College Football Week 9 Picks!

Sorry I couldn’t get the Week 8 picks up.  Looks like my Internet Explorer browser and Word Press was an unsuccessful marriage.  Anyways without further ado let’s get to this weeks match-ups.

Texas Tech versus Kansas State

(14) Texas Tech

(6-1, 3-1 Big 12)

(3) Kansas St

(7-0, 4-0 Big 12)

Kansas State proved to be a national contender by routing West Virginia and giving Geno Smith a run for his money.  Texas Tech has been a surprise contender in the Big 12 this season as well, and that showed in its overtime win against TCU.  Both teams are good, but I wouldn’t bet against any team that came off of a shellacking of one of the top offenses in college football.

My Pick:  Kansas State

Florida versus Georgia


(2) Florida

(7-0, 6-0 SEC)

(10) Georgia

(6-1, 4-1 SEC)

This might actually be a rivalry again.  Both are top 10 teams, and both have put together strong performances thus far.  Florida has proven me wrong week after week against top competition, and I think this is the time where we realize that they actually are a contender and not a pretender.  I don’t think Georgia is there quite yet.

My Pick:  Florida

Mississippi State versus Alabama

(11) Miss. St

(7-0, 3-0 SEC)

(1) Alabama

(7-0, 4-0 SEC)


My heart says Mississippi State, but my head says Alabama.  Alabama’s playing at home too.  Kind of tough to pick against this rolling train.

My Pick:  Alabama

Notre Dame versus Oklahoma

(5) Notre Dame

(7-0, 2-0 away)

(8) Oklahoma

(5-1, 3-1 Big 12)

Wow what a game.  Two great offenses going against each other.  Notre Dame is definitely for real this season, but they have a tough challenge against Oklahoma.  Expect for a lot of points to be scored this game.  I know I shouldn’t pick against Oklahoma at home, but screw it I’m gonna be Irish just this once.

My Pick:  Notre Dame

My record:  21-13 (I swear it on my mom’s grave)

It’s great to be back!
