College Football: Week Two Picks

Michael HicksSenior Analyst ISeptember 4, 2008

Everybody is doing it so I thought I would put my two cents in to. Here are my week two picks:


Thursday Sept. 4

South Carolina 14, Vanderbilt 10

Even though the Ole Ball Coach is playing musical chairs with his quarterbacks South Carolina has enough on defense to avoid another upset by the Commodores.


Friday Sept.5

Navy 35, Ball State 30

This will be a high-scoring game but I think Navy has to much offense.


Saturday, Aug. 30

Ohio State 40, Ohio 3

Even with Chris "Beanie" Wells out with that toe injury the Buckeyes will win big gearing upfor the top-five showdown with USC.

Georgia 41, Central Michigan 21

CMU QB Dan LeFevour is very talented, but the Georgia defense will be to much. The Dawg's will be upset after getting jumped by USC last week also.

West Virginia 30, East Carolina 27

The Pirates will be put up a fight fresh off the upset of Virgina Tech last week but Pat White and the Mountaineers will prove to much in the end.

Ole Miss 33, Wake Forest 30

Ole Miss quarterback  Jevan Snead and the Rebels' passing game should do well against the Wake secondary. Getting DT Peria Jerry is a big plus to for Houston Nutt's defense.

Florida 41, Miami 21

Flordia's offense should jump on the young Canes early and often. Miami will struggle on offense with QB Robert Marve makeing his college debut at the Swamp.

BYU 33, Washington 21

Jake Locker and the Huskies are coming off  tough loss against Oregon and BYU wont be much easier. The Cougars' should win easy.

Alabama 30, Tulane 3

This is a tough opener for Tulane, who have had to stay in Birmingham all week because of the hurricane. Look for John Parker Wilson and the offense to put big numbers against the undermanned Green Wave.

Southern Miss 21, Auburn 20

Auburn will toss Chris Todd out at the QB position this week and the offense still has no rhythm. Southern Miss new offense started off strong, piling up a school-record 633 yards of offense in coach Larry Fedora's debut. Look for the Golden eagles to make big plays in this game.

Georgia Tech 31, Boston College 27

Paul Johnson’s offense gets it's first test against an ACC team. It should be a close game but BC will not have an answer for the option attack.
