Another 6-0 week? I can't possibly make it three perfect weeks in a row, can I? Nah...
Not a great week last week but not horrible either. I went 6-1 straight up bringing my total to 51-8 (86.4%) and I went 4-3 against the spread which brings my season-to-date total to 33-22 (60%). This week we have five conference games, one tough mid-major foe and an FCS opponent. Let's get to the picks....
#25 Missouri (5-0, 1-0) at #7 Georgia (4-1, 3-0)
Saturday, Oct 12th, Noon EST, ESPN
Line: Georgia by 8 (and falling)
Last year, Georgia welcomed Missouri to the SEC by giving them a 21 point loss in their debut. Truth isn't always in the numbers as that game was a lot closer than the 41-20 final score indicated. The Bulldogs actually trailed in the third quarter before scoring the last 24 points of the game behind a monster game by Jarvis Jones.no comments
There are currently 17 undefeated teams in the FBS division of college football as we head into week seven. This is going to make for some exciting football down the stretch as we watch some of these teams face off against each other, some of these teams suffer heart-breaking defeats and maybe, just maybe, some of these teams reach the end of the regular season with their perfect record in tact. For fun, let's assume that every one of these teams will drop at least one game before the end of the season. Here are the undefeated teams and their most likely first loss....no comments
#17 Florida (4-1, 3-0) at #10 LSU (5-1, 2-1)
Saturday, Oct 12th, 3:30 PM EST, CBS
Line: LSU by 7
This rivalry between founding members of the SEC has gone back and forth recently with each team winning six of the last twelve games. Florida has won three of the last five but LSU has won two of the last three. LSU has won three of the last four in Baton Rouge. This has been a competitive rivalry and nothing less is expected when the two teams meet this Saturday.no comments
Another week, and we have more undefeated teams drop. After six weeks we have now started to rank the teams in our top ten as many are starting to separate themselves based on their performances and quality of victories. Here's the CFBZ Ten after week six:
THE CFBZ TEN:
#1 Oregon Ducks 5-0
Oregon got a brief challenge from Colorado before they hit the accelrator and ended up with a 41 point margin of victory. So far the Ducks have coasted through their schedule but the toughest test so far for them awaits this weekend.
Next Game: 10/12 at Washington (4-1)no comments
With six conference games on tap, this weekend proved to be a busy one in the SEC. The night-time slate featured five different conference games. Would Georgia and LSU experience letdowns after their thriller in Athens last week? Who would survive the Auburn/Ole Miss showdown? Would Florida hold serve against Arkansas? Here's what we learned this weekend....
Alabama 45 Georgia State 3
What can you learn when the best team in the FBS plays the worst? Not much. We learned that Nick Saban has some compassion. Up by 38 at half-time, Saban pulled in the reigns on the Tide express as they coasted to a 42 point victory.no comments
Last week was a rousing return to form, with a perfect 6-0 record in my picks. Can I make it two weeks of perfection in a row? Highly unlikely, but let's give it a shot anyway...
Can we pretend last week didn't happen? Picking straight up games I went 8-0, which actually makes me 25-0 over the last three weeks, but I didn't fare so well against the spread. For the year, I am 45-5 (90%) in straight up picks and 29-19 (60%) against the spread. This week is highlighted by six conference games. Onto the picks...
There are seven different games around the SEC this weekend with six conference games being played. Let's take a look at each game and rank them from the most watchable to the least as well as ranking them from 1 (only watch if you are being paid or are an alum) to 10 (must see TV).
