College Football Week 7 Picks

With the litany of upsets that occurred last Saturday I have fallen to 6-9 on the season. Hmm, getting back to .500 may be tougher than I thought. Let’s start with an SEC East clash.

#13 Georgia at #23 Missouri

(13) Georgia

(4-1, 2-1 SEC)

(23) Missouri

(4-1, 1-0 SEC)

With star Georgia tailback Todd Gurley suspended for this game the Bulldogs offense will take a big hit. It doesn’t help that they are also 2-7 on the road against ranked opponents in their last nine games. Missouri was able to upset South Carolina, but with their porous rush defense I think that Georgia will be able to more than make up for it in Gurley’s absence.

My Pick: Georgia

#12 Oregon at #18 UCLA

(12) Oregon

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

(18) UCLA

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

Both teams are coming off of home upsets last week, and this could be a loser out game in the college football playoff. Both schools have very flimsy offensive lines, but I have more questions than answers about UCLA’s play this season. Oregon’s loss may have been a fluke, they won’t make the same mistakes again against a UCLA team that they won’t overlook.

My Pick: Oregon

#2 Auburn at #3 Mississippi State

(2) Auburn

(5-0, 2-0 SEC)

(3) Mississippi St

(5-0, 2-0 SEC)

Well how about that, the first of our two top ten matchups this weekend. This game will feature two teams expecting to make the playoff this January and two Heisman quarterbacks in Nick Marshall and Dak Prescott. MSU has had two impressive wins over LSU and Texas A&M, but Auburn definitely looked the part of a national title contender with their dismantling of LSU last week. I say Auburn wins by a hair, but I could just as easily be wrong on this one.

My Pick: Auburn

#9 TCU at #5 Baylor

(9) TCU

(4-0, 1-0 Big 12)

(5) Baylor

(5-0, 2-0 Big 12)

We will know for sure just how strong TCU is after this game. The Horned Frogs are coming off a shocking upset of Oklahoma and are looking to move up even further in the polls this weekend. Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty will probably have a monster game, but look for defense to set the tone early. The momentum from the Oklahoma game will carry over and that will be enough to contribute to a Horned Frogs victory.

My Pick: TCU

#3 Ole Miss at #14 Texas A&M

(3) Ole Miss

(5-0, 2-0 SEC)

(14) Texas A&M

(5-1, 2-1 SEC)

Wow last Saturday definitely was the weekend of Mississippi. Ole Miss upset Alabama at home, and Mississippi State blew by A&M. As good as Kenny Hill has been this season, he got exposed last week against the Bulldogs. Ole Miss has a great defense, and if Bo Wallace cuts down on mistakes that should be enough for another Rebels victory. Which it will be.

My Pick: Ole Miss

Stay Classy Everyone!
