Zack: Last Week 2-1

Donnie: Last Week 1-2

Craig: Last Week  0-3

Matt: Last Week 0-3

We all had an opinion on the Sooners last week but we’re not touching them this week…well at least most of us aren’t. Among the games that we do have opinions about are Oklahoma State vs. Central Michigan, Texas Tech at Arizona State, and several others with some Kansas Jayhawks sprinkled in.

Craig

TCU (-7.5) vs. Arkansas | TCU got off to a rough start last Saturday, but came away with the victory in the end.  I expect to see the Horned Frogs bounce back this weekend and take down the SEC.

Iowa (-15) vs. Iowa State | It is always hard for me to pick against the Big 12, but I’ve got to go with Iowa on this one.  Iowa rushed for 5 TD’s last week while Iowa State turned the ball over 4 times.  That will be the difference for the Hawkeyes on Saturday.

Texas Tech (+2.5) at Arizona State | Texas Tech put on an offensive showcase last Saturday against Stephen F. Austin.  The Sun Devils will certainly be a bigger test for the Red Raiders, but I still expect their offense to get the job done.

Donnie

Oklahoma State over Central Michigan by a bunch. A whole bunch. This line doesn’t make sense in my opinion.

Texas beats UTEP, but they fail to cover. I know everyone is all over the Horns as the Big 12 favorite after beating Notre Dame, but I don’t see it yet.

Kansas over Ohio by 10-14 points. The Jayhawks will be 2-0 after Saturday.

Zack

Kansas (-2.5) vs. Ohio | Kansas absolutely destroyed Rhode Island 55-6 last week, while the Bobcats lost to Texas State by 2. Surely Kansas can cover a 2.5 spread. What’s the worst that could happen?

Iowa (-15) vs. Iowa State | The Cyclones lost to FCS foe Northern Iowa…for the SECOND year in a row. In-state rivalry be danged, Iowa will win this one by at least 3 TDs.

ULM (+46) vs. OU | As an outspoken Oklahoma State fan, I was as surprised as anyone at the Sooners’ loss last week. I fully expect them to come out and absolutely destroy the Warhawks. With that being said, I have a hard time picking a team to cover a near 7-touchdown spread. OU will probably ONLY win this one by 6.5 touchdowns.

Matt

TCU (-7.5) vs. Arkansas | Neither team was impressive last week in their openers but the Horned Frogs are was ahead of the Hogs on the offensive side of the ball. Give me TCU by at least eight.

Arizona State (-2.5) vs. Texas Tech | I’m not buying into the Red Raiders but picking up a win on the road could prove me wrong. Don’t see it happening though.

Ohio (+2.5) at Kansas | You gotta show me Kansas. You gotta show me.
