As promised, for those that follow, I have been red hot in college football the past 6 weeks (18-7-1) 72%, so I will begin posting selections and I will also post picks and write ups for every bowl game this year.
Today I see three on the board that I like:
#1 Kansas State -10.5 - This is the last time heisman hopeful C. Klein will be on the national stage. A two week layoff after an embarassing loss to Baylor on the road will have Kansas State more than ready to take on a Texas team that will not be up for the challenge. What does KSU do best? Run the football. What does Texas' defense struggle most with? Stopping the run! Kansas State will be up for this game on both ends of the ball, and expect Klein to put up big numbers for one last heisman push. One sided game here, Kansas State's defense will shine.
Pick- Kansas State 42 - Texas 17
#2 - Over 57.5 Baylor vs Nevada - Let's not forget the upset Nevada pulled off two years ago when they eliminated Boise from a BCS National Championship bid. Boise can score points and their defense will create turnovers. Nevada can run the ball very well so I expect them to score early, and then collect a garbage score or two late in the 4th quarter. Boise gets the win, but Nevada keeps the score high with a few late scores.
Pick - Boise 40 - Nevada 28
#3 Pittsburgh -6 - South Florida has a good defense, but since the broken.ankle to BJ Daniels their offense has suffered mightily. Pitt has play well of late, and the production of star running back Ray Graham has been key. Pitt's defense has also been formiddable all season and I expect turnovers to help our cause. Pitt wins a low scoring affair.
Pick - Pittsburgh 24 - South Florida 10
Good luck and stay tuned for the Sunday 5 Pack to be posted later today.
