9 Utah vs CSU - Utah by 28
10 Ohio State vs Purdue - tOSU by 24, good rebound game

Wow, lots of love for KSU. Baylor plays a lot like a run down version of NEB, and I think NEB did fairly well against KSU.

Oddly enough, you have a decent shot at getting the most correct this week.

QUOTE(#15):

Other than the QB position, the parrot doesn't see a lot of similarities. Most importantly for the K-State matchup, Baylor has nowhere near Nebraska's defensive speed. Plus, their O-line and receiving corps aren't that great. Parrot says that Nebraska will be able to assign a full time spy on Griffin.I got all this cool insight for the cost of two whole grain wafers. If this damn bird knows what it's squawking about, I've found a gold mine.

Will have to wait and see, but KSU really struggled agains TM when he ran when NEB has the ball.

MSU trap game at Northwestern. Persa is tough, a solid week to prepare..not saying they will pull it off but it will be close.

Oh and I'll take the Bucks to rebound from that debacle and hang 50 on the Purdonts.
