5 for Saturday

4-1 Last week has me flirting with .500 at 24-26 on the season.

Nebraska @ Penn State (+3.5) Noon ESPN

Well even though the all time ratings record for a noon ESPN game was broken once this year (Michigan Michigan State) expect it to be broken again.  I can see the PSU players rallying around each other and getting to the Big Ten Title game.  I can see them also finally being exposed as an average team in the next three games. Can the general public seperate the scandal from the players and cheer them on or does it become impossible to cheer on Penn State?  I will be rooting against them as usual here. Nebraska shit the bed last week at home against Northwestern and were psychially man handle.  Dan Persa went out in the second half and Nebraska still lost.  So maybe they aren't that good either. I think PSU can cover the spread at home and I do think they will play with a ton of passion.

Michigan State (-3) @ Iowa Noon ESPN 2

Well I hope Iowa wins but they weren't too impressive last week even in victory.  Their defense looked better and more like a typical Iowa defense, but Michigan State should be able to take care of business.  Michigan State has revenge on their mind after being destroyed by Iowa last season.

Auburn @ Georgia (-13) 3:30 CBS

Georgia played well offensively in last years contest and Aaron Murray really showed his toughness.  Georgia will step on Auburn's throat and roll.

TCU (+15) @ Boise State 3:30 Versus

I am leary of picking TCU here but 15 points gives me some leeway.  TCU is clearly a notch or two below Boise this year but 15 points man seems like alot here.

Oregon @ Stanford (-3.5) 8 ABC

Stanford Stanford Stanford.  Revenge factor at play again here.  Stanford fell apart in the second half against Oregon last year like many times do.  Stanford will pound the ball,control the clock, and win the game late.
