College Football Week 4 Picks

Well would you look at last weekend.  We had quite a few big upsets there.  Who would of thought that Stepfan Taylor would ruin USC’s bid for a national title so quickly.  Notre Dame might actually be for real too, and if they can beat Michigan the Fighting Irish should easily cement themselves in the top 10.  Without further ado let’s look at the rest of the slate this week.

BYU versus Boise State


(2-1, 0-1 away)

(24) Boise St

(1-1, 1-0 home)
Boise State has climbed back into the rankings after a week 1 loss to Michigan State, while BYU took a tumble after a last-second field goal was shanked against Utah.  Boise has a huge home-field advantage at the Smurf Turf.  Even though BYU has a strong run defense I expect for Broncos quarterback Joe Southwick, and running back D.J. Harper to have big performances in this game.  TCU was able to solve the mystique of the Smurf Turf last year, but I have questions about BYU.

My Pick:  Boise State
Michigan versus Notre Dame

(18) Michigan

(2-1, 0-1 away)

(11) Notre Dame

(3-0, 1-0 home)

I seriously wasn’t expecting Notre Dame to put up the performance they did against Michigan State.  They are really coming on (see that’s what happens when you don’t have a fat a$$ named Charlie Weis eating donuts on the sidelines.)  The question is how is Denard going to do?  The Fighting Irish have a decent defense but it really looks like they might be throttled around like they were the last two times they played Denard.  Looks like that nightmare is going to happen again.

My Pick:  Michigan

Kansas State versus Oklahoma

(15) Kansas St

(3-0, 0-0 away)

(6) Oklahoma

(2-0, 1-0 home)

I really like Kansas State, I really do.  It’s just…they’re playing Oklahoma and it’s AT OKLAHOMA.  The Wildcats are definitely going to need to pull some rabbits out of this hat.

My Pick:  Oklahoma

Clemson versus Florida State

(10) Clemson

(3-0, 1-0 away)

(4) Florida St

(3-0, 1-0 ACC)

What a game. This second top-10 affair of the season should definitely be closer than Michigan-Alabama…and Alabama-Arkansas if Arkansas hadn’t of lost to your fifth grade class. Florida State has outscored their opponents 176-3 this season ( The Seminoles have a strong defense, as well as a strong passing game led by EJ Manuel. Sammy Watkins, Tajh Boyd, and Andre Ellington lead a potent Clemson offense. This game might be a shootout, but either way FSU finds a way to win. It also helps that it’s in Tallahassee.

My Pick:  Florida State

My Record:  8-5

Tune in next week for more picks and predictions.
