Quick picks with brief comments will be coming to you each week! I’ll be picking games with top 25 ranked teams and all SEC teams!
Boise State vs #18 Ole Miss
This isn’t the Boise State we’re used to. Without Chris Peterson coaching the team the Mustangs will not be able to achieve what they used to with the talent they have always had. Ole Miss will have ESPN talking after a big win but it’s more of a sign of the decline of Boise State.
Ole Miss 45 – Boise State 17
#19 Arizona State vs Weber State
Arizona State a lot, Weber State not much
Vanderbilt vs Temple
Vanderbilt is still a SEC team even though they’re a lower-tier one.
Vanderbilt 38 – Temple 14
#8 Michigan State vs Jacksonville State
Jacksonville State takes their big check for this game and get a new massage chair for every player and coach.
Michigan State 52 Jacksonville State 6
#7 UCLA vs Virginia
The team trending upward the most will stomp a team that seems to have been on a constant downfall for the last few years.
UCLA 24 – Virginia 10
#5 Ohio State vs Navy
Ohio State will come out and score a stupid amount of points to try and make a pint. Navy will continue to cling to the awful triple option offense.
Ohio State 52 – Navy 3
#2 Alabama vs West Virginia
This game may have looked intriguing in some years but not this year. West Virginia is nowhere near what they used to be and Alabama is going to want to show off early with an easy schedule ahead this will be a chance to have a win that looks impressive.
Alabama 42 – West Virginia 17
#24 Missouri vs South Dakota State
Tune Up Game
Missouri 56 – South Dakota State 10
#22 Nebraska vs FAU
See the previous game predicted
Nebraska 42 – FAU 10
#17 Notre Dame vs Rice
The return of Everret Golson at quarterback for Notre Dame after sitting out a season for poor grades is the sole reason for the new found faith in Notre Dame.
Notre Dame 38 – Rice 17
#11 Stanford vs UC Davis
A lot to a little and can you guess who i chose for a lot?
Yeah…It’s going to be Stanford
#12 Georgia vs #16 Clemson
Probably the biggest game of the week as far as rankings go but I don’t think it will be as entertaining as the hype will lead you to believe. Georgia is pumped up and healthy and Clemson has lost so many key pieces this game is going to become lopsided.
Georgia 38 – Clemson 17
#23 North Carolina vs Liberty
Let’s just say Liberty walks out with more money for their program and North Carolina gets to look impressive
North Carolina 45 – Liberty 0
#4 Oklahoma vs Louisiana Tech
Coming off a big win against Alabama, playing a team like this just doesn’t seem right.
Oklahoma 38 – LA Tech 3
#20 Kansas State vs Stephen F. Austin
Kansas State wins by a lot
#15 USC vs Fresno State
USC gets to remain overrated for week 1
USC wins by overkill
#1 Florida State vs Oklahoma State
I love watching Oklahoma State play football and they are usually a well run team that can hang up 50 points on even solid teams. However, this is the worst team they will be fielding in years and FSU really didn’t lose a lot from last year.
FSU 42 – Oklahoma State 21
#13 LSU vs #14 Wisconsin
This is truly the game of the week in my eyes. In all honesty I have been thinking about this matchup since it was announced and i honestly can’t say which team has the edge. Almost every other season if this matchup were to occur I would have chosen LSU in a heart beat. Ultimately my connections to the SEC and my respect for LSU is how i decided the result on this one.
LSU 24 – Wisconsin 21
#3 Oregon vs South Dakota
The state of Dakota must be a bunch of masochist
Oregon 8,532 – South Dakota 3
#25 Washington vs Hawaii
This is a game worth watching solely because Chris Peterson is the new coach at Washington and they have had some excellent recruiting classes by their standards as of late.
Washington 38 – Hawaii 10
#10 Baylor vs SMU
Bryce Petty will begin padding his Heisman hopeful stats in this game.
Baylor 52 – SMU 7
