Tennessee has snapped their streak against Florida.

Orange supremacy! Yeah!

Great ending to the Vanderbilt-WKU game.

Pretty good shootout up at Autzen.

What an ending to the LSU-Auburn game.

Bye, Miles.

Like I said. How was that for a surprise?

Clemson vs. Georgia Tech. I'll take the upset at home. It's a Thursday night game on ESPN, those are always dangerous (even Cincinnati had it close there before they fell apart in the 4th). Also, remember the lone ACC game Georgia Tech won last year?? The blocked field goal on the final play returned for a touchdown to beat FSU. Yup, that was at home too.
TCU vs. SMU. The only "rivalry" in this lopsided series is whether SMU can keep it within 30 points. With TCU's defense I say yes.
USC vs. Utah. USC is a disaster.
Wisconsin vs. Michigan State. Sparty takes the momentum from the ND win last week into Spartan stadium and Big 10 play and pulls out the win.
Iowa vs. Rutgers. For all the useless and unnecessary bowl games there are, how about we add 2 extra's for the 3 worst BCS teams in football. Kansas (the worst) gets a bye, so in 1 bowl game we have Rutgers taking on Kentucky and than in the other bowl game we have Kansas facing the loser of Rutgers/Kentucky to find out once and for all who's the ultimate loser. C'mon I can't be the only one who would like to see that! Who are other candidates to replace Kentucky: Iowa State, Colorado, any others?? Virginia??
Florida State vs. USF. I'd hate to be the team that has to play FSU the week after the Louisville disaster
Georgia vs. Ole Miss. I have not been impressed at all by Ole Miss. They had a 24 (21??) point lead on Florida state and blew it, and than last week at home went up 24-3 and actually trailed by more than 2 touchdowns at 1 point in the 4th quarter.
East Carolina vs. Virginia Tech. I'll take a gamble on ECU 2 weeks in a row. ECU does better against ACC teams and Virginia Tech isn't nearly as good as South Carolina is.
Wake Forest vs. Indiana. I guess you could add these 2 teams into the "losers" tournament above. At least Indiana has actually been semi competitive in the last few years while Wake already has a road win this year.
Penn State vs. Michigan. They got the win over Temple, but Franklin's seat is probably as hot as lava. He'll have a couple chances to douse the lava: here, Ohio State & Michigan State. Even if they only win one of them it could probably buy him some time.
Pittsburgh vs. North Carolina. I'm still on the UNC bandwagon, and yes I still think they can beat FSU later next month.
Florida vs. Tennessee. If Tennessee can't beat them this year, when will they actually beat them??
BYU vs. West Virginia. Should be a fun game, and once again I'll pick BYU because it seems like whether I pick them or pick against them the opposite usually happens.
Boise State vs. Oregon State. Oregon State is terrible.
Vanderbilt vs. Western Kentucky. WKU may have the most funniest mascot in college, that thing is awesome.
Colorado vs. Oregon. Does Oregon carry a kicker on it's roster?? If they do, why keep attempting 2 point conversions?? You can get by with the first one maybe catch them napping, but if you run it 3 or 4 straight times it isn't a surprise and start taking the PAT
LSU vs. Auburn. LSU's another team that has really disappointed me this year.
Oklahoma State vs. Baylor. First to 60 wins?? Will any team even bother with defense??
Nebraska vs. Northwestern. Northwestern will win in the classroom, but unfortunately Nebraska wins on the field.
Stanford vs. UCLA. Really, really exciting game. I'll take the defense of Stanford to come up with a key stop, or to get a key turnover late.
Arkansas vs. Texas A&M. At first I thought this was @ A&M in which case I would've picked the Aggies, but looking at the schedule I see it's a Jerry's World which makes this a pick em and I'm more confident in Arkansas. A&M is just as likely to $#!t the bed than they are at winning by 20 points.
Cal vs. Arizona State. Another defense optional game. Last team with the ball likely wins since neither team can stop anyone, so I'm going to pray AZ State winds up with the ball last.
Washington vs. Arizona. A couple things going for the Cats: This will be the first good team U Dub has played this year, U Dub won 49-3 last year so you've got the revenge factor and also in play is that Washington has a short week coming up with a Friday night game against top 10 Stanford, so I see this being within a touchdown heading into the 4th quarter, but the talent of the Huskies pulls them away down the stretch.


Fun week of games again. Outside of maybe 1 or 2 not confident in the others and I'll take a 11-12 week.


Looks like I lucked out again 13-9

They're 26th in my poll. Would have made the Top 25 if Oregon hadn't lost to Colorado, which hurts them.

Kentucky gets an SEC win after all. 17-10 over South Carolina last night.

Oh, look. It's @Alabama next week. That should be fun...

LSU (2-2) has dismissed head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Cam Cameron after an 18-13 loss to Auburn. Defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron will be LSU's interim coach.
