College Football Predictions: Four to Watch in Week Four

Dale PlymaleCorrespondent ISeptember 18, 2008

Hi all! I’m back again with my four-game college football predictions. Last week I went three out of four, but my upset special of UCLA beating BYU didn’t turn out so well. That is in the past, and this week I’ll definitely go undefeated!


The Sure Pick of the Week

Wyoming at No. 15 BYU

Maybe this pick is to make up to BYU fans for my choice of UCLA last week. Maybe I’m finally convinced that BYU is a good team. Maybe Wyoming is just that bad. The only sure thing is that BYU will win big!

Final Score: BYU 45, Wyoming 10


The Upset of the Week

No. 20 Utah at Air Force

Sorry, college football fans in the state of Utah—I don’t mean to pick on you. Two weeks in a row that I have a Utah team on the wrong end of the Upset Special. I see Air Force controlling the clock and winning a squeaker. Air Force is always a tough game.

Final Score: Air Force 20, Utah 17


The Game of the Week

No. 6 LSU at No. 9 Auburn

Do I need to say why this is the game of the week? With two SEC teams in the top 10 going at it for 60 minutes with an undefeated season at stake, this is going to be great. I predict another upset here, but not as big.

I actually think that Auburn has the better team, but LSU is and should be ranked higher. This will change this weekend. I just hope LSU doesn’t fall too far out of the top 10 because they are a great team.

Final Score: Auburn 33, LSU 24


My PS Pick of the Week

This week is my homer pick.

No. 22 West Virginia at Colorado

Tonight in blacked-out Folsom Field. I think that ECU exposed a lot of West Virginia’s flaws. Have those flaws been fixed in the last 10 days?

Also, if the rumors are true, Dan Hawkins has only been using a small amount of his playbook for the first two games of the season. The rumor states that he didn’t want to show anything to WVU, FSU, or Texas.

I don’t know if I believe those rumors, but I kind of hope that it is true. I really want to see Darrell Scott in the I-formation instead of the Spread.

My prediction (I’m a CU homer) is that the Buffs will play solid defense and control the clock. The Mountaineers will look better than they did against ECU, but they still just are not the same team as last year.

Look for me in the stands. I’ll be the one wearing black.

Final Score: CU 35, WVU 21
