First round of Wilbur Picks, and yes we aim to best last year's atrocious mark thanks to Jessica's return to the DFF.
LSU @ Mississippi State...LSU 35-13....Bengal Tigers roll over Sly Croom & Co. The speed and power of the defense prove to be to much for the Bulldogs as they hold yet another foe to under 100 yards rushing. Matt Flynn & the offense race to an early two touchdown lead and don't look back. Early Doucet scores two touchdowns. LSU covers 18 like a champ 45-12.
Washington @ Syracuse...Washington is in their pivotal rebuilding year under Ty Willingham. Syracuse is still at the botton of the Big East barrell. The Carrier Dome will not be a fun place to be Friday night as Washington walks out with a W. Huskies 23 Orangemen 13....UDub covers 3 with relative ease.
Georgia Tech @ Notre Dame...who is gonna play QB for the Irish?? We won't know til game time however it won't matter to much with a stingy Jacket D that will swarm any Irish attempt. The Tech offense should be much improved as well and Tashard Choice will run all over a slow Domer D. I will take the Yella Stingers all day at plus 2....Tech 27 Domers 17
Oklahoma State @ Georgia...can the Bulldog D stop the potent Cowboy O? That is the question as Fat Matt Stafford & Co. should hang at least 4 TD's on a defense that ranked low yardage allowed but ranked high on big game changing plays. If the UGA runners can get past the line of scrimmage they may run all day long. Okie in the upset covering backdoor 6.5....OSU 30 UGA 28
Kansas State @ Auburn...which Auburn Tiger team is gonna show up? Can Lee Ziemba contain the All Big 12 selection across his face at D-end? Brandon Cox throws for 200 yards and a pair of touches to his new recievers and the Auburn D shuts down K-State's QB (who did not pass his physical until well into August). Groves has two sacks and Blackmon takes one head for his keeping. Tigers roll and cover 14 with ease. Auburn 38 Kansas State 9
The annual ACC Labor Day Classic of Miami-FSU has evolved into the Bowden Bowl. Can Tommy stay off the hot seat? Not without winning an ACC crown. Can FSU's D hold Spiller/James, the best RB duo in the country outside of Arkansas? Will the Seminole offense explode for points as promised? A great matchup to wind up a great weekend. FSU covers 3.5...barely.....Noles 24 Tigers 20.
Ladies & gentlemen, welcome to another season of college football on the Daily Football Fix. It should be a season to remember.
All the Best and War Damn Eagle,
Wilbur Patton Churchill
