It’s that time again. On with the picks…
Ole Miss 28 Vanderbilt 24 – There’s not much separating these two teams and tonight’s season opener should be a close game.
Florida 38 Toledo 10 – Gator fans are looking for signs of life in their offense. The Rockets should help them feel a tad better.
Kentucky 22 Western Kentucky 21 – It’s entirely possible for Mark Stoops to lose his opener to Bobby Petrino’s Hilltoppers. It’ll be close, but they won’t.
Missouri 34 Murray State 14 – Nothing says college football is back like Missou vs. Murray State.
Arkansas 28 UL-Lafayette 14 – Last year a small-time Louisiana school put a beatin’ on the Hogs. This year, the Ragin’ Cajuns won’t be so lucky as the Hogs win in Bret Bielema’s debut.
Tennessee 45 Austin Peay 10 – Can Butch Jones lead the Vols out of the desert? Who knows, but this easy win over the Governors sure doesn’t hurt.
Auburn 24 Washington State 23 – The Gus Malzahn era starts with a win, albeit a close one, over Mike Leach’s Coogs.
South Carolina 31 North Carolina 17 – Jadeveon Clowney will actually get blocked a couple of times, but it won’t help as the Tar Heels fall to the Gamecocks.
Oklahoma State 31 Mississippi State 30 – There will be lots of offense in this SEC-Big 12 match-up in Houston, but the Dogs fall a little short.
LSU 35 TCU 17 – The Tigers usually play well in big season openers. The Horned Frogs ain’t exactly, big time, but Les Miles and the gang still roll.
Alabama 30 Virginia Tech 17 – A garbage score or two by Tech makes this game look closer than it actually is.
Texas A&M 56 Rice 24 – Are you kidding me? Johnny Football plays and plays well as the Aggies stomp the Owls.
Clemson 35 Georgia 34 – This is clearly the game of the week in college football. The edge in this one goes to the Tigers playing at home.
