Evil Bill O’Brien’s Weekly Pick Six To Go – Week 10


A 2-4 week after a loss to Ohio State is a real punch in the face.  The silver lining is one of the losses I picked was USC to win and went against my gut.  Picking Lane Kiffin to win a game that actially requires him to coach is like asking me to punt on 3rd down; not happening.  Florida got me again, Michigan flamed out and Notre Dame is better than I want to admit.  I did hit the upset special (and even predicted OT) with Washington over Oregon State, but that was small potatoes vs. my other duds.

A new week and a generally uneventful week as usual.   Away we go to a 6-0.

Alabama (-7) at LSU

These teams are so great blah blah blah. These teams are good, but they play the worst football games.   I am sure if I had a rooting interest, I would think otherwise, but I don’t.  LSU will give Bama it’s 1st real test, but that being said, this will be a smackdown. Not sure if LSU will resort to Bolden to throw for a TD since he does have some experience doing so vs. Bama. I can see Alabama struggling for a ½, but they will pull away in the end.

Alabama 24 LSU 7

Oklahoma State (+7) at Kansas State

Bill Snyder is a magician with his ability to coach.  If Mike Gundy was a man at 40, what does that make Snyder at 73? KSU big.

Kansas State 47 Oklahoma State 21

Texas A&M (-2.5) vs. Mississippi State

Texas A&M has ruined a lot of Evil Bill’s picks so far this year so now it is time for them to pay.  Mullen and his Penn State loving dad will prevail vs. this overrated A&M team.

MSU 31 Texas A&M 15

Texas (+2.5) vs. Texas Tech

How Texas is ranked is beyond me.  That is soon to change and the heat on Mack Brown will intensify with a bad defensive effort combed with a poor offensive showing.

Texas Tech 33 Texas 12

Oregon (-6) at USC

Kiffin in a game that he shouldn’t win, will not let me down.  I just hope he’s embarrassed and then eventually gets fired and disappears from my TV forever.

Oregon 53 USC 32

Upset Special

Clemson (-14) at Duke

I really have no feel this week so I am going big.

Duke 27 Clemson 26

Season Record 35-18 (5-4 on Upset Specials)
