J Will will be handling the previewrooskis for the college football season. His picks are awaiting your ridicule. So do so in the comments.
Washington vs USC was the talk of the weekend as the Huskies upset the Trojans 13-10. Once again, I got my upset special pick and I only missed on the USC game.
Game Of The Week
#9 Miami Hurricanes VS #11 Virginia Tech Hokies
Welcome to the national spotlight Miami. And for Randy Shannon, this is probably the biggest game of his coaching career. The Hurricanes are led by Jacory Harris and a host of skill players that Virginia Tech will have to account for. The Hokies have made their third appearance on my game of the week and their defense is going to have to come up big this weekend. If Virginia Tech can get their running game going they will have a chance but I think Miami will be too much.
Miami 31 VT 20
South Carolina Gamecocks over #4 Mississippi Rebels
The Rebels have a lot to prove tonight as they are on the road against the Gamecocks, who should have a chip on their shoulder. South Carolina always come through with wins on Thursday night and I expect the same thing to happen tonight. I expect Carolina to play good defense and limit what Jevan Snead and his offense can do.
South Carolina 24 Ole Miss 21
#1 Florida VS Kentucky – Could be close until the 3rd quarter depending if Lane is still in the mind of Meyer. 49-20 Florida
#3 Alabama VS Arkansas – Tough game from Arkansas. Bama’s defense will be too strong. Bama 34-20
#5 Penn State VS Iowa – Night game for the Nittany Lions so Iowa doesn’t have a chance. 41-17 Penn State
#6 California VS Oregon – Almost my upset special but Jahvid Best will be the X-factor. 28-24 Cal
#7 LSU VS Mississippi State – I won’t be shocked if this game goes down to the final minutes. 34-28 LSU
#8 Boise State VS Bowling Green – Should be over by halftime. 49-21 Boise State
#12 USC VS Washington State – Hopefully USC will show up. 56-14 USC
#13 Ohio State VS Illinois – Look for Illinois to get blown out. Ohio State 38-7
#14 Cincinnati VS Fresno State – This is going to be a good game but the Bearcats will win. 31-14 Cincy
#15 TCU VS Clemson – I wanted to pick Clemson but Kyle Parker turns the ball over too much. TCU will win because of that. 24-23 TCU
#16 Oklahoma State VS Grambling State – Why are these two playing each other? 56-10 Oklahoma State
#17 Houston VS Texas Tech – Lots of offense in this game. Houston comes out on top. 49-45 Houston
#18 Florida State VS South Florida – Should be a good game, but FSU will pull away in the 4th. 34-28 FSU
#19 BYU VS Colorado State – BYU should win because of their offense but they could still be hurt from last week. 41-24 BYU
#20 Kansas VS Southern Miss – Close, close game but Kansas will win on a late TD. 38-31 Kansas
#21 Georgia VS Arizona State – Look for Georgia to drop 50 on Arizona State. 52-17 Georgia
#22 North Carolina VS Georgia Tech – Georgia Tech looks like a different team this year and the Tar Heels defense will shut them down. 28-17 UNC
#23 Michigan VS Indiana – Should be a blowout by the end of the 3rd quarter. 45-17 Michigan
#24 Washington VS Stanford – Look for Stanford to pull the upset. 31-20 Stanford
#25 Nebraska VS UL Lafayette – Should be over by halftime. 49-10 Nebraska
