Just as things are starting to shake out in our official pick'em contest, sponsored by Sooner Legends Inn And Suites, we're also starting to see some separation here on the Friday Locks. Boosted by a 2-0 record last week JTE has risen to two games above .500 -while 0-2 performances by myself and OnlyOne have set us back considerably. Hopefully this will be a better week. 

 

 

JTE
Last Week: 2-0


 Season 7-5

Boise State (-32) @ Colorado State     

That's a lot of points to give, but I think Boise can cover.  They burned me earlier this year on a similar "lock" of mine, but I just can't help myself.    Oregon         (-15.5) vs. Arizona State Not a believer in ASU, especially on the road.  Oregon wins big.    
OnlyOneOU
Last Week: 0-2  Season: 6-6

Oklahoma St. (-7.5) vs Texas        

Oklahoma brought a very potent air attack to Dallas and exposed the Longhorns. Okie State has nearly the same capability with the Weeden/Blackmon duo and will look to continue the trend against Texas. With the excuses flying there is still no way this secondary is capable of slowing down the Cowboy air assault.    

Clemson  (-8.5) vs Maryland    

This has upset city written all over it. Tajh Boyd is coming off an injury last week against Boston College but if he is even 75% this is a slim line considering the other play maker in Sammy Watkins. I have been a huge fan of this kid and he brings the kitchen sink to the table as a do it all WR. Boyd will play on Saturday and has been known to play through injuries before. Clemson takes this one and goes 7-0 for the first time in 11 years.

CC Machine
Last Week: 0-2     Season: 5-7
South Carolina        (-3) vs. Mississippi Stats South Carolina booted a cancer on their team in quarterback Stephen Garcia and are now rallying behind new starter Connor Shaw. Look for the Gamecocks to cover.  Georgia Tech (-7) vs. Virginia The Yellow Jackets are averaging nearly 47 points per game with a rushing attack that grinds out 360 yards per game. I'm taking GT and the points.
