Week Four College Football Picks in One Sentence

Ben WeixlmannSenior Writer ISeptember 18, 2008

Let's see how good I am picking games in Week Four. Granted, I'm not picking by the spread, but here we go! Winners in bold.



Baylor (2-1) at Connecticut (3-0), 8 p.m

I'm pretty big on Huskies' RB Donald Brown, and not so high on Baylor, as always. I have to go with UConn in this one.



Mississippi State (1-2) at Georgia Tech (2-1), noon

The Bulldogs let up just 3 points last week, and Ga. Tech is in the ACC (Awful Coastal Conference). That being said, I'm going with the home Yellow Jackets.


East Carolina (3-0) at N.C. State (1-2), noon

It's been a while since the Pirates were favored in this matchup, and although I see it as a trap game for them, I think they beat the Wolfpack.


Florida Atlantic (1-2) at Minnesota (3-0), noon

Sure they are undefeated, but Minnesota sucks. And FAU only lost to Michigan State by 17. I think Minnesota would lose to the Spartans by at least 30.


Ohio U. (0-3) at Northwestern (3-0), noon

I thought the Bobcats would be alright this year after the OSU game, but the Wildcats will show their Big 10 chest and send the Bobcats to an 0-4 record.


Troy (2-0) at Ohio State (2-1), noon

Wells out, Pryor probably in: OSU rolls.


Temple (1-2) at Penn State (3-0), noon

This is simple: Penn State in a laugher.


Central Michigan (2-1) at Purdue (1-1), noon,

This will be closer than most people think, but Painter is better than LeFevour, Boilermakers win.


Iowa (3-0) at Pittsburgh (1-1), noon

St. Louisan Adrian Clayborn leads the Hawkeyes in tackles, but he won't get to McCoy too often. Wannstedt's Panthers take a close one.


Alabama (3-0) at Arkansas (2-0), 12:30 p.m.

Saban vs. Petrino. Roll Tide!


UCF (1-1) at Boston College (1-1), 1 p.m

Kevin Smith and Matt Ryan gone creates no hype. BC is at home though.


South Carolina State (2-1) at Clemson (2-1), 1 p.m.

This isn't even fair...Clemson all the way.


Eastern Michigan (1-2) at Maryland (2-1), 1 p.m.

Maryland is riding a nice wave after beating Cal.


Buffalo (2-1) at Missouri (3-0), 2 p.m.

Expect Mizzou to throw up another 50+.


Wyoming (2-1) at BYU (3-0), 3 p.m.

See last week's BYU result, if you don't have access: BYU in a blowout.


Arizona (2-1) at UCLA (1-1), 3 p.m.

UCLA got spanked, but comes back this week with some fire.


Florida (2-0) at Tennessee (1-1), 3:30 p.m

Tebow boosts his Heisman chances with a win over Fulmer's crew on the road.


Miami (1-1) at Texas A&M (1-1), 3:30 p.m

Randy Shannon's Hurricanes go into a tough environment and win.


Notre Dame (2-0) at Michigan State (2-1), 3:30 p.m

Javon Ringer and the Spartans dominate a quality Irish D.


Boise State (2-0) at Oregon (3-0), 3:30 p.m.

Jairus Byrd and Co. stop Ian Johnson, Ducks win at Autzen.


Wake Forest (3-0) at Florida State (2-0), 7 p.m.

Seminoles in a close one behind an improving offense.


Miami University (1-2) at Cincinnati (1-1), 7:30 p.m.

One of the oldest rivalries in football, but the Bearcats are too much this year.


LSU (2-0) at Auburn (3-0), 7:45 p.m., ESPN

In one of two headliners: Auburn wins in a classic SEC defensive battle.


Georgia (3-0) at Arizona State (2-1), 8 p.m., ABC

Arizona State loses last week, can they come back this week and beat the Bulldogs? Yes!
