If you actually gambled off of my picks last week I'm sorry; I know I didn't do that hot, against the spread or straight up. There's a reason why I don't gamble, but it doesn't mean it isn't fun trying to make the picks.
This week is chock full of marquee match-ups. We have a No. 2 facing a No. 7; No. 4 versus a No. 13; No. 6 up against No. 18, and No. 17 playing No. 23. The great thing is that they might not even be the best games!
Alabama could have its hands full against the Tennessee passing attack. Arizona State could have a good enough defense to slow down the Ducks along with a high caliber offense that could be able to keep up with Oregon. Baylor's top rated passing game could very well be too much for the defense of No. 25 Texas.
Just like every other week in college football there are a few games with absolutely ridiculous spreads. At least these guys have an excuse for playing these guys; their all conference games. While the football may not be the best, it can still be pretty entertaining to see if they can do enough to cover the 30, 34.5 or 40.5 point spreads.
Enough of my chatter. Why don't you check out the gallery to see what you need to watch this weekend!
