All I have to say is that the college football season is too short.

9. Georgia -14 over Notre Dame
Georgia officials are adding temporary bleachers in Sanford Stadium for this game, expecting it to be the largest-attended game in the history of Sanford Stadium. Georgia big. Georgia mad. Georgia win. WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF!
8. Oregon -10.5 over Stanford.
Stanford took an absolute wholloping against UCF last week. While I think they keep this game closer, Oregon still wins big hoping to cling to its playoff hopes.
7. Michigan State over Northwestern +9.5
Nothing says Big Ten football like losing 7-10. Michigan State kicked a field goal with :06 left to tie the game 10-10, but after review was flagged for 12 men on the field. The field goal was waved off, they moved back five yards, tried again, and they missed.
The commentators hearkened back to one of my favorite moments in the Tennessee-LSU series where Tennessee won the game, got flagged for — not 12, but THIRTEEN — men on the field, then lost the game.
MSU wins, Northwestern covers because I doubt MSU can score more than 17 on Northwestern.
6. Arizona State -7.5 over Colorado
The world scratched their head at Arizona State when they hired Herm Edwards to take over the program. They laughed at Herm Edwards when he said he was going to run the program like a professional team, hiring a General Manager as part of this wild transformation.
Not many people are laughing now as Arizona State finds themselves ranked, undefeated, and more talented than they’ve been in years.
5. Washington over BYU +7
I refuse to count BYU out, but Washington is in a do-or-die situation if they want to make the playoff. In fact, they’re in the same boat as Oregon (except Oregon’s lone loss is a lot better than Washington’s 2am loss to Cal). Cougs keep it close.
4. Texas over Oklahoma State +6
HE’S A MAN, HE’S
FOURTY FIFTY-TWO. THE MIGHTY MULLET MAKES THE MANGO TEAM MARINADE IN THEIR OWN SWEAT.
3. Utah State over San Diego State
I’m not touching this game, even with my faux dollars. SDSU is 3-0 and a 4-point dog to a conference foe that’s 1-1. Something’s up and I don’t like it.
2. Texas A&M over Auburn and the over 48
Yup. I’m calling it. Aggies beat the Tigers in a game where the over squeaks in on a wild final 5 minutes of play.
1. Wisconsin over Michigan and the over 43.
Wisconsin has allowed exactly 0 points scored against them through Week 3. Granted, those games were against South Florida, Central Michigan, and their living room couch, but it’s still impressive. Michigan is struggling to find its offensive rhythm, but they have to find it eventually, right? If not, Michigan’s defense won’t be able to stay off the field and Wisconsin could hit the over by themselves.
