Louisiana-Lafayette vs. Texas State - ESPN2, 8:00
Thursday, October 16th
Virginia Tech vs. Pittsburgh - ESPN, 7:30
Pick: Virginia Tech
20 Utah vs. Oregon State - Fox Sports 2 (Simulcast on Pac-12 Networks & local TV), 10:00
Friday, October 17th
Fresno State vs. Boise State - ESPN, 8:00
Pick: Boise State
Temple vs. Houston - ESPNU, 9:00
Saturday, October 18th
Tulane vs. UCF - ESPNU, 12:00
UTSA vs. Louisiana Tech - Fox Sports Networks, 12:00
Iowa vs. Maryland - ESPN2, 12:00
14 Kansas State vs. 11 Oklahoma - ESPN, 12:00
The Sooners won a closer one than I expected in Fair Park, and K-State will be ready to play as always.
Purdue vs. Minnesota - BTN, 12:00
Furman vs. South Carolina - SEC Network, 12:00
Pick: South Carolina
Western Kentucky vs. FAU - American Sports Network, 12:00
Pick: Western Kentucky
USF vs. Tulsa - ESPNEWS, 12:00
Syracuse vs. Wake Forest - Fox Sports Networks (ACC), 12:00
Virginia vs. Duke - ACC Network, 12:30
Western Michigan vs. Bowling Green - BCSN, 2:00
Pick: Bowling Green
Akron vs. Ohio - ESPN3, 2:00
Appalachian State vs. Troy - ESPN3, 3:00
Eastern Michigan vs. Massachusetts - ESPN3, 3:00
8 Michigan State vs. Indiana - ESPN, 3:30
Pick: Michigan State
NC State vs. Louisville - Fox Sports Networks (ACC), 3:30
24 Clemson vs. Boston College - ESPNU, 3:30
21 Texas A&M vs. 7 Alabama - CBS, 3:30
Is Alabama overrated? I'm not necessarily there yet, but they don't look like a title team right now. That said at home in Tuscaloosa, they should be able to take out the Aggies and Kenny Hill.
UCLA vs. California - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
Rutgers vs. 13 Ohio State - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
Pick: Ohio State
Kansas vs. Texas Tech - Fox Sports Networks, 3:30
Pick: Texas Tech
UAB vs. Middle Tennessee - Fox College Sports, 3:30
Pick: Middle Tennessee
Cincinnati vs. SMU - CBS Sports Network, 3:30
New Mexico vs. Air Force - Root Sports, 3:30
Pick: Air Force
Ball State vs. Central Michigan - ESPN3, 3:30
Pick: Ball State
Army vs. Kent State - ESPN3, 3:30
10 Georgia vs. Arkansas - SEC Network, 4:00
San Jose State vs. Wyoming - ESPN3, 4:00
15 Oklahoma State vs. 12 TCU - Fox Sports 1, 4:00
TCU had a win in Waco but got too comfortable. They better not sleep on the Pokes now.
New Mexico State vs. Idaho - ESPN3, 5:00
Miami (OH) vs. Northern Illinois - ESPN3, 5:00
Pick: Northern Illinois
25 Marshall vs. FIU - American Sports Network, 6:00
Colorado vs. 22 USC - Pac-12 Networks, 6:00
Tennessee vs. 3 Ole Miss - ESPN, 7:00
There really is no excuse for the Rebels to lose here.
Pick: Ole Miss
Georgia Tech vs. North Carolina - ESPNU, 7:00
Pick: Georgia Tech
Utah State vs. Colorado State - CBS Sports Network, 7:00
Pick: Colorado State
Southern Miss vs. North Texas - American Sports Network, 7:00
Pick: North Texas
Missouri vs. Florida - ESPN2, 7:00
The Tigers were a disgrace this past Saturday, but I think they'll get it together in the Swamp.
19 Nebraska vs. Northwestern - BTN, 7:30
The Big Ten is great, I think. Yeah, probably not.
Kentucky vs. LSU - SEC Network, 7:30
This Kentucky team is a quality one and a better one that I had thought. That said, even against a mediocre (by their standards) LSU club, it's still tough to go into Death Valley on a Saturday night and win.
Georgia State vs. South Alabama - ESPN3, 7:30
Pick: South Alabama
Washington vs. 9 Oregon - Fox Sports 1, 8:00
The Ducks got a big bounce-back victory against the Bruins last week in Pasadena and they should roll against a good Washington squad as they return home.
5 Notre Dame vs. 2 Florida State - ABC, 8:00
This should be a fun one considering all the off-the-field issues that are surrounding Jameis Winston, and rightfully so. This FSU isn't the same as last year's though and Notre Dame can make plays with Everett Golson and a tough defense. But even then, give me the 'Noles.
Pick: Florida State
Iowa State vs. Texas - Longhorn Network/Cyclones.tv, 8:00
Nevada vs. BYU - ESPN2, 10:15
Even without Taysom Hill, BYU should still beat Nevada.
23 Stanford vs. 17 Arizona State - ESPN, 10:30
The Cardinal need to rebound and their physicality will overwhelm the Sun Devils.
Hawaii vs. San Diego State - CBS Sports Network, 10:30
Pick: San Diego State
