My Picks:
1 Alabama at 10 Arkansas - Bama by 14
2 Ohio State vs Eastern Michigan - tOSU by 40. For the love of god, play away from home-8 home games would be a giant SOS hit in a fair world.
3 Boise State vs 24 Oregon State - BSU by 10
4 TCU at Southern Methodist - TCU by 14
5 Oregon at Arizona State - Ducks by 7
6 Nebraska vs South Dakota State - Go SDSU.... But it won't happen, Huskers by 40
7 Texas vs UCLA - Texas by 28
8 Oklahoma at Cincinnati - OU by 21 in the continuance of the OU sine wave season
9 Florida vs Kentucky - UF by 21
11 Wisconsin vs Austin Peay - WISC by 35
12 South Carolina at 17 Auburn - Auburn at home by 3 (can't really call it an upset)
13 Utah vs San Jose State - Utah by 21
14 Arizona vs California - Arizona by 7
15 LSU vs West Virginia - LSU by 21, the Big East stinks on ice
16 Stanford at Notre Dame - Stanford by 3 but wouldn't be suprised either way here....
18 Iowa vs Ball State - Iowa by 21
19 Miami at Pittsburgh - Thurday delight. Miami by 7, the Big East stinks on ice
20 USC at Washington State - USC by 21
21 Michigan vs Bowling Green - Michigan by 10
23 Penn State vs Temple - Close to an upset, PSU by 7
25 Michigan State vs Northern Colorado - MSU (cardiac kids) big- by 35

Other notables:
Fresno at Ole Miss : Should be a great game, Fresno by 7
Utah State at SDSU : SDSU by 10
Nevada at BYU : Nevada by 14, loving rooting against BYU now that they are leaving the MWC
UNC at Rutgers : UNC by 7, the Big East stinks on ice

And this wasn't included...BUT

Miss State over UGA. Will be right one of these weeks.....

September 20, 2010  07:37 PM ET

You better believe it's not for the faint of heart, Michigan has Bowling coming to The Big House, I can't take another 4th quarter like last Saturday, build a big lead then almost let it get away to a cupcake.

Bowling Green does have a few decent players. If I were a MICH fan I would be really worried about a QB injury.

May be very hard hitting. The season is pretty much over for the loser.

USC is the only school that has played 3 road games in 4 weeks. Another reason they should be #1 instead of being behind 19 pretenders in the rankings. 3-0 teams ranked behind 1-1 teams!?!?!? What's next? Dogs and cats living together?

Although this is sarcasm SU does have a good point-3 road games this early will only help the Trojans later in the season. For all the Oregon and U of A talk USC still has the most talented group of bodies in the PAC-10. If they can come together as a team they will be scary good.

Even if the talent kicks in I believe the Trojans will have 4th quarter problems come November due to a lack of depth. Besides, with a new coaching staff that's a mighty big "if".

On the other hand, Arizona (#14) has played at a level much closer to BSU and TCU (ranked in the top 5) than #15-20 teams like USC. Just saying, if someone in the Pac-10 is getting screwed in the rankings, USC should get in line.

I'm glad you picked up the sarcasm because I was ready to pounce.

QUOTE(#19):

Don't apologize to me, sir. Alabama is definitely the smarter pick.

I do think Bama is not really built for a comeback, so if ARK can get some turnovers/ST plays/whatever and get up enough to where Bama has to pass then the Hogs can take it. Just think the above is very unlikely and that unless ARK does jump up then they will get worn down fairly quickly.
