Central Michigan
vs. Eastern Michigan
Akron vs. Ohio
LSU vs. Texas A&M
NC State vs. (19) North Carolina
(13) Houston vs. Memphis
(14) Nebraska vs. Iowa
TCU vs. Texas
(7) Washington vs. (18) Washington State
Boise State vs. Air Force
Toledo vs. (3) Western Michigan
Baylor vs. Texas Tech
Georgia Tech vs. Georgia
Kentucky vs. (15) Louisville
(4) Michigan vs. (2) Ohio State
UCF vs. (23) USF
Syracuse vs. Pittsburgh
Michigan State vs. (12) Penn State

(25) Utah vs. (9) Colorado
Wyoming vs. New Mexico





PS:

Last week Minnesota was the "worst 7 win team in the nation", then they won by 17 and became the worst 8 win team in the nation.

They are certainly no juggernaut, but their 3 losses were all by a touchdown or less against teams with 7 wins or more...just sayin'

Are they really worse than Old Dominion? A&M? and Appalachian State?

Appalachian State nearly beat Tennessee on opening week. And Troy, but now that don't look so good now. Miami, not so much either. But for the most part, Appy has had somewhat of an easy time with most of their opponents.

Old Dominion could win the C-USA East.

A&M does the same crap every year. They start winning, get high up, then collapse. So no, they are not the worst 8-3 team.

Minnesota, although all 3 of their losses are by 7 or less, has had close battles with teams like Oregon State, Colorado State, Rutgers, couldn't get going against Illinois until the 4th quarter, and had trouble with freakin' Purdue.

So...what does that say?

It says they play to the level of their competition, which comes from poor coaching IMO.

No way "the worst" anything lost to Penn St. by 3 in OT.

Last week: 12-8
Overall: 162-97


LSU vs. Texas A&M. Another year, another A&M collapse at the end
NC State vs. (19) North Carolina. Carolina in a close one
(13) Houston vs. Memphis. Don't sleep on Memphis they aren't horrible, and this is going to be my homer pick of the week.
(14) Nebraska vs. Iowa. Hawkeyes to knock off the second ranked team at Kinneck in 2 weeks.
TCU vs. Texas. I picked Baylor over Texas and lost & picked Texas over West Virginia and lost. Can I win this week??
(7) Washington vs. (18) Washington State. Probably the biggest Apple Cup since 1981 when Washington came in 8-2 and Wazzu came in 8-1-1, the last time this matchup was for the Pac-10 championship. Albeit this will only be for the division, but the result is the same.
Boise State vs. Air Force. Boise state will have trouble, especially on the road, but I think they'll pull it out late.
Toledo vs. (3) Western Michigan. This will be a great finish to a great Friday of football.
Baylor vs. Texas Tech. First team (if any) to punt loses??
Georgia Tech vs. Georgia. Dawgs at home.
Kentucky vs. (15) Louisville. Louisville will bounce back at home.
(4) Michigan vs. (2) Ohio State. Hard to see the Buckeyes losing at the Shoe.
UCF vs. (23) USF. Won't be enough to face Navy again in the AAC championship game, but they'll still tie for the East lead.
Syracuse vs. Pittsburgh. This still doesn't feel like an ACC game.
Michigan State vs. (12) Penn State. Welcome to Indianapolis Penn State!
Auburn vs. (1) Alabama. No kick six miracle in Tuscaloosa this year as the Tide will continue rolling into and through Florida next week in Atlanta.
Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss. The rotten egg bowl as Ole Miss will reach bowl eligibility.
Minnesota vs. (8) Wisconsin. 8-3 is 8-3. Sure, they may not be a great 8-3 team but they aren't terrible either. I think they can keep it close for a while but Wiscy at home will cruise to a double digit win.
UCLA vs. Cal. Can I pick "both lose" instead??
(24) Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt. I'll take Vandy at home to reach bowl eligibility. What does Tennessee have to play for at this point anyways??
(25) Utah vs. (9) Colorado. Go Buffs to the Pac 12 title game.
Wyoming vs. New Mexico. So, if Boise loses to Air Force Friday and New Mexico wins here, and all 3 (Boise, Wyoming, New Mexico) all finish 6-2, who wins the division??

I have never heard a coach get fired for WINNING too many close games.

This isn't horseshoe

Close doesn't count .

The loss to Memphis is all a part of Houston's master plan to keep Herman.

Why the hell would LSU or Texas want a coach who's team got crushed by SMU and gave up 2 touchdowns in the final 3:50 to lose @ Memphis??

When an overhyped Houston took down an equally overhyped Louisville, that may have been Herman's finest moment (this season).
