5 for Saturday

24-25-1 on the season after 3-2 last week.  It was the first winning week in over a month.  Lets keep it rolling.

Penn State @ Ohio State (-17) 3:30 ABC

I do not think Penn State will be able to run the football and McFarve's luck has run out.  Penn State will need a great performance from their defense to have a chance in this one.  A blowout seems to beckon though.

Georgia @ Auburn (-8)  3:30 CBS

Distractions are possible in this game after a week of shoddy reporting by the New York Times and ESPN.  Allegations, true or not, ESPN had failed to get adeqaute sourcing until late yesterday to run a story like this.  They ran it anyways with a third handed source, and I feel bad Newton and Auburn.  I have just the slightest idea of what shoddy reporting, even if it turns out to be false can do to a person and a program. 

Georgia has a pulse now but are still not a great football team.  I'll take Auburn at home hear to outscore Georgia.  A victory over Georgia would put Auburn in the SEC Title game.

Virgina Tech (-4) @ UNC 3:30 ESPN

This should be a pretty good game by ACC standards.  In the roulette that is the ACC conference, you always bet on Tech though.  Butch Davis has done a solid job of keeping the Tarheels moving forward depsite the scandal surrounding his program.  If they manage to win this one, they will have a chance to go to the ACC title game.

South Carolina (+6.5) @ Florida  7:15 ESPN

Spurrier has done well against Florida in the past so I'll take the points here. It's unclear if Florida has truly turned the corner.  I picked South Carolina to win this division at the begining of the year and despite 3 losses they can still go to the SEC Championship.

Oregon (-19.5) @ Cal 7:30 Versus

Cal may come out and surprise here.  They are consistently inconsistent.  Sometimes they look great, other times they look awful.  Cal usually plays well at home, but does anyone really stand a chance against Oregon right now.
