Last week wasn't as hyped up as one would've wanted, although the slate of games after Saturday didn't disappoint. Here are this week's picks.
#2 Ohio State 35, #5 Oklahoma 31: The Buckeyes better not get off to a slow start like they did last week against Indiana. Otherwise, the Sooners will make this out of reach.
#6 USC 29, #14 Stanford 28: USC faced a Western Michigan team that pounded the ball relentlessly. Stanford is similar to WMU in that aspect, so watch for this as a potential trap game.
#3 Clemson 24, #13 Auburn 21: Clemson impressed with an astounding shut-out to kick off their season. However, Auburn has done well against Top Ten opponents in recent memory. Therefore, Clemson should be careful here.
#15 Georgia 35, #24 Notre Dame 28: The Fighting Irish tend to get plenty of hype based on their history. The Bulldogs tend to get plenty of hype based on being in the SEC. Someone will show their worth this Saturday.
#20 Washington State 45, Boise State 31: The Bronco defense will be tested greatly against the high-flying offense of WSU. Watch for Luke Falk and crew to put up gaudy numbers in this game.
Upset Watch: North Carolina over #10 Louisville
