Georgia Tech (-4.5) at Mississippi State- Will Georgia Tech score 4.5 points?  If they do, that will be 4.5 more than the Bizarro Bulldogs score.  After Coach Johnson fixed what was not working, and that is what the great coaches are supposed to do, Tech seems to be playing up to their preseason expectations.  Tech covers in a big way and the nerds will gloat how they will beat the other Bulldogs in November, since that is all they cling to.   

Ohio State (-16.5) at Indiana-   After nearly coming up with the upset over USC, Ohio State has been playing good football the last two weeks.  They have posted consecutive shut outs.  Jim Tressell has been receiving near Willie Martinez levels of criticism in Columbus for his conservative play calling.  Indiana nearly beat Meeeechiagan at the Big House last weekend; nothing would shut up those idiot Buckeye fans more if they beat a team worse than Michigan did.  Look for The Ohio State to cover against Indiana. 

North Carolina State (-1) at Wake Forest-  NC State is giving one to Wake.  Wake is a good, sound football team that plays very smart.  They won’t play smart enough to stop Wolfpack QB Russell Wilson.  After being stymied by a good South Carolina defense, he has caught fire the last week weeks.  He has thrown for over 900 yards and 12 touchdowns after an abysmal performance against the Gamecocks.  NC State was supposed to play spoiler in the ACC Coastal/Atlantic this year.  They will start to prove it this weekend with a win over the Demon Deacons. 


Florida State (-4.5) at Boston College-While Florida State looked embarrassing at home last week to South Florida, they should have no problem with Boston College. The Eagles have MAJOR issues at QB. Expect FSU to bounce back with a conference road win. Take FSU and lay the points.

Arkansas (PK) at Texas A&M-Bobby Petrino is a good coach. Mike Sherman not so good coach. Petrino will not allow the Razorbacks to lose three straight. Take the Hogs.

Houston at UTEP (+ 16.5) Houston is still celebrating a huge win over Texas Tech. Expect a huge hangover against the Miners of UTEP. Take UTEP and the 16.5


Florida State +5 

Penn State +6.5

Notre Dame -13


Clemson (-13.5) at Maryland– Clemson is almost like UGA in the fact that they rarely cover the spread, except when you don’t expect them to. This is one of those cases where they should, so I’m going to take Maryland and the points. Clemson plays to the level of their competition almost as bad as Georgia, and while they may win, it won’t be by 2 TD’s. Take Maryland and the points.

Penn State (-7) at Illinois– Look for the Nittany Lions to try and avenge last weeks loss by racking up the style points against an overmatched Illinois team. Though the Illini typically play PSU pretty tough, I think they get blown out this week. Give the points and take PSU.

UNLV at Nevada (-3.5)- Vegas will be jumping for this game! Take the dog and the points here, UNLV with the outright win against their in-state rival!
