Saturday College Football Open Thread
Last night, I made an "investment" that there would be less than 70 total points scored in the Oklahoma State-Iowa State game. I've been "investing" on Okla State all year but the line was 28 on the road, so I laid off. On my mind was the news earlier in the day that Oklahoma St.'s head woman's basketball coach and his assistant had died in a plane crash. I was thinking if it is on my mind, I imagine it was on the mind of the Okla St. athletes.
Okla. St., who was positioned to play in the BCS championship game if they could beat Oklahoma at the end of the season, lost in 2OT to Iowa State last night. The BCS is yet again in disarray. We need only one more occurrence to make it perfect chaos - LSU losing to Arkansas. Then you would have 3 one loss SEC West teams. There should be a playoff, and the players should be paid with the windfall.Here are my picks today - Missouri -18 over Texas Tech, Cal +19 over Stanford (3 units), Miami (Fla) -1 over South Florida, Cinn. -3 over Rutgers, Oregon -15 over USC (3 units), Ohio State -7 over Penn State (3 units), Tennessee +1½ over Vandy (2 units), BC +25 over Notre Dame (2 units), Florida State -17 over Virginia (2 units), Texas A&M -31 over Kansas (2 units)
5pm update - forgot the best bet - Oklahoma (-16) over Baylor (10 units). Game is tonight.
