College Football Open Thread
Early with this today as I have to go out. Today is the 4th Saturday in October. Apparently in the SEC, math is not a strong suit, as the Alabama-Tennessee game is today, instead of the traditional 3rd Saturday in October. Alabama is probably the best team in the country. Bama's RB Mark Ingram is clearly the best player in the country. Tennessee has a good defense. Vols QB Crompton played great against Georgia (most QBs have). The game is in Tuscaloosa. Bama is a two touchdown fav. I like the VOLS (+14) to keep it close.
LSU hosts Auburn, which is reeling after a strong start to the season. Strangely, this is not the ESPN SEC game tonight (Florida- Miss State is). I think AUBURN (+7.5) bounces back tonight and wins outright. More . . .
Boise State travels all the way to Hawaii in a WAC matchup. They are big favorites despite their unimpressive performance against Tulsa last week. I think the BRONCS (-25) win big.
In minor conference action, Iowa travels to East Lansing to face Sparty. The undefeated Hawkeyes are NOT favored here. I like IOWA (+1).
Michigan hosts Penn State. Penn State will run over the Wolverines, who are about to spit the bit on this season imo. Take the Nittany Lions (-4.5).
Arkansas scared the bejeebus out of the Gators last week. They are quite good I think. I like the HOGS (+6) to beat Ole Miss in Oxford.
In other action, I like Clemson (+5), Minnesota (+16.5), GA Tech (-6), Purdue (-11) and Notre Dame (-7.5).
For the season, I am 25-15 against the spread (.625).
Go Gators! Go Yankees!
