-----Mikey-----

If anyone's been reading my picks and fading me this season, you're probably a millionaire by now. (all lines from covers.com):

Indiana (+10) over Penn St. $44 to win $40

Indiana's been surprisingly competitive at home this season, keeping it close with some good teams. Penn St. is another good team so hopefully the Hoosiers are ready for this one too and battle the Lions till the end.

Clemson (-13.5) over Wake Forest $44 to win $40

This line seems too high so Clemson's the pick. You heard me.

Illinois (-7.5) over Northwestern $44 to win $40

The Illini had a terrible loss at home last week against Minnesota. Northwestern beat Iowa at home last week, but also suffered a terrible loss as QB Dan Persa went down with a season-ending injury. That Wildcats loss is more important to this game as Illinois will hold them down and take the W.

Army (+8) over Notre Dame $44 to win $40

I pity all the college kids who go to this game because it will be hard to aford beer in the new Yankee Stadium. For the game though, the Irish seem to have trouble with the academies nowadays and Army should keep the trend going. Look for this one to come down to the final possession.


-----Hinkle-----

Well ladies and gentleman the time has come for me to make my return to the great state of Idaho to visit some friends from Boise. So yes, that means I will be in section 105 watching my Broncos hand it to Fresno Friday evening on the Smurf Turf. Jealous? I thought so.

Boise State -30.5 33 win 30

Do I need to explain this pick?

Idaho +2.5 vs Utah St. 22 win 20

Idaho took one in the mouth last week on national TV vs. the Broncos. They had to have learned something from that defeat and will come out hungry for this game.

Colorado State/Wyoming OVER 50 44 win 40

Followed both of these teams all year long. I thought this line would be in the 60's. Guess thats why I live in Penn's Woods and not the desert.

Oklahoma -7 vs Baylor 22 win 20

Why? Because I need TCU's win vs Baylor to look just as pointless as their win vs Utah Fightin Frauds. BOOMER SOONER!!!


-----Mattare-----

Notre Dame (-8.5) over Army....$170 to win $153

ALL IN. GO IRISH.

Kansas State (-2.5) over Colorado...$10 to win $9

Go Fightin' Snyders.

Va Tech (-2) over Miami...$10 to win $9

Hokies keep winning for Boise.

UConn (+150) over Syracuse...$10 to win $15

The Huskies are coming on strong.


-----Chuck-----

Cal (+7.5) over Stanford (170 to win 154.55)
Iowa (+3) over Ohio St. (10 to win 9.09)
Colorado (+2.5) over Kansas St. (10 to win 9.09)
Wake Forest (+14) over Clemson (10 to win 9.09)
