make me pick Illinois but nah... Penn State it is. AZ state win is the only good win for Illinois

 If Florida could win this game that would be greaaaaaaat... Georgia is the better team though. 

 Do it for me G tech... do it for me

 Wisconsin did lose to a defensive team but... State has a much better defense. and a better offense than Ohio state so. boom

 Stanford has toyed with everybody... I think this is their best competition yet but they get it done without a chink in their armor

This week's games: I was going to try to make a habit of getting the games up on tuesday but I have an interview at 7 a.m. tomorrow and Im going to bed early, that combined with my day being thrown off by a couple of hours prevented me from picking games.

My Picks: 7-5

 I guess Clemson keeps winning... Undecided

 Tough one... Im going to take Cinci out of comfort. 

 I think Missouri can win this game... Im going to be pissed if they do. 

 Jacorry harris doesnt throw picks anymore??? I think Miami loses a close one... 

 Auburn's offense is actually worse than LSU's... how about that. 

 I guess Virginia is winning with their defense? Their QB has 3 tds and 8 picks... Im thinking NC state 27-19 or something like that

 I think Cal will welcome an opponent without a prolific offense... 

 After a rough start Notre Dame seems to be firing on all cylinders. USC has been winning but.. theyve been weird to me. I like the balance of Notre Dame to pull this one out. 

 Took me forever to pick this one... finally decided SMU beat TCU on the road. Southern Miss' loss was to Marshall and SMU's to Texas A&M. and then after I had already decided I see that So. Miss has had 2 weeks to prepare... oh well Ill stick with the stangs

 Youre probably gonna need a little bit of a defense to beat Oklahoma

 Washington has a chance... to be the first team to break 20 against Stanford. Meanwhile Stanford will be in the 40's or higher and this W should help them in the BCS standings. 

 I WANT WISCONSIN IN THE SHIP!!! Yeah I said it out loud now. Felt good to say. I plan to watch this game to decide if Wisconsin is what I think they are with this Michigan state defense #1 against the pass and #3 against the rush??? my goodness. 


I really hope some upsets happen this week... pick em averages have been too high for my liking. lol

#18  Arizona State @ #9  Oregon Oregon 41-27


My Picks: 9-3

 
I went back and forth on this pick... I dont know how Baylor loses if Griffin completes 80% of his passes, the answer is that the defense gives up too many points but A&M's isnt better... statistically its worse. combine that with the fact that Tennehill is much more prone to mistakes, and the fact that Im going to look at baylor's kansas state collapse as a team panicing in their first road game. Baylor is better than their ranking. (or at least thats what Im banking on) 

 Toughest call perhaps but Im going to take the Michigan State #1 ranked defense at home... Their defense is good because of game planning just as much as it is personnel so Im sure they have concocted something for Denard. I say they make a play on special teams to give them the added bump on offense. Close but state pulls it out. 

Im not sure you could pay me to watch this game... however I think it could be close because neither team will be able to score. State because their offense sucks and Purdue because states defense is great. I will take state at home but... nah thats it

 
I still remember when Shaw started the season though many people seem to have forgotten... Im hoping that the good game against Kentucky + the fact that Spurrier finally got off his own wanting to be right to let Garcia go will give Shaw confidence and make him comfortable. State does have a good D so I dont want us to get behind with a guy who has never faced adversity yet. 

 This game isnt as bad as I thought it was when I forced myself to allow it to be on the slate... G Tech hasnt been running over ACC opponents. Beat UNC by 7, NC State by 10 and Maryland by just 5. Im guessing ACC oppontents know what theyre getting into with this offense. That said. Virginia hasnt exactly done anything so I cant justify picking them. 

 Im a prophet!!! lol Future big east conference matchup.... lol UCF has always been a good defense and i was ready to call this offense vs defense but since June left the island it appears he's picked up a defense somewhere. The win over TCU is hugely impressive and is probably why they got the invite. Go Mustangs. 

