College Football Week 9 Picks

Well it’s that time of year everyone.  There were numerous upsets as well as a ton of shakeups in the BCS standings.  With all that said, let’s go to Noman, Oklahoma.

#10 Texas Tech at #15 Oklahoma

(10) Texas Tech

(7-0, 4-0 Big 12)

(15) Oklahoma

(6-1, 3-1 Big 12)

Oklahoma has the home-field edge, but Texas Tech has been looking absolutely phenomenal all year.  Despite having the best pass defense in the country I still have questions about the Sooners considering they got blown out against Texas.  Texas Tech is too explosive of a team to be contained by Oklahoma, and I think this is the game they make a statement and show the nation that they are for real.

My Pick:  #10 Texas Tech

#21 South Carolina at #5 Missouri

(21) South Carolina

(5-2, 3-2 SEC)

(5) Missouri

(7-0, 3-0 SEC)

This will be a test for complacency for the Tigers because they are coming off of big wins over Georgia and Florida and a letdown is very likely.  However, I see South Carolina making very little to no dent in Missouri’s perfect season. 

My Pick:  #5 Missouri

#12 UCLA at #3 Oregon

(12) UCLA

(5-1, 2-1 Pac-12)

(3) Oregon

(7-0, 4-0 Pac-12)

This could be Oregon’s big chance to make a jump to #2 in the standings if they beat UCLA soundly.  As great of a season as UCLA has had I can’t honestly give them much of a chance in this game.  Oregon wins this round, but things might change in the Pac-12 Championship game.

My Pick:  #3 Oregon

#6 Stanford at #25 Oregon State

(6) Stanford

(6-1, 4-1 Pac-12)

(25) Oregon State

(6-1, 4-0 Pac-12)

Same with this one.  Don’t expect for OSU to upset Stanford like Utah did two weeks ago.

My Pick:  #6 Stanford

My Record:  24-21

At least the Cougs have all lost to ranked teams.

Stay classy everyone!
