    13-2 for week 3, and a repeat performance of 13-2 last week puts me at 39-13 on the season!

    Now for week 5 , and there are some good matchups this week!

    4-0 Alabama @ 4-0 Florida: Both teams come into this game hot. This should be a very good matchup. I called Alabama to win the nationl chmpionship before the season started, and they still could if they lose this game. I am picking the Gators in the swamp to pull it out. Gators 24 Tide 21

    3-1 Arkansas vs. 2-1 Texas A&M:
    An old SWC rivalry about to be reborn again in the SEC. Arkansas wins for the 3rd straight year. Razorbacks 34 Aggies 28

    3-1 Auburn @ 4-0 South Carolina:
    The Tigers don't start off well in what will be a brutal October. Cocks 35 Tigers 17

    3-1 Michigan State @ 3-1 Ohio State:
    Braxton Miller is a superstar in the making. He comes down to earth some from his starting debut against Colorado, but the Buckeyes defense is enough to get the win. Buckeyes 24 Spartans 17

    4-0 Nebraska @ 4-0 Wisconsin:
    Most likely a preview of the Big 10 championship game. Nebraska feels they are at home at first with all the red, but quickly learn they are in a hostile Camp Randle. Wisconsin wins this round. Badgers 38 Huskers 33

    3-0 Texas @ 3-0 Iowa State:
    Normally a game I wouldn't put on here, but Iowa state is looking good after a win over their rival and a tough road win on the east coast. Texas looked a lot better against UCLA. The Cyclones make a statement to the nation with another win over Texas. Cyclones 27 Horns 24

    3-0 Baylor @ 3-0 Kansas State:
    Now this is an interesting matchup. Both teams are looking legit with KSU comign off an impressive win in Miami, and Baylor coming in with a high flying offense led by Robert Griffen. KSU keeps things going to improve to 4-0. Wildcats 45 Bears 42

    4-0 Clemson @ 4-0 Virginia Tech:
    The Tigers recent good run comes to an end as they travel away from home. Hokies 26 Tigers 22

    3-1 SMU @ 3-1 TCU:
    The two bigger non AQ Texas schools battle it out in a high scoring game. Frogs 48 Mustangs 38

    2-1 Air Force @ 2-1 Navy:
    Falcons win this rivlary game. Falcons 27 Shipmen 21


    PAC 12

    2-2 UCLA @ 3-0 Stanford:
    Stanford rolls in this one. Cardinal 45 Bruins 17

    0-3 Oregon State @ 3-1 Arizona State:
    Another mismatch Pac 12 game. Devils 38 Beavers 12

    3-1 Washington @ 2-1 Utah:
    The Utes continue to show they are a legit contender in the Pac. Utes 31 Huskies 21

    2-1 Washington state @ 1-3 Colorado:
    A banged up buff team wins a close one, home field is the difference. Buffs 28 Cougars 24

    1-3 Arizona @ 3-1 USC:
    The Cats losing streak hits four, and losers of 8 of their last 9 games. Trojans 38 Cats 24

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Bama-Florida game go either way since it is in The Swamp but I think Bama is just too good and will win this one. I also think UT beats Iowa State and Baylor beats KjSU. I agree that Wisconsin will beat the corn but I don't think it will be nearly as close as you have it.

    The only Pac game I disagree with is UW-Utah, I like UW in that one.

    Agree. Know KSU won at Miami last week, but I think Baylor should be able to get the W in Manhattan. Iowa State is definitely improved and will go bowling, and while they'll keep it close, Texas will win.

    It'll be interesting to see how Ohio State does this week. I still think they're a 7-5 team, but agree with Leash that homefield gets them the narrow victory in this one.

    Barring a major upset, most of the Pac-12 games are pretty predictable this week. Utah has had a bye week to prepare for Washington so they've got the edge there playing in Rice Eccles, but it'd be nice if UW could drop them to 0-2 in league play.

    I also don't think Clemson will be able to keep it that close in Blacksburg.
