It'll be 6 total games. We'll do the two top 25 matchups. then i'll pick my 2 at large games. then you can pick 2 as well. try to make them somewhat relevant to the national scope so everyone has some interest in them. Just start with the winners and we can go from there!
First the 2 matchups of top 25 teams:
Bama @ A&M- Bama
UCLA @ Neb- Neb
My 2 at large picks:
OSU @ Cal- OSU
Ole Miss @ Texas- Ole Miss

Alright, I'm bored enough to do this.
Top 25 Match-Ups:
#1 Alabama @ #6 Texas A&M - Alabama
#16 UCLA @ #23 Nebraska - UCLA
Your two at large picks:
#4 Ohio St. @ Cal - Ohio St
#25 Ole Miss @ Texas - Ole Miss
My two at large picks:
#20 Wisconsin @ Arizona St - Wisconsin
#19 Washington @ Illinois - Washington
As you can see, I have one change, UCLA over NEB, and added UW @ ASU and Wash @ Ill.
Now, it may seem like I'm going with easy wins here, but I'm betting that UW comes in under the 12.5 points they're currently favored by.
They've struggled against Pac 10/12 teams of late, including last year's surprising loss at Oregon St. The team's strengths play into each other (both strong on the ground, and with strong front 7s), but Arizona has the edge at QB.
In the end, I see UW's offensive line wearing down ASU just enough to escape with a 20-13 or 24-17 win.
As for Nebraska, I firmly believe they are the biggest frauds in the B1G. The defense that allowed 34 to Wyoming isn't showing many signs that its ready for the type of balanced attack the UCLA has. This could get ugly if Martinez struggles early, as he's been prone to do.
