It won't matter, the Tide will roll. LSU is THE most overrated team so far. The downside to that is Bama will get credit for beating a top-10 team and probably slide ahead of BSU in the BCS next week.

BSU started high in the polls and - unlike the few teams ranked ahead of them preseason - has beaten all comers handily. It doesn't matter if they do everything they have to do, they're gonna get bumped by at least one team that slipped up during the season. If not this week, it will happen after the CCGs.

Can't prove now if the inflated rankings of opponents for Bama, Neb, tOSU, etc are deserved or not. By season's end some will prove to be BS, some not. But in the meantime, any excuse will do to downgrade BSU and keep them out of the title game.

Whether the best team in the country plays BSU's schedule or plays Oklahoma's schedule has no bearing on the best team's actual ability, but it has everything to do with perception, which is how fortunes are decided. Long live the BCS.

Two upsets in this list... Baylor over OkState, and UNC over FL State.

Admittedly I'm a homer, but Stanford by 18 over Arizona. The game is in Palo Alto, and the Stanford defense will still be on a high from their domination of Washington. The kids now believe, and that makes a huge difference.

If you're a Stanford fan, my picking 'Zona should give you comfort. I've sucked so far this season on my upset picks.

I shudder every week when you pick OU....

November 1, 2010  03:51 PM ET

1. Oregon vs UW - Oregon. An upset is in their future, but not this week.
2. Auburn vs Chattanooga - Cam Newton pulls a Satchel Paige and sends his teammates off the field, beating Chattanooga by himself.
3. TCU at 5. Utah - TCU
4. Boise St. vs Hawaii - Boise
6. Alabama at 10. LSU - Tide struggles to score early, but pulls away after the half.
7. Nebraska at ISU - Huskers at home
8. Oklahoma at TAMU - upset Aggies
9. Wisconsin at Purdue - Wisconsin
12. Missouri at TT - Mizzou makes a statement for the BCS bowl committees.
13. Stanford vs 15. Arizona - Stanford wins a terrific game home. No one back east will anything besides the box score. (absurd 11PM Eastern kickoff)
14. Michigan St. vs Minnesota - Sparty rebounds nicely.
16. Iowa at Indiana - Hawkeyes
17. Oklahoma St. vs 21. Baylor - Baylor bandwagon!
18. Arkansas at 19. USCe [b]mild upset south carolina[b]
22. Virginia Tech vs GT - VaTech
23. Nevada at Idaho - Nevada
24. Florida St. vs UNC - FSU. UNC looked atrocious last week and deserved to lose to Wm & Mary
25. N.C. State at Clemson - NC State

Other Notables:
ASU at USC- USC. The collapse will begin the following week, at Arizona.
AFA at Army- Air Force
UCF at Houston- UCF
Northwestern at PSU - 400? Yes. The Wildcats are not as good as their record. Jo Pa gets the milestone in front of 100K faithful.

I ordinarily don't make picks. Usually I say that's because my namesake is known for its ability to predict the future. But I do see the appeal, whether I ultimately suck at it or not.

I think I'm right on this one though. But make sure the crow is warm next Saturday, just in case.

Arizona has a pretty good defense; I think it will be a close, well-played game. I give Stanford the edge at home in this one.

I agree; however UCLA made the 'Zona defense look kind of ordinary this week. Still, the Wildcats are a very good team and this one could go either way. It also depends on which quarterback plays for Arizona. They're both good, but Foles has a lot more experience.

You could use this for every game we play.

Hopefuly the needed week off gets a few key people 100% and we get back in business. Dont know.....
