We've got a pretty interesting race shaping up between JTE and OnlyOneOU who has moved to within one game of first place on the backs of the Houston Cougars. Why then, would he move away from them this week. He didn't! Check out our locks after the jump and tell us who you would lock in as well.  

 

JTE
Last Week: 0-2


 Season 14-10

  Kansas (+24) vs. Missouri 

Am I insane?  Betting ON Kansas?!?  Call it a gut feeling.  It's a hated rivalry and possibly the last time these two meets maybe ever.  I just have a feeling Turner Gill has his kids ready to play.  If you can say one positive thing about KU's season, it's that they haven't quit on Gill.

 Honestly, I wouldn't be stunned to see KU win outright so if you're giving me 24 points I'll take 'em.    

 USC (-14) vs. UCLA Little bit of a let down game for USC, but even with that I still think they've got enough, at home, to get past UCLA pretty easily.    
OnlyOneOU
Last Week: 2-0 Season: 13-11

       Houston    (-3) vs Tulsa  

+I'm taking Houston once again. They have an unstoppable offense. Giving them a 3 point line simply isn't enough even with G.J. Kinne vs Case Keenum. I'll take Houston all day in C-USA with such a slim margin.    

    Michigan St. (-6.5) vs Northwestern

The Spartan defense had made a believer out of me. Couple that with Cousins' ability to air the ball out and they can compete with anyone. I think Sparty will be too much to handle on both sides of the ball and wins comfortably.    

CC Machine
Last Week: 1-1     Season: 10-14

Boise State   (-34.5) against Wyoming


This sounds more like a spread that Jordan would attack but here I am right in the middle of it. Wyoming is a decent team at 7-3 but Boise is still trying to make a statement. Big Blue wins and covers.  Virginia Tech  (-4.5) at Virginia  Battle for state pride and while I think it'll be an entertaining game I also think the Hokies win by at touchdown.
