Hey folks, it’s Saturday morning. Are you ready for some College Football. I know I am. My wife is in the hospital after having her gall bladder removed. FUN. I’m a little tired of crosswords, I need the games to begin. I’m not sure I’m even supposed to be on the internet here, and the signal is pretty weak. So this will be a little abbreviated.
TOP 5 Games of the Week
5. Southern Cal (3-1) at California (3-1) 8:00
USC only loses when they aren’t expected to be in trouble. They’ll be up for this.
PICK: USC 31-21
4. Auburn (4-0) at Tennessee (2-2) 7:45 ESPN
This is the game where we find out if Auburn is for real. Even though Tennessee’s offense isn’t very scary, winning in Neyland won’t be easy.
PICK: Tennessee 17-14
3. UCLA (3-0) at Stanford (3-1) 3:30
Can Jim Harbaugh really keep Stanford in the Pac-10 title race. We’ll see.
PICK: UCLA 33-27
2. LSU (4-0) at Georgia (3-1) 3:30 CBS
Are the LSU Tigers really a top 5 team. They haven’t looked it yet this season. This game would go a long way to validating them. Georgia will have something to say about that.
PICK: Georgia 35-24
1. Oklahoma (2-1) at Miami (FL) (2-1) 8:00 ABC
This game would be even bigger if Miami hadn’t laid an egg last week. It still feels like 1987 to me with the Sooners and Hurricanes in a big game. It’s up to Landry Jones to get OU past the Canes and into the Texas game still a title contender.
PICK: Oklahoma 33-21
Clemson (2-2) at Maryland (1-3) 12:00
This is the Terrapins latest must win game. I’m not picking them until they show me they can win a 1-A game.
PICK: Clemson 27-13
Air Force (3-1) at Navy (2-2) 3:30
Air Force has a quality squad this season and is a threat to Navy’s run of Commander-in-Chief trophies. It will take another spectacular game by Ricky Dobbs to get the Midshipman the home victory.
PICK: Navy 28-27
New Hampshire (3-0) at Towson (1-2) 3:30
Towson will try hard, but will have a tough time against UNH.
Pick: New Hampshire 31-14
Morgan St. (2-1) at Bethune Cookman (0-3) 4:00
With a win this could be one of the best starts for Morgan in decades. This is one of their only real chances at a road win. They need to play their best.
PICK: Morgan St. 19-10
Johns Hopkins (3-1) at Muhlenberg (1-2) 2:00
This could be the year for the Bluejays to take down the two time defending league champions.
PICK: Hopkins 24-20
