J Will will be handling the previewrooskis for this newly arrived college football season. His picks are waiting for your ridicule. So do so in the comments.
College football started with a bang last weekend and Florida State and Miami ended the week with one of the best shootouts in that rivalry’s history. Overall I did pretty good with my picks but the scores were kind of off.
Game Of The Week
#3 USC Trojans VS #8 Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State comes into this game looking for revenge after last year’s loss to USC led by quarterback Terelle Pryor. True freshman Matt Barkley leads USC to the Horseshoe and all eyes will be on him and how he runs the USC offense. The key to this game is Pryor because Barkley has so many skill players to work with, he doesn’t have to do as much. The only way the Buckeyes win is if Pryor has 100 yards rushing and 200 yards passing but, I don’t think it’s going to happen.
USC 28 Ohio State 14
Michigan Over #18 Notre Dame
Notre Dame has been getting a lot press over their win against Nevada, but Michigan was impressive too. I think this game is going to be a close game, but I think Michigan’s defense will make the plays Notre Dame defense won’t.
Michigan 28 Notre Dame 24
