Friday Locks Takes A Look At USC/Notre Dame

New, 2 comments

It was bound to happen and it absolutely did. The bottom fell out on our picks and we came crashing down hard last week with a combined 1-8 record. Now we have to pick ourselves up and move on to hopefully another good run on picks.

This week Jordan and Matt are on opposite sides of the USC/Notre Dame rivalry and Rich is calling a Big XII upset. Tell is where you agree or disagree with our picks in the comments section below.


Last Week












Stanford (-5.5) vs. UCLA - I know the Cardinal burned me last week, but I'm willing to forgive them.  Plus, I think UCLA is a bit of a fraud (or at the least overrated) so give me Stanford to cover at home.

Notre Dame (-3) vs. USC - Go Irish

Northwestern (-12.5) vs. Minnesota - After falling all the way out of the Top 25, I think NU gets back on track at home this weekend.


TCU (+7) vs Okie St. - We all know that the Horned Frogs have a top tier secondary. Combine that with the lack of arm strength for JW Walsh and a perfect storm is brewing. OSU is still a prentender at this point in my opinon and TCU will expose that further than any other team has so far.

LSU (-8) vs Ole Miss - Regardless of who is on the field personnel wise, Les Miles seems to always have his team ready to go. Ole Miss has struggled to the point of falling out of the top 25 after signing a solid recruiting class for this season. There is still work to be done though is Ole Miss wants to be in the mix of the SEC. Give me the Tigers to cover.

Utah (+4) vs Arizona - This pick worries me a tad honestly. Utah is coming off a major upset of Stanford. They could be one of the most underrated teams in the nation... at least that is what I'm banking on!


Wyoming (-7) vs. Colorado State - Colorado State is 97th in the nation in scoring defense. Seven points is more than enough for Wyoming to get the cover.

Houston (+9.5) vs. BYU - The Cougars are quietly off to a 5-0 start to the season. Playing at home I like them getting that many points.

USC (+3) at Notre Dame - I find myself on the opposite side of Jordan in this game but USC is a new team in the absence of Lane Kiffin. I like them to be in position to pull the upset in South Bend.
