Oregon vs. Nebraska
Pittsburgh vs. Oklahoma State
Alabama vs. Ole Miss

Georgia vs. Missouri
Ohio State vs. Oklahoma
USC vs. Stanford
UCLA vs. BYU
Texas vs. Cal

Pick Overall Record: 19-13
Pick Record Last Week: 7-8

Here are my picks.
Houston vs. Cincinnati (Houston should win with a healthy Greg Ward Jr. but this is a potential trap game for them.)
Miami vs. Appalachian State (It'll be interesting for about 2 1/2 quarters, before Miami pulls away.)
Florida State vs. Louisville (I'm calling the upset alert. I think that Lamar Jackson is going to have another great game, and neither Deondre Francois or Dalvin Cook will be enough to save the day for the Seminoles.)
Temple vs. Penn State (Yeah...I don't think the Nittany Lions won't be sleeping on Temple after last year.)
North Dakota State vs. Iowa (This will be the year NDSU's streak over FBS opponents ends. Iowa has got much better talent then they do. Look at who NDSU has beat. They haven't had to face an FBS opponent like Iowa.)
Vanderbilt vs. Georgia Tech (Sorry, Commodores. Triple option FTW.)
Colorado vs. Michigan (Michigan is gonna defeat their entire non-conference schedule. Although it would be funny to see Colorado pull off another Miracle at Michigan.)
Oregon vs. Nebraska (This is gonna be a fun game to watch.)
Pittsburgh vs. Oklahoma State (Looking at both teams, i don't think Oklahoma State will come back from the CMU loss with a win over Pittsburgh. Not looking like a good year for the Cowboys.)
Alabama vs. Ole Miss (Saban ain't gonna lose to Ole Miss 3 years in a row. This year's Ole Miss team has not impressed me like the ones from the last two seasons have.)
East Carolina vs. South Carolina (After looking at how South Carolina performed against the cowbell school last week...I ain't impressed with them, and i don't see going to a bowl this year.)
Texas A&M vs. Auburn (Despite Auburn's good defense, A&M will survive in Jordan-Hare.)
Mississippi State vs. LSU (Even if Les does start Brandon Harris, LSU is Mississippi State's kryptonite. No matter how good or bad State is and how good or bad LSU is, LSU, 9 times out of 10, always beats them.)
Michigan State vs. Notre Dame (MSU has played 1 game so far. And it does not impress me.)
Georgia vs. Missouri (Kirby's going to do a lot of work with Georgia after the Nicholls State game.)
Ohio State vs. Oklahoma (Game of the night to watch. And looking at both teams, I'll take Ohio State in a close, fun game.)
USC vs. Stanford (I expect Stanford will cruise on, this being another win for them.)
UCLA vs. BYU (This was a tough game to decide for me.)
Texas vs. Cal (Cal ain't ready to face the offense that Texas has.)


what were you saying about North Dakota State ?

Louisville looks RIDICULOUS. I would put them #2 right now. Only Bama deserves to be ranked higher, IMO.

Florida State vs. Louisville Upset. Early kick. Frosh QB gets rattled.
Temple vs. Penn State PSU turn this year.
North Dakota State vs. Iowa This is Iowa's year I think.
Vanderbilt vs. Georgia Tech No idea just going with the Home team.
Colorado vs. Michigan Colorado is turning the corner. UM has turned the corner.
Oregon vs. Nebraska Mild Upset.
Pittsburgh vs. Oklahoma State Pitt has let down after Big in state win...One of the biggest in recent memory.
Alabama vs. Ole Miss Revenge...it took five turnovers to beat Bama won't happen this year.
East Carolina vs. South Carolina Road team upset.
Texas A&M vs. Auburn Home team
Mississippi State vs. LSU Miss. St. isn't the same team.
Michigan State vs. Notre Dame ND has their number and I think will go on a roll the next couple months. Until they face an elite offense.
Georgia vs. Missouri Not impressed with either team.
Ohio State vs. Oklahoma Oklahoma had all kinds of problems with Houston. OSU is Houston with better personnel.
USC vs. Stanford Closer than folks think. Comes down to a last second FG.
UCLA vs. BYU MildUpset here.
Texas vs. Cal Cal can't stop the run. Texas can run especially the Swoopes package.



Last Week: 9-6
Overall:9-6
"This is Iowa's year I think "


Think again !

I think that if Louisville plays like that all year against everyone they have left on their schedule, they could possibly end up being national champions.

Houston vs. Cincinnati. Short week + a national TV game will keep the Bearcats in the game but the Cougs have too much with Greg Ward.
Miami vs. Appalachian State. Might be interesting for a half.
Florida State vs. Louisville. Even though I think Florida State probably ends up winning since I dogged Florida State in week 1, keep picking against them. A blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while, right??
Temple vs. Penn State. If Penn State loses to Temple for the 3rd year in a row James Franklin could be sending out resumes next week.
North Dakota State vs. Iowa. Sorry Bisons! If this was Iowa State again I'd pick you, but the Hawkeyes get it done and end the FBS winning streak.
Vanderbilt vs. Georgia Tech. I see Tech rebounding from last year's disaster. Could be a really good game.
Colorado vs. Michigan. Kordell Stewart isn't walking through that door for the Buffs.
Oregon vs. Nebraska. This will be a fun game, but don't think Nebraska can keep up.
Pittsburgh vs. Oklahoma State. Will be tough to bounce back from last week, but at home I think they can pull out the win.
Alabama vs. Ole Miss. Ole Miss doesn't look as good as they were the last 2 years when they beat the Tide.
East Carolina vs. South Carolina. A nice road win for the AAC.
Texas A&M vs. Auburn. I think Auburn will get the conference win at home.
Mississippi State vs. LSU. They maybe terrible, but LSU has won 22 of the last 24.
Michigan State vs. Notre Dame. Go Sparty! They haven't looked good, but they'll be up for this game.
Georgia vs. Missouri. Georgia will bounce back from the bad game against Nicholls state.
Ohio State vs. Oklahoma. I'll take the mild upset. Even with the Big 12 schedule Oklahoma would be eliminated from the playoffs, while with Michigan still on the schedule for the Buckeyes, OSU would still be alive even with a loss.
USC vs. Stanford. This will be closer than the Alabama game, but Stanford should still win by 7+.
UCLA vs. BYU. BYU has played 2 games with both games decided by a combined 3 points, and BYU lost by 1 last year. I'm expecting another close game and I'll take the home team.
Texas vs. Cal. Cal has looked terrible this year. Last year was a 1 point Cal win, and think the Horns return the favor.


No, the Hawkeyes are not Iowa State but North Dakota State doesn't care which Iowa team they are.

I think it's possible. I'm not sure if they're better than Bama, but I think I would put them ahead of anyone else right now.

The scary thing is that FSU hasn't been that bad in this game. It isn't like they have six turnovers or anything. Each QB has 1 turnover. Louisville has just been utterly dominant, both side of the ball. They made the #2 team in the nation look like a high school team.

If Clemson was in need of a wake up call after halfhearted efforts against Auburn and Troy, they better be watching the Cardinals today. They have two weeks to get right.

Meh. Trash talking after the game is over is easy.

I didn't see you in here picking the Bison over Iowa during the week.

Congrats, that is a solid Div II school you got there.
