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.
Cincinnati at Louisville Line: Louisville 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 (at least I used to be); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Louisville is 7-0, but the team is due for a loss. It's been barely getting by the likes of South Florida, Southern Miss and Florida International. Cincinnati should be able to knock them off.
College Football Pick: Cincinnati +3 (2 Units) -- Push; $0
Colorado at Oregon Line: Oregon by 45.5. Saturday, 3:00 p.m.
I bet USC as a huge favorite over Colorado last week and won, and I'm going to do the same with Oregon. Colorado just doesn't have the talent to compete with these Pac-12 powerhouses.
College Football Pick: Oregon -45.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Ohio at Miami of Ohio Line: Ohio by 7. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I'm going to have another undefeated team go down. Ohio has barely gotten by 1-7 Akron (at home), 1-6 Buffalo (at home) and winless UMass. Miami of Ohio is much better than those teams and should be able to give the Bobcats their first loss.
College Football Pick: Miami of Ohio +7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Ohio State at Penn State Line: Pick. Saturday, 5:30 p.m.
I've been a part of so many of these emotional "White Out" games. Penn State will take down an Ohio State team that has barely beaten the likes of Purdue and Indiana. This is a great time to fade them because they're traveling off an overtime victory.
College Football Pick: Penn State PK (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440
Syracuse at South Florida Line: South Florida by 2.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
A small play to end the day. South Florida is a junk team that doesn't deserve to be favored over Syracuse.
College Football Pick: Syracuse +2.5 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
For the Vikings it doesn't matter who our RB is if we don't improve the line first. Our first pick HAS to be an offensive lineman. Preferably an OT where we have nobody who should be starting, but it could also be an interior lineman if that's what's available. Obviously the Vikings could spend in FA and improve the line to a point where our first pick can be BPA, but the line is by far and away the number one priority.
I'm not sure why but that diagram made me uncomfortable when skeletor was too close at the end. Not super uncomfortable, but uncomfortable like that feeling you get when you know the ghosts have you cornered and you're out of those super pellets and they're just about to kill you.