 I dont think this is as bad a game as its being made out to be either... i wouldnt be shocked if Texas won. I cant take them here though. Too many uncertainties with them for me. 

 I was set to pick Illinois until I looked at their games... They had close ones with Western Michigan and Northwestern at home which doesnt instill confidence. Ohio State meanwhile had close losses to Nebraska and Michigan state who are better teams than Illinois has seen this year... Im banking on the buckeyes having not given up. 

 Another tough one... I think Tech has just enough defense to slow Wake's offense and just enough offense to hang with wake if it becomes a shootout... Neither has exactly played the class of the conference yet. Wake's close wins against bad teams are why i picked against them here.

 Toss up game... Kansas state has been skating by for 3 weeks now. I say this is a close game they finally lose. Especially since their on the road. My gut wants to tell me Tech wont get enough stops but at home I think they will. We shall see. 

 Im not as down on Florida as everyone else seems to be... i mean they lost to LSU and Bama, thats not exactly something to be ashamed of but these two teams are pretty evenly matched and Auburn is at home. They also seem to be content to run first now so they should take care of business with Florida still a mystery to me right now. 

 Arizona State hasnt exactly played the big boys in the conference so I will stick with the ducks in this one. Especially being at home.

My Picks: 9-3

 You have no idea how bad my idiocy wants me to pick Texas. Fact is they have yet to play a team with an offense... and uh Oklahoma has quite the offense. Colt's little brother will not be able to outshoot Landry. I will temper it though and say Oklahoma wins 35ish to 21ish.. 

 Sorry Wake... it appears its unanimous... you beat NC state and BC... and barely.... nobody believes you. 

 Ugly game, I know but hey its for Big East Supremacy! yeah I didnt bite on that either.... Pitt is the better team easily. All of Rutgers' games have been close to this point though. 

 Utah's really got up for BYU apparently because that was the last time that team was seen. AZ State is as just-above-average as just above average gets but I dont think Utah packs enough of a punch when they arent playing a rival to handle AZ state. 

 Putting my infatuation with the armed forces academies aside to pick the Irish here... somewhere along the line they became a defensive team. Who knew. 

 I think Iowa has JUST enough offense to get this done... 

 Ah now I struggled deciding if I was going to go with the upset here... two pretty evenly matched defenses... Florida better offensively but their QB has been more mistake prone than LSUs... LSU is at home. I think Florida pulls this off. I want them to because i hate LSU. If they dont i wont mind because I kinda want my Gamecocks to win the East lol. I wish i had more reasoning for everybody else picking LSU. Alright I wasnt paying attention to the Florida QB situation... pick changed to LSU lol 2:30 Eastern

 Poor A&M, barely losing to two top teams has got to suck... They should have a field day against the Tech D. I could see them taking out their frustrations on them. Or... falling flat on their faces. Obviously hopin for the former. 

 I had high hopes for Tennessee... looks like the Dawgs win this one. not a better QB but SEC is about defense and running backs... Georgia wins both categories. 

 Allow me to pretend last week didnt happen. No reason for my Gamecocks to lose to Auburn... too much throwing, not enough Lattimore. Anyway. Go Hogs. 

 Ill admit I let bias make me go against the laws of football and it got me the L on K state-Baylor but whatever. I dont see Iowa state having enough of anything to beat Baylor. Especially at home coming off of a dissappointing loss. 

 Nebraska is highly overrated... theyve been huge disappointments. That said Im not sure Ohio State has enough offense. Their defense could make it interesting but Im not sure the O can get it done. Id be more inclined to take them if they were at home but they arent. Nebraska it is.

My Picks: 7-5

 A&M's first SEC game since... oh not yet? whatever, this rivalry will have some more juice soon but as for now... We have a shootout here. A&M is more balanced and i was going to take them but then I said id take the team with the QB less likely to mess up... which appears to be the Arkansas QB so... 

 i dont trust either team so I'll go with the home team. 

