My weekly college football column is now live on CT.com. Click here to read it.
Here are some bonus picks from my friends Spills and Dan P...
Kent State +7.5 over Northern Illinois
I like Kent State a lot, they are #12 in BCS at 11-1, not sure how this line is 7.5
Stanford -8 over UCLA
Love Stanford, this will lock them in to Rose Bowl against an overmatched Wisconsin or lame Nebraska team. Woodshed.
Florida State -14 over Georgia Tech
West Virginia -20 over Kansas
West Virginia and Florida State should both roll.
Oklahoma State / Baylor OVER 86.5
If you really want to have some fun, check out that Ok. State/Baylor O/U 87. Try to bet the Under and not go insane. Those Big 12 games are like a glass case of emotion.
Sidenote: Not sure why you have been all about Texas this year Z. They're like your gambling version of heroin. You will never catch the dragon, just stop betting their games.
Nebraska -3 over Wisconsin
Wisconsin is no good, especially 1500 miles from home. 27-10 Nebraska
And now for a shocker. Georgia +7.5 over Alabama. Yes this goes against the gambling manifesto, but hear me out. I think this game is very similar to the Florida / Alabama game a few years back during Tebow's senior year. Everyone and their mother is has penciled Alabama into the National Title game (just like Florida). I also think Notre Dame alumni have paid off 500 billion in bribes this year for everything to fall their way. Wouldn't it be fitting if they somehow managed to escape Alabama? Also, that Alabama fan who put his frank and beans on the passed out LSU guy's head on Bourbon St was sentenced to 2 years in prison today. That's bad karma. Now he's gonna watch his Tide lose on Saturday. I think Georgia's defense is way underrated and can hold Alabama under 21 points. Dawgs in a stunner. 23-20 Georgia.
