Well, last week was forgettable for sure. My picks were average, my upset special had no chance and though Maryland hung around, they were blown out in the end. This week doesn’t have many good games. There is a top 10 matchup that may be one of the bigger blowouts of the week and we know how those can end up.
Oklahoma State (+3) at Texas Tech
Texas Tech hung tough at Oklahoma, but the expended a ton of energy and emption to do so. Okie State comes in and will be a pain for the Red Raiders, but that dreamy Kliff Kinsgbury will have TT prepared and will squeak out a win. Also, anyone know when those “I’m a Man, I’m 40” jokes are set to expire?
Texas Tech 35 Oklahoma State 31
Georgia (-3) at Florida
I am getting bored with these SEC mathcups. This week is so bad so I had to choose 1 and this was the best. If you have leaves to take care of in your yard, I would recommend that over this game. Decent teams having ho hum years. Enjoy!
Georgia 24 Florida 13
Michigan (+6) at Michigan State
Michigan is still singing that little brother song about MSU. Though that is most likely the case, why even say it? MSU has had a nice run while Michigan was in the dumps, which adds to the mystery of Toussaint even saying it . MSU defense matches up well with UM, but if Gardner can keep the turnovers down, they have a chance…. I just don’t think he will.
Michigan State 26 Michigan 17
Northwestern (+7) at Nebraska
He’s an overrated coach, loves is alma mater,
Loves punting and whining too
He’s a good guy, crazy for attention,
Loves punting and blowing big leads
It’s a long day, living in Evanston,
There’s a freeway running to the End Zone
And I’m a bad boy, ‘cos I’m pulling for Pelini
And I’m a bad boy for enjoying this mess
Northwestern’s Free, free fallin
Nebraska 26 Northwestern 19
Miami (+22) at Florida State
Florida State will win and that will annoy Ohio State fans. Spite is my favorite emotion so I hope they win big. Golden will be a sweaty mess and after 2 close games, he can finally relax as they get destroyed.
Florida State 46 Miami 13
Boise State (-7) at Colorado State
Boise State is rebuilding this year and everyone is lining up to pay them back for years of beat downs. Colorado State has never beat Boise so no time like the present.
Colorado State 29 Boise State 24
Year to date record: 36-18 (1-8 Upset Special)
