Previewing Week 2’s Big Games!

With the kickoff of the Pittsburgh-Cincinatti game tonight, the second week of college football will be underway.  I’m off to an ok start, but unfortunately the slate this week looks a little bland.  Next week should be much better in terms of top teams going against each other.  Without further ado let’s look at the first game this week.

Pittsburgh versus Cincinatti


(0-1, 0-0 away)


(0-0, 0-0 home)
I don’t watch the Big East that often, because frankly the teams suck, but this is an important conference matchup.  The Panthers just got off a 31-17 loss to Youngstown State, so they will need this win.  Expect for Pitt running back Ray Graham to have a great game and shred the Cincinatti defense.  Experienced Cincinatti quarterback Zach Collaros will try to keep it close, but Pitt looks like the more talented team.

My pick:  Pittsburgh

Penn State versus Virginia

Penn St

(0-1, 0-0 away)


(1-0, 1-0 home)

For those of you who haven’t been following Penn State, you will know shortly that their football program is in the crapper.  Their starting quarterback, leading rusher, and several other talented players have transferred schools.  They also lost to Ohio last week.  Seriously who loses to OHIO!  Anyways, with that being said expect this to be another long game for Penn State.  They’re gonna put up a fight, but sadly it won’t be enough.  Hopefully it doesn’t end with them going 0-12.

My pick:  Virginia

Washington versus LSU


(1-0, 0-0 away)

(3) LSU

(1-0, 1-0 home)

Seriously why do I even bother with this one.

My pick:  LSU

Georgia versus Missouri and Florida versus Texas A and M

(24) Florida

(1-0, 0-0 away)

Texas A&M

(0-0, 0-0 home)


(7) Georgia

(1-0, 0-0 away)


(1-0, 1-0 home)

These games are unique because both are welcome to the SEC games for these former Big 12 powerhouses.  Both Missouri and Texas A and M are at home against big-time SEC programs.  The SEC until proven otherwise (which hopefully happens when they don’t get crowned this season) is the premier football program.  I see both schools trying to make it competitive, but the competition for the SEC is just a couple notches up of what the Big 12 sees on a daily basis. 

My picks:  Florida and Georgia

My record:  2-2

Hopefully the Cougs beat Eastern Washington tomorrow.  If not though, there will be h**l to pay.
