College Football: Baby's Losers for Halloween Week

BabyTateSenior Writer IOctober 26, 2009

The week of Halloween has a nasty reputation for playing tricks as well as treats on college football title contenders.

The only sure winner this week is the Alabama Crimson Tide. They do not have to play.

So, proceed with caution regarding this week's Baby's Losers.

 

                                                      Baby's Losers

 

1. Florida vs. Georgia in Jacksonville

The Bulldogs should be ready for the Gators. Mark Richt's coaching ability and A.J. Green's skill against the many weapons of Florida. Could be closer than expected.

Baby's Loser: Georgia.

 

2. Southern California @ Oregon

You can find yourself getting in a lot of trouble doing this, but let's just go out on a limb and saw it off.

Baby's Loser, in a shocker: Southern California.

 

3. Michigan @ Illinois

Brute power vs. brute strength Big 10 style. Running quarterbacks and Ron Zook's recently settled job security issue highlight the event.

Baby's Loser, close: Illinois. 

 

4. Cincinnati @ Syracuse

Greg Paulus will do all he can for his Orange, but the Bearcats appear too strong defensively and may be headed to the Big East Championship.

Baby's Loser: Syracuse. 

 

5. Nebraska @ Baylor

An old-fashioned upset is what happened to Nebraska last week. The Bears give up 375 yards rushing a game. Look for the Cornhuskers to rebound.

Baby's Loser: Baylor.

 

6. Georgia Tech @ Vanderbilt

Trap game. Commodore Head Coach Bobby Johnson has the well-disciplined defense to slow down the ferocious Yellow Jacket running attack. Should be a thriller in Opry City.

Baby's Loser, tight: Vanderbilt. 

 

7. Ole Miss @ Auburn

The Rebels are improving and have expectations of a Top 20 finish. The Plainsmen seem to have fallen back a slight bit, just for the time being.

Baby's Loser: Auburn.

 

                                                Saturday's Tough One

8. The Air Force @ Colorado State

These in-state Mountain West rivals have a peculiar dislike for each other. Look for the fly boys to go into Fort Collins and knock off the Rams in what should be a dogfight. 

Baby's Loser: Colorado State.

 

                                                 Game Of The Week

9. Texas @ Oklahoma State

The Cowboys will throw an all-out party if they can pull off the biggest upset of the season. If the Cowboy passing game is on, they have a real shot at taking down the Longhorns. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Baby's Loser: Oklahoma State. 

 

Last Week Baby Tate went 8-1, missing Miami. For the year, 53-19. 

9-0: 12 (Back to the old tricks for the defending champion), Michael O., and Chris C.

8-1: Baby Tate, Michael C., Ga Dawg, Mosang, Cliff, Blake, Dan S.

7-2: Tim C., Zodiac, Dan B., Kevin, Red Raider,  Bill B., Brandon H., Kent, Daniel H., Trey J., Alex F., Ryan R., Scott R., 007, and Ben Long.

6-3: Ronnie, RunTell, Tom O., Taylor B., Carl, Jim, Tony O., Jared W., Josh M., Matt S., Iceman.

5-4: Southern Man, Connor, and Drew M.

Below The Baby Tate Mendoza Line For The Moment: Tyler S., Kimberley, Tyler L.

Thanks To All Who Played This Past Week!
