This Week's Picks
Georgia Tech @ Vanderbilt
Line: Georgia Tech -13.5
Georgia Tech steps out into non-conference play before finishing their conference play. Tech is looking solid all around and I see no reason for them to lose this one but it'll be closer than the odds indicate.
Score: GA Tech 28 - Vandy 17
Duke @ Virginia
Line: Virginia -6.5
Duke is on a roll and is looking to become bowl eligible with two more wins. This would be the first time since 1994. Virginia can become bowl eligible with a win on Saturday.
Score: Duke 34 - UVA 15
USC @ Oregon
Line: USC -3.5
This one's the game of the week. Both teams are vying for the PAC 10 championship and a shot at the Rose Bowl. USC still has an outside shot of playing a week later for the national title. Will they survive? Or will Oregon dash the Trojans hopes... again?
Score: USC 24 - Oregon 43
Texas @ Oklahoma St
Line: Texas -9
Oklahoma State stands as Texas's last big obstacle to the Big Twelve title and on to the national title game. Oklahoma St is down a few players and is rolling since a disappointing loss to Houston. Texas still hasn't proved to me that they are a top five team. It took Sam Bradford going down for them to seal the deal against Oklahoma despite OU giving them the ball like a hundred times. A win here might change my opinion.
Pick: Oklahoma St
Score: Texas 27 - Ok St. 37
Miami @ Wake Forest
Line: Miami -7
Miami's loss to Clemson was a shocker. I couldn't believe it and had to look at it twice when I saw it. This team reminds me of some Hokie squads we've seen. Winning huge and looking top ten like one week and losing big and looking like a bottom dweller the next.
Score: Miami 31 - Wake 18
NC State @ Florida St
Line: Florida St. -7.5
With all of the national hype over Bowden/Fisher controversy subsiding, Florida St. can once again focus on football. The Seminoles need to win out to be bowl eligible and I don't foresee them having an issue picking up this win.
Pick: Florida St.
Score: NC St. 17 - Florida St. 34
