Picks of the Week

A perfect week last weekend going 3-0 to bring the season record to 29-20. We've only got a few weeks left so here's to closing it out strong.

Arkansas at Tennessee - This game is a pick em and I'm going with the Razorbacks. Darren McFadden is finally getting healthy and showing the form that made him the Heisman runner up last season. He'll keep making his push for the trophy this year with a big performance in Knoxville.

Purdue -4.5 vs. Michigan State - Purdue is coming off a tough loss to Penn State but they should be ready to handle a Spartan team that has lost 3 straight. The secondary of Michigan State will not be able to handle the WR's of Purdue and Curtis Painter should have a big game.

Utah -13.5 vs. Wyoming - The Utes are rolling coming off 3 straight victories and host the Cowboys of Wyoming who just had a tough loss to San Diego State. I expect Utah to keep the streak going with another big victory.

Oregon State -5 vs. Washington - The Huskies finally ended their losing streak by beating Stanford last week but it will at one as the Beavers look to rebound from their loss to USC and become bowl eligible with one more victory.

Utah State +24.5 vs. Boise State - Utah State is having a rough season but they have kept fighting as many of their losses are very close. Combine that with the trouble that Boise State has when playing away from the blue turf and Utah State should be able to keep it close enough to cover.

Hawaii -17 vs. Fresno State - Hawaii is like Boise State, great at home and bad on the road. Continuing with that trend since Hawaii is still unbeaten and at home I expect them to try to put on a show because they know they still need to rise a bit in the rankings to guarantee a BCS bowl bid.
