Oddly, it seems that the further the season goes along, and the more I should've learned from each team...my picks keep getting further and further from the truth. Last week I went an even 3 & 3 after Miami lost at home to GT, FSU lost on the road to Wake, and Virginia took their winning streak to 6 games with a win over UConn. That takes my record to 40 of 58 on the year, or 69%.

This weekend provides it's own obstacles...with Virginia visiting Maryland, Wake going to Navy, and Miami coming to Tallahassee. Let's see how I do.

Army @ Georgia Tech = GT

Central Michigan @ Clemson = Clemson. Tommy Bowden has entered his normal bucket of hot water at mid-season. He's never failed to pull out a win when he needs one in the past, and I expect no different this week, especially considering he's facing a Central Michigan team whos 4 wins have come against teams that have a combined win ratio of just under 36%.

Wake Forest @ Navy = Wake Forest. Should be a good game, and presents itself as the ACC's most probable upset possibility of the week with a win by Navy.

Miami @ FSU = FSU. It's not the game of the year this year, but the fans of these 2 teams don't know that. Regardless of the record or the ranks...this one always proves to be a good fight.

NC State @ East Carolina = ECU

Virginia @ Maryland = Maryland. This one could go either way. When compared on paper, both teams look to be about equal. I'm calling a win for the Terrapins due to an extra week of practice thanks to coming off an off week.

So there you have it. That's what I think. How about you?
