It’s another big college football Saturday after a slew of upsets last week hurt anyone trying to pick winners. The average score in ESPN’s College Pick’Em game was a season-low 25 points. Some big names went down as Texas A&M lost at home and LSU and South Carolina went down on the road.

In our Fantasy CPR group, mdaallen had the best week still managing to pull in 37 points and moving to the top spot in our competitive group. Mdaallen is all the way up to 119th in the overall competition after avoiding the upset carnage last week and is officially in the 100.0 percentile.

This week looks to be another challenging one with several all top-25 matchups and really even matchups as we head into more conference play for the big name schools. I’m running short on time this week, so I’ll just give you my picks with no comments, but make sure to check out Mike Marteny’s post for all his picks and commentary on this weekend’s games.
