Week 10 Predictions

Posted on October 31, 2013 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (0)
18-7 this year. Got the upset pick right for only the second time.

#7 Miami 17 @ #3 Florida State 42
This is the game where Miami's not number 7 team gets destroyed. Although, Clemson was also beat down by Florida State and they are at least top 25 material.

#18 Oklahoma State 38 @ #15 Texas Tech 31
Texas Tech drops their second straight. The Big 12 race should be fun this year with OK St., Texas, OU, and Baylor.

#21 Michigan 20 @ #22 Michigan State 21
I think this game will be very close, however, it won't be what one would call a great game. It gets ugly at times and the superior Spartan D will get the win.

Upset: Not a very good week of football this week. I guess #24 Wisconsin 24 @ Iowa 27

#4 Ohio State 38 @ Purdue 14
Ohio State is not that pumped for this game, so they play sloppy and only win by 24.

Week 9 Predictions

Posted on October 24, 2013 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Fell apart last week with a 1-3 showing, now 16-5 this year

#12 UCLA 30 @ #3 Oregon 52

Oregon is real good. I'm picking the Ducks to win the championsihp right now.

#21 South Carolina 21 @ #5 Missouri 27

I didn't know if Missouri was going to survive with Mauk, but they thrived and will win this one at Columbia, MO that is, on their way to their first SEC title game.

#6 Stanford 24 @ #25 Oregon State 31

I still do not know how Oregon State managed to lose to Eastern Washington. Oh well, the Beavers will beat Stanford in Corvallis and that is more important anyway.

#10 Texas Tech 31 @ #15 Oklahoma 33

The last time here, Tech pulled a huge upset, but Texas Tech's dream season comes to an end as Kingsbury suffers his first loss. 

Upset: not feeling any upset so I will go with Duke 28 @ #14 Virginia Tech 24

Week 8 Predictions

Posted on October 17, 2013 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

15-2 on the season

#5 Florida State 38 @ #3 Clemson 34

As I do every year, I'm going with Florida State to beat Clemson. I know its in Clemson, but I just like Florida State more. It will be the second great game of the year on Saturday night in Clemson.

#24 Auburn 24 @ #7 Texas A&M 40

After nearly nailing my upset pick last week (A&M won on a last second FG rather than lose), I'm going with the Aggies this week. I don't think Auburn is a legit top 25 team.

#9 UCLA 31 @ #13 Stanford 24

Is this the beginning of an end to the Luck era of sucess at Stanford. After a loss to Utah and a near loss to Washington, I see UCLA winning this one and Stanford on their way to 4 losses this year. Unfortunately, I don't think Stanford can sustain 10 win seasons for much longer.

#22 Florida 30 @ #14 Missouri 24

Picking my third road team of the week, something I normally don't do. Franklin's absence is the difference maker as I would go Mizzou otherwise.

Upset: I still like Ole Miss, but don't think they can get it done over LSU, Georgia is injured and will struggle with Vandy, but the shocker will come in Fresno, UNLV 42 @ #17 41

Purdue 7 @ Michigan State 31

This would make it Purdue's second closest loss of the season. WOO!

Week 7 Predictions

Posted on October 9, 2013 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)

13-1 this season

#2 Oregon 45 @ #16 Washington 30

I think Washington is a good, but not quite great, team this year. I don't think that the fourth down completion at the end of the game last week had suficient evidence to overturn (I don't think he caught it however, it should have stood). If it stands the Huskies could go for the second top 5 upset in two weeks. Oregon is a different beast than Stanford and I think no one outside the SEC can realistically beat the Ducks.

#25 Missouri 34 @ #7 Georgia 37

Georgia is really hurt right now, but I think the home atmosphere and Murray are enough to overcome a very good Missouri squad. I have a man crush on Aaron Murray and have for three years. Just thought you would like to know.

#17 Florida 24 @ #10 LSU 34

After putting the Gators on upset alert and looking stupid last week, I have a higher opinion of Florida now. Does that mean they will beat LSU? No. Mettenberger and the LSU offense is too good. LSU continues on a path to Tuscaloosa on 11/9 for the West crown. That's right, no respect to Manziel.

#9 Texas A&M 33 @ Ole Miss 34

That's right! no respect for Manziel and A&M. Ole Miss blocks an XP to win with 5 seconds to go.

Nebraska 41 @ Purdue 17

Nebraska goes for 300+ on the ground as Purdue can not stop the run ever. Etling ends the day 29-52 with 347 1TD and 3 INT, but it's still better than playing Henry at this point, as this is a dead season. I can't remember Purdue ever winning less than 4 games in a season, but that is gonna change.


Week 6 Predictions

Posted on October 3, 2013 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

10-1 on the season

#4 Ohio State 38 @ #16 Northwestern 31

I really hope Northwestern can pull this off. Gameday will be in Evanston and here's to hoping that the stadium will be full of purple, but there will probably be lots of red around. The game is high scoring and the crowd gets loud for a final stop to get the ball back down 7, but OSU runs out the clock.

#15 Washington 20 @ #5 Stanford 28

The Pac-12 North may be the best division in the nation and the fun gets started Saturday night with the Huskies in Palo Alto. Price gets off to a bang, but fades in the second half and Stanford continues a decade of great football. Washington will pass 7 wins this year.

