NCAA College Football Pick 'Em - Week 2


Jump in and play at any time!

If you post your picks in the Facebook comment, I'll know who you are (obviously).  If you leave your picks in the comment here, please leave your name.

The lack of challenging games continues into week 2 of the NCAA college football season.

Notre Dame vs. Michigan and South Carolina vs. Georgia headline this week's dance card.

Florida at Miami (Fla.) used to be a marquee matchup any time the two teams played, but the battle for recruiting is the hottest here.

The rest?  I simply tried to pick the games that would produce the closest result either by knowledge or from looking at the point spread.  Enjoy!

Week 1 Recap

Went 11-3 going into Monday night's game between Florida State and Pittsburgh.  Missed two games - Clemson vs. Georgia and BYU vs. Virginia - by a total of six points.  My two reaches, I thought, paid off.  They were UTSA over New Mexico and Northern Illinois over Iowa.  New Mexico has been horrible as of later and UTSA's coach is former Miami (Fla.) head man Larry Coker and Northern Illinois has a Heisman candidate in Jordan Lynch and played in the Orange Bowl.  Iowa is always up for an upset.
