We're praying that we don't jinx the Sooners this weekend.

Season Results

Name Last Week Overall
Donnie 2-1 9-4-1
Caymen 2-1 8-7
Joey 2-1 7-8
Matt 2-1 7-8
Rich 1-2 5-9-1
SaintSooner 2-1 3-5-1


WVU over OKState 37-28. I just don't see it for the Pokes as they head to Morgantown. Expect a lot of couches being burned in victory celebrations.

GTech pulls off the upset at Clemson 31-28. I'm not sold on Dabo Swinney and company. Not only do the Tigers fail to cover, they lose the game outright.

Bama over Arkansas 37-7. Both teams play uninspired football but the talent gap is far too great for the Hogs. Bama wins in a rather boring game and covers in the process.


TCU (-9) at Kansas St. - To keep it simple, the Horned Frogs are too talented when compared to this year's KSU squad. Combine that with what I'd consider a slim spread making this an easy lock for the week.

West Virginia (-7) vs Oklahoma St. - Staying within the conference, I think things come crashing down for the Pokes this Saturday. Look out for the Mountaineers defense on home turf while Grogan doesn't get the opportunity to save OSU again.

Wisconsin (+1.5) at Nebraska - Wisconsin has suffered on offense due to injuries. Yet the game must go on. Putting emphasis on protecting the ball, the Badgers walk away with a win.


TCU - I think Kansas State is a pretty overrated team right now. TCU should expose them and win this one by double digits thanks to their offense.

Florida - People are picking the Gators to get upset this weekend against Missouri, but the Tigers aren't as good as they are in previous years. Florida on the other hand just beat an Ole Miss team that I thought was the best in football. So I'll take Florida to win by a touchdown or more.

Indiana - I was surprised to see Penn State was favored in this game. The Hoosiers should win against the Nittany Lions. Giving Indiana 8 points makes me extra confident picking Kevin Wilson's team.


Michigan State Spartans over Rutgers like the ancient Spartans in the First Messenian War.  By which I mean, crushing.

Tigers and Yellowjackets both have stripes.  But Clemson has more of them than Georgia Tech, I'll take 'em to cover.

My third pick?  Boomer Sooner.  Sorry Longhorns.


Oklahoma (-17) vs Texas - Everytime Oklahoma is available to pick, I'm picking them until they prove unreliable.

LSU (-13.5) vs South Carolina - Carolina is a dumpster fire this season. The LSU Leonard Fournette's win by lots of points.

Alabama (-16.5) vs Arkansas - This seems like a typical midseason 38-10 Alabama lashing. There's like 4 of them every year.


N.C. State (+1.5) at Virginia Tech - We'll start with a Friday Night Special. The Hokies are bad and the Wolfpack defense isn't anything to laugh at. This game is basically a pick'em and I'm going with N.C. State.

Oklahoma (-17) vs. Texas - I usually shy away from games involving the Sooners but I just can't this time. I hope I don't curse myself here but I just don't see how the Longhorns can stay in this game.

TCU (-9) at Kansas State - I don't believe that the star ship Enterprise will make an appearance with the band at the half  and I don't believe the Wildcats can match the Frogs blow-for-blow on offense.
