Spooky College Picks
27-21 after 8 weeks. Meh. Let's find some spooky picks this weekend, and get that percentage up!
Miami(14.5) @ UVA
Miami will cover this by halftime, and cruise to a 27 point win. Jacory will hand out a candy int in the third, just to be a nice guy...
Canes 48 Cavs 21
Tennessee @ South Carolina(-17.5)
Phil Fulmer must be turning in his booth at the buffet. 17.5 dogs to the 'Ol Ball Coach?! My how Rocky Top has fallen. The Game Chickens will struggle to cover this, but will do it. late.
(Smokey joining the Game Cocks, too embarrassed to be a Volunteer anymore)
Souf Cakolacki 35 Rocky Bottom 14
Michigan State @ Iowa(-6.5)
The Vegas line for fake kicks is 3.5 this week. Take the over, but sadly, none of them will work for Sparty. After doing his best Les Miles impersonation last week, Ferrentz wakes up the hawkeyes to steamroll Sparty out of the top 10.
Iower 27 Sparty 13
Missouri @ Nebraska(-7.5)
Can you say hangover road trip?! Yes, Mizzou was impressive last week, but now you have Big Red in Lincoln. Welcome to a tie for the Big 12 North.
Black shirts 59 Mizzou 28
Florida - Georgia(-2.5)
Ah, the Cocktail party. I predicted things could get ugly the day before Halloween in Jacksonville, and they are just that. Combined 5-6 in conference play? Ugh. Jorgia is averaging over 40 ppg since UGA VI took the sidelines. It doesn't stop this weekend, despite the Gators' new jerseys. (Fla D scores 14...)
Bulldogs 46 Gators 31
Texas Tech @ Texas A&M(-7.0)
Upset alert...Tubberville leads the Raiders on Halloween weekend, with the ghost of Leach looking over his shoulder, over the Aggies and all of their 12th men.
Red Raiders 27 Agricultural and Mechanical 24
Baylor @ Texas(-7.5)
The Bears are the best team in Tejas, right now. The only one ranked. The only one in the Big 12 with a winning conference record. The best offense, the best QB. Take advantage of it this year, my friend. Stay thirsty, run with it, and beat The Longhorns.
Bears 33 Tejas 23
Michigan(-3) @ Penn State
The Nittany Lions pull some funny stuff on Halloween Eve to beat the Wolverines.
PSU 29 Meeshigan 26
Oregon(-7) @ USC
This is the only chance for USC to be relevant this season. No post season, no polls, reduced scholarships, and let's be honest, beating UCLA this year isn't all that. Beat the Ducks and you've officially screwed with the BCS and NCAA football when you shouldn't be. (Even the ducks won't be able to find themselves in all black Saturday night.)
Trojans 47 Quacks 41
