From the barstool - College Picks

Here are some predictions for Saturday’s college games....

Ohio State @ Iowa (Buckeyes - 7.5) - a few months ago I called for this to be an upset....but I’ve changed my mind.....too many people are calling the upset - so that is when Jim Tressel fools you....Buckeyes win and cover - Ohio State 23-14

Alabama @ Florida (Gators - 14.5) - last year the Tide rolled Florida in Tuscaloosa....but Chris Leak is playing at a Heisman Trophy level....Gators are too powerful this year - Florida 31-13

Notre Dame @ Purdue (Fighting Irish - 14.5) - a legendary comeback last week for Weiss & Co.....but the comeback was on the arm of Brady Quinn....Irish still having problems running the ball (2.7 ypr).....Purdue will give the Irish a headache early, but Notre Dame wins in the end - Notre Dame 34-23

Michigan @ Minnesota (Wolverines -11) - the Gophers took the Little Brown Jug last season in Ann Arbor, then planted the flag on the Michigan 50.....Gophers have experience at qb.....but Michigan defense is too tough - Michigan 27-13

Oregon @ Arizona St. (Ducks - 1.5) - this is going to be a barnburner out west.....most east coast people don’t pay attention to the PAC-10.....2 good qbs in this game....Devils gave away the Cal game last week with 4 ints.....Arizona State is due for a big win - Arizona State 41-39

YSU @ Missouri St. (Penguins - 17.5) - the Penguins are coming off an impressive non-conference win over 16th ranked Cal-Davis.....YSU has owned Missouri St. - even back in the days when they were called S.W. Missouri St.....YSU will not lose conference opener - YSU 36-13
