Computer Picks     1-2-0

==============

Based on the Exhaustion System:

wake forest+7 over GEORGIA TECH – L

Georgia Tech off a heartbraking loss to Miami in a game they were winning until the last 10 seconds. This is a strong Wake Forest team that hung with Florida St and Clemson and is coming off a bye week which will help preparing for the triple option.

 

Based on the Top Ten System:

usc+3.5 over NOTRE DAME (overridden by Personal Pick)

UCLA-7 over oregon (canceled by Personal Pick)

ten+34.5 over ALABAMA (canceled by Personal Pick)

 

Based on the Weak D System:

uab / CHARLOTTE over 50 – L

arizona/CAL over 59 – W

 

Personal Picks     4-6-0

=============

10/19 Thursday      ul lafayette/ARKANSAS ST over 65 – L

Two teams with poor defenses and pretty good offenses.

 

10/20 Friday     western kentucky-10 over OLD DOMINION – L

W Kentucky finally got their offense rolling last week, and they have a tradition to uphold offensively.  Expect them to play confidently against one of the worst teams. On top of that W Kentucky has a solid defense and Old Dominion is punchless on offense.

 

10/21     TEXAS TECH-6 over iowa st – L

Texas Tech angry after blowing 18 point lead to W Virginia. Iowa St 2 weeks removed from big upset over Oklahoma followed by an easy win over hapless Kansas are ripe for a letdown.  Texas Tech has by far the superior QB and running game.

 

10/21     VIRGINIA TECH-21 over north carolina – W

North Carolina is so beat up with 17 players out and 4 questionable, while Virginia Tech is coming off a bye. Starting Brandon Harris didn’t help and shows how desperate NC is.

 

10/21     NOTRE DAME-3.5 over usc – W

USC is beat up with 9 out and 10 questionable while Notre Dame is coming off a bye. This will be USC’s 8th game in a row with several come from behind wins including the last one which was a tough game against Utah.

10/21     michigan+9.5 over PENN ST – L

Michigan has a top 5 defense and Harbaugh’s style keeps games close – only 1 loss by more than 7 since he’s been at Michigan. Penn St’s one weakness is their o-line and that’s Michigan’s greatest strength. Might be wise to see if the line moves from +9.5 to +10 as the public will most likely favor the PENN ST offense and heisman candidate Barkley.
