Weekend Predictions

I realize a couple of these games may be kicking off in short order, but I wanted to go ahead and get these in for possible early afternoon discussion:

Texas Tech at Kansas (-2): Kansas 35, Texas Tech 34
Oklahoma (-19.5) at Kansas State: Oklahoma 44, Kansas State 27
Kentucky at Florida (-24.5): Florida 35, Kentucky 14
Duke at Vanderbilt (-10.5): Vanderbilt 24, Duke 17
Oklahoma State at Texas (-13): Texas 44, Oklahoma State 30
Virginia at Georgia Tech (-11.5): Georgia Tech 24, Virginia 14
MTSU at Mississippi State (-10.5): Mississippi State 21, MTSU 17
Ole Miss (-5) at Arkansas: Ole Miss 31, Arkansas 23
Alabama (-7) at Tennessee: Tennessee 24, Alabama 23
Penn State (-2.5) at Ohio State: Penn State 27, Ohio State 20
Southern Cal (-16) at Arizona: Southern Cal 37, Arizona 20
Wake Forest at Miami FL (-3): Miami 24, Wake Forest 20
Virginia Tech at Florida State (-5): Florida State 24, Virginia Tech 23
Nevada (-3) at Hawaii: Hawaii 33, Nevada 30

Finally, the Dawgs and Bayou Bengals (-2.5.) This one figures to be as hard hitting as we've usually seen between these 2 teams. This year I actually expect a little more finesse to win out, and that's why I favor the Dawgs. Look for the Georgia OL to protect Stafford, who should have a big day against the struggling LSU secondary. The Dawgs defense will do just enough.
Georgia 27, LSU 23

8-7 picking the winner against the spread in those 15 games. So it actually wouldn't have been bad for the "benjamins to be ridin' here." It was an off week, but even in most off-weeks I do no worse than break even. Good try though.

Sensitive aren't we? I was looking at the spreads not the winners, so my humble apologies...

11-4 straight up. I missed on Texas Tech badly. My total lack of respect for the Big 12 is really hurting my ability to pick winners.