 Neither QB has thrown a pick... Tech is just a little bit more explosive. Neither team plays D

 Ill take Navy with two weeks of rest and the fact that Air Force is coming to them. 

 
unless garcia screws this up it should be cash money. Auburn's D is terrible especially against the run and oh yeah we have a heisman candidate at RB 

 
Classic offense vs. defense matchup. Supposedly you take the defense in that scenario but have you seen Griffin's numbers? This dude is a walking completion. Ive loved him since he was a freshman. 

 Each team has a road loss to a team i dont like... and i mean that in the, i wouldnt have picked that team to win way. Ill go with state since they seem to have a little more juice to them.

 This was a tough one... this is Va Tech's first real game... this is Clemson's first road game. Both are going to start rough most likely. i was going to take clemson based on being more impressive... by actually playing people but boyds first road test + going home pressure. go va tech

 
Ill take utah at home with 2 weeks to prepare... 

 Iowa state has had two weeks to prepare AND its a home game... I just dont think Iowa State can score enough plus all their games have been close which says to me they play to their opponent. Thats a loss waiting to happen. 

 My gut pick was Wisconsin and after reviewing the teams Ill stay with them. Nebraska's D made washington look great and Fresno look good/themselves look bad. Meanwhile, Wisconsin has run over all of their opponents, and Russel Wilson has looked great. They look like a national championship team. Oh and theyre at home so. Easy pick for me. 

 As much as i want to pick the upset here i wont do it. both teams like to run the ball down your throat and play good D... Id take florida at home but Bama and LSU are alike in their ugly, yet winning ways.

My Picks: 4-8 Cry

 Ill stay on track with this unanimous selection here. My only concern is G Tech's defense. Im sure theyll break 30 points but Im not sure what theyll allow here. All of their opponents have put up 20+ on them so if they stay in the 30s UNC may get them. If they get rolling though they should take care of business... 

 Gotta have an upset pick my goodness. (This is the 11th game Im picking not 2nd) Youve got players facing their old coach. SD state has a better O than Notre Dame and Notre dame almost got Michigan. They can pull this off. 

 I picked temple to beat Penn State because I knew they had the defense to stop them. Penn State didnt have a great.. or even good offense though. Maryland does. Temple wont beat them with just their defense like they should have Penn state, yes should have, Temple screwed themselves. They run the ball the whole game and want to throw while up with 5 minutes left? idiots...

 I probably would have picked Arkansas had they not had that close game with Troy. Alabama just finds ways to win. I wont pick against them yet I guess. 

 Yall think i was going to take Clemson two weeks in a row? lol Florida State held their own with OK. Its time for Taj Boyd to have a bad game... 

 This is really A&M's first game but weeden 8 tds and 6 picks? Thats worrying to me. Despite how prolific that offense has been. Plus I have to support my SEC... oh they arent in yet? Eh, still taking them.  

 Wow, Kansas state #1 defense in the land lol. But they only beat eastern Kentucky 10-7... so Miami is the easy call here for explosiveness alone. 

 Washington seems to play to the level of their oppenent. They should come ready for this game but Cal looks to have a solid team right now. Washington might do a little more on offense but Cal has the more stout defense. Should be interesting, could go either way easily. 


 These teams might be well matched here but Im going to use Souther miss's road loss to marshall to decide they cant go back up the map and get this win on the road. 

 Vanderbilt has the #11 defense huh... they havent exactly played anybody with an offense though lol. Its also their first road game and I know Williams Brice is going to be going crazy for a night game, nationally televised no less. 

 and this is the last game I picked... guess I loaded up on upsets at the end. I hate that LSU wins yet looks terrible. Geno Smith needs to do this for me... I was on the fence about this pick but then i saw WV was the home team so i went for it. I dont see why they would be a bad addition for the SEC

 USC is 3-0 but they won ugly against bad teams... Im not impressed by Syracuse lol. AZ state better do this for me...

My Picks: 6-6

 Halfway wanted to take the terps but after review Ive decided they dont have enough defense to stop Geno Smith. I wish we had two terps games to go by but all we have is the miami game. 

