0 Kenny's College Football picks

By Kenny Howell

For some reason, I got some picks wrong last week, but only a few. Went 15-3 to lift my record to 28-6 on the season. This week, I don't see many upsets, but, of course, I will get three wrong. Maybe I should start a contest to see if people can guess which three I will get wrong. Anyway, here they are.

No. 1 Alabama 35 Tennessee 17

Tennessee scored the more points off of Florida's defense than anyone this season, and I think it will happen against Alabama. Unfortunately, that is just 17 points. The Vols defense doesn't have enough to get the big upset.

No. 2 Florida 24 No. 7 South Carolina 14


Probably the marquee game of the week. South Carolina is more explosive on D, but Florida is more consistent. The Gators go on the road and knock the Gamecocks out of National Championship contention.


No. 3 Oregon 34 Arizona St. 31


The Ducks come back from their week off, and may be a little flat on the road. They still get the win.


No. 4 Kansas St. 38 No. 13 West Virginia 34


Look like this might be the game of the year in the Big 12, but the Mountaineers were brought back down to Earth against Texas Tech. Will be close, but Collin Klein will get the game winning drive done on the road.


No. 5 Notre Dame 21 BYU 17


The battle of the independents will go to the Irish who continue to just score more than the other guy with a solid defense.


No. 18 Texas A&M 27 No. 6 LSU 21


This is my upset special. LSU is still struggling on offense, and I think the Aggies are explosive enough, especially at home, to pull the upset.


No. 8 Oregon St. 28 Utah 20


Oregon St. hasn't been overpowering, but they keep winning. Should do so again this week.


No. 9 Oklahoma 38 Kansas 17


The Sooners may fall into a trap game environment, but still have enough to get past the Jayhawks.


No. 10 USC 38 Colorado 17


Talk about USC has been quiet lately, but they could work their way back into the mix. Will have no trouble with the Buffaloes.


No. 11 Georgia 38 Kentucky 23


The Bulldogs are still licking their wounds from getting blasted by South Carolina, and still don't have the defense figured out. They will have more than enough to beat the Wildcats.


No. 12 Miss. St. 34 MTSU 21


The Bulldogs haven't played well against lower competition this season, and that might happen again here. The Blue Raiders will be playing without leading rusher Benny Cunningham, who is done for the season.


No. 14 Florida St. 31 Miami 28


Once upon a time, this was the game every year. Now, it might still be a good game to watch, but doesn't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things.


No. 15 Rutgers 20 Temple 19


The Scarlet Knights keep winning, and they will continue to do so against an improving Temple team.


No. 16 Louisville 31 South Florida 21


Louisville is another team that continues to get it done, which might lose their Head Coach to a bigger school.


No. 17 Texas Tech 28 No. 23 TCU 20


The Red Raiders put on a show against West Virginia last week, and might not come out full strength against a declining TCU team. But, they get the win.


No. 19 Clemson 34 Va. Tech 24

Remember when Logan Thomas was going to lead the Hokies back to the top then go first in the draft next year. He's barely competed 50 percent of his passes, and only has 12 TDs to 8 INTs. I am sure some NFL GM will take him because he looks like a good QB, but he hasn't proved it yet.

No. 20 Stanford 23 California 13


The Cardinals may have got robbed last week at South Bend, and they are going to use that as motivation to take down their rival.

No. 21 Cincinnati 31 Toledo 27

The Bearcats are off to a good start this season, but the Rockets are not a pushover. They still should win.

No. 22 Boise St. 31 UNLV17


The Broncos are not as efficient on offense as they have been in the past, but the Running Rebels D is really bad.


Oklahoma St. 34 No. 24 Iowa St. 24


Another upset of the week. I think the Cowboys get it done at home against the Cyclones, who have somehow found their way back into the Top 25. This is also revenge for the Pokes, who had their national title hopes derailed by Iowa St. last year.


No. 25 Texas 59 Baylor 54


Going to be another defense optional game in the Big 12, as Baylor tries to take out their Texas big brother. Longhorns have enough.
