Another week’s worth of picks:
Northwestern 34, Penn State 13: It is hard to get a feel of where Penn State is. I don’t think they’re at the same level as the Wildcats.
Virginia Tech 23, North Carolina 14: A couple of great defenses will square off. I think V-Tech will elevate their level of play as they return to ACC play.
Stanford 19, Arizona 17: The Cardinal wins by a hair at home.
Oklahoma 45, Texas Tech 35: No upset, but it will be close.
TCU 27, Iowa State 17: Another win for one of the best mascots in college football.
LSU 24, Florida 17: A really good game from the SEC. LSU will have to bring their A-game to Gainesville.
South Carolina 32, Georgia 28: Perhaps an even better SEC game. Georgia’s offense vs. the Gamecock’s defense is a great match up.
Notre Dame 21, Miami 20: The Irish sneak by underrated Miami.
Ohio State 29, Nebraska 21: Braxton Miller is going to gain some yards on Nebraska’s struggling defense.
West Virginia 59, Texas 35: I bet Geno Smith has another field day.
Oregon 44, Washington 33: A very nice QB match up here.
