I would never suggest going the Bush route unless you want your picks to do a DJIA and lose half their value. Keep up that action and you'll be playing bridesmaid to 3rd place, not that I mind though…

Thursday, October 97:30 PM ET ESPN Clemson (3-2, 1-1) @ #25 Wake Forest (3-1, 1-0) -2.5. With the benefit of hindsight, Wake should have won that one by 56, but they didn't. I picked with HP on that one so I cannot argue the merits.

Saturday, October 1112:00 PM ET ABC #5 Texas (5-0, 1-0), #1 Oklahoma (5-0, 1-0) -7 @Dallas, TX. While I enjoy the beatings of local baptists, nobody's been doing with quite as much gusto as the Sooners. Look for the secondary weakness of the Horns to be exploited time and time again, like a washed up porn star looking to support her coke fix. While I like to support the Horns at all times, I have the sinking feeling that OU will hang half hundo on them. Colt will have a good day, but nobody could provide what would be necessary fro the win nor the cover in this one. Texas will score twice late to make it look respectable. OU 56, UT 38.

12:00 PM ET Big Ten Network Toledo (1-4, 1-1) @Michigan (2-3, 1-1) -16.5. I'm with the philosopher on this one. Michigan will finally get a chance to show some life on offense and will look good for a weekend. The defense will dominate… and things will look great, until next weekend. M 34, Toledo 13.

12:30 PM ET ESPN2 Colorado (3-2, 0-1) @ #16 Kansas (4-1, 1-0) -14. Again, I'm with the Philosopher on this game. KU will score at will. Since this is the big XII, look for at least two teams to score 60. KU will be one of them. KU 63, Col 21.

12:30 PM ET GP South Carolina (4-2, 1-2) @Kentucky (4-1, 0-1) PK. UK has a good defense as proven last week and USCe has a terrible offense. Look for a game that would be better suited for ACC teams. UK 13, USCe 8.

3:00 PM ET Nebraska (3-2, 0-1) @ #7 Texas Tech (5-0, 1-0) -21. The other Big XII team to score 60. Bet the over? Yarrrrr-betcha TT 69, Neb 28.

3:30 PM ET CBS Tennessee (2-3, 0-2) @ #11 Georgia (4-1, 1-1) -13. I cannot argue about the fact that Tennessee is not very good. Plus its between the hedges. I suspect that Fat Fulmer is soon going to be putting in applications for a leading role in "the great pumpkin". Georgia 38, Tennasty 17. Sounds reasonable.

3:30 PM ET ESPN2 #23 Michigan State (5-1, 2-0) -2.5 @Northwestern (5-0, 1-0). Sparty has proven itself a one dimensional running team. That one dimension has been a mack truck with opponents being the proverbial squirrel in the road. NU has gotten fat on sub-par opponents, but look out! NU is a good MAC team – they may win the conference once every 4 years - with a senior QB, RB and offensive line that's what they have this year. NU 28-27.

3:30 PM ET ABC-R Notre Dame (4-1, 0-0) @ #22 North Carolina (4-1, 1-1) -7. Jimmah is averaging 311yds, 3TDs and 0 INTS over the past couple of games. Purdump and Stanford are not world-beaters. UNC is very much improved and has shown that they can win with their 3rd string QB. ND's defense is rather porous as well. Look for Tate (Not Golden) to run back a kick and get somewhere around 150 yds receiving. UNC 38-27.

5:00 PM ET Arizona (5-1, 2-0)-6.5 @ Stanford (3-3, 2-1). Why are we picking this? AZ 44-10.

8:00 PM ET CBS #3 LSU (4-0, 2-0) @# 12 Florida (4-1, 2-1) -5.5. What happened to kcUF's offense? With the second coming and Percy Harvin, they should be scoring at will on opponents like Tennessee and Ol'Miss. They haven't, yet they continue to ride excellent defense and special teams play. The tigers ride into this rivalry with national championship hopes, look for them to be temporarily derailed. kcUF 23-21.

8:00 PM ET ESPN2 #21 Oklahoma State (5-0, 1-0) @ #4 Missouri (5-0, 1-0) -13.5. I agree with Philosopher here too. TDH has been playing who? Did I say 2 Big XII teams will score 60 this week? I did not mention that one would score 70. Mizzou 70-24.

8:00 PM ET ABC-R #6 Penn State (6-0, 2-0) -5 @ Wisconsin (3-2, 0-2). The badgers cannot be that bad. They were at one time ranked #9. At night, at camp Randall is not a place that PSU has thrived. Look for the cheese heads to right the ship in another hard fought battle. UW 17-PSU-16.
