Last week saw our Jayson correctly pick all the games we listed. Congratulations, Jayson. You now have the early lead in our contest.
This week sees harder games as the Big Ten opens their season and many of the games we chose were Top 25 teams in action against other top schools.
Clemson #5 at Wake Forest #21
This should be on everyone’s watch list today. Clemson’s DL front vs Wake’s OL.
Florida #20 at Tennessee #11
And so should this be watched by all this Saturday! It’s been one-sided recently with Florida all but owning this series the past 17 years, winning 16 times! But…it’s in Rocky Top. And Tennessee doesn’t waste time on offense. The Volunteers AVERAGE 7.1 yards per play! Mighty impressive!
Wisconsin at Ohio State #3
You want odd? How about 17 again…meaning the last time Wisconsin won in The Shoe! And Wisconsin does one thing well that can slow the Buckeyes down: run the football!
Arkansas at Texas A&M
Unranked, but rivalries are always hard to pick. The Aggies are favored by 1.5 points. Other than that, one team is terrible defending the pass and the other terrible at defending the run!
Mount Union at Muskingum
A battle of 2-0 teams! But the Purple Raiders of Mount Union are ready for the Muskies and their brand new athletic complex, Muskingum’s Bullock Health and Wellness Complex.
MU leads the series 45-29-2 and has won the last 33 games! The series began in 1906…that’s 77 games. Don’t let last year’s 73-7 victory over Muskingum fool you. MU wants to dominate, but Muskingum has other ideas.
The Muskies were basically picked to be at the bottom of the OAC coaches poll but have started 2-0 this year, 1-0 in conference. Head coach Erik Ieuter is in his 5th season at Muskingum, and what better way to get your year off right than a victory over the #3 ranked Purple Raiders!
Here are our selections. Feel free to criticize away!
