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.
Houston at Tulane Line: Houston by 34. Thursday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (though not this year); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
I've been on Houston for the past few weeks, and I'm going to keep riding them. They're going to win out and claim the co-national championship by beating some crap team in a crap bowl.
College Football Pick: Houston -34 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400
Nebraska at Penn State Line: Nebraska by 3.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Joe Paterno has been fired. The Penn State football players have spent the entire week meeting with Paterno, rallying for Paterno and doing other things that don't include preparing for this football game. I don't know how the hell they can possibly beat Nebraska considering the circumstances.
College Football Pick: Nebraska -3.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech Line: Oklahoma State by 17. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
Oklahoma State nearly lost to Kansas State. I wasn't really too impressed, and they could easily lose to a Texas Tech squad that took down Oklahoma.
College Football Pick: Texas Tech +17 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Western Kentucky at LSU Line: LSU by 41. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
I don't see Western Kentucky keeping up with LSU at all.
College Football Pick: LSU -41 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Alabama at Mississippi State Line: Alabama by 18. Saturday, 7:45 p.m.
Alabama will be flat off its loss to LSU. Their offense sucks anyway, so covering 18 points will be difficult.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State +18 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
@Bear Down I love that he is throwing resources at QB not just drafting one at some point in the later rounds of every draft. Pace found a QB he believes is a franchise QB and made sure he got him. I believe he really wanted Trubisky and wasnt going to just settle for any of the first round QBs
@rundemc You're forgetting about Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen in the 2018 draft as both players offer much more physical upside and playmaking abilty than Trubisky. Also keep in mind that Trubisky was just a 1 year starter in college football and those quarterbacks tend to have a high bust rate (think Mark Sanchez). The main problem that I had with the Bear's draft is I didn't like the Trusbiky trade as it was unnecessary and they could've gone drafted that TE in the 3rd or 4th round probably. Also as a Bucs fan, I wouldn't be that excited about Glennon.