 If you recall I took temple in this game last year and they almost pulled it off... they were a great team last year and based on the way they handled their first 2 opponents Id say theyre still just as good. Its mostly their defense and Penn States offense isnt exactly explosive this year. I think Temple comes in with confidence coming off of last season and gets it done. 

 Im tired of watching Auburn pull wins out of nowhere... I hate picking a rival but Boyd seems to have the clemson offense running decently. Auburn's defense is still young... 

 It looks like this game will be a shootout... not necesarilly an airborne one though...  both defenses seem weak and both offenses seem potent. I think people are knocking Kansas for the North Illinois game but North illinois was recieving poll votes. Im still taking Georgia Tech though. In a close one. 

 I have a sneaky suspiscion about UCLA. They might as well be in the SEC. I feel like they have the offense to hang with Texas but I havent seen texas and the san jose state game last week by UCLA wasnt exactly a strong win. 

 This game made the blog because I was thinking maybe Nebraskas struggles against fresno would waver some people. Most of you still went with Nebraska... I will too. I think the Hawaii win means something for washington but Im not sure. 

 Taylor Bray's stats are off the charts... this will be the first real offense Florida faces. Brantley has done what? Yeah, I say Tennesse jumps on them Brantley has to press and makes at least one crucial mistake. 

 I think Illinois has the talent to hang but they havent played an offense yet, and AZ state def. has one. AZ State however has and will be ready for Illinois' 

 I was about to take Miami but then I remember Jacorry Harris was starting... I doubt hes fixed my knock on him 

 This is ridiculously tough for me... Neither team has done anything. Oklahoma had a game against a Tulsa team that has a decent offense but cant handle a big 12 D. Theyve had two weeks to prepare for this game, meanwhile FSU has had two practice games. This will be a wake up call type game for both. If one team starts hot theyll be at a huge advantage. In the end I think FSU can get stops, and i think OU's D cant get enough. 

 Its hard looking at USC as an average team but they are... Syracuse had a great defense but I think its gotten weaker since last year. USC should pull this one out too.

 This looks like a defensive battle... and I think BYU has the better defense.

My Picks: 8-4

 I mean you saw Utah State run on Auburn... I expect Vick Ballard to get loose. Changing of the guard in the west becomes official. Well for this year, you know Auburn will be back. 

 Both teams played nobody's in game one... I like the UNC offense a lot though so I'll take them. 

 I think this is my first true upset pick of the year... Look, McCarron threw 2 picks last week against who Kent St? This Penn State defense is much tougher. Penn State is home and that crowd gets crazy. Why not? 

 So yeah... Cinci loses coaches but they seem to still be able to put up points. I think they have enough offense to overcome an SEC defense when the offense with Im not sure about just yet. Though they looked decent last week. 

 I want to take Air Force... theyre home (I could probably go to the game) and I like them period but Im not sure their defense can get enough stops for them against TCU. Pachall picked up where Dalton left off. 


 Im going with hawaii.. Washington was bad WITH Jake Locker... they almost lost to Eastern Washington last week. 

 Yall are shocked I picked my gamecocks? Garcia is back... he gets jefferey involved this week of course. I think our freshman gets his first sack. We get to see what the 2011 Gamecocks are really about. Im slightly concerened about our secondary but that WR for ECU is a beast and the QB is solid too. 

 I put this game on here thinking Id be taking NIU but I think Im going to go against my initial thinking here. I think Kansas may have just enough offense to pull this off. 

 Ill take the Longhorns. Should be a solid game but BYU let me down last week letting Ole Miss hang with them. Perhaps they arent as good as I assumed theyd be. 


 Utah's defesne should be strong enough to slow down the USC offense but Im not sure they have enough firepower to score on their defense. Game could go their way but I'll side with the Trojans here. 

 Did Notre Dame decide on a QB? Yeah, I'll take Michigan... 

 Man I hate ACC teams... Im picking UCF partially because of that and knowing BC will probably hang with them at least even though I feel like they shouldnt.
