Weekly Game Guide

Penn State is a NL according to the Altoona Mirror.

Nebraska is a one point fave in their Thursday Night game against Missouri.

In the Big Ten:

Sparty is a 4 point fave on the road against Illinois. Who do we root for? I guess we gotta go with Sparty on this one.

Minnesota is a 4 point fave at home against the Boilermakers. We don't play Purdue, so this is an easy one. GO GOPHERS!

Northwestern is a 20 fave against Miami . . . of Ohio. Go Wildcats!

!*w@ is a 7.5 home favorite against THEM. Despite my better judgment, and going against my very core, I have to root for TH . . . TH . . . THE HAWKEYES. No seriously. The Hawkeyes have to lose two games for us to outright win the conference. A tie is possible if they only lose one (assuming we win out of course) but they hold the head to head tie breaker and haven't been to the Rose Bowl as recently as we have. They would get the nod. SO GO . . . TH. I'm sorry, I still can't type that out loud.

Indiana is a 7 point dog to Virginia. Man, that's embarrassing all by itself. GO HOOSIERS!

The Buckeyes are 16 point faves at home to defeat the Badgers. We don't play Wisconsin, so we gotta root for the Buckeyes. We also want OSU as ranked as high as possible when they come Beaver Stadium.

In other games of interest:

The beleaguered F$U Seminoles are slight (2.5 pts) favorites over the Yellow Jackets of Gerogia Tech. Come on Ramblin' Wreck---finish Bobby off now for good.

Florida is a favorite over LSU in Louisiana by 11.5. Both teams are undefeated.

Texas is big over Colorado (who lost to Toledo.) 31.5 points might not be close enough.

Virginia Tech is favored by 13.5 over the BC Eagles. GO EAGLES!

Former Opponents:

Syracuse is a 9.5 dog to the Mountaineers.

Akron is a 4 point underdog to Ohio.

Temple is favored over Ball State by 13.5
