My apologies for the delays in posting this week. The ole travel schedule hasn't been kind but we're doing what we can. As far as the Friday Locks go...how can you not like Texas against the Cowboys?

I'll go ahead and grab FSU and the 2.0 over Miami.  I also have about as much interest in watching this game as I do in getting a bikini wax.

I'll side with Vegas and take Arkansas and the two points at home over LSU.  Soo wee pig or something.  Bielma's kinda the forgotten coach in the SEC; a win over the Bayou Bengals would change that.

Ohio State rolls Minnesota by more than the 12. The state of Minnesota gave us Bob Dylan and Prince, but neither of them can tackle a quarterback that I know of.  (Although admit it, you'd want to know what both their custom uniforms would look like.)

Texas (-2.5) vs Oklahoma St. - I said earlier in the season that the Cowboys wouldn't win another game after losing to TCU. Simply put, I'm sticking to my guns on this one.

Utah (-7.5) vs Stanford - The Cardinal has not fared well when playing a ranked opponent. Unfortunately their opponent this weekend happens to fall inside the top 25 and I believe they suffer the same fate yet again.

Oklahoma (off) vs Texas Tech - Yes, I know I have been warned and even said it's not wise to take your own team as Friday lock. However, as a pick em, this one is too good to pass on. With a porous defense, I think a heavy dose of the rushing attack propels the Sooners to a win.

TCU over Kansas 31-10 (+28.5). This game will be really cold and boring. TCU will not be sharp, but it doesn't matter. They will overwhelm the Jayhawks, but will not cover. 

FSU over Miami 41-24 (-2). I'm not seeing why the line is this close. I guess Vegas sees this as a potential upset. I don't think FSU will look that good in the game (they haven't looked great all season). In the end the talent difference and the coaching difference will lead to a Seminole victory. FSU appears to be a near lock for the playoffs. 

Ohio State over Minnesota 38-21 (-12). I'm a firm believer that Ohio State will find its way into the playoffs this season. Lots of people see this as a trap game, but JT Barrett continues to play at an elite level and this game will cement him as a heisman finalist.

TCU (-28.5) at Kansas - I'll take the fat spread please! Gary Patterson is trying to find a way to fend off the surging  Baylor Bears in the playoff standings. He'll be out for blood and will want to score a ton of points on Saturday.

Texas (-2.5) at Oklahoma State - One of these teams is going bowling and one isn't. The winner of this game will most likely determine that.

Florida State (-2) at Miami - If the Seminoles are going to lose a game then this is it. Not gonna happen though. They'll tomahawk chop their way to at least a three-point victory.

Think you can do better at picking games? Well...you probably could. Hit us up in the comments section and let us know what games you like this weekend.
