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.
