Fall's in the Air & Weekend Predictions

With night time temperature dipping into the low 40's around here.....fall is definitely in the air. Last weeks predictions were a little off. We ended up going 3-5, so this week , we'll do a little more research and pray a lot. Anyway here's this weeks College Football picks:
South Carolina (-7) at North Carolina
This border war does not have the same tradition as say a Florida-Georgia, or an Ohio's a border war just the same. UNC is coming of an emotional win against Miami, while USC destroyed an over-rated Kentucky team. The 'Cocks have had an extra couple of days to prepare since they had the Thursday game last week. That's about all Spurrier needs: USC 27, UNC 14.
Alabama (-6) at Ole Miss
The tide lead Houston 23-0 before holding on to home. Nothing impressive about this team. Look for the Rebels to eke out a tight game.......Ole Miss 24, Alabama 20.
Tennessee (-7) at Mississippi State
Go figure Tennessee. In their first 4 games, the Vols could not run...could not stop the run....their pass defense was awful....they couldn't tackle.......Special teams play was poor.....then along comes a bye week and #12 Georgia.....and the Vols smack the dawgs all over the field, 35-14! If they carry that same intensity into Starksville, the game won't even be close......but.....this is the SEC .....and it is just another war on the road. Still......Tennessee has too much talent for a game Bulldog bunch...Tenn 30, Miss St. 14.
Wisconsin (+7) at Penn State
Don't piss off 82 year olds......Jopa has been in the news this week because of this alleged road rage stuff. We thought the Badgers were over-rated last week and it showed in their loss to the Illini. Look for this Penn State team to rally around its coach and come out busting ass. Wisconsin's defense will keep it respectable but the Nitany Lions win and cover....Penn St. 23 , Wisconsin 10.
Missouri (+10) at Oklahoma
Yep......the nations #11th ranked team is a double digit underdog.....but they're play at the #6 Sooners . Bob Stoops is a master at getting his players fired up. They would love to hang 40 or 50 on the Tigers......but Mizzoo is a much better team this year. Oklahoma will win...but not cover. Oklahoma 31, Missouri 24.
