    USC and VaTech seem like nice plays.

    Why did you expect Texas to be favored, Steak?

    Well, Texas sucks, but it's not like Cal is any good either. They're barely "receiving votes" in the Top 25.

    For them to be a touchdown favorite playing two time zones away is a bit of a surprise to me.

    As for the other games, am I crazy to think Georgia Tech wins big at ND?

    You're not crazy about GT, no. I think that could definitely happen.

    I like BYU getting 16.5, too. And probably Kentucky getting a FG.

    Auburn getting more than a TD against a team that can't pass seems weird. If Auburn scores first, it'll cover.

    Colorado being favored is a bigger surprise than Cal.

    Let the Bret Bielema death march begin. Lose at home to Toledo last week. You lose at home this week to Tech (WHICH THEY WILL)......It could be a very long year for WPS.

    Ole Miss @ Alabama could be very good.
    Me thinks Texas gets shit-housed against Cal.
    BYU getting 16.5 at UCLA seems like a bunch.
    As does South Carolina getting 17.5 at JoeJa who looked like UGA shit at Vandy.
    Louisville should be more of a dog than 5.
    Nebraska at Miami has more of a "who gives a shit" game than it probably should.

    Tech couldn't stop Allen High School. Hogs aren't great but they'll run all over the Red Raiders.

    Take the over, Chef.

    Really, Steak should add the totals to his weekly post. C'mon, man. Get your shit together. :)
