Texas-Ohio State, Irish-Wolverines Capture Docket

Going 28-11 last week was terrible to a certain extent. However my only really bad pick was Boise State to beat Georgia. The heat, humidity, and Georgia’s team speed ended this one before it started.

Thursday, Sept. 8 –

Oklahoma State 21, Florida Atlantic 13 – Owls kept it close at Kansas; could keep it closer at home vs. offensively challenged Pokes.

Friday, Sept. 9 –

Pitt 35, Ohio U. 12 – The margin of the Panthers’ loss to Notre Dame was surprising and could foster early doubt in the Steel City.

Nevada 34, Washington State 31 – The nation will know about Wolf Pack wide receiver Nichiren Flowers after this one.

Saturday, Sept. 10 –

Kansas State 27, Marshall 21 – Rebuilding Herd visited by a Big 12 foe that they knocked off two years ago in Manhattan.

Michigan 34, Notre Dame 20 – The Irish see a new breed of opponent this week.

Virginia Tech 48, Duke 7 – Yawn! One of the season’s classic mismatches.

Maryland 20, Clemson 17 – Both offenses need to find ways to put the ball into the end zone.

Penn State 28, Cincinnati 10 – Lions tame their second Big East for in two weeks.

Wisconsin 55, Temple 13 – Badgers RB Brian Calhoun could surpass 200 yards again this week.

Oklahoma 27, Tulsa 9 – Sooners rebound from TCU loss behind newly inserted QB Rhett Bomar.

Auburn 24, Miss. State 10 – Tigers need to cut out mistakes and find a running game.

BC 38, Army 7 – Eagles’ eyes are set on Sept. 17 match up vs. Florida State at Chestnut Hill.

Purdue 45, Akron 14 – Boilermakers coach Joe Tiller introduces QB Brandon Kirsch, the latest in a long line of effective Purdue QBs.

Minnesota 27, Colorado State 23 – Laurence Maroney powers Gophers, coming off a 200-plus outing in last week’s win over Tulsa.

Illinois 30, San Jose State 17 – Improving Spartans could provide a test for Ron Zook in week two.

Air Force 23, San Diego State 14 – Young Falcons build on week one win at Washington.

Navy 31, Stanford 21 – Mids rebound after heartbreaking last minute defeat vs. Maryland.

BYU 41, E. Illinois 10 – John Beck threw for 330 in last week’s loss to BC; he should find the EIU secondary easy picking.

Wyoming 40, UL Monroe 17 – Jarvis Bouknight is one of the nation’s best kept secrets at WR for Joe Glenn and the Pokes.

Iowa 24, Iowa State 20 – The Hawks will run into a buzz saw after last week’s rout of Ball State.

Cal 31, Washington 20 – It’s Joseph Ayoob this week at QB for Jeff Tedford.

Georgia Tech 34, North Carolina 21 – Jackets need not nap after last week’s upset of Auburn.

Michigan State 34, Hawaii 24 – Spartans rushed for 354 yards last week while QB Drew Stanton threw for 297.

No. Illinois 31, Northwestern 28 – Huskies get it right this week against a lesser Big 10 opponent.

Georgia 24, South Carolina 16 – The Gamecocks always play this game close.

Florida 47, Louisiana Tech 14 – Start printing the "Chris Leak for Heisman" memorabilia.

Kentucky 37, Idaho State 17 – Andre Woodson showed well in opener with 275 yards in the air vs. Louisville.

Boise State 38, Oregon State 31 – Broncos and Jared Zabransky rebound from embarrassing loss at Georgia.

Florida State 62, Citadel 6 – Why even schedule this game, let alone telecast it on ESPNU?

Texas Tech 51, Fla. Int. 21 – Cody Hodges opens in Mike Leach’s offense against the Panthers, who played K-Sate tougher than expected.

Arkansas 20, Vandy 17 – Hogs cannot afford the six turnovers they had in rout of Missouri State.

Missouri 34, New Mexico 17 – Brad Smith looking for a comeback season after a disappointing 2004.

Nebraska 23, Wake Forest 17 – Huskers could be pushed to the brink as QB Zac Taylor starts against his old team.

Alabama 24, So. Miss. 17 – The Golden Eagles always play Bama tough.

Ohio State 23, Texas 14 – Longhorns need a passing game to compete in this one.

Utah 42, Utah State 10 – Utes escaped Arizona and now tune up on state rival.

Arizona State 28, LSU 24 – The Tigers switch this game to Tempe based on hurricane issues. ASU is a legitimate threat with freshman RB Keegan Herring and dynamic QB Sam Keller.

TCU 34, SMU 3 – Gary Patterson will not let Frogs get away from reality after last week’s upset of Oklahoma.

UCLA 45, Rice 10 – Maurice Drew thrusts his name into Heisman race.

Colorado 40, New Mexico State 21 – High powered Aggies fall upon hard times in Big 12 country.

UNLV 33, Idaho 10 – Improved Rebels were a tough out for New Mexico.
