  • College Football Picks - Week 10

       November 02, 2006

    This week's picks come a day early due to the big Louisville/West Virginia (hey, doesn't that just sound wrong?) game tonight. Here we go:

    #3 West Virginia at #5 Louisville: It's a big week in Louisville. First this game and then the Breeders Cup. The house will be rockin'. Neither of these teams has played anyone. Seriously, look at their schedules. West Virginia has defeated the likes of Marshall, East Carolina & Connecticut, while Louisville has wins over powerhouses Temple, Kentucky & Middle Tennessee (not to be confused with Middle Earth). I was going to pick Louisville, but then I noticed that West Virginia has been beating their crapping teams way worse than Louisville has pounded their overmatched opponents. The pick: West Virginia.

    Penn State at #17 Wisconsin: In Stocco I trust. Even after a terrible half and the loss of P.J. Hill, QB John Stocco helped rally the Badgers to victory last weekend. Penn State is a hell of a lot better than Illinois, but Wisconsin is a hell of a lot better than they showed last week. The pick: Wisconsin.

    #13 LSU at #8 Tennessee: I think the Volunteers are the best one-loss team in the country. LSU has shown a distinct lack of offense against decent teams. Tennessee is a little more than decent. Expect LSU to score fewer than 13 points. The pick: Tennessee.

    #16 Boston College at #22 Wake Forest: Boston College has been playing like a team trying to prove they're underated. Wake Forest has been playing like a team trying to be in the Big East (Syracuse? Connecticut?). By all accounts, BC should win easily. But I just have a funny feeling about this one. The pick: Wake Forest.

    #18 Oklahoma at #21 Texas A&M: Oklahoma is probably distracted this week and they're thinking more about who is not playing than about who they're going to play. The only blemish on Texas A&M's record is a loss to Texas. As a member of the Big 12, they're probably not really very good. But they're good enough. The pick: Texas A&M.

    Hi Kris! Hope everyone is well. Big 10 looks a big ho-hum this week, but there are other games that will be good.

    The first of which is Louisville-WVA:
    I concur with your view here Kris. I would add one other thing for WVA. They did beat a decent, bowl bound Maryland team and beat them soundly.
    West Va by 10.

    Penn State vs Wisconsin:
    Penn State is due for a decent win. I think they get it this week. PSU by a touchdown.

    LSU - Tenn:
    Tennessee is a real good team. I can't stand them and hope they get killed, but that probably isn't going to happen. UT by 14.

    BC at Wake:
    Wake is overrated. They would be with a ranking of 50. BC by a bunch.

    Oklahoma vs A&M:
    I hate all teams Texas. It is physically impossible for me to take A&M. OU by 10.

    In other games of interest:
    Va Tech over Miami big.
    Texas over OK ST.

    Upsets this week:
    South Carolina over Arkansas
    Maryland over Clemson.

    Enjoy the games! Go Blue!

    this is either going to be a badgers blowout or penn state squeaking by. i hate to say it, but i have a feeling that PSU pulls it out. nittany lions by 3.

    another close one as tennessee gets the win at home. if it wasn't there, i'd be picking against them.

    wake for no good reason, other than i know a cute girl who went there.

    Oklahoma, O.K.

    oooh, I should have picked the South Carolina/Arkansas game. I agree with you themandownthehall on that one.
