    Which reminds me, if you're looking for a handy college football TV schedule, this is the best one I've found:


    (It's on Central time, so adjust accordingly).

    Without seeing the lines ...

    LSU by a TD in a shootout.
    Alabama by 2 TDs.
    Oklahoma at ND should be pretty good. Going with Okie by 10 or so.
    Wisky at Ohio State. Tough. Buckeyes by I don't know how many.

    Tennessee is -20 at home against South Alabama. Tennessee shoudn't be -20 against anyone.

    I haven't actually seen this -3 aTm line, but I'm betting the house if I see it. Arkansas is scoring less than 30 points a game against UL Laf, Samford, Rutgers and Southern Miss. And with a starting quarterback out, no way they keep up with aTm. Even if they rush for 500 yards.

    I think Okie rolls ND and OSU rolls Wisky - mainly for the same reason - neither team has a good enough QB to beat an elite team, or even a very good team. I don't think any team can survive as a one-dimensional team against Ohio State, and Wisconsin's passing game is just brutal. Stave locks on to his WRs, stares them down, then has a painfully slow delivery. He's at least two picks waiting to happen. So unless Wisconsin's defense plays out of their minds (something the ASU game suggests they're not going to do), I think Ohio Sate wins easily.

    Is Corso going? I hope he got an old beater instead of a nice car, what with his history at that matchup.

    Two books aren't carrying that game, one of which is the one I use. But they will. And I suspect it'll not be 3.

    LSU +3
    S. Alabama +20
    A&M -3

    Parlay or tease that and pay off your car.

    If you can't tell from my post above, I feel really good about Ohio State -7 and Oklahoma - 3 1/2.

    I like Ohio State, too.

    If ND can barely beat Purdue and Michigan State (and loses to what might be a fairly shitty Michigan team, based on the last two weeks), there's no way they can hang with Oklahoma, right?
