By the way, the fourth-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Central Florida at BYU Line: BYU by 3. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games; I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
BYU was just blown out, but I like them to bounce back as a weeknight home favorite.
College Football Pick: BYU -3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Notre Dame at Pittsburgh Line: Notre Dame by 6.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Notre Dame was always a good team; it just lost a fluke game to underrated South Florida and then was flat at Michigan. The Irish will continue to rebound.
College Football Pick: Notre Dame -6.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Florida State at Clemson Line: Clemson by 2. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Florida State was billed as the next big thing, but suffered a home loss to Oklahoma. I don't think the Seminoles will be able to bounce back from that this week.
College Football Pick: Clemson -2 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Louisiana-Lafayette at Florida International Line: Florida International by 17. Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
This may seem like a totally random game, but I'm wary of teams that have been winning as underdogs and are now favored by a wide margin. This is not a good spot for Florida International.
College Football Pick: Louisiana Lafayette +17 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Tulsa at Boise State Line: Boise State by 28.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Boise State's on a mission - and I'm going along for the ride.
College Football Pick: Boise State -28.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
No way the Raiders draft two white players in the first three rounds. They use only Derek Carr out of 22 starters and began the year with a league-low 4 out of 53 white players on their roster. This is a long-term trend in Oakland, definitely along the lines of an anti-New England philosophy.
NFL combine will change things quite a bit. USED DRAFT-TEK rankings. Been trying to catch as many college games as possible ( they should update their rankings, IE Kaaya is ranked # 2 on the list , Trubisky is ranked out of the top 50 )
Will see teams reach at OT & QB.
