It was very difficult, but I laid off the Hawaii/SJ St game last night and I'm glad I did. What a wacky 2nd half that would have had me cheering after Hawaii scored their 3rd unanswered TD only to have the xtra point blocked, and ran the other way for a 2pt score. Then when they could have sealed the victory with a late FG, they get this blocked as well only to allow the Spartans to march down for a final and decisive winning score. Those who backed San Jose----congrats!
Todays Card is looking very strong. I hope it works out for myself as well as all of you.
Georgia Tech -7 I just like the matchup here. I expect a 3 TD victory by the Yellow Jackets!
W. Michigan -1.5 too much Alex Carder in this one!!
Nevada -29 (Top Play) Oh my, New Mexico is coming to town at 0-5 with absolutely nothing to play for. Their coach and athletic director have already been fired. Nevada has a very strong DF as seen last week, keeping the UNLV squad off the scoreboard. I wouldn't be surprised to see another shutout here. Nevada 49-0
LSU -17 (Top Play)....Many of you are worried about this BIG number and in years past, you would have a legit reason to be concerned. However, Tenn is riddled with injuries including the loss of starting QB Tyler Bray. LSU DF is sick and will be in the Tenn backfield all day long. LSU covers the number 35-10
Oklahoma -36 (Top Play) ...If Georgia tech and Ok St can score over 65 points, Can't Oklahoma match at least that? I think so, add in a top 10 DF and you have a 65-14 score
Florida St/Duke OVER 56.5 ...the scorekeeper is gonna need some help in this one. I think this one becomes an up and down affair. My prediction.....49-34
South Carolina -3 ...I think momentum can carry over from game to game and here, South Carolina is rolling after last weeks woodshed beating of Kentucky. With Garcia gone and QB Connor Shaw at the helm, look for South Carolina to continue rolling. Miss St barely beat a really bad UAB team last week....the same UAB team that got crushed by Tulane a month earlier 49-10. I don't think this one will be close. South Carolina 30-10
Arizona St +14 ....Upset play of the day. Arizona St DF is gonna be swarming. I see this one being decided by a FG
SMU -3.5 (Top Play) ....Love June Jones and SMU at home in a revenge game. UCF has won the last 3 contests, today SMU wins in a low scoring affair. 21-10
Temple -21 (Top Play) ...Buffalo is absolutely horrible on offense and today they travel to Temple who is giving up an average of only 11 points per game. This one is a no brainer. Temple rolls 34-7
Clemson -8 ...clemson's DF is undoubtably tough and stingy, couple that with QB Sophmore sensation Tajh Boyd and you have a nice easy cover...predicted score 34-14
South Florida -7.5 (Top Play)...Revenge game here for USF. This team is fired up after getting smoked by Pitt 2 weeks ago. Uconn is very overmatched here and it will show. This one will be over by half time. USF rolls 35-14
Good luck to everyone on saturday
