Three-Game College Football Predictions (Week 3)

Dale PlymaleCorrespondent ISeptember 11, 2008

Why should anyone listen to my picks? Easy, just like all experts I have all the necessary tools to school the uneducated masses.
What are those tools, you ask? Well, I was trying to keep them a secret, but if you must know, all you need is an Internet connection and a blog.

The sure pick this week:

No. 3 Oklahoma at Washington

No need for the official to blow this game. Although who knows with it being Oklahoma; remember the Oregon win a few years ago? I’ll still stand by my pick and hope the refs are on their best behavior.

Final Score: Oklahoma 41          Washington 10.


The upset of the week:

UCLA at No. 15 BYU

I believe that Slick Rick is going to get UCLA in title contention in a few years, and it hurts me to say that as a CU Buffs fan. I do not have faith that BYU is that great of a team.

They can show me a lot in this game, but I don’t see them beating UCLA. After that, Rick Neuheisel will jump on his chopper to go recruit some more high school kids.

Final Score: UCLA 28       No. 15 BYU 24


The game of the week:

No. 5 Ohio State at No. 1 USC

College football is finally here. No more big boys beating down their little brothers.

This week has a few games that could go here. I think Kansas and South Florida would easily be the game of the week if it didn’t happen to be these two schools playing one another.

I think Beanie Wells is hurt more than people are letting on. If Terrelle Pryor were the starting QB and had a year under his belt, I think this would be a much closer game, but that is not the case.

Final Score: No. 1 USC 37         No. 5 Ohio State 17


P.S. Since I mentioned the Kansas vs. South Florida game I’ll give one additional score.

Final Score: No. 18 South Florida 24        No. 11 Kansas 17

I would have had that game as my upset of the week, but it appears South Florida is the favorite.
