    ULM @ #2 Texas: Yawn! Texas could hit 70

    #20 BYU vs. #3 OU in Arlington: This is an intriguing matchup. BYU is no pushover, and OU has struggled against these caliber teams in bowls. I think OU wins, but it will be closer than most think.

    #13 Georgia @ #9 Okie st.: This is gonna be a fun matchup and the winner will make a statement towards being a contender in their confrence or even on the national stage. I actually think Okie States triple threat on offense in Stillwater will be too much for Georgia. Pokes win a thriller.

    North Dakota @ Texas Tech: Really? I say the Sioux wins!!! If we are playing hockey that is! haha

    Baylor @ Wake Forest: Baylor is a team on the rise with a dangerous QB. This is an opportunity for them to make a statement. I think the Deacons win pretty easy though.

    New Mexico @ Texas A&M: NM almost beat aggy last year at home. This will be another close game, but aggy finds a way to win.

    Florida Atlantic @ #24 Nebraska: Fla Atl is a team on the rise as well, however I don't think they are good enough to give the skers much of a scare.

    CSU @ CU: Pfft, buffs baby. Pound that rock!!!!

    Massachusetts @ Kansas St.: Awwwww how cute, grandpa gets a cupcake as a welcome back present, just like old times.

    Northern Colorado @ #25 Kansas: Would love nothing more to see the Bears give them a game, but it aint happening. UNC is not that good in AA, they will get killed by the Hawks

    Illinois vs. Mizzou in St. Louis: Mizzou took the last two, now it's the Iliini's turn with the offensive firepower. Illinois beats Mizzou.

    North Dakota St @ Iowa St.: Easy game for Rhoads' debut. 1st Big 12 game of the year, thursday night.

    OU will blow out BYU Unleash... BLOW OUT. :thumbsup:



    Big 12 playing a lot of sorry ass games..



    The Boone Pickens State/Georgia game is intriguing.. I didn't feel that way a month ago, but now with the season starting a week from now, I'm really interested in seeing it..

    I wouldn't be surprised in the least if NDSU beat the Clones...they're one of the better I-AA teams and ISU has a history of tripping up against lesser opponents...

    I doubt it, BYU hangs with the Sooners.

    In the only 2 real non-CU games of interest, I think BYU gets pounded by at least 20, and UGA wins by 7

    EDIT: MU Illinois is an interesting game, but I have no feel. I'll go with MU for no reason in particular

    Not all three, but I would be willing to lay down some serious vbucks on the Sooners. I have a lot of vbucks around here somewhere.

    I'm taking the points. Word is around town is that BYU's O-line is too young and will get crushed.
