(15) Louisville vs. NC State. NC State is pretty good, I agree with SouthernTiger, they get the win at home. Week night, primetime game at home, give me the home team 95% of the time, and the home team 100% of the team when the teams are close matchups wise like these 2 teams are.
Memphis vs. Connecticut. Woof! 4 more weeks till basketball season starts for us here in Connecticut. Memphis should bounce back after the embarrassingly bad game @ UCF, if they don't it could come spiraling downhill quickly for them.
Boise State vs. BYU. Talk about a team that is bad...and I actually picked them week 1 to win @ LSU
Last week: 15-5
Overall: 61-35

Temple vs. East Carolina. A pillow fight. And ECU hates me! When I pick them they lose, when I pick against them they win, so I'm already writing this down as a loss.
Ole Miss vs. (18) Auburn. Back-to-back weeks on the road @ Bama and Auburn?? Which staffer on Ole Miss ran over the SEC commish's pet to get that draw??
Illinois vs. Iowa. At Kinneck, so they should win.
(3) Penn State vs. Northwestern. I think Northwestern will keep them close for a while, but Penn State just has too much talent.
(6) Georgia vs. Vanderbilt. See the game above. Vandy at home will compete, but unfortunately the Dogs just have too much talent.
Duke vs. Virginia. Ehh....don't know much about either, I'll pick the home side.
Pittsburgh vs. Syracuse. the annual ACC matchup that shouldn't be an ACC matchup.
LSU vs. (22) Florida. Sure, LSU has owned the series in recent years, AND they are coming off that atrociously embarrassing home loss to Troy, but Florida has found ways to win games this year, and I think they do it again.
Air Force vs. Navy. Round 1 of the commander-in-chief trophy.
(24) Notre Dame vs. North Carolina. UNC is not good.
Minnesota vs. Purdue. Maryland beat Minnesota on the road last weekend, Purdue should be able to beat them at home.
(20) West Virginia vs.(8) TCU. Horned Frogs!
(14) Miami vs. Florida State. Since it's a rivalry game, you throw records out the window and pick the home side.
Arkansas vs. South Carolina. I'm not sure if South Car is any good, but Arkansas certainly doesn't look any good.
SMU vs. Houston. Remember this game last year basically eliminated Houston from whatever miniscule chance they had at the playoff when they lost in Fort Worth?? Cougs at home.
Kansas State vs. Texas. Another toss up for me. Texas seems to be playing better and are at home.
(2) Alabama vs. Texas A&M. Johnny Manziel maybe there in College Station since I don't think he's got much going on now-a-days. The problem for A&M unfortunately is that Manziel doesn't have any NCAA eligibility left to walk through that door for the Aggies.
Missouri vs. Kentucky. Mizzou looks like garbage!
Michigan State vs. (10) Michigan. No kick six miracle for Sparty this year.
UCF vs. Cincinnati. UCF by about 7-10.
(9) Wisconsin vs. Nebraska. I have a feeling this will be a lot closer than people think. And I want to pick Nebraska, but they are too inconsistent so I can't do it.
Arizona vs. Colorado. Buffs at home against a not very good Arizona team.
(5) Washington State vs. (23) Oregon. So, if Wazzu wins this they likely go into their final 2 games 10-0, where 2 weeks before they play @ Washington, they'll play in Salt Lake City against Utah. I think this gets ruined however as the Ducks win a late one in Autzen.
(25) Stanford vs. (17) Utah. I think Stanford is the better team and I would easily pick them without hesitation if they were at home, but on the road I think Utah edges them,
Cal vs. (4) Washington. Huskies shouldn't be tested until they go to Palo Alto on November 10.

Not too often that you see a QB sack a QB (Lanning/Mayfield).

Coach Rodriguez finds yet another QB for his Wildcats football program.

Khalil Tate set an FBS rushing record (327 yds) for a QB when he came in to relieve an injured Brandon Dawkins midway through the 1st quarter. The Cats beat Colorado 45-42.

20-6 so far with Utah (likely loss) and Washington (likely win) still upcoming, so I will likely finish this week 21-7 which will get me to 82-42. Damn Florida State. They may have lost in overtime anyways, but how the hell does he get into the end zone on that play with under 10 seconds to play??

Announcers stated that it was Iowa St's first win over Oklahoma in 27 years. It's a savory one..

NC State is quietly looking good..

And my other thought, I was thinking & hoping Maryland football was kinda turning a corner, but they got stomped yesterday.
