Joey

Ole Miss - I don't think Jake Coker is a good long term answer at QB for Alabama. Without a quarterback to stretch out the defense, Mississippi can load up on the run. On the other side of the ball, Mississippi has scored over 70 in both games this year. A spread offense isn't exactly Alabama's strength defnesively. Ole Miss covers.

Auburn - I don't think Auburn is as bad as it appeared last week. I think they got away from what they're good at. I'm still picking LSU to win, mainly because I don't think LSU is capable of winning by more than one score.

Georgia Tech - Without Malik Zaire, I think Notre Dame is in trouble. It's a wonder why the spread isn't more in Tech's favor, even on the road.

Caymen

LSU - No I don't think Auburn is as bad as we saw last week. I think they'll be a lot better by the end of the season. However, they won't get things figured out in Death Valley against an LSU team that's only played one game so far. They should win this one by at least seven.

BYU - The Hail Mary team of the year is going up against a really good UCLA team. But I think BYU is better than people give them credit for, even without Taysom Hill. They might not win on Saturday but they'll keep it within 17 points.

USC - Stanford has been the top dog in the Pac 12 the past five years (along with Oregon) but USC is finally back. They'll beat Stanford and cover the spread in the process.

Matt

Boston College (+7.5) vs. Florida State - The Seminoles are grinding yards out on the ground at a record pace but what happens if they are forced to throw the football? I think we're going to find that answer out tonight when the Seminoles win an ugly game over Boston College by just a field goal.

Buffalo (Even) at Florida Atlantic - I'm a big fan of pick'em games and I really like the Bulls to win this one straight up.

Rice (-7.5) at North Texas - The Owls struggled on the road last week at Texas. That won't be the case this week.

Rich

USC (-10) vs Stanford - Taking a week one loss, Stanford failed to score a touchdown. In week two, the Cardinal needed a gimmick to spark the offense. Against a rising program like USC, I don't see how Stanford keeps this one close on the road.

Utah (off) vs Fresno State - Sure Travis Wilson suffered an injury last week. However, former Oklahoma Sooner quarterback, Kendal Thompson can easily step in and fill the void. Regardless of who gets the start, I'll take my chances in a pick em contest on the home squad.

LSU (- 6.5) vs Auburn - After an overtime win against an FCS opponent, I have no confidence in Auburn. Leonard Fournette leads this team down the field as the Tigers (that can get confusing in a hurry) cover the spread with relative ease.

Donnie

Nebraska over Miami 34-27. Al Golden's hot seat is now scalding. It will be another long year for the Canes.

UCLA over BYU 31-17. UCLA will continue it's winning ways, but fail to cover the spread.

Arkansas over TTech 38-27. The Hogs rushing attack proves to be too much for the Red Radiers to overcome. The Red Raiders do cover by the slimmest of margins however.
