New rule, stay away from road favorites. There are few gathering that compares when College Game Day comes to the west coast. These Ducks were up early, the sun wasn't even up yet! The Ducks and their duckling are ready to go for their prime time game in both teams PAC 10 opener. Watching the sunrise on College Game is a unique experience. Having went to football camp in Eugene and experienced the small town atmosphere where a kid said, all they have to do is drink and RUN! You know the football players can come close to be coming demigods. Oregon comes in with the Nations top offense. At home, that crowd will be rowdy, loud and ready for a battle. 6 points seems about right. This game will be close but that Oregon offense will hit a few big plays and will pull away in the 4th quarter. This game will top off an excellent Saturday and led to a even better NFL Sunday. PICKS PLEASE! N DID U SEE THOSE NEON YELLOW SHOES!!
“Sleep is over rated” “Never complain about the weather” Oregon coach Chip Kelly on his experience over seas with the American Military.
The Chippewas come in with a defense that has looked bad and ranked near the bottom of nation. Northwestern comes in with a top 20 offense and will look to punish the secondary of Minnesota. Home field means more in the college game, but the Wildcats are looking for a 5-0 start and being on top the Big Ten.
Miami QB Jacory Harris and coach Randy Shannon looked great against Ohio State but couldn't finish. Looked for the Canes to roll on the Tigers. Clemson can score a little bit, being ranked 17th in the nation. But Miami defense has been solid. They hung with Ohio Sate for the whole game. The 11th ranked defense in the nation will put a clamp on anything the Tigers try to do. Miami in a route.
Somebody moved the line. Having opened at -5. Baylor is now 8.5 and Bodog has it at -9.5. Thats a lot of points. Baylor looks solid on both sides of the ball. Baylor is ranked in the top 30's in passing yards and points against. I like the line move and I see it as a great sign for Baylor at home. Baylor in a route!
I know I made a new rule, but there are always exceptions. Maybe not, The Rebels, come in having stumbled against season opener Jacksonville State and Vanderbilt. The Wildcats will keep this game close, but the home crowd and the hard hitting will wear on Kentucky. Mississippi pulls away late.
8 points for a talented Florida team is not that much. This game will be decided late and probably by a field goal. Bama at home. Alabama come in over rated if the Line is damn near 10 points. Florida might be the reason the line is so much. 8 points for Urban Meyer and his talented and quick team is way too much. And new QB, Tebow lite, I love this pick!
Michigan State +3
The Spartans at home, getting points, easy money. But the only thing lacking in Wisconsin is the passing game. Look for the crowd to get loud, disrupt the snap counts and make it tough for the Badgers.
NC State +4
Wolfpack QB Russell Wilson is off to a great start. NC State ranked 19th in passing but near the bottom in rushing yards. Tyrod Taylor might get loose a few times but the talent surrounding him and the V-Tech defense will not contain the Wolfpack offense. Close game but mistakes will hurt the Hookies and the Pack will pull away late.
Boston College + 3
Somebody on game day said the Notre Dame defense looks like a HIGH SCHOOL team. How is BC a home dog? Notre Dame's teams are always over hyped, but the odds makers always look to entice action and this spread will do exactly that! BC by a few scores.
UPSET ALERTS: Alabama, Oklahoma, Michigan, Virgnia Tech,
It's not a game, it's a FIGHT! The Longhorns have everything to prove in coming into the The Red River clash of BIG 12 teams. The Bruins put it on the Horns last week. They will pumped to prove that was not a sign of things to come and will at least make this Red River Rivlary game competitive as always. OK by a late field goal.

Florida at Alabama
The Battle for the Command In Chiefs Trophy
