Weekly selections from the ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC.

Last week:

Jeff: 3-2 (20-20 on the year)
Brian: 1-4 (16-24 on the year)
ATL: 0-1 (2-4)

Jeff:

North Carolina Tar Heels (+6.5) at Virginia Cavaliers - It is a battle of the overachieving UVA vs. underachieving UNC. I'll take the points with UNC even though they have been very up and down all season. This pick is more against UVA than for UNC.

Boston College Eagles (-14) at Wake Forest Demon Deacons - BC has played well two weeks in a row and this game will be a much easier victory than at NC State was. I don't see Wake scoring more than 10 points and I see BC finding the endzone at least 4 times even though they'll probably start off the game poorly and give us fans a brief scare.

Syracuse Orange at Clemson Tigers (-14.5) - Will Syracuse score or will they get shut out the way N.C. State did? Clemson is a good team at home.

Ohio State Buckeyes at Penn State Nittany Lions (+14.5) - I'd love to see Penn State win this one and I don't know if that will happen. This will depend on the Penn State defense holding down Ohio State. The night crowd in happy valley will certainly help that defense do the job. This could be another VT-esque disappointment for the Buckeyes if Penn State can find the endzone a few times.

USC Trojans (PK) at Utah Utes - USC is not going to lose another PAC 12 game.

Brian:

Sigh...miserable season continues.

I'm never picking another ACC Coastal Division game. Ever.

Maryland Terrapins (+11) at Wisconsin Badgers - Bucky is just not that good this year. Take the points.

Ole Miss Rebels (-3.5) at LSU Tigers - Rebs keep things rolling with a convincing win in Death Valley.

Arizona State Sun Devils (-3) at Washington Huskies - No reason to think that the Sun Devils won't roll here.

Depressed after an 0-2 start. Feeling 0-5 this week.
