Well, go figure. Every ranked Pac-12 team lost this week. Luckily, I got one underdog right with Washington State.
Still, I spanked out a 4-of-10 which is very underwhelming against the spread. My season's running total is now 50-of-100.
Must do better.
My picks are in bold.

Ohio -8.5 v Ball State
The Bobcats have gotten better while the Cardinals are very inconsistent.
Air Force +12.5 at Boise State
While I have a special place in my heart for Boise State, my daddy was an Air Force captain. So yeah, go flyboys.
Tennessee -8.5 at Missouri
The Tigers have scored a cumulative 25 points in four games. The Vols, on the other hand, have scored 117.
Michigan State +13.5 at Ohio State
The Buckeyes have not bowled me over. This game will be closer than the experts think if Connor Cook has a mistake-free day.
Washington State -14.5 v Colorado
The Buffaloes will have to face a surging Cougar team without their leader, quarterback Sefo Liufau. That's a tough loss. Washington State has all the momentum now that it is bowl eligible.
Penn State +3.5 v Michigan
Penn State has improved in the past few weeks while Michigan has had to endure some last minute wins. This game could come down to a field goal so I'm taking the dog.
North Carolina -6.5 at Virginia Tech
The Tar Heels are the hottest team in college football right now. So why not go with the en fuego sky-blue boys?
Idaho +32.5 at Auburn
The Tigers have not lived up to expectations and are going to be looking ahead to the Iron Bowl. An upset would not shock me. No, really.
USC +4.5 at Oregon
The cards are all falling in place for USC. If the Trojans beat the Ducks, the planets will have aligned. Look for Ronald Jones II, aka, Rojo, to run all over the Ducks' defense.
