The football Gods have smiled upon us my friends, tonight we get to see a good one. #5 Auburn travels to Bill Snyder Family Stadium (not to be confused with the Bill Snyder Family steakhouse) to take on #20 Kansas State. it's 2-0 vs. 2-0, SEC vs. Big 12, Tigers vs. Wildcats, it doesn't get much better than that! Join us at 7:30 sharp to discuss all the happenings in this marvelous game. On to the picks...
Last Week's Results
Bill and Matt traversed a tricky week to go 9 and 1 and move up the rankings. Most, including you gentle BSD reader, averaged out at 8 and 2 so there won't be a great deal of movement. Nick, are you even trying anymore? Maybe we should let all the Nicks pick and average them, it might help them make decent picks.
Bill moves up a bit, he and Devon move within 1 of our leader bscaff. Ben shot par for the weekend which allows him to remain in 1st place.

The first two games start out with teams that have the word "Bowling" and a direction in the name, and no it's not West Virginia, so those will be boring beat-downs. Good ole Pitt returns to the Big Ten schedule which should actually be a good game against Iowa. Oh Hell, does this mean I have to actually root for Iowa? Damnit. Miami (of the Florida variety) travel north to take on a tough Nebraska team. Maryland and Syracuse might also be a gem in the rough.

The crew is bullish on Wisconsin, Sparty, Northwestern, Minnesota and the good guys, but unsure of BTPR. That's a little shocking to me, as well as Rutgers played against Penn State. Navy's always a fun team to watch by the way, I'll most definitely be tuning into that game. It looks like Northwestern will finally get one on the win side because they play Directional Illinois who boasts 2 wins over Valparaiso, and Drake sandwiched around a 37-3 blowout loss to the hands of the Badgers.
