0 Kenny's College Football predictions

By Kenny Howell

After a dismal week, I rebounded sort of with a 14-4 record in my picks last week. I am now 75-18 on the season, which is the best record among all humans, I believe. Here are my picks this week.

No. 1 Alabama 28 No. 15 Texas A&M 21

Was Alabama exposed a bit in the passing game last week? It's possible, as Zac Mettenberger, who has had trouble with the forward pass all season, sliced and diced the Bama defense at times. I think A&M may jump out early, like against LSU, but Saban will adjust and come out with the victory.

No. 2 Kansas State 38 TCU 27

The status of Collin Klein is sort of up in the air, as Bill Snyder has been cagey about his star QB. I think with or without him, the Wildcats get a win.

No. 3 Oregon 45 California 24

I think the Ducks can name their score at this point, but Cal may play the stall game again like a few years ago when they pretended that a player got here nearly on every play. The Ducks defense is still not that good either.

No. 4 Notre Dame 38 Boston College 17

The Fighting Irish got a scare from lowly Pitt last week, could it happen again this week. I don't think so. I think maybe the near upset may have woke up Notre Dame and they roll.

No. 5 Georgia 35 Auburn 13

Big time rivalry game looks like it will be a dud this year.

No. 6 Florida 28 Louisiana-Lafayette 14

Florida's defense has been non-existent the last two weeks, and they have played down to lesser competition this year. Why I think this will look rather unimpressive.

No. 7 LSU 24 Mississippi State 10

The Bulldogs got exposed as a bit of a fraud against Bama a few weeks ago, and the Tigers are angry. Plus, it is at LSU.

No. 8 South Carolina 31 Arkansas 21

The Hogs aren't quite as bad as they were to start the year, but they are not good enough to get the road win.

No. 9 Louisville 31 Syracuse 28

The Cardinals keep getting these close, unimpressive wins, but they are wins.

No. 14 Stanford 27 No. 11 Oregon State 24

Oregon State suffered their first loss, and will probably suffer another one against a good Stanford team.

No. 12 Oklahoma 45 Baylor 24

The Sooners have a good enough defense to slow down the Baylor attack.

No. 13 Clemson 34 Maryland 20

ACC football excitement.

Penn State 38 No. 16 Nebraska 34

The Nittany Lions could use this signature win over the Cornhuskers to help keeping the program from sinking into irrelevance.

No. 17 Texas 34 Iowa State 28

The Longhorns are still ranked even though they have looked terrible at times. Iowa State is a decent team.

No. 18 UCLA 27 Washington State 21 

The Bruins looked impressive in blasting Arizona, so they might have a bit of a letdown against Mike Leach's Cougars, but still win.

No. 19 USC 34 Arizona State 28

Now that LANE KIFFIN has got rid of that cheating team manager who deflated balls all by himself without anyone telling him, especially not LANE KIFFIN, who has never cheated in any way in his life. LANE KIFFIN. USC wins.

No. 20 Louisiana Tech 38 Texas State 34

To my disappointment, Texas State does not have Scott Bakula as their starting quarterback and Kathy Ireland as their kicker. That was a joke referring to the 1991 hit Necessary Roughness. I am pretty sure Sinbad does play for them. What else does he have to do.

No. 22 Texas Tech 34 Kansas 27

Kansas is bad. Texas Tech is OK.

No. 23 Rutgers 31 Army 17

Rutgers lost a few weeks ago, but I guess they are still around. Will beat a bad Army team.

Michigan 24 No. 24 Northwestern 21

Every time Northwestern seems poised to make a name for themselves, they suffer a loss. Michigan wins at home.
