My favorite week is here again.
Sadly, I will not be in attendance at the Alabama/Tennessee game when Bama hosts. It’s the first Bama home game in this series I have missed since 1991. No team east of the Mississippi River should kickoff at 8pm CT. Like I predicted, now that the weather has cooled, the TV geniuses are handing out SEC night games.
This week, I’m interested to see how Penn St v Michigan turns out. I think that’s one that could go a lot of ways but will likely not be worth watching late if Michigan doesn’t play up to its potential. Oregon @ Washington may go a long way in deciding the PAC12 North. Meanwhile Arizona St @ Utah could do the same in the South. Any slip by Clemson at this point could be devastating. They play in a conference where Duke v Virginia is now a big game on grass and not hardwood. Oklahoma continues to roll, and LSU has the offense they’ve longed for. And as always, I’ll be monitoring the Mountain West.
My slide continues. The Vegas 5 went 2-3 last week dropping me to 19-16. Top 25/SEC has me suffering at 8-14 for the week and 86-75 for the year.
This week give me the Over (61) when Tennessee visits Alabama. I’ll take Wake Forest (-1.5) when they host FSU. (did I just type that?) I’m going with Arizona (+10) against USC. The Over (63) for West Virginia v Oklahoma. And lastly, Oregon (-2.5) against Washington.
Who do you take?
