Another pick will be weather affected, Stanford/Wazzu will be played at CenturyLink Field in Seattle in this ugly storm, I still pick Stanford to win and cover but I'm backing down off of 30 points. Unless it's 30-0. It'll be hard to score much in these conditions.

Final 25-0 Tide.

The Ducks covered this spread by the mid-second quarter. And the weather was every bit as nasty as I'd described. I was right until I decided to factor in the weather. It's currently 55-10 Ducks 10 with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, and I expect that will be the final. Both teams seem to want to get the hell out of the torrential rain. Almost none of the 55,000 in Autzen Stadium are still in the stands.

(As I was typing this, Cal scored a TD but missed the XP, score now 55-16, that is now a final)

Oh, and one other thing

This may not be true. The AP polls are currently the accepted rankings, but the BCS polls will be coming out soon, and that's what really counts. For all I know the BCS might put Clemson or Ohio State in that #2 spot.

Speaking of Clemson and Ohio State...

23 Wisconsin at 4 Ohio State

Badgers are good but Buckeyes are better, they win and cover the 6 1/2
Finals: Clemson wins 56-7 (I continue to under-appreciate the Tigers), Ohio State wins 31-24 (I covered that one with ZERO room to spare)

5 Stanford at Washington State

Final 55-17 Stanford.

Game of the week. LSU is favored by 3, I could go either way but I will pick LSU. If the Bulldogs win, however, I wouldn't be surprised in the least.
Final: Bulldogs win 44-41 in a game that really lived up to the hype (except defensively)

Default Week 6 picks

Georgia St. at 1 Alabama

Betting line currently favors 'Bama by 54 1/2. I hate these cupcake games, because the favorite has their second team in the game by halftime and the third string in by the 4th quarter. However, I think 'Bama could *start* their third string and cover this spread

2 Oregon at Colorado

The Ducks won by 39 against Cal in a freaking MONSOON last Saturday in Eugene even without DeAnthony Thomas, the Buffaloes were blown out of Corvallis against a good but nowhere-near-as-good-as-the-Ducks Oregon State team. The spread is 38 1/2. This is a mortal lock. Bet the house on the Ducks.

3 Clemson at Syracuse

I'm tired of underestimating Clemson. They will cover the 13 1/2

4 Ohio State at 16 Northwestern

The Wildcats are currently undefeated. The Buckeyes are undefeated. One team will have a loss at the end of this game, and it ain't gonna be Ohio State. They cover the seven points with ease.

15 Washington at 5 Stanford

I'm in the EXTREMELY unfamiliar position of rooting for the Huskies. If they can somehow win this game, my Ducks have a game up on their primary Pac 12 North competition. However, that would also likely vault the Huskies into the top 10 with a showdown next week against Oregon in the new Husky Stadium. It would definitely bring the ESPN Gameday show to Seattle. (and BTW most of the country has NO IDEA of the boiling, bitter hatred for the Ducks here, it makes the rivalry with Wazzu look like a full-on bromance. This town HATES the Ducks)

BUT...it ain't gonna happen. Washington is much improved but Stanford is better. The Cardinal easily covers the 7 1/2.

6 Georgia at Tennessee

Spread is 10 1/2. Bulldogs win by 20.

7 Louisville at Temple

Another team I've consistently underrated. Louisville is favored by 32 against the winless Owls. I've learned my lesson and I'm taking the Cardinals

25 Maryland at 8 Florida State

I've picked the favorite in every game so far, I will take the 15 1/2 and go with the Terps in this one, not to win but to beat the spread.

10 LSU at Mississippi State

LSU is favored by 9 1/2, they will be PISSED after the loss to Georgia, bet the farm on LSU

The Tide score 38 in the first half and 7 in the second (and zero in the 4th quarter). That's what I meant about cupcake games. Final 45-3 'Bama, they do not cover

Ducks win 57-16, and like 'Bama did not score a point in the 4th quarter.

OK so it wasn't so easy but they do cover, final 40-30 Buckeyes

This was a great game, Stanford juuuuust barely hangs on 31-28 on an overturned 4th down completion on what would have been a first down in range for a long tying field goal. It was, however, the right call

Wrong again. Louisville wins but fails to cover, 30-7

Default Week 7 picks

1 Alabama at Kentucky

The Tide is favored by 27 over the Wildcats, one of the SEC doormats. I think that's just about right.

2 Oregon at 16 Washington

This is the game of the week. These two schools HATE each other. Oregon hates Washington because they've been the dominant Northwest program for DECADES until recent years, and the Duck fans resent the sense of entitlement, like the wealthy snobs that look down their noses at their blue collar middle class neighbors. Husky fans view Oregon as "new money" low class trailer trash, but what they REALLY resent is that the Ducks have won 9 in a row by an average score of 44-17.

I hate the Huskies, but I am duty bound to recognize that they have a vastly better team this year than they've had in many years and have a shot at winning this game, especially in the new Husky Stadium. The problem they have, IMO, is that they're playing a fast pace style, which totally plays into the hands of the unquestioned masters of the uptempo offense. The Ducks also have an under-appreciated opportunistic defense. I have to admit I have some concern over this game but my gut tells me that the Husky fans are really gonna be pissed after the shellacking they are gonna get on Saturday, Ducks cover the two touchdown margin.

Boston College at 3 Clemson

Clemson is favored by 27 1/2, they win and cover

5 Stanford at Utah

Cardinal is favored by 9. This is a mortal lock, Stanford blows the Utes away

25 Missouri at 7 Georgia

The spread favors the Bulldogs by 7 1/2. Mortal lock number two, Georgia will definitely cover this

Rutgers at 8 Louisville

I continue to under-appreciate the Cardinals, I think they will win but I pick Rutgers to beat the 19 1/2 point spread. This game kicks off tonight at 7:30 EDT

9 Texas A&M at Ole Miss

Spread is 6 favoring the Aggies, the Rebels are actually a pretty good team but it's hard to bet against Johnny Football. I take the Aggies

17 Florida at 10 LSU

Tigers are favored by 7, they win and cover.

17 Florida at 10 LSU

Tigers are favored by 7, they win and cover.
Alabama to cover by 35. The Tide is so strong up front they will literally destroy that weak d-line.

Huskies haven't really been relevant since the Napoleon Kaufman era. They will get pounded by Oregon. Oregon to cover by 28 points.

Clemson to win and cover also. Boyd is one helluva gun slinger and that D is solid.

Stanford will dominate and win by 30. Not sure where the betting line was factored but apparently a four year old set the line.

I'm torn on the Georgia game. They looked very mortal last week. I sense Missou covering the spread. Georgia to win with mizzou covering the spread.

Louisville to cover the spread. They will absolutely pummel a poor Rutgers team. I see them running the ball down their throats the entire game.

Aggies over Ole Miss by a ton. I figure a four touchdown beat down by J-football.

Tigers by 7 indeed. I'll go with a two touchdown beatdown.

That may have been true in recent years but this Husky team is better. They gave Stanford all they could handle. Plus it's here in Seattle, and the renovated Husky Stadium will be LOUD.

If this game is available in your area, watch it. I can't overemphasize how BITTER this rivalry is, even though in recent years the Ducks have dominated. The closest game was 34-17 in this nine game run.

An update, DeAnthony Thomas is doubtful for this game.

Thats definitely a hit losing thomas. Jordan Thompson? I think he'll make the hit less painful. I can't remember the other backs last name Kenny something? I think they will do just fine. I like Oregons speed to take it to Washington.

Bralon Addison is also a powerful weapon for Oregon. Then of course there's Mariota...
