Saturday's College Football Picks

Every week I will pick a number of college and NFL football games against the spread. So if you are in a college football pool please make sure you check in every week for my exclusive selections. Please feel free to re-tweet this out to the world!

Last week's results:

College: 2-4
NFL: 3-1  

**Please note: These selections are for entertainment purposes only**

Arkansas -2 over Georgia

This is the third tough game in three weeks for Georgia and the Razorbacks have had two weeks to prepare for this one. The environment will be loud and festive and in this statement game for Bobby Petrino's program the Razorbacks will get the job done.

BYU -8 over Florida State

The Seminoles will have their hands full dealing with a very good Cougar team that has experience and a standout QB in Max Hall. FSU has speed and athleticism but they don't have the depth to hang with BYU in Provo.

Auburn -7 over West Virginia

Auburn Coach Gene Chizik was booed when he got off the plane for his introductory news conference but he has turned the Tigers faithful around with a very exciting offense and and a deep and talented roster. Georgia has had two straight tough games and they are a bit banged up. Lay the points here as Auburn wins by 10.

Tennessee +30 over Florida

I know that everybody who covers college football is thinking that the bad blood between Florida coach Urban Meyer and Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin will lead Florida to run up the score and cover a huge line between two quality programs. In the end all Meyer really cares about is winning this game and keeping his guys healthy. I don't see them running it just to prove a point. Florida wins easy but the Vols cover

Nebraska +6 over Virginia Tech

The Huskers have had their struggles on the road and quarterback Zac Lee is a first year starter but I have a feeling that Nebraska will take full advantage of a great opportunity to make a statement away from Lincoln. Virginia Tech has to run the ball very well to control the game and against the Nebraska defense that won't be easy. Take the points and don't be surprised if Nebraska wins this game outright.

Stay Away Game of the Week

Michigan State +10 at Notre Dame

The Spartans have won 6 straight games at Notre Dame Stadium which is the longest streak in the history of that great venue. The pressure on Charlie Weis is huge and if his Fighting Irish don't get the job done it could be the beginning of the end for him as the ND coach. However, ND has a better QB, a deeper roster of talent, and they have the home crowd. The intangible is the pressure on the program to win this game. I would lean on MSU to cover but lose the game. Stay away!

My NFL picks will be up late tonight. Have a great day! Kap
