Friday Quarterback

Okay so last week was awful on just about every count. Seems I picked the spread correctly in only 6 0f 20 top 25 games, but here on my ACC watch I went an awe-inspiring 3-3, making the overall mark a respectable 11-5. Now it's time to take things nice and slow, get back to winning weeks:

Navy at Duke:
Alrighty so here's the deal. Duke is not very good. Navy is even worse. Duke should get win number two, but I am tempted to call it close seeing as Navy has given teams like Maryland trouble this year. Let's just hope my ACC pride doesn't blind me here.
PREDICTION: Navy 17 Duke 27

Utah at UNC
Now I just can't get a handle on UNC. I try and I try, but I don't even think they know how good they are. UNC pulled off a big win at NC State, played close with GT and lost to Wisconsin that just beat Michigan. Utah is coming off an undefeated season but they lost their star QB and their coach. I don't want to be made a fool again, but UNC plays well in the ACC...not elsewhere.

Ball State at #21 Boston College
Ok this just in, Boston College is good. Ball State will not just lose, they will lose pretty badly. Let's just hope the Eagles get overconfident when the Cavaliers come to down (By the way, do they ever play road games???)

Clemson at Wake Forest
Oh my, remember when the Demon Deacons were scaring people two years ago. Now all the progress Jim Grobe made seems to be going downhill. I personally like and respect WF, but Clemson is much better than most people want to admit and this one will be over before you can say, "Bring on the Bowden Bowl".
PREDICTION: Clemson 31 WF 7

South Florida at #9 Miami
On a scale from 1-10 on the interesting-o-meter, last week this game was a -2. Now with South Florida's incredible upset over's a 3. Miami will not lose this game, but at least we can see if these guys are for real. I mean, no one said you had to be good to win the "new" Big East. Let's just grab some popcorn and enjoy the beatdown.
PREDICTION: SF 10 Miami 41

Syracuse at #6 FSU
Another game of some interest. Last year Syracuse almost pulled off the huge upset in the Carrier Dome, giving Virgina fans hope that was soon dashed in Tallahassee. The problem is this game is back to Seminole country now. The Orange are not as good, and FSU is...marginally better. Therefore...

#18 Virginia at Maryland
Okay, so I think by now you understand. This game really means something to these teams. For Virginia it is a must win to keep ACC championship chances alive. For Maryland, it is a must win to stop all the negative energy feeding into the program. I see this game being uncomfortably close. I would not be shocked (but pretty saddened) for Terps to win in an ugly rivalry game but...this year I've got higher hopes.
PREDICTION: UVA 27 Maryland 24

#3 Virginia Tech at West Virginia
Rivalry games are always nice to watch. Two years ago, the Mountaineers ruined the Hokies season with a 28-7 drubbing. The Hokies are better now and the Mountaineers are much worse. I would love to pick an upset but WVU barely beat East Carolina. VT is too loaded right now, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be proven wrong.
