I'll come up with 12 games every week. I'll try to have them up on Monday or Tuesday of each week. I'll try to choose games between bowl caliber teams and choose the best 12 matchups I can find overall.
You'll pick the winners and post them here or on the GB10 thread, PM them to me, just get them to me. Whether you post them here or not, I will add them to the blog to make them easy to keep up with.

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.
