1. SDSU @ MICHIGAN, 12:00 p.m. EST (9/24)
GRAHAM predicts MICHIGAN
It's going to be close. Everyone knows it's going to be close. Michigan is primed for a let down game, primed for an opponent to score early and score again, putting the Appalachian State fear into the crowd.
JON predicts MICHIGAN
I can't believe we're even picking this game. Brady Hoke knows the Aztecs inside and out. UM gets the win.
2. FSU @ CLEMSON, 3:30 p.m. EST (9/24)
3. COLORADO @ OHIO STATE, 3:30 p.m. EST (9/24)
GRAHAM predicts COLORADO
Unlike Ohio State, Colorado can pass the ball. Sure, they don't have a defense and the Bucks are at home...but no one fears OSU right now. I'm picking the upset...Could this be the Ohio State version of 2008 Michigan?
JON predicts OHIO STATE
4. OKLAHOMA STATE @ TAMU 3:30 p.m. EST (9/24)
GRAHAM predicts TAMU
Every year, the Cowboys should be a Top 10 (even Top Five?) team. Favorable schedule, big-time offensive weapons, nice home crowd. Every year they end disappointing. Don't be seduced by the passing game, TAMU at home is monstrous.
JON predicts OKLAHOMA STATE
5. NDSU @ MINNESOTA 7:00 p.m. EST (9/24)
GRAHAM predicts MINNESOTA
Oh my, I wanted this upset bad. But then I saw Gray run the ball against Miami...and I realized his scrambling is the offensive security blanket they've never had.
