Colorado (+17) over West Virginia
Purdue (-7) over Northwestern
Minnesota (-2.5) over Wisconsin
Vandy (+8.5) over Mississippi

Both on the Gophers.

Man, I can't figure that team out. Thought they came into the season a little overrated, but they are just all over the map for me.

There are a few teams each year I can't pull the trigger on for or against. The Gopher look like one of them.

That was just my initial guesses without looking in to it much. I don't know. It's Wisconsin's first road game after four at home. Five in a row for Wisky over the Gophers. I'm thinking that streak stops.

Believe me, I'm not recommending you NOT make that play. I'm just saying I can't figure them out.

For me, it is more of a play against Wisconsin than a play on Minnesota..and yes, I know how silly that sounds. Minnesota has beaten a pretty good Air Force team and stayed with Cal for quite a while, although I am not really sure how good Cal is after their blow out loss to Oregon.
Definitely not the play of the century, but I like it.

What was the total for WVU-COL tonight? I saw the shit time TD take it to 58, and I had to figure that was close.

With 8 mins left in the 4th quarter, Army picks up their first passing yards of the game to get in Tulane territory. Desperately need 7 here.

I'm glad Army missed that FG. Fuck 'em. If they can't cover, fuck 'em.

Crazy games today. Wisc-Minn is great. scUM ties Mich St, now in OT.

And a big F-U to Ball St. and Toledo's pseudo-D. Score in the closing seconds to go over 28.

Damn U MICHIGAN! U figured that would be anti-hex going with them... Guess they are over-rated! 1 and 1 so far, with only Navy playing atm...

eh, 4-4 on the games. Could have been saved by Houston, but they wind up with their first loss after giving up 41 points in the second half...

Idaho holding on saved my day. Had the moneyline at +165.

Feel your pain.

0-2 with the Chargers getting marched on in the opening drive to try to save the day.
