Top College Football Picks for the Weekend of Sept 17th

Top Play: Tenn/Flroida UNDER 49

OK, looks like the number has crested at 49, and is beginning to drop, I’m jumping on the 918kiss under 49 as my Top Play

In my opinion, this number is simply too high with 2 very good defenses, along with Tennessee’s QB issues, and the fact that I believe life could be hard for Florida QB Leak with an unproven O-Line in front of him.


Tennessee’s gameplan is the key to this total, a steady diet of RB Riggs on offense. I expect Fulmer to pound it, pound it, pound it with Riggs and pass when need be, or at opprotune times.

Defensively, I expect the Vols D-line is be able to put pressure on Leak without having to send the house, similar to what they were able to do two years ago. Florida coach Meyer understands that his Gators must be able to establish some sort of running game, to open it up for Leak. And I’m not convinced they can run it with any sort of effectiveness against this stout Vols front seven.

The word on Florida’s D

On defense, Florida’s guys have been impressive, albeit against inferior offenses. Luckily for their unproven secondary, Tennessee’s QB situation is a little bit of a question mark. As I stated earlier, they can expect to see a whole lot of Gerald Riggs in this big rivalry game.

Top Play: UF/UT UNDER 49

Regular Play: Wisconsin -3 over UNC
This game would be a bigger play if this were at Wisconsin, but I will tread a little lighter with the Badgers hitting the road for the first time this season.

Looks like the linesmakers are giving the Tar Heels credit for almost upsetting G Tech on the road last week, but I won’t The Jackets beat Auburn in a huge win on the road a week before, and I really question their motivation for this one, even though it was their conference opener. Chan Gailey’s play calling in the fourth quarter also left a lot to be desired. I have no explanation as to why he didn’t keep feeding the ball to P.J. Daniels.

Well, Barry Alvarez WILL feed the ball to his top runners, Calhoun and Booker, and do it often. Stocco looks like he’s improved tremendously, even though the opposing secondaries he’s faced thus far have left a lot to be desired.

NC has been outgained tremendously in their first two games, but I will give coach Bunting credit for playing a tough Boston College team to open up.
