This Week’s Football Picks


Last week a number of conference football games were impacted by Hurricane Florence. Thus, those picks are out the window. It’s time to move on to this week’s schedule.

Our three prognosticators started out the week with 23-6 win/loss records and the question is, will they remain tied?

The very games they didn’t see eye to eye on last week in their picks may well be what helps nudge this logjam.

Want to take a closer look at how each team performed? Check out the video highlights at College Football Rewind.

Then browse the ACC Nation Power Poll to see where voters ranked teams.

Those Wildcards

Last week Florida State, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Pitt and Duke were the difference makers. Are there any glaring differences of opinion this week? Only one game is on the list and it should be a doozy.

  • Notre Dame @ Wake Forest

Xayveon picks the nemesis of his favorite PAC 12 team, Notre Dame to win out over Wake Forest. Will and Jim are of the opposite opinion. Can Wake Forest deliver the same effort against the Irish as they did with Boston College? Will home field be an advantage for the Demon Deacons? We’ll find out this weekend.

Are there other games to keep an eye on? Yes and here’s a quick list of games that are far from locks.

  • Pitt @ North Carolina
  • Louisville @ Virginia
  • North Illinois @ Florida State
  • NC State @ Marshall

We all know the old saying about making an assumption. It’s best not to make one regarding the outcome of each of these games.
