Washington State vs. 25 Stanford - ESPN, 9:00

Fresno State vs. UNLV - CBS Sports Network, 10:00
Pick: Fresno State
Saturday, October 11th
Texas vs. 11 Oklahoma - ABC, 12:00
The Sooners are in need of a bounce-back victory and they will take Texas to town in Dallas.
13 Georgia vs. 23 Missouri - CBS, 12:00
This game should decide the SEC East. Mizzou will have the homefield advantage but even without Todd Gurley now, I think Georgia is the stronger club.
Illinois vs. Wisconsin - ESPN2, 12:00
West Virginia vs. Texas Tech - Fox Sports 1, 12:00
Pick: Texas Tech
Tulsa vs. Temple - ESPNEWS, 12:00
1 Florida State vs. Syracuse - ESPN, 12:00
Florida State will win, but I get some trap game suspicions here.
Pick: Florida State
Rice vs. Army - CBS Sports Network, 12:00
Middle Tennessee vs. Marshall - Fox Sports Networks, 12:00
Louisiana-Monroe vs. Kentucky - SEC Network, 12:00
Northwestern vs. Minnesota - BTN, 12:00
How about the Wildcats with two impressive wins in a row? Not too shabby.
Cincinnati vs. Miami (FL) - Fox Sports Networks (ACC), 12:00
Pick: Miami (FL)
Duke vs. 22 Georgia Tech - ACC Network, 12:30
Paul Johnson has got something cooking in Atlanta.
Pick: Georgia Tech
Buffalo vs. Eastern Michigan - ESPN3, 1:00
Bowling Green vs. Akron - ESPN3, 2:00
Arkansas State vs. Georgia State - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Arkansas State
Bowling Green vs. Ohio - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Bowling Green
Massachusetts vs. Kent State - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Kent State
New Mexico State vs. Troy - ESPN3, 3:00
Western Michigan vs. Ball State - ESPN3, 3:00
Pick: Ball State
2 Auburn vs. 3 Mississippi State - CBS, 3:30
In smashing Texas A&M, the Bulldogs and Dak Prescott showed they are a strong club. Picking against Auburn again may be a bad call but I'm feeling Mississippi State.
Pick: Mississippi State
VMI vs. Navy - CBS Sports Network, 3:30
12 Oregon vs. 18 UCLA - Fox, 3:30
Both are coming off disappointing home conference losses, so both need a rebound. I have more confidence in the Ducks getting in done on the road.
9 TCU vs. 5 Baylor - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
TCU should that they can bring it as they did against Oklahoma, and this Baylor club is not as strong as they are a year ago. The Horned Frogs will get another big conference win.
8 Michigan State vs. Purdue - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
Pick: Michigan State
North Carolina vs. 6 Notre Dame - NBC, 3:30
With Florida State next week, this may be a prime example of a trap game. Notre Dame will win closer than the experts think.
Pick: Notre Dame
Boston College vs. NC State - Fox Sports Networks (ACC), 3:30
Pick: NC State
Louisville vs. Clemson - ESPNU, 3:30
Clemson could use this game, and they'll get it.
North Texas vs. UAB - American Sports Network, 3:30
Pick: North Texas
Toledo vs. Iowa State - Cyclones.tv, 3:30
Pick: Iowa State
Liberty vs. Appalachian State - ESPN3, 3:30

Central Michigan vs. Northern Illinois - ESPN3, 5:00
Pick: Northern Illinois
Idaho vs. Georgia Southern - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Georgia Southern
7 Alabama vs. Arkansas - ESPN, 6:00
Arkansas has played well against tough competition but there is no way Alabama falls again this week.
Washington vs. California - Pac-12 Networks, 6:00
Penn State vs. Michigan - ESPN2, 7:00
The woes continue for the Maize and Blue.
Pick: Penn State
Houston vs. Memphis - CBS Sports Network, 7:00
You better not sleep on this Memphis ballclub.
19 East Carolina vs. USF - ESPNU, 7:00
Pick: East Carolina
FIU vs. UTSA - Fox College Sports, 7:00
Charleston Southern vs. Vanderbilt - Fox Sports Networks (SEC), 7:30
LSU vs. Florida - SEC Network, 7:30
LSU is not as bad as they looked at Auburn on Saturday, and they'll show it in the Swamp.
Old Dominion vs. UTEP - American Sports Network, 8:00
Pick: Old Dominion
Connecticut vs. Tulane - ESPNEWS, 8:00
3 Ole Miss vs. 14 Texas A&M - ESPN, 9:00
The Rebels deserve all the credit they can get for beating Alabama, but in a new week on the round, they will drop their first one in College Station.
Pick: Texas A&M
Air Force vs. Utah State - ESPNU, 10:15
Pick: Air Force
USC vs. 10 Arizona - ESPN2, 10:30
This Arizona club is for real and USC will find that out the hard way in Tucson.
Colorado State vs. Nevada - CBS Sports Network, 10:30
Pick: Colorado State
