It feels good to jump right back on the winning-train, going a perfect 3-0. After a few dismal .500 weeks, my week seven picks went 3-0 ATS (1-0 Game of the Week).
Texas Tech came into their matchup against a impressive West Virginia offense lead by Heisman hopeful Geno Smith. I called the Red Raiders to cover and they did. The Red Raiders defense and Seth Doege prevailed 49-14. Doege torched West Virginia for six touchdowns and 499 passing yards.
The Florida Gators traveled north to Nashville, Tennessee to take on a pesky Vanderbilt Commodores team. As the final whistle blew in the first half the Gators held a 11-7 lead. Gators QB Jeff Driskel ignited the second half, where he ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns, onward to covering the spread and winning the game 31-17.
The Game of the Week pick. Going for a perfect 3-0 record ATS, the Gamecocks failed to put away a down in the dumps LSU Tigers team, but cover the spread. The Tigers, who we're coming off three less than inspiring weeks of play came into this game looking to rejuvenate their 2012 campaign, and that they did. The Tigers survived the 60 minute back-and-forth battle prevailing 23-21.
Let's continue to gather money and stay on this winning train. Here are my three picks for week eight of the college football season. As always, best of luck to all.
