Last week’s picks were tough this weeks are tougher!
In high school action I went 2 for 5 and in college  I was 11-15 which was a dismal .650 for the week and dropped my yearly down to .814. This week’s games are going to be rough and here we go. In what is most likely the most anticipated game of the year in college this year Alabama rolls into Athens. I don’t like my dogs being the favorite, but I believe Georgia is a better team this year than Alabama is, Dawgs win.
Notre Dame invades Clemson and this game is huge but Death Valley in Clemson, South Carolina is one of the 5 worst places to play on Saturday night take Clemson at home. Miss. State at Texas AM another top place to avoid is College Station “ the home of the 12th man” the Aggies win by 7. Missouri and South Carolina look weak to me so I will take a Steve Spurrier team in a close one. Navy should ease out Air Force and Virginia Tech should win over Pittsburgh.
I am only taking these teams because they are at home Duke, Ga Tech, Stanford and Northwestern. My gut tells me TCU is primed to get an upset but Texas is unlucky period, upset special Texas wins. Ole Miss visits Florida and the Rebels are not ready but they survive and win in the Swamp. Georgia Southern heads to Louisiana Monroe and ULM wins in a real close game. Miami at Cinncinnati Miami wins by 2. Baylor is a little better than TCU and beats Texas Tech by 10 or more. Bonus NFL pick take the impressive  Falcons at home against the Texans.joe joe 2
