Back to level par on the spread picks for the year.  Most of the upsets did not pan out so I will take a stab at a few more this week.


Colorado @ West Virginia (-17.5) Too many points, Colorado is overmatched but will make it a decent game.  WV- 35- COLO 21


Pittsburgh (-6.5) @ Louisville This one scares me for some reason.  Upset special?  Lousiville 24- Pitt 21


Michigan @ Michigan State Mich State feels disrespected.  Go Green!  Misch St 27- Mich 24
