Well this week certainly makes up for the boredom that was last week.
5. Cripple Fight 08: Michigan Wolverines at Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Hey it's cripple fight time. I've already gone over this, they both suck. This could be the difference between making a bowl game or not making a bowl game. So I guess its saving your program from some embarrasment. The Pick: Tie, they both suck.
4. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Virginia Tech Hokies
The Yellow Jackets picked up a huge 3 point win over BC last week. If they could somehow beat whiny Glennon and the Hokies then they put themselves in the ACC driver seat. However, it will be Tyrod to the rescue as he will lead the Hokies to their first solid win of the season. The Pick: VT by 3
3. Wisconsin Badgers at Fresno St. Bulldogs
Oh my god oh my god oh my god, Wisconsin scheduled an out of conference game against a team that has the potential to win more than 5 games in a season. This has got to be the toughest out of conference opponent they have scheduled this decade. So naturally just to annoy me they will win by some stupid late 4th quarter turnover. The Pick: Sconsin 4.
2. Georgia Bulldogs at South Carolina Gamecocks
DOCTOR Lou thinks the Gamecocks have the best defense in the South Eastern Conference and that they are going to beat Georgia this weekend. I doubt he changed his mind after they lost to Vandy, because he's senile. Let's just say Doctor Lou is going to be wrong like always. The Pick: Bulldogs by 13.
1. Ohio St. Buckeyes at Southern California Trojans
I think the fact that USC is favored by double digits is a bit ridiculous. Vegas is begging for you to take the Buckeyes. And well, since I picked them to win the National Title (and because I hope I somehow give them a voodoo hate jinx) I will pick them to beat the Trojans. I imagine that Beanie was healthy enough to play last weekend but they opted not to. And I imagine that he will have a big weekend this week. Either way it's nice to see teams actually schedule huge out of conference games. The Pick: tOSU by 3.
South Florida vs. Kansas is obviously amongst the biggest 5 games of the weekend. I just missed it somehow because I'm a moron. Anyway either team that wins picks up a potentially valuable bowl kicker at the end of the year. Despite their OT win last weekend, I'm going with South Florida at home.
Oh, And... Go USC.
