Week 8: GameDay Picks
Posted by Jimmy Atkinson
Both Kirk Herbstreit and I took Notre Dame last week, while Lee Corso improved his record by taking the Trojans. So, through seven weeks, the three of us are tied at 4-3. (I've now lost my last three games!)
Today, College GameDay is in Austin, Texas for the game between Texas Tech and Texas. This will be the last matchups of unbeatens until potentially December 3, when there could be two games of unbeatens (UCLA-USC and Georgia-Alabama). Of all the seven remaining unbeaten teams, the Red Raiders have the most to prove. Although they are 6-0, three of those wins came against Division I-AA schools. The Longhorns are no Division I-AA program. Today, the Texas defense, ranked 3rd in the nation, steps up and slows down the high-powered Red Raider attack. Vince Young rolls and Texas wins.
Jimbo's Pick: Texas 35 - Texas Tech 27
On the GameDay set, Herbstreit picked Texas "big" over Texas Tech and Corso donned a Bevo head. One way or another, we'll all be tied for at least one more week.
