College Football Week 2: What’s On Tap

Posted by in College Football Picks on September 6th, 2010 | Comment »
Week 2 College Football Picks

Four great games are on tap week 2 and I like Alabama.

Here are the big games that are on tap for week 2 of college football:

  • No. 20 Florida State @ No. 7 Oklahoma (-9)
  • Michigan @ Notre Dame (-4)
  • No. 13 Miami @ No. 2 Ohio State (-9.5)
  • No. 19 Penn State @ No. 1 Alabama (-11.5)

We’ll be sure to preview those games. Here are my early thoughts on those games.

I really like Alabama next week. I would absolutely love this spread at -9.5. I think they should win by 14-21. At 11.5, PSU has a shot at covering, but I doubt it.

If Michigan was at home, I would absolutely love that pick, but ND’s home-field advantage is undeniable. I thought Michigan would get 3 in this one, so the 4 is generous. It looks like Rich Rodriguez found his next Pat White in Denard Robinson. Robinson was lights out in the Connecticut game (19/22, 186 passing yards, 196 rushing yards, 1 passing TD, 1 rushing TD) and if he can repeat that type of performance, Michigan could pull off the upset in South Bend.

I think Ohio State wins, but I count on Miami on keeping the game within reach.

Despite Oklahoma not crushing Utah State this past week, I think Oklahoma has no problem covering the 9 points in this game. Florida State gives up a lot of points. Last year Florida State gave up 37 to Florida, 38 to Miami, 49 to Georgia Tech, 27 to North Carolina, 40 to Clemson, and 26 to Maryland. At home, Oklahoma is due for at least 35 and I don’t think the Seminoles can put up 24 against a Sooners defense that will be better prepared by coach this week at home.

I’ll be posting previews for these four games after my NFL picks are up.

What game are you looking forward to most?

  • Ohio State vs. Miami (36%, 4 Votes)
  • Notre Dame vs. Michigan (36%, 4 Votes)
