From page B2 | September 13, 2013 |

This week’s picks are as follows:

OHIO STATE over CAL … despite a talented freshman quarterback, the Bears will quickly learn you can’t win without defense. Especially against this bunch of talented Buckeyes.

STANFORD over ARMY … out of respect for our men and women in uniform, the boys from Stanford will do their level best to keep the spread under 50.

ALABAMA over TEXAS A&M … the Tide will be ready for Johnny Full-of-Himself this time around.

UTAH over OREGON STATE … some folks thought the Beavers might start the season 7-0. With one-sixth of an uninspiring season already gone, OSU will be fortunate to finish above .500.

OREGON over TENNESSEE … there once was a time when this would have been a major upset. Now it’s a walk in the park for the best team in America.

FRESNO STATE over COLORADO … the Bulldogs are trying to prove they’re the best team in the Golden State.

USC over BOSTON COLLEGE … booing the home team has become a way of life in the Los Angeles Coliseum after last week’s spiritless performance against Washington State. Lane Kiffin will be lucky to finish the year before AD Pat Haden calls his own number to take Kiffin’s place along the sideline.

NOTRE DAME over PURDUE … the luck of the Irish produced a 12-0 mark last year. Notre Dame will need more than luck to get past eight wins this time around.

WASHINGTON over ILLINOIS … the Huskies’ Return to Glory train keeps on rolling.

WISCONSIN over ARIZONA STATE … a field goal separates these two.

ARIZONA over TEXAS-SAN ANTONIO … the Wildcats drop down into the Bakery League to pick on another cream puff.

UPSET OF THE WEEK: UCLA over Nebraska … two years in a row for the mighty Bruins. (Upset record: 0-2).

ROUT OF THE WEEK: Oklahoma State over Lamar … the Cowboys overcome all the scandal talk to laminate Lamar. (Rout record: 2-0).

DON’T BET ON IT, BUT: Washington State over Southern Utah … Coug fans are giddy about the prospect of Wazzu finally putting together a winning season. Now, if they just don’t “Coug” it, all will be well in the Palouse. (Don’t bet record: 1-1).

FIVE EASY PICKS: This week’s easy-money winners are West Virginia (over Georgia State), Michigan (over Akron), LSU (over Kent State), Kansas State (over Massachusetts) and Utah State (over Weber State). (FEP record: 10-0).

AGGIES over NORTHERN ARIZONA … two outfits desperately seeking a win. A breakout game for the new Aggie quarterback and a statement game for the Aggie defense. Take the Ags by 7.

OTHER GAMES: Boise State over Air Force, Louisville over Kentucky, Oklahoma over Tulsa, Minnesota over Western Illinois, Virginia Tech over East Carolina, Arkansas over Southern Mississippi, Pittsburgh over New Mexico, Rutgers over Eastern Michigan, Temple over Fordham, Michigan State over Youngstown State, Florida State over Nevada, Colorado State over Cal Poly SLO, Georgia Tech over Duke, Syracuse over Wagner, Penn State over Central Florida, South Carolina over Vanderbilt, Louisiana-Lafayette over Nicholls State, Cincinnati over Northwestern State, Maryland over Connecticut, Northwestern over Western Michigan, Portland State over Humboldt State, Montana State over Colorado Mesa, Sacramento State over Southern Oregon, Northern Illinois over Idaho, and Northern Colorado over Wyoming.

Last week: 51-6, season: 89-17, percentage: .840.
