Here's this week's slate of games to pick (POINT SPREADS MATTER):

  • Virginia Tech @ Pitt (+10)
  • TCU @ Kansas (+21)
  • Florida @ Tennessee (-3)
  • USC @ Stanford (+9)
  • Notre Dame @ Michigan St. (-6)
  • James Madison vs. West Virginia (-31)

This contest runs the length of the football season and the winner (we will award a Nike WVU T-shirt) is based on total picks correct over the season. So, if you missed any of the previous weeks, jump (back) in on the action this week.

Picks are due by Noon Saturday.

No one went perfect this week and now there's a couple of logjams in the standings this week. Staff picks and the peanut gallery leaderboard are after the jump...
