0 Kenny's College Football predictions, Oct. 24

By Kenny Howell

Did a little better last week, meaning I was one loss less than the previous two weeks. I went 19-2 for the week, and improved to 47-8 on the season. Here are my picks for this week.

No. 1 Alabama 28 No. 11 Miss St. 14

The top two teams in the nation, I believe, in turnover margin, so this should be a pretty good game. I just think Bama has more on both sides, and should keep the Bulldogs at bay.

No. 2 Florida 31 No. 10 Georgia 21

Despite the big loss to South Carolina, Georgia could take the SEC East lead with a win here. Don't think it will happen though. Gators are too efficient.

No. 3 Kansas St. 31 No. 14 Texas Tech 24

Tommy Tuberville has the Red Raiders playing well, but I don't think they got enough for K-State, especially in Manhattan.

No. 4 Oregon 49 Colorado 21

Oregon starters should be out by early in the third quarter. Buffs get a few scores on the backups late.

No. 8 Oklahoma 28 No. 5 Notre Dame 20

The Fighting Irish have been good all year, but I don't think they have played a stellar offense. The Sooners aren't amazing, but they can be explosive. Enough to get it done against Notre Dame.

No. 7 Oregon St. 27 Washington 20

The Beavers win boring, but they win. Should get another this week.

Arizona 34 No. 9 USC 27

Just feeling another slip up for the Trojans, as the Wildcats have been good at times, and could be at home.

No. 12 Florida St. 38 Duke 23

Duke has been a great story, but they don't have enough to match up with the Seminoles.

No. 13 South Carolina 34 Tennessee 28

Tennessee has played some good teams close, and I think this could be the same. That is if the team hasn't checked out for the season, which some people are saying. Then it will be a blowout, and Dooley could be looking for a new job.

No. 15 Rutgers 27 Kent St. 21

Rutgers hasn't played anybody really, but they also haven't lost. Should keep that going against Kent St.

No. 16 Louisville 27 Cincinnati 24

Cincy was knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten last week, so this should be a tight game. The Cardinals should get it done at home.

No. 17 Stanford 31 Washington St. 17

Mike Leach's team is bad, but they can score. Stanford will be in control the whole game in this one and come away with the win.

No. 18 Clemson 34 Wake Forest 24

Tigers are better than the Demon Deacons. That's my analysis.

No. 20 Texas A&M 28 Auburn 17

Auburn's defense isn't terrible, but they have zero offense. I think they may give a decent effort at home and make it look a little better than it is.

No. 21 Boise St. 28 Wyoming 20

The Broncos aren't destroying everyone, but they are winning. Should follow suit here.

Nebraska 31 No. 22 Michigan 28

Two teams that can dominate lesser competition, but can't get it done in big games. The Cornhuskers are slightly better, especially at home.

No. 23 Texas 31 Kansas 28

Texas' defense is terrible, so Charlie Weis will get some scores, but the Longhorns will win.

Miami (Ohio) 38 No. 24 Ohio 31

Ohio gets ranked, but I don't think it will last in the battle of Ohios.

No. 25 Wisconsin 24 Michigan St. 17

Battle of disappointing Big 10 teams will see Wisconsin squeaking out the win.
