Week three of the college football season has come to a conclusion, and once again we saw some great games. Anyone who missed the Michigan State/Notre Dame game missed something special. Oh and there was a great upset out on the West Coast when Washington knocked off USC. Oh yeah, I warned you that Florida State was back. However, we are here to talk about the College Football Pick'em pool, let's take a look to see how I fared this weekend.
Florida23 def. Tennessee 13: The spread on this game was a massive 29 points, and I was foolish enough to take the bait. Sometimes one should simply follow their gut instincts. 29 points is a lot to cover even if you are the Chosen One Tim Teabow. I'll admit it the Vols were far more impressive than I thought, and they were able to keep this game interesting. What will be forgotten is Tennessee was one late pick away from making this a three point game. Maybe Lane Kiffen isn't as crazy as we thought he was.
Virginia Tech 16 def. Nebraska 15: This ended up being a great game. And to be completely honest, I am not sure what I can take out of it. Virginia Tech and Nebraska are very similar teams, in terms of their make up and what they can accomplish. The spread favored the Hokies by five and a half points, but the Cornhuskers handled their business and kept this one tight. It will be interesting to see what Nebraska can accomplish in the Big 12 North.
Texas 34 def. Texas Tech 24: The Texas Longhorns have one goal this year, and that is winning a national championship. Knocking off the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Saturday night was a nice bit of retribution for what happened last year. The spread favored the Longhorns by 18 points, but that was too much for Texas to cover.
Straight Up 6-1
Against the Spread 5-2
