Pedro the Penny’s Pigskin Prognostication-Palooza: Week Six
10/08/2009 § Leave a comment
Awwwwwwww, yeah… I’M BACK!! I know that someone was expecting me fall flat on my face last week (which I do a lot, statistically as often as I fall flat on my tail) and turn the picks back over to his sorry keister. He’s SOL, though, ‘cuz I tore it up again last week, going 5-2 and bringing my total to a wicked 11-3.
I know you’re anxious to get to my latest work of genius, but first why not stop on by my brand new Facebook page and add me as a friend? Now that we’ve got our social networking out of the way, let’s get this show on the road.
Nebraska @ Missouri: It’s the Big Twelve opener for both teams, and it could be a good one. Missouri’s 4-0 and averaging 37 points a game. Nebraska’s one point away from being 4-0 and gives up just 7 points a game. Nebraska has the talent edge, while Missouri has home-field advantage in a Thursday night game. Nebraska by 13.
Alabama @ Mississippi: This will be a crucial game in the battle for the top of the SEC West. Alabama has been one of the most impressive teams in the country so far, with a 5-0 start and a big opening win over Virginia Tech. Ole Miss has played 3 of their first 4 games on the road, but is still 3-1, with a 6-point loss to South Carolina. Mississippi by 13.
Florida @ LSU: The Big One. A battle of conference rivals and two top 5 teams. LSU wants badly to avenge the 51-21 beatdown the Gators administered last year, while Florida may have to keep their repeat title hopes alive without superstar QB Tim Tebow, who will likely be a game-time decision following a concussion suffered against Kentucky. LSU by 3.
Other Games: Boston College over Virginia Tech, Texas A&M over Oklahoma State, Ohio State over Wisconsin, Michigan over Iowa.
