College Football Week 7 Picks, with a little side order of NFL games

These Friday night upsets are further solidfying my decision not to blog about football until Saturday morning. I was so shocked to see Clemson lose last night to Syracuse. But that’s the typical upset game. I was so happy to see Dabo tell the Syracuse coach, “I’m so proud of you” at midfield following the game. Great man! Hoping Kelly Bryant recovers quickly, with no serious side effects to the concussion.

Week 7 College Picks:

ALABAMA over Arkansas-my Piggies have no shot. Sure, this is the iconic upset game to pick, but even I’m not that crazy.
AUBURN over LSU-though I think my Tigers need to be very careful, this smells of an upset as well, but I think that defense will win the game. Guice isn’t fully healthy, but if he goes off, it could get interesting.
OKLAHOMA over Texas-this game is all about coaching. The sooners are coming off a huge loss last week, if they are coached up they will win, if not, they could stay defeated. The Red River Shootout is always a blast.
USC over Utah-the Trojans need this good feeling win.
STANFORD over Oregon-Stanford’s behometh offensive line wins this game.
MICHIGAN over Indiana-but I say it’s a very close one, Harbaugh’s team is looking for an idenity and that’s a scary place to be against a decent Hoosier team.
OKLAHOMA STATE over Baylor-Mason Rudolph regains his confidence and gets back on track. Gundy’s mullet is the deciding factor on this one.
OHIO STATE over Nebraska-the Buckeyes add some style points with this one.
TENNESSEE over South Carolina-I think the QB change will give the Vols some life. But I never put losing past Butch Jones.
GEORGIA over Missouri-the Bulldogs need to focus on staying healthy, while not overlooking the easy win opponents like the Tigers.
OLE MISS over Vanderbilt-Shea Patterson wins this one.
FLORIDA over A&M-I think this one will be close, but the Gator D wins it.
DUKE over Florida State-Jimbo Fisher has trouble in Tallahassee.
TEXAS TECH over West Virigina-the Red Raiders in the three year win streak of the Mountaineers.
GEORGIA TECH over Miami-Hurricanes losing their top rusher, top receiver has a hamstring issue, 3 other starters out. I’m picking the upset here. But I do love Mark Richt, and I won’t be shocked if he pulls out the win! If the Canes do win, the linebackers on D win it for them.

Week 6 NFL Picks:

RAVENS over Bears
TEXANS over Browns
PACKERS over Vikings
SAINTS over Lions
FALCONS over Dolphins
PATRIOTS over Jets
REDSKINS over 49ers
BUCS over Cardinals
RAMS over Jags
CHIEFS over Steelers
CHARGERS over Raiders
BRONCOS over Giants
COLTS over Titans

Happy Saturday friends!
