*disclaimer* I am a proud alumnus of WVU - this will most likely be the last time I offer the Eers as a pick, but I am such a believer in QB Will Grier and his beautiful head of hair. The Mountaineers had a down offensive week last week and still managed to drop 46 points on Texas Tech. Look for the offense to get right here - I like the Eers and the Over too.

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.
