Well, let's see how I did last week...
Overall it was NOT a good week for the 'stache. Went 10-8 overall, (including 4-1 in SEC picks) Almost had that Miss.St/Carolina game picked right. And I had a feeling about GT/VA...should have followed my gut on that one.
So..this weeks picks. You know the formula...we'll do top 25 (Non-SEC) then the picks that count.
(3)Oklahoma over Texas Tech
(5)Boise St. over Air Force (but I'm damn close to picking the Falcons in the upset here)
(16)Michigan St over (6)Wisconsin
(7)Clemson over North Carolina
(25) Washington toppling (8)Stanford
(10)Oregon over Colorado (side note: every week, every year I marvel at just how far the Buffaloes have fallen)
(11)Kansas St. over Kansas
(13)Va.Tech over Boston College
(13)Nebraska over Minnesota
(17)Texas A&M over Iowa St.
Marshall over (19)Houston
(21)Penn St. over Northwestern
Miami over (22)Ga.Tech (I think Va. laid out a good road map on how to beat the Jackets)
(23)Illinois over Purdue
And my Non-SEC Upset of the Week - It'll be Missouri over (4)Oklahoma State. I think Okie St. has been living on borrowed time
Ok..SEC Picks for this week:
(2)Alabama over Tennessee
(9)Arkansas over Ole' Miss
Vanderbilt over Army
Jacksonville St. over Kentucky (Basketball season can't come quick enough in Lexington)
And my SEC upset...it's a big one...yes, you heard it here first. Auburn will shock the LSU Tigers IN Baton Rouge. I think the distractions of this week, the suspended players, and the loss of the night game in death valley will prove fatal for the Bayou Bengals.
Those are the picks..and all the picks that count. (and I would have taken WV over Syracuse..but we won't count that one)
Side note for this week. For YEARS I hollered about the fact that Florida always had an open date, while Georgia had to slug it out with a tough SEC opponent the week before Georgia/Florida. So now, Georgia gets an open date, but the Gators STILL have an open date. Seriously...
