OKLAHOMA SOONERS vs TEXAS LONGHORNS (-3.5) Dallas, TX
I just luv the fact Colt McCoy has a silky smooth rhythm going with a great O-Line, while Sammy B is trying to get back into the groove with a inexperienced group up-front. Throw-in a solid speed rush from Texas and Bradford’s two favorite weapons hanging in the training room (TE Grisham-out, WR Broyles-questionable), and I can’t see how the Sooners pull-off something they couldn’t do last year.
I know the Longhorns backfield is banged-up, but just like Urban Meyer didn’t care about Tebow’s bruised-brain and called a half-dozen QB keepers in the second half against LSU, Mack Brown and his pigskin robots will do whatever it takes to get on the gridiron (Jr. Vondrell McGee & Fr. Tre’ Newton – 461 yrds, 5.4 avg, 5 Td). As for the passing game and the sick accuracy of Mr. McCoy, look for the Sooners to overplay Sr. Jordan Shipley (47 rec.) and allow 6-4 So. Dan Buckner (29 rec. 4 Td) and former prized QB-recruit, 6-2 Jr. John Chiles (20 rec.), to burst into the national spotlight.
Final Score: SOONERS 20 LONGHORNS 30
NEVADA WOLFPACK (teased -3) @ UTAH ST. AGGIES
For the first time in a longtime, the Wolfpack entered the season with expectations higher than Snoop Dogg on purple plane...but unfortunetly, they stumbled out the gate like Britney out of club dropping their first three. But since then, the nation’s deadliest rushing attacks has been virtually unstoppable winning their last two contests by a combined score of 100-42 and averaging 642 yard per contest.
Nevada has five players that have rushed for more than 200 yards this season, led by 6-6 Jr. signal-caller Colin Kaepernick (920 passing yards, 66 comp% - 384 rushing yards, 6.5 avg). And Saturday, they face the run-challanged and overall awful (1-4) Aggies that have given-up an average of 32.4 ppg. What else you need hear Fellas?
Final Score: WOLFPACK 24 AGGIES 37
OHIO STATE BUCKEYES (teased -8) @ PURDUE BOILERMAKERS
The (1-5) Boilermakers and their new headmaster are hosting an awful situation…a ridiculously talented defense with an offense littered with NFL-talent embarrassed from their performance last week. Look for Buckeye QB Terrelle Pryor to scamper around for at least 140 yards rushing and to connect on few deep balls to make this a blowout by halftime.
Final Score: BUCKEYES 37 BOILERMAKERS 20
