Thursday, October 30th
2 Florida State vs. 25 Louisville - ESPN, 7:30
Louisville has looked good this year, but not that good.
Pick: Florida State
Troy vs. Georgia Southern - ESPNU, 7:30
Pick: Georgia Southern
Friday, October 31st
Tulsa vs. Memphis - ESPNU, 8:00
Cincinnati vs. Tulane - ESPN2, 8:00
Saturday, November 1st
Air Force vs. Army - CBS, 11:30 am
Pick: Air Force
Rice vs. FIU - American Sports Network, 12:00
UCF vs. Connecticut - CBS Sports Network, 12:00
Maryland vs. Penn State - ESPN2, 12:00
Wasn't Christian Hackenberg supposed to be good? Well he does have the talent and I think he'll show it against the Terps.
Pick: Penn State
23 East Carolina vs. Temple - ESPNEWS, 12:00
Pick: East Carolina
Wisconsin vs. Rutgers - ESPN, 12:00
24 Duke vs. Pittsburgh - ESPNU, 12:00
Northwestern vs. Iowa - BTN, 12:00
18 Oklahoma vs. Iowa State - Fox Sports 1, 12:00
Louisiana-Monroe vs. Texas A&M - SEC Network, 12:00
Pick: Texas A&M
Boston College vs. Virginia Tech - ACC Network, 12:30
The Hokies really aren't that good at all, hence their last place position in the Coastal, but they still should beat the Eagles at home.
Pick: Virginia Tech
North Carolina vs. Miami (FL) - ACC Network, 12:30
Washington vs. Colorado - Pac-12 Network, 1:00
Central Michigan vs. Eastern Michigan - ESPN3, 1:00
Pick: Central Michigan
Western Michigan vs. Miami (OH) - ESPN3, 2:30
Pick: Western Michigan
NC State vs. Syracuse - Fox Sports Networks (ACC), 3:00
The Wolfpack have looked terrible of late. At least teams struggle to score against the Orange.
Western Kentucky vs. Louisiana Tech - Fox Sports Networks, 3:00
Pick: Louisiana Tech
7 TCU vs. 20 West Virginia - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
So this has turned out to be a relatively big game in the Big 12. I have been impressed with Clint Trickett and the Mountaineers, but color me a believer in TCU.
Purdue vs. 15 Nebraska - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
Indiana vs. Michigan - BTN, 3:30
Well this isn't any fun.
BYU vs. Middle Tennessee - CBS Sports Network, 3:30
The sinking continues for the Cougars.
Pick: Middle Tennessee
Florida vs. 11 Georgia - CBS, 3:30
Maybe Florida can keep it close, but let's keep it real.
Virginia vs. Georgia Tech - ESPNU, 3:30
Pick: Georgia Tech
Houston vs. USF - ESPNEWS, 4:00
Kansas vs. 13 Baylor - Fox Sports 1, 4:00
Kentucky vs. Missouri - SEC Network, 4:00
This will be an interesting pick for me and I'll let you figure out why. Kentucky looked solid against Mississippi State at home and the Tigers are atrocious offensively right now.
Texas State vs. New Mexico State - AggieVision Pay-Per-View, 4:00
Pick: Texas State
USC vs. Washington State - Pac-12 Network, 4:30
Arkansas State vs. Idaho - ESPN3, 5:00
Pick: Arkansas State
South Alabama vs. Louisiana-Lafayette - ESPN3, 5:00
A key game in the Belt right here. These clubs are relatively even so I like the Cajuns at home with that homefield advantage.
New Mexico vs. UNLV - Root Sports, 5:30
Colorado State vs. San Jose State - CBS Sports Network, 7:00
Pick: Colorado State
3 Auburn vs. 4 Ole Miss - ESPN, 7:00
Ole Miss was a disappointment last week but it's tough to play in Tiger Stadium at night. But how did South Carolina stick with Auburn at Auburn? Give me the Rebels to get back on track.
Pick: Ole Miss
Old Dominion vs. Vanderbilt - ESPNU, 7:00
Arkansas vs. 1 Mississippi State - ESPN2, 7:15
Pick: Mississippi State
Texas vs. Texas Tech - Fox Sports 1, 7:30
Texas Tech can't stop anybody right now. The Horns get the win.
Tennessee vs. South Carolina - SEC Network, 7:30
The Gamecocks showed some life this past weekend, and they'll get a win this weekend.
Pick: South Carolina
Stanford vs. 5 Oregon - Fox, 7:30
This Cardinal offense is pitiful, so it's going to be tough for them in Eugene. They better hope their defense is clicking.
Oklahoma State vs. 9 Kansas State - ABC, 8:00
If the Wildcats could make a field goal, they'd be undefeated. They'll host the Pokes in Manhattan, and Okie State looked pitiful these past two weeks.
Pick: Kansas State
Illinois vs. 16 Ohio State - ABC, 8:00
Pick: Ohio State
10 Notre Dame vs. Navy - CBS, 8:00
Pick: Notre Dame
Southern Miss vs. UTEP - Fox College Sports, 8:00
12 Arizona vs. 25 UCLA - ESPN, 10:30
UCLA struggled to beat Colorado, and were taken to overtime nonetheless. Even in the Rose Bowl I've got the Wildcats.
California vs. Oregon State - Pac-12 Network, 10:30
San Diego State vs. Nevada - CBS Sports Network, 10:30
Wyoming vs. Fresno State - ESPN2, 10:45
17 Utah vs. 14 Arizona State - Fox Sports 1, 11:00
Maybe the Aztecs are actually legitimate? They could've pulled a typical ASU last week but they took care of business against U-Dub, and I like them here.
Pick: Arizona State
Utah State vs. Hawaii - Oceanic Cable Pay-Per-View, 11:00
Pick: Utah State
