This Week’s Football Picks


Three choices paid off last week and for three of our weekly prognosticators. Duke, USF and ECU paid off as picks but ultimately did not move anyone ahead in the W/L bracket.

Week one picks delivered matching 11-3 records and after all is said and done, the guys end up with 23-6 records. Is there a chance the magical week three will nudge someone into the lead?

The games that they aren’t seeing eye to eye on included Florida State-Syracuse, Georgia Tech-Pitt and Duke-Baylor matchups.

Before we take a look at this week’s picks we’ll go back to last week’s games. Want to take a closer look at how each team performed? Visit our College Football Rewind and check out the video highlights to help you make your choice.

Those Wildcards

Last week Jim took Duke, Will selected USF and Xayveon went with ECU to go against the trend. To goad them into going further out on a limb we have but one thing to say. Even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while.

Who burned them? Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia Tech (with the exception of those acorns). Who played too close for comfort? Notre Dame, Clemson and Florida State.

Taking a look at the differences of opinion this week –

  • Florida State @ Syracuse
  • Georgia Tech @ Pitt
  • Duke @ Baylor

This week’s ACC Nation Power Poll may show a lot of teams clumping together. If history shows us anything it simply means one or more teams are about to make a splash. Who’s ready to break out of the pack and make their mark on the conference or beyond? Who are your picks this week?
