Picks of the Week

So, yeah, that's the second week I forgot to do this post. But, you know what? I'm nothing if not persistent, so I'm getting back on the horse today. There are not a lot of great games this weekend, but the ones that are, are really great.

No. 15 Michigan at Iowa
The last time Michigan went on the road they got chewed on by an especially tenacious Michigan State team. Iowa is not Michigan State and the UM team that came out ready to play against Purdue last weekend is not the same team that the Spartans ate up. I predict this one to be close until the fourth quarter, when the Wolverines pull away to win by two scores.
Michigan 35     Iowa 21
No. 9 South Carolina at No. 7 Arkansas
This is the game when one of these overrated SEC teams finally drop into the low teens. While both of these teams are overrated, I think SoCar is the most overdue for a serious butt kicking.
South Carolina 10     Arkansas 28

No. 1 LSU at No. 2 Alabama
This is the biggest game of the year. 1 v 2. LSU is the better team but they are at a disadvantage because they are heading to Tuscaloosa. I think they are the better team, though, and they will stop Alabama's offense.
LSU 28     Alabama 24
No. 14 Kansas State at No. 3 Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State is the sleeper team for the National Championship game, and the big showdown for them will be at the end of the year when they face off against Oklahoma. But they can't look passed K State, who are on a roll right now. I think the Cowboys are one of the best teams in the country.
Kansas State 35     Oklahoma State 48
