Today's College Football Picks

Notre Dame (-7.5) at Pitt
Notre Dame finds their offensive identity today and scores at will once they reach the red zone. Expect Michael Floyd and Cierre Wood to have multiple touchdown games.
Prediction: Notre Dame 42 Pitt 17

San Diego State (+10.5) at Michigan
I like the Aztecs in the Brady Hoke Bowl. SDST can run the ball against a weak Michigan defense. In what should be a thriller the Aztecs won't have an answer for Denard Robinson.
Prediction: Michigan 35 SDST 32

North Carolina at Georgia Tech (-7)
Tech leads the nation in rushing and scoring. North Carolina has a new coach and an overrated defense. Georgia Tech rolls in this one.
Prediction: GT 38 North Carolina 21

Georgia (-10) at Ole Miss
Ole Miss won't be able to stop Isaiah Crowell or Aaron Murray. The Rebels looked awful last week vs Vandy in a blowout loss. I don't think playing at home will matter. Georgia is the much better team here and will play better on the road.
Prediction: UGA 42 Ole Miss 20

Oklahoma State at Texas A&M (-4.5)
Both of these Big 12 teams are top 10 and both have high powered offenses. What I like about the Aggies is RB Cyrus Gray. He's the X factor in this game. Plus the Cowboys defense is average at best.
Prediction: A&M 45 Okie St 35

Arkansas (+11) at Alabama
Despite Arkansas starting a true freshman at left tackle I just feel like this game will be close even though on paper Bama should roll. I don't feel comfortable at all on this bet so be cautious.
Prediction: Bama 27 Arkansas 20

Rice at Baylor (-21.5)
Robert Griffin will run and pass all over the Rice Owls.
Prediction: Baylor 58 Rice 21

LSU (-5.5) at West Virginia
LSU is the best team in the country and their defense is fucking sick. The Mountaineers have a good team and were one of my sleeper picks for the BCS Title with Geno Smith at QB. But right now I've made a shitload of money with the Bayou Bengals and I see no reason to get off the train.
Prediction: LSU 24 West Virginia 14
