SMU vs. Houston - ESPN2, 8:00
Washington vs. 17 USC - ESPN, 9:00
Friday, October 9th
Southern Miss vs. Marshall - CBSSN, 7:00
NC State vs. Virginia Tech - ESPN, 8:00
The Wolfpack hasn't beaten anybody this season but Virginia Tech has really struggled of late.
Pick: NC State
Saturday, October 10th
Duke vs. Army - CBSSN, 12:00
New Mexico State vs. 14 Ole Miss - SEC Network, 12:00
Pick: Ole Miss
7 LSU vs. South Carolina - ESPN, 12:00
UTEP vs. FIU - ASN, 12:00
Middle Tennessee vs. Western Kentucky - ASN, 12:00
Pick: Western Kentucky
Illinois vs. 22 Iowa - ESPNU, 12:00
Maybe the Illini are better than we thought? Perhaps we could say the same for the Hawkeyes too. We won't see a lot of offense and that will benefit Iowa.
3 Baylor vs. Kansas - FS1, 12:00
10 Oklahoma vs. Texas - ABC, 12:00
I'd love to pick Texas here but they have been such a disaster thus far, it's far to bet on them right now.
Maryland vs. 1 Ohio State - BTN, 12:00
Seemingly every OSU game is getting interesting these days. That said, this upset won't happen.
Pick: Ohio State
Indiana vs. Penn State - ESPN2, 12:00
I think that Indiana is better than Penn State but with the status of QB Nate Sudfeld and RB Jordan Howard uncertain for this road game, give me the Lions.
Pick: Penn State
Tulane vs. Temple - ESPNEWS, 12:00
Central Michigan vs. Western Michigan - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Western Michigan
Virginia vs. Pittsburgh - ACC Network, 12:30
Miami (OH) vs. Ohio - ESPN3, 2:00
Massachusetts vs. Bowling Green - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Bowling Green
Rice vs. FAU - Fox College Sports, 2:30
Wake Forest vs. Boston College - FSN (ACC), 3:00
Pick: Boston College
Akron vs. Eastern Michigan - ESPN3, 3:00
Kent State vs. 24 Toledo - ESPN3, 3:00
Appalachian State vs. Georgia State - ESPN3, 3:30
Pick: Appalachian State
Ball State vs. Northern Illinois - ESPN3, 3:30
Pick: Northern Illinois
Georgia Tech vs. 6 Clemson - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
19 Georgia vs. Tennessee - CBS, 3:30
Maybe the Vols aren't that good after all.
Syracuse vs. South Florida - CBSSN, 3:30
Pick: South Florida
Navy vs. 15 Notre Dame - NBC, 3:30
Pick: Notre Dame
13 Northwestern vs. 18 Michigan - BTN, 3:30
If you enjoy defense, get settled in for this contest in the Big House. Both offenses will struggle to score but I think that Wolverine QB Jake Rudock will make some costly turnovers and power NW to a big win.
Wisconsin vs. Nebraska - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
I'm not a huge fan of either club but the Huskers haven't looked impressive this season at all.
Minnesota vs. Purdue - ESPN, 3:30
Iowa State vs. Texas Tech - FSN, 3:30
Pick: Texas Tech
Connecticut vs. UCF - ESPNU, 3:45
Oregon State vs. Arizona - FS1, 4:00
Troy vs. Mississippi State - SEC Network, 4:00
Pick: Mississippi State
Portland State vs. North Texas - 5:00
Pick: North Texas
Washington State vs. Oregon - Pac-12 Networks, 6:00
Louisiana Monroe vs. Tulsa - ESPN3, 6:00
25 Boise State vs. Colorado State - CBSSN, 7:00
Pick: Boise State
Texas State vs. Louisiana - ESPN3, 7:00
New Mexico vs. Nevada - Mountain West Network, 7:00
Pick: New Mexico
Arkansas vs. 8 Alabama - ESPN, 7:00
Alabama will win but this will be a one-score game. You heard it here.
Louisiana Tech vs. UTSA - ASN, 7:00
Pick: Louisiana Tech
21 Oklahoma State vs. West Virginia - ESPN2, 7:00
I'm smelling an upset in Morgantown. In a battle of a pair of high-powered offenses, I like the Mountaineers.
Pick: West Virginia
2 TCU vs. Kansas State - Fox, 7:30
If Kansas State can control the clock and take care of the football, this'll get wild.
11 Florida vs. Missouri - SEC Network, 7:30
Are the Gators poised for a letdown? Perhaps, but the Tigers couldn't score with my ex-wife right now.
East Carolina vs. BYU - ESPNU, 7:30
Miami (FL) vs. 12 Florida State - ABC, 8:00
This is the kind of win that Al Golden needs to return to Coral Gables next year. Brad Kaaya can keep it close but the Canes just don't have the depth.
Pick: Florida State
4 Michigan State vs. Rutgers - BTN, 8:00
Pick: Michigan State
San Jose State vs. UNLV - Mountain West Network, 9:00
Colorado vs. Arizona State - Pac-12 Networks, 10:00
Pick: Arizona State
23 California vs. 5 Utah - ESPN, 10:00
Utah has the offense to keep up with the Golden Bears but they also have a much better defense as well as the benefit of the home crowd.
Wyoming vs. Air Force - ESPN2, 10:15
Pick: Air Force
Utah State vs. Fresno State - CBSSN, 10:30
Pick: Utah State
San Diego State vs. Hawaii - Oceanic Time Warner PPV, 11:59
