J Will will be handling the previewrooskis for the college football season. His picks are awaiting your ridicule. So do so in the comments.
Week 4 ended with two big statements from Virginia Tech and Oregon as both got big wins. And every Gator fan in America was holding their breath when Tim Tebow went down. As for my picks, I got my upset special but missed on a couple games.
Game Of The Week
#4 LSU Tigers VS #18 Georgia Bulldogs
LSU goes into Athens Saturday in a classic trap game with Florida lurking next week. After Mississippi State gave LSU all they could handle, the Tigers need a statement game to prove to themselves and the nation that they are for real. Georgia needs to get a big play early so the crowd can stay in the game because they are going need them in a game like this. In the end I see Georgia QB Joe cox throwing a costly interception and LSU driving for the winning score.
LSU 38 Georgia 34
#24 California Over #7 USC Trojans
I think Cal needs to win this game badly after last week’s performance and I think they are going to be hype. With the Stafon Johnson’s weightlifting accident still on USC’s mind, I think Cal will take a early lead and USC will storm back but it won’t be enough.
California 20 USC 17
