EVERYONE KNOWS IOWA STATE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEATEN OKLAHOMA! EVEN IOWA STATE KNOWS IT! Kansas can score points and the Jayhawks have a star in the making at running back with Khalil Herbert. Grab the points!

Arizona needed 327 rushing yards from its QB in order to squeak by a bad Colorado team. UCLA QB Josh Rosen is the real deal and will light up a pass defense that's ranked 106th in the country.

This Auburn team could possibly be the second-best team in the country. With a healthy Kerryon Johnson at running back and QB Jarrett Stidham finally catching his groove, Auburn wins big. Lay the points.

A Harbaugh team coming off a close home loss in a monsoon? Yeah, I'll roll with the Wolverines and that shutdown defense.

Who am I to go against the great Nick Saban?! I'm a winner! It's time the Tigers dethrone the Crimson Tide and take their place among the elite programs in the country. Deshaun Watson is the country's best QB. It's not close. This offense is the best Alabama will have faced in years. This Tigers' defense is ferocious. Look for the front seven to put incredible amounts of pressure on the young Alabama QB, Jalen Hurts. Give me Clemson. Give me the points. Give me the money line. Give me the unusual Dabo Swinney postgame presser. Give me all the Roll Tide tears!
