Now here's this weeks picks.
No. 12 South Carolina at UCF
The Gamecocks are coming off of a well needed bye week to face a UCF team that is playing some really good football right now. QB Blake Bortles for the Knights has been the definition of consistency throwing for over 800 yards and 7 touchdowns, as well as adding a rushing score as well. Meanwhile South Carolina has been very inconsistent on defense and hasn't truly played up to their potential yet. This could be a trap game for South Carolina, and if there isn't any improvement on defense, look for UCF to make things interesting for the Gamecocks.
Caleb's Pick- South Carolina 35, UCF 24
Carter's Pick- UCF 24, South Carolina 21
Cory's Pick- South Carolina 41, UCF 31
No. 6 LSU at No. 9 Georgia
In this weeks match-up of top 10 teams, LSU heads on the road to take on Georgia, the 1st time Georgia has faced an LSU or Alabama team in the regular season since 2009. LSU has played beyond expectations so far this year due to the fact their offense has now become dangerous and their young defense has stepped up to fill in the shoes of those who left for the draft last year. The Bulldogs have played well so far, but their defense is definitely playing up to par after allowing 21 points to North Texas last week. Whoever wins this game may position themselves to challenge Alabama for the SEC crown.
Caleb's Pick- LSU 34, Georgia 31
Carter's Pick- Georgia 27, LSU 21
Cory's Pick- LSU 24, Georgia 17
No. 14 Oklahoma at No. 22 Notre Dame
In what was a game with national title implications last year has just become a match-up of ranked opponents Saturday. Oklahoma has played two QBs over their 1st three games and neither has positioned them self to take the starting role (although QB Blake Bell dominated an over-matched Tulsa squad). Notre Dame on the other hand has struggled to pull out victories after falling to Michigan. QB Tommy Rees has done a solid job replacing Everett Golson, but the Irish truly miss Golson's ability to create plays when under pressure. Unlike last year, the only thing the winner of this game will have is nothing more than a solid non-conference victory.
Caleb's Pick- Oklahoma 28, Notre Dame 21
Carter's Pick- Oklahoma 34, Notre Dame 24
Cory's Pick- Oklahoma 42, Notre Dame 35
No. 21 Ole Miss at No. 1 Alabama
This game has the smell of a trap game all over it. Ole Miss is playing some of the best football in the country, while Alabama allowed a weak Colorado State team to hang around for a bit last week. If Alabama plays like they did last week, Ole Miss will come into Tuscaloosa and knock off Alabama. If only it were that simple though. Look for Nick Saban to have his guys ready to tackle an Ole Miss squad that would like nothing more than to defeat No.1 Alabama at home.
Caleb's Pick- Alabama 28, Ole Miss 17
Carter's Pick- Alabama 31, Ole Miss 24
Cory's Pick- Alabama 45, Ole Miss 17
No. 23 Wisconsin at No. 4 Ohio State
The Badgers should be undefeated right now if it wasn't for a botched call against Arizona State. Wisconsin has been sitting under the radar this year so far, so just like with Ole Miss/Alabama, this has the making of a trap game. Some people forget that even though this team has lost a lot, the previous three years they had been playing for the Rose Bowl as the Big Ten champs. Ohio State still is a very talented team with one of the best coaches in the game in Urban Meyer, so expect both teams to come into the Horseshoe swinging.
Caleb's Pick- Ohio State 35, Wisconsin 31
Carter's Pick- Ohio State 45, Wisconsin 24
Cory's Pick- Ohio State 38, Wisconsin 24
Arizona at No. 16 Washington
Washington has exceeded expectations so far this year, but this match will be the Huskies 1st true test of the season. Arizona has quietly started off 3-0, beating their 1st three opponents by an average of 35.0 ppg. Washington shouldn't overlook Arizona, but still look for Huskies QB Keith Price to have a great game. Price is one of the most talented QBs in the country, and an under the radar Heisman candidate.
Caleb's Pick- Washington 31, Arizona 21
Carter's Pick- Washington 27, Arizona 20
Cory's Pick- Washington 21, Arizona 17
