College Pigskin Pix Week 6

There were some crazy games last week. Seven ranked teams lost, although some lost to other ranked teams. Man, Wisconsin looked really good in destroying Nebraska and the Huskers pretty much showed every team how to beat them. Make Martinez pass. He really struggles there. Texas A&M had the second massive collapse in the past two weeks. This week’s action is headlined by the Red River Rivalry, Oklahoma visiting Texas. Should be interesting with both teams undefeated. You can always count on the SEC to give football fans a marquee matchup. Florida travels to top ranked LSU and Auburn faces Arkansas. Normally Ohio St and Nebraska would draw big headlines, but the Buckeyes have kind of fallen on hard times. Haha.

We really struggled last week on our picks going 2-4 with a push. Auburn and Notre Dame were our only winners. Somehow Georgia Tech gave up two touchdowns in the final 34 seconds and RG3 couldn’t spin enough magic in a wild game. Here’s the picks for this weekend, enjoy the games and enjoy a few of your favorite brews…

Oklahoma -10.5
The Sooners are too good on defense for the New McCoy to handle.

LSU -13
Rumor has it the Gators will be without Brantley and starting a freshman QB. Some dude named Driskel. The Tigers’ defense is eagerly waiting for feeding time.

Arizona -2
Nick Foley has a field day spanking the Beavers.

Auburn +10
This week’s Dawg Special. For the second week in a row the Tigers are double digit dogs.

Michigan -7
As long as DenardX doesn’t have to pass the ball, the Wolverines are in good shape. Northwestern does have Persa back at QB but it’s only his second game since the Achilles injury.

Texas Tech +9.5
The Red Raiders host Texas A&M, who hasn't been able to put together a complete game lately. It seems like too many points.

And finally, the homer picks…
Iowa +4
Penn St has looked very unimpressive all year. The Hawkeyes pull off another upset in Happy Valley.

Kansas St +4
The Wildcats have defeated Miami and Baylor already. This should be a close game. We’re taking K-State strictly because they’re a home underdog.
