Well, it is finally here, the first installment of Johnny’s Picks for 2010! It is about time college football is here!


Marshall @ Ohio State (-28.5)
Buckeyes roll early and often. OSU 45- Marshall 10


Pittsburgh @ Utah (-3.5)
An interesting game of varying styles. Defense and the ground game win out here. Pitt 28 – Utah 21

Miami (OH) @ Florida (-35.5)
The post Tim Tebow era begins … but not against THAT Miami. Florida 49- Miami (OH) -10

Northwestern (-3.5) @ Vanderbilt
If I could come up with a good Commodores song I would sing it now. Vandy 28 – NW- 24

Washington @ BYU (-3.5)
Jake Locker for Heisman! Washington 24-BYU 23

Cincinnati @ Fresno State (even)
I love pick em games- this will not be a defensive battle. I will take the experience with bigger success last year. The Natti – 35- Frez St. 28

Illinois vs Missouri (-13.5)
Blaine Gabbert will simply be too much here. Mizz- 29- Ill – 10

Colorado (-10.5) vs Colorado State

Connecticut @ Michigan (-3.5)
This one might have the maize and blue fans grumbling afterward. Mich 21- UConn 20

Oregon State @ TCU (-11.5)
Horned Frogs defense is just too strong – TCU – 24- OR St 10

Purdue @ Notre Dame (-10.5)
Boilermakers offense will carve up Touchdown Jesus. Purdue 35 – ND 31

Syracuse (-7.5) @ Akron
Gimmie the Zips in a cover – Syracuse 10 – Akron 7

Western Kentucky @ Nebraska (-35.5)
The Corn will roll in this one big time. West Kentucky has lost 20 straight. Nebs – 52- Hilltoppers – 10

Washington State @ Oklahoma State (-14.5)
Ok State lost ALL of their offense from last year – Ok St 29- Washington St 14

Utah State @ Oklahoma (-28.5)
Booooooomer Sooooooooner. The class of the conference this year. OU- 56, Utah St 10

    I’d like to see this each week. Are you going to continue with this throughout the college season?

    CU vs CSU will be great, the Rocky Mountain Showdown is always an exciting time with CSU beating up on the Buffs. Go RAMS!

    Huskers vs WKU…I wish I had the $40 for the PPV. I’d love to the see the Huskers in their debut game even if it will be an easy one for them. Ahhhhhh, football….it’s nice to have it back.

    nebraska should lose spots in the ranking if they don’t beat WKU by at least 49 and allow them to score more than 10 points. actually they should lose spots in the ranking just for having them on the schedule. PATHETIC!!!