#25 Maryland 20 @ #8 Florida State 42

Does anyone think this will be close?

Upset: Arkansas 27 @ #18 Florida 24

Florida hasn't looked too hot this year and Arkansas kicks a game winning field goal in the Swamp.

Week 5 Predictions

Posted on September 26, 2013 at 7:45 PM Comments comments (0)

6-1 this year

#1 Alabama 38 @ #21 Mississippi 21

Alabama gets off to a slow start, but they are Alabama and are too good to lose to a pretty good, but not amazing Ole MIss squad.

#23 Wisconsin 24 @ #4 Ohio State 27

I think I would go with Wisconsin in Madison, as I believe these teams are pretty even. I think playing Miller will hurt the Buckeyes as they only take a three point victory

#6 LSU 31 @ #9 Georgia 34

LSU's passing offense is way better than it's been in the past. I think this will be a great game, but Georgia has the experience playing top competition this year and will use that experience to lead to a win in Athens.

#14 Oklahoma 24 @ #22 Notre Dame 20

I don't think either of these teams are very good, but Oklahoma will pull of the victory.

Upset: Arizona 31 @ #16 Washington 28

I've been impressed by both of these teams this year, but this is the best upset option.

Northern Illinois 24 @ Purdue 21

Against one of the worst defenses in America, Purdue can't put up over 300 yards. Maybe Appleby next week.

Week 4 Predictions

Posted on September 19, 2013 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

#23 Arizona State 24 @ #5 Stanford 28

It will be a good one in Palo Alto. Stanford hasn't proved a lot so far this season and Arizona State may have lost to Wisconsin (we will never know if the field goal is good or not). From now on Arizona State and Wisconsin each have a half win and loss. So Arizona State is 1.5-.5 heading into the week.

And that is the only top 25 game of the week.


Upset: Michigan State 17 @ #22 Notre Dame 14, not much of an upset, but nothing to choose from this week.


Purdue 20 @ #24 Wisconsin 35

Purdue doesn't do too poorly, however, they still can't stop Wisconsin's running attack. It doesn't matter who the coach is or who the running back is.

Week 3 Predictions

Posted on September 11, 2013 at 10:45 PM Comments comments (0)

2-0 again last week, 4-0 on the season.

 

#1 Alabama 31 @ #6 Texas A&M 21

 

Bama's offense struggled in their one game against Virginia Tech, so the defense will need to play well. I think that the hype for this game will help Alabama. They will be pumped up for revenge whether they will admit it or not. Manziel will be held in check and there will be a decent number of personal fouls for fights involving a certain quarterback.

 

#16 UCLA 31 @ #23 Nebraska 38

 

College football seems to be getting higher scoring every year that passes. I remember when top SEC games would be 10 to 7, now it seems like every game between good teams is in the 30's, as I expect this to be. I think the home field advantage willl be significant. Hundley and Martinez both play well with a Nebraska TD in the final two minutes to win.

 

Upset: Vanderbilt 24 @ #13 South Carolina 21

 

South Carolina seems to be in a state of disarray. I think they are vulnerable and Vandy is ready to spring the upset.

 

#21 Notre Dame 35 @ Purdue 10

 

I'm being generous to Purdue here. Last Saturday I was planning on predicting 45-3, but I've decided Purdue may finally start playing better. Although when playing better is losing to #21 by 25 points, the season is going nowhere. Henry can't pass and they can't block. The touchdown will probably be in meaningless time and may not even be scored by the offense. Last year's loss to Michigan was actually Purdue's only 30+ point home loss since 1990. This could be the second.

2013 Week 2 Predictions

Posted on September 5, 2013 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Got both games last week correct with the correct scoring margin. It will be tough to beat that.


#6 South Carolina 27 @ #11 Georgia 34

Georgia finally beats South Carolina and does so without anyone getting injured during a celebration. Murray plays well and Clowney is blocked well enought to give Murray the time he needs to play well. Both the teams could still be playing for the National Championship come January.

 

#14 Notre Dame 20 @ #17 Michigan 21

Unlike the first game in which both teams faced real tests last week, neither of these two did. That makes it very difficult to predict the winner and I will lean towards the home team in a close game. Tommy Rees is unable to make enough big plays to take the W.

 

Upset: No one in the top 10, save SC, has much of a matchup this week. I will take #12 Florida 20 @ Miami 24. Is it a real upset? probably not.

 

Purdue 42 Indiana State 16

Purdue has never lost to an FCS school nor won by less than 10 so this should be a good, easy win for the Boilers. The first under Hazell.

About

National leaders are updated weekly. Conference and school leaders are updated yearly.

This site has the most comprehensive list of all-time college football individual statistical leaders online. Every stat on this site is based on the NCAA official rules, not the school or conference rules (no bowl games prior to 2002). Defensive stats, not including interceptions, did not become official until 2000. That is why you will see two lists; one is the official one since 2000, the other is more inclusive with the start date based on when most schools began reporting defensive stats.

Some defensive stats are marked with a single asterisk (*). This means that bowl games were included in the statistics reported by the school, therefore, the player's per game average has been subtracted for each bowl game played.

Other defensive stats are marked with two asterisks (**). This means the value is only approximated, based on the statistics that could be found.
