BH came back to earth last week. Meanwhile, the Skinny was put in the rare position of having one of his picks postponed.
What's in store for this week?
(Last Week: 2-2; Overall: 8-6)
Wake Forest at Army (+3) - Love Army as a home dog. Wake is bad!
Pick: Army getting the field goal.
Kansas State (+5.5) at Texas - Who is picking the ABC/ESPN prime time games? Didn't we suffer enough with Notre Dame-Purdue?
Pick: This is an easy one. Mack is done.
Michigan State (+6.5) at Notre Dame - Speaking of ND, I think they are in for a tough one sandwiched between two road games and OU next week.
Pick: ND wins close.
Boise St at Fresno St (-3.5) - Fresno is the new Boise.
Pick: I'll take Fresno.
SMU (+28.5) at Texas A&M - If that Alabama-A&M game last weekend featured two Big 12 teams, the story line would be about the terrible defenses in Big 12. A&M's D is bad!
Pick: SMU will score points in a letdown spot for A&M.
(Last Week: 2-3; Overall: 11-4)
SMU (+28.5) at Texas A&M - As the Aggies were squaring off against Alabama last weekend, the Mustangs were at home relaxing and reliving glory days while they leafed through the latest Sports Illustrated.
Pick: Pony express.
Arizona State (+7) at Stanford - I still think we might be giving the Cardinal just a little too much love. Here, they're coming off a 3,000-mile road trip.
(By the way, picture all the coaches in the Pac-12 gathered around a conference room table for their annual meeting. Pretty bizarre group, no?)
Pick: Stanford in a squeaker.
Clemson (-14) at North Carolina State - "A double-digit road favorite on a Thursday night? BH, you're giving the gambling gods the finger!" I don't mind taunting the deities when the Wolfpack are involved.
Pick: Let Vic Beasley eat.
West Virginia (+5.5) vs. Maryland - Another road team? What of it. Holgo should have a plan in place exploit the Terps' battered secondary.
Pick: WVU, and make it outright.
Colorado State (+38.5) at Alabama - Would Nick Saban really try to humiliate one of his former lieutenants? Wait, don't answer that.
Pick: Crimson Tide by 35.
