As the fortunes improve for LSU football, so to does the prognostication skills of yours truly. After a dismal few weeks I rebounded with an 8-4 mark, good enough to tie for 2nd place. BBig24 pulled off another week win going 9-3. He(?) will both be emailed soon with details on how to collect his(?) ATVS KOOZIE OF POWER (same goes for PDixon and LSUCHADP, Chuckt33, youmrtooncesKruizer, and Valsufan, our Koozies are nearly here!

I suddenly look like friggin Nostradamus, calling for Duke to end GT's inexplicable undefeatedness and for UT to make the obvious cover at the Texas State Fair. Bama's near disaster at ARK and Penn St.'s mistake were the other bad bets of the week.

Utah might be sneaky good, K State is due for a big road upset, and Baylor might not lose again this year. Bama covering 12.5 is the most unconfident pick I can make this week, while ARK just might finally break their 2+year SEC losing streak and keep the West undefeated. Mizzou lost to Indiana and should not be picked for any remaining games this year. Notre Dame will hold off a late charge by the Noles to take the lead in the ACC coastal.

(Note on FSU-ND: Vegas has pulled this game due to the rumored pending suspension of Winston. Our rules remain the same. You have the ability to change all of your picks right up to the moment of each game's individual kickoff. If news breaks, you are responsible for adjusting accordingly)
